The How You Remind Me hitmakers, who were due to play at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre in Boondall, were accused of making crimes against music by officials at Queensland Police Service.

Cops posted a spoof wanted poster showing a cartoon image of the group on the microblogging site, adding the caption, "Urgent police warning: Men matching this description expected to be committing musical crimes in Boondall tonight."

The rockers, who have not responded to the jibe, are currently embarking on their No Fixed Address Tour, which concludes in Minsk, Belarus in December (15).
