Help Removing exhaust

I'm trying to remove the back half of my exhaust. All i need to do is get this one nut off the bolt, and it will just come off... the problem is on the other end of the bolt is a kind of nut that is round, not hexagonal, and is supposed to have a little "finger" that sticks out, and hits the exhaust pipe keeping it from turning. That way you only need one wrench to undo the bolt. The problem is that the little finger broke off, so I can't remove the nut because it just spins the whole bolt... any ideas how i can get the nut off? Sorry about the camera picture.

oh lol i see

I finally got it off, cut the parts with holes out, and replaced them with new piping from autozone... it was a lot harder than i thought. it took me all day yesterday, and 10:00 am to 1:15 pm today most of it was just being able to lift the whole exhaust with one arm, while removing/replacing the rubber hangers with the other, and having two bad shoulders. My arms are hurting lol.
