Nickelback tends to be a band that people either love or hate but I’ve never been quick to join on the hate train so I wanted to do my best to give them a fair reaction.
The band got their start in the early 90s as a cover band under the name Village Idiot and later changed it to Nickelback. Soon after lead singer Chad Kroeger asked his stepfather for $4000 so they could record their first demo.
In 2000 they released The State, their second full length album which produced 2 Top 10 rock hits and reached number 3 on the Billboard Top Heatseekers album.
Their third album fared even better peaking at number 2 on the Billboard 200 and selling 177,000 copies in the first week alone.
The band has gone on to become one of the most commercially successful Canadian bands of all time and has sold more than 50 million albums worldwide.
Today I’ll be reacting to a live performance of “Burn It To The Ground” at the Stock Car Crash Challenge.
I think if you’re willing to approach the performance with an open mind, you’ll be able to see why fans of Nickelback appreciate them.
Please be sure to share with me what you thought, good or bad!
