Nickelback is a Canadian hard rock/post-grunge band in 1995 by Chad Kroeger, Mike Kroeger, Ryan Peake and then-drummer Brandon Kroeger. The band has since has several drummer changes including Mitch Guindon (1997) and Ryan Vikedal (1997-2005) and currently Daniel Adair (2005-). They band has also shown some pop and country influences in their music. Their first release was the EP Hesher in 1996, which was followed by the debut album Curb that same year.

Nickelback has since gone on to release several studio albums. After moderate success with their second album The State, which was originally released in 1998 in Canada only, but saw worldwide release in 2000, Nickelback received much critical acclaim for their third album, Silver Side Up, which was released in 2011. The album spawned several hit singles, including How You Remind Me.

Nickelback has gone on to enjoy much success with subsequent releases, which includes The Long

Necrotica
There was once a time in which post-grunge was actually considered a worthy successor to its parent subgenre grunge. Artists like Foo Fighters, Collective Soul, and Alanis Morissette began this new sound on the right foot, retaining much of grunge's distortion and intensity while utilizing more accessible song structures in the process. Things certainly got more bland and generic during the 2000s with bands like Puddle of Mudd, Theory of a Deadman, and Seether leading the charge, but little did people expect the explosion in sales and overall popularity from another up-and-coming act. Hailing from Canada, they are known as Nickelback.

What many people don't know is that Nickelback actually started as a straight-up grunge band, their first few releases Hesher and Curb having a much more distorted and heavy sound than in their later work. Unfortunately, this material was a bit bland and uninteresting for its subgenre and frontman Chad Kroeger's highly recognizable vocal style wasn't fully developed by this point. But with each successive release, their songwriting got a bit more fleshed out and you could see glimpses of the worldwide phenomenon they would become in the 2000s. Well, despite their career lasting for 20 years, they've never quite been able to replicate the success of their 2001 album Silver Side Up.

Nickelback's third effort was a huge leap up from The State, both in quality and sales... and why shouldn't it? The album's smash hit "How You Remind Me" was not only an iconic track for the band, but it was that for a reason. The song really represents the band's finest work, being highly melodic and catchy without abandoning the stronger elements of their first two records. The mix of intensity and poppy polish was infectious; luckily, the album it accompanies is quite good as well. Unlike Nickelback's later work, Silver Side Up fully embraces its alternative metal sound with much smaller room for ballads. In fact, "How You Remind Me" is among the softest tracks on this record, with heavy bangers like opener "Never Again" and "Just For" being much more prominent here. The songwriting is extremely tight and highly varied in its dynamics, offering soft verses and loud choruses in a move similar to Nirvana's work on Nevermind; however, it's usually not to the point of sounding too derivative.

Either way, what makes Silver Side Up so strong largely stems from the heavier songs. The songs are not necessarily technical marvels by any means, but Nickelback make up for it with songwriting consistency and some of Chad Kroeger's best vocal performances to date. The latter is especially notable in songs like "Never Again" and "Hollywood" in which Kroeger's voice really soars in the choruses, a great contrast to his more subdued and laid-back verses; this is a common post-grunge technique, but works quite well this time around because of Kroeger's charisma and overall presence in these songs. But in the end, it all comes down to the craftsmanship of the songs. "Just For" is still my favorite on here because of that great syncopated main riff; the F-minor motif is so catchy, but retains a distorted quality to maintain its edge throughout. "Too Bad" is also fantastic, the loud and climactic chorus being a wonderful payoff following such emotive and subtle verses; plus, its lyrics of poverty and abandonment are some of the most touching in the band's career. Naturally, some of the weakest tracks on here are the ones that bring out the more generic side of post-grunge music; "Where Do I Hide" and "Hangnail" are definitely those songs, sounding more like Theory of a Deadman's flavorless leftovers (I can see why Chad Kroeger would eventually work with them on their debut) than songs Nickelback really put their hearts into.

In fact, the second half of Silver Side Up as a whole doesn't always live up to classics like "How You Remind Me" or "Just For." It starts to sound as though the band are on autopilot, something that would unfortunately plague their work more drastically in the future. Despite this, I still think it's a very enjoyable little piece of post-grunge history. Is it life-changing? Of course not. But the songwriting can be quite excellent at times and the variety can be surprisingly strong when considering how many mid-tempo alternative metal songs are here. Overall, I'd recommend at least one listen if you're curious about Nickelback's beginnings as a worldwide smash, because this is certainly them at their finest.

I know. Nickelback. I should just stop there right? I would, but today I actually want to cover this album titled ALL THE RIGHT REASONS.

Nickelback is most notorious for their compositional repetitiveness, along with Chad Kroeger in himself. As another review of this album said: "Chad Kroeger sits atop the highest throne, wearing a crown of manure with "MUSIC IS DEAD" inscribed upon it. I think everyone in the world hates this guy and his voice for one reason or another.

ALL THE RIGHT REASONS, a definite hate breeder (and one of Nickelback's greatest hated album), does actually show some signs of talent from the members.

You cannot deny that these guys have potential. They can handle their instruments, and they know their way around their genre. Hate spread around the bandwagon goers ultimately was the downfall of them. I can't really bash that that much, seeing as if I had not grown up listening to this album, I would have jumped on the wagon myself.

Although Chad makes it impossible for those curious wagon riders to take a peek at their music to like it, I don't actually mind it. Just like Scott Stapp, I think they fit in well with the music.

I wouldn't exactly recommend this, but I would say that I like it very much.

Doomster
One fateful day, a goddess within the vast regions of the universe came across an empty space in the continuum, upon her epic travels. This goddess' name was Amae Koromo. Her long, shining blond hair fell down from her head, falling over her chest and blanketing her like a golden waterfall. Her blood red rabbit ears ascended from her scalp, stretching east and west beyond the sun. Upon her flat chest lay the pink bow of a thousand salvations plastered upon her blue kimino.

As she stared down into the empty void in space, she could not help but feel the need to fill this lonely, sad void. So, reaching into the sun, she pulled out a sphere of red hot fire and using her hands molded it into a colorful ball of solid dirt and liquid water. Satisfied by her creation, she placed the orb in the empty space and named it Earth.

For eons, she watched over this small orb of dirt and water, watching it evolve. Animals and life forms began to thrive and populate, evolving for eons and eons across the vast Earth. Koromo was still pleased with her creation, but she felt as though something was missing. So, using her ringfinger, she pointed its tip in the middle-section of the Earth (known now as modern day Africa) and created a new, more intelligent lifeform. She named this lifeform the ape.

For centuries, the ape evolved until the Earth's most marvelous creature had culminated - humans. Koromo was openly intrigued by these humans, and these beings looked up to her with great praise as their creator. "Oh, My Goddess," they would chant and pray, "thank you for granting us such grand Existence!"

Koromo smiled upon her great creations. If the humans were happy, she was happy. To prevent any possible suffering, Koromo decided to create a form of entertainment - music. The humans looked up to this music with great enjoyment. Koromo smiled as the humans began to experiment with this new godly gift.

As people evolved, however, so did this new form of entertainment. In the late 1990s, an obscure musical group named "Nickelback", fronted by a mysterious cro-magnon man named Chad Kroeger, had arrived from the depths of a land the humans had named Canada. As their first album was released, Koromo had personally listened to it, and she was shocked and appalled by such generic and uninspired musicianship. However, Koromo did not interfere. "To each his own" was Koromo's motto - if her beloved humans enjoyed this, that was their right.

However, the band's music simply continued to get worse and worse. The next decade, their release "All the Right Reasons" was created, and it had become a major religious spectacle and object praised by the humans.

As Koromo grazed her ears upon this fourty-one minute record, her ears suddenly and spontaneously bled. Shrieking in pain, she molded a few stars from the space and clogged her gushing ears with them. She could not believe what she had just listened to. 'How could my children create such boring, uninspired music?' she had asked herself time and time again, until it almost became a personal mantra.

Finally, one day, when religious staples such as Photograph and Rockstar were at their prime of popularity, Koromo finally decided to turn to her humans personally. Disappointed and upset, she asked them, "Why, my children? Why has such music appealed to you?"

The humans simply laughed. They laughed, and laughed, and laughed, until the grand canyon collapsed under the weight of sound. When Koromo asked them why they had listened to such devil work, they simply laughed and responded "Nickelback is our true god now!"

And so Koromo cried. She cried, and cried, and cried, until grand floods began to form throughout the spaces of air betwixt the vast, grand universe. Feeling betrayed by her children, she turned away, never to see the planet again, and disappeared into a vast vortex and out of mainstream existence.

As the humans triumphed, cruelly disowning their kind mother, Chad Kroeger stood upon the highest altar of the Earth, and a crown of manure labeled "MUSIC IS DEAD" was placed upon his scalp. As the new God, Chad Kroeger laughed boastfully. He knew now that he could control and manipulate his new children with ease.

TL;DR - this album blows. Hard.

'Here and Now' marks the seventh release of Nickelback and looks like they try to calm the music down and introduced more midtempo and ballads, probably to help them gain more new listeners through the radio and media. I've heard a friend said that he read a horrendous report on Classic Rock Magazine, stating this album a disastrous 20% rating, while I don't crazily think that way, this album sure has too many flaws.

A wall divided this album by two obvious sides and I call the first side their best, and the second one is their trash. 'When We Stand Together' is a great acoustical / commercial tune; 'Lullaby' and 'Trying Not To Love You' are two awesome ballads; and they're smart enough to save the best song for the last. 'Don't Ever Let it End' has the best chorus here and overall the song is the peak of this album.

Now, aside from 'Bottoms Up' which I think is still pretty good, the rest are average to horrible, like 'Midnight Queen', 'Gotta Get Me Some', or 'Everything I Wanna Do', I recommend don't even bother at all. Despite that fact, I concur that Nickelback should deserve more appreciation especially from the 80s rock community because I can hear the influence since 'Dark Horse', which is no coincidence was produced by Mutt Lange, a man from that decade.

This is an average modern hard rock album and if you prefer only to have couple of killers, try those tracks I mentioned before and forget the rest, but if you can find it for a $1 or $2 at your nearest pawn shop, this isn't utterly bad like some has told. 60%
