Nickelback is a Canadian rock band formed in Hanna, Alberta by Chad

Kroeger, Mike Kroeger, Ryan Peake and then-drummer Brandon Kroeger (the

current drummer of Nickelback being Daniel Adair). The band's music may

be classified as Post-Grunge, along with groups like 3 Doors Down,

Finger Eleven, and Daughtry.


Although the founders of the band hail from Hanna, Alberta, a small town

east of Calgary, they are now based in Vancouver, British Columbia,

Canada. The band's name originates from the nickel in change that band

member Mike Kroeger gave customers at his Starbucks job—he would

frequently say, "Here's your nickel back".[11]


The band is signed to EMI at home and Roadrunner Records for the rest of

the world. In July 2008, the band signed with Live Nation for three

touring and album cycles, with an option for a fourth cycle. The

contract includes recordings, touring, merchandise and other rights.[12]




Nickelback's first release was a seven-track EP called Hesher in 1996.

In the same year Nickelback recorded their first full-length album Curb.

"Fly" was released on Hesher and Curb and was the first single produced

by Nickelback. It did not chart and was only played on local radio



Nickelback performing in Dublin in 2006.


The following album The State was recorded in 1998 and was released as

an independent record the same year. Nickelback signed a record deal

with EMI and Roadrunner Records. The State was then re-released in 2000

by EMI and Roadrunner Records; it was certificated gold in Canada and

the United States.


In 2001, Nickelback released the album Silver Side Up, which propelled

them into the mainstream. The single "How You Remind Me" was a huge

success, peaking at #1 on both the American and Canadian charts at the

same time. In the U.S., it was a #1 single on the Mainstream and Modern

rock charts, as well as the pop chart. It also peaked at #2 on Adult Top

40. "How You Remind Me" became the Billboard Hot 100 #1 single of the

year for 2002. The next single was "Too Bad", which also hit #1 on the

Mainstream Rock Chart and had a small amount of success on the pop

chart. The final single from the album was "Never Again", another #1 hit

on Mainstream Rock.


In 2002, Chad Kroeger worked with Josey Scott on the Spider-Man theme

song, "Hero". This also featured Tyler Connolly, Mike Kroeger, Matt

Cameron, and Jeremy Taggart.


In 2003, Nickelback released The Long Road. The lead single was
