|ok..this site is about Nickelback..no freakin duh
right??? i will talk about of their albums and stuff.
The members in Nickelback are
The State was their first album. It was a firecracker debut. The songs "Breathe" and "Leader of Men" were both in the Top 10. Guitarist, Ryan Peake said "The snowball effect of the album was phenomenal. We started doing well in Canada and then the buzz in the States took over. It totally went off the hook and was a great kickstart."
Silver Side Up was their sophomore album was greatly anticipated. Their hit single "How U Remind Me" was written 15 minutes before they went to studio. "That's the cool thing about making music-sometimes the best comes out totally unexpectedly. That's the cool thing about making music" said Chad Kroeger, singer and guitarist.
Mike Kroeger, bassist, worked at a Starbuck's and that was the change he regularly gave for coffee(a nickel). The price was $1.95. When he gave the customers their change he said "He is your nickel back."
Further listening to Silver Side Up, you
quickly realizes that Chad's lyrics have become far more personal and
insightful. “I got so much slack from everyone for writing so metaphorically
on the last record,” Chad admits. “I thought that if I kept it all
metaphorical and vague, then I could keep it all secret.” Well, the secrets
are revealed on Silver Side Up, as Kroeger and company squarely face
off with their demons. Kroeger becomes subdued when discussing “Too
Bad.” “That's about my dad,” he says quietly. “The chorus 'It's too
bad, there's no time to rewind/Let's walk, let's talk' is about how my father
was never around when I was growing up. That's me just wishing that he had
been there. It's about the wish to turn back time and to fix things that are
completely beyond your control.” Another example is “Never Again” a song
inspired by bearing witness to countless broken homes “He's drunk again/It's
time to fight/She must have done something wrong tonight/The living room
becomes a boxing ring/It's time to run when you see him.” Not only is it one
of the more lyrically profound songs, it's also one of the standout tracks
