Are Nickelback really as bad as everyone thinks? How did these four nondescript Canadians earn a worldwide reputation as a living musical atrocity? At long last, one of rock and roll's most notorious turds is finally getting polished!
In the first of a four-part series, we cover the band's origins in the remote town of Hanna, Alberta, where frontman Chad Kroeger grew up committing small-time burglaries and selling mushrooms. From there we track how the band hustled their way to the top, meticulously engineering their songwriting for commercials success and scoring one of the biggest hits of the 2000s with "How You Remind Me".
"Are we having fun yet?" Hell yeah we fucking are! Get ready, folks. This is gonna be one wild ride...
Remind us of who we really are on Social Media:
