Nickelback Biography


Nickelback is a rock and roll band founded in western Canada in 1995. The name derived from the nickel in change Mike Kroeger frequently had to give customers back in his job at a Starbucks coffee shop.

The core of the band hails from Hanna, Alberta. They are now based in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Nickelback has achieved major success on rock radio, scoring 10 Top 10 hits since 1999; their song 'Hero' was played for the closing-credits of Spider-Man. They have also crossed over to mainstream radio, scoring multi-format smashes on last two albums. Critics have often pointed out that 'How You Remind Me', a Nickelback song that received extensive airplay in 2001, and 'Someday', a popular song in 2003, are almost perfectly identical except for lyrical content.
