The brand new Nickelback album “Here and Now” is due for release on “Nickelback Monday” November 21st 2011 & you can bet the “hipster” music critics have already pre-written their scathing reviews.
Personally I’ve always loved the band. Frontman & principal songwriter Chad Kroeger has always been a killer radio interview, pretty much just a dude you’d wanna get drunk with. And he couldnt give a shit about critics! Last time I checked thats what real rock music was about – not giving a fuck. Just doing it.
The reality. Nickelback is the 2nd best selling foreign act in the U.S. behind The Beatles for the 2000s. They were the highest-ranked band and the highest-ranked rock artist in the Billboard “Artists of the Decade” list published December 2009. Billboard also named Nickelback as the Adult Pop Artist of the decade.
If you’ve seen them live you’ll know they put on a live hard rock show to match any of the global heavyweights. They bring the riffs…they bring the power ballads. Whats not to love?
On the last Nickelback Australian tour my mates & I from Triple M Sydney’s GRILL TEAM caught up with Chad. You can listen here as part of the ROCK REVELATIONS podcast series >
