Feel the impression

Feel the impression with Nickelback

“Great music is that which penetrates the ear with facility and leaves the memory with difficulty. Magical music never leaves the memory”. As Sir Thomas Beecham rightly music is the food for the soul of all music lovers. In fact any kind of music leaves an impression on everyone. Nickelback is one such Canadian rock band that has left a great impression on its listeners. Nickelback was formed in Hanna in Alberta by Chad Kroeger, Mike Kroeger and Ryan Peake. As time passed by, Nickelback outshone as a rock band and received huge success in every part of the world. In fact their hit single "How You Remind Me" from their very third album scrapped to the zenith on the Canadian Singles Chart and the Billboard Hot 100. In fact the song as well as the album received huge acclamations which made Nickelback the third Canadian rock band to make this possible after the hit the “American Woman” by The Guess Who and the second being "You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet" by Bachman-Turner Overdrive.

When Nickelback started as a band they did not have enough funds to finance the recording of a song of an album. Chad had to borrow cash from his step father and then used a friend’s studio in Vancouver to record their first album. Nickelback then went on board on cross country tours across several countries and this led to high publicity and promotion of their album as well as them as a successful rock band. In 2000, Nickelback independently released their second full album which was titled “The State”. In fact during this time Canada witnessed the passing of a law that proved to be highly beneficial for Nickelback. The law stated that Canadian content requirement must be increased for Canadian radio. Now due to this law local radio stations were rigorously looking out for some Canadian rock bands that they could sing for them and promote the Canadian radio stations. It was then when Nickelback gained a lot as a result of this law and their popularity reached new levels.

Nickelback Music has won nine Juno Awards, an American Music Award, an MTV Video Music Award for Best Video from a Film (Hero), and a World Music Award for World's Best-Selling Rock Artist. The band also got nominated for seven Grammy Awards, four American Music Awards and twelve Juno Awards. In fact on the 4th of December 2006, Nickelback won three Billboard Music Awards out of five nominations.

Nickelback Music has proved to be one rock band that believes in the spirit of using music as medium to spread the message of love and peace. In fact their song “If Every One Cared” is out there to prove this point and make people realize that our world is a much better place to live in and it is we who can make this place a better place to live in. The song “If Every One Cared” has actually outshined its way and lived up to the expectations of the audience and hence proved to the audience to expect some good quality music from the band and that the songs are meant to leave an impression on everyone.
