Bio - from allmusic

Few bands did more than Nickelback to establish the force of slick, commercially minded post-grunge in the 2000s. Led by vocalist Chad Kroeger,
the band initially emerged in the late '90s as Canada's answer to Creed, prizing a blend of gruff vocals and distorted (yet radio-friendly)
guitars. After a handful of singles failed to gain much traction in Canada, "How You Remind Me" caught hold in 2001, eventually topping the
charts in several countries while gathering four Grammy nominations and four Juno Awards. Creed imploded several years later, but Nickelback's
popularity only grew as the decade progressed, effectively eclipsing those acts that had once informed the band's sound.

Chad Kroeger honed his frontman skills by performing with cover bands in Hanna, a small Canadian town 215 kilometers northeast of Calgary. After
growing tired of playing other people's songs, he borrowed money from his stepfather and relocated to Vancouver, where he recorded his first
batch of original material. Mike Kroeger, Chad's bass-playing sibling, decided to join his brother's band, as did fellow Vancouver transplants
Ryan Peake (a guitarist who had befriended the Kroeger in middle school) and Ryan Vikedal (a drummer from Peake's hometown of Brooks, Alberta).
Nickelback officially took shape in 1996 and quickly set to work, releasing two albums -- the Hesher EP and full-length album Curb -- before the
year was up. By 1998, the bandmates were managing themselves; Chad courted radio stations, brother Mike handled distribution, Vikedal booked
shows, and Peake maintained the band's website.

January 2000 saw the arrival of The State, Nickelback's second independent release. Issued at a time in which Canadian content requirements were
increased (and, accordingly, local radio stations had begun to desperately seek out homegrown product), the album fared very well on indie
charts. Nickelback toured ceaselessly in support of The State, logging approximately 200 shows while playing alongside other groups of the
burgeoning post-grunge genre. Nickelback's commercial appeal wasn't lost on the record industry, either, and The State's distribution rights
were quickly snapped up by Roadrunner Records in the U.S. and EMI in Canada. As the band continued to tour, Kroeger kept writing new songs, many
of which were honed in front of live audiences. Much of that material found its way onto Silver Side Up, which was produced by Rick Parashar
(who came to prominence in the early '90s by helming Pearl Jam's Ten, Alice in Chains' Sap, and Blind Melon's self-titled debut) and recorded at
Green House, the same Vancouver studio used during The State's creation. The combination of Nickelback's growing popularity and Kroeger's
focused songwriting propelled Silver Side Up onto album charts across the world, spearheaded by the hit single "How You Remind Me." Kroeger
capitalized on that exposure by producing another Vancouver-based band, Default, and collaborating with Saliva's Josey Scott for the Spider-Man
soundtrack. The Long Road then arrived in 2003, featuring an increasingly polished sound and another high-charting single, "Someday." While some
listeners criticized the apparent similarities between "Someday" and "How You Remind Me," The Long Road had little trouble maintaining
Nickelback's wide audience, eventually selling over five million copies worldwide.

In February 2005, Nickelback announced the departure of Vikedal. He was soon replaced by 3 Doors Down's former drummer, Daniel Adair, and
Nickelback returned to Kroeger's studio in Vancouver to begin work on another album. ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons and Pantera's Dimebag Darrell (who
unfortunately died before the album's release) were guests on the chart-topping All the Right Reasons, which arrived in October 2005. The album
proved to be Nickelback's most popular effort to date, remaining in the Billboard Top 30 for over two years and selling over seven million
copies in the U.S. alone. It also spawned five Top 20 singles, a feat that attracted the attention of veteran producer (and demonstrated hit-
maker) Mutt Lange. Nickelback traveled to Lange's home in Switzerland to share songwriting ideas; impressed with the results, they also enlisted
him to helm their next album. Recorded in a converted Vancouver barn, Dark Horse marked the band's sixth studio album upon its release in
November 2008. Nickelback's seventh studio album arrived nearly three years after the multi-platinum-selling Dark Horse. The 11-track Here and
Now, which was preceded by the singles "Bottoms Up" and "When We Stand Together," hit the streets on November 21, 2011.

The following year Kroeger began working on fellow Canadian rock star Avril Lavigne's eponymous fifth album. Shortly after their working
partnership began, they began dating and eventually married in early 2013. The band put together their first compilation, The Best of
Nickelback, Vol. 1, which appeared in November of 2013; the 19-track collection contained no new songs. In 2014 the band's contract with
Roadrunner expired and they decided not to renew, signing instead with Universal Republic for their eighth album, No Fixed Address. The album
included a number of departures from Nickelback's usual fare, including radio-friendly "What Are You Waiting For?," the politicized "Edge of a
Revolution," and "Got Me Runnin' 'Round," which featured a horn section and rapper Flo Rida. No Fixed Address appeared in November 2014.

Album Review - from allmusic

Always a tad bit cleverer than he's ever given credit for, Chad Kroeger is perfectly aware not only of his encroaching middle age but also the
shifting commercial marketplace and where Nickelback fit within that. No Fixed Address, Nickelback's eighth album and by some measure their most
adventurous record, doesn't find Kroeger abandoning his gift for brutish hooks, but he has moved his band away from its reliance on Paleozoic
power chords. This is entirely a production move. He writes the same kinds of songs, but he's swapped out canned digital distortion for burbling
cauldrons of EDM, looping rhythms so it appears they overlap (although he never hints at anything like a polyrhythm), ladling synthesizers into
every empty crevice, carving out space for Flo Rida on "Got Me Runnin' Round," and going full-bore disco on "Get 'Em Up" and "She Keeps Me Up."
The barely disguised double-entendre joke in that latter title shows Kroeger still finds smuttiness irresistible -- and he can still find fresh
new ways to be grotesque, as when he slips "you were busy motorboating on that blonde girl" into "Got Me Runnin' Round" -- but this isn't his
default mode: he'd rather layer on the sentiment, illustrated in both the power ballad "Satellite" and "Miss You," which could easily be
mistaken for adult contemporary pop from Y2K, and he even attempts something of a political stance on "Edge of a Revolution," where the asides
to the NSA are muddled but appreciated. Bizarrely enough, in this context all the electronic flirtation doesn't sound craven but rather crafty.
With a decade of hitmaking under his belt, he knows what keeps a song on the top of the charts -- and he knows what is currently on the charts,
as evidenced by the Imagine Dragons/Kongos stomp fueling the closing "Sister Sin" -- so he's shifting his band away from its antiquated post-
grunge into a sound that is self-consciously fresher and mature. It's not only a commercially canny move, it generates the best Nickelback
record to date.
