About this deal

Nickelback is the 11 th best selling musical act of all time with over 50,000,000 units sold and the 2 nd best selling “foreign” group in the U. On August 14, 2020, the band released a cover of the Charlie Daniels Band song " The Devil Went Down to Georgia", featuring Dave Martone. Yes, Chad Kroeger still sings with that voice, but he’s got conviction; there’s enough snarl to play the hard-edged rockstar as there is earnestness to sell his pretensions towards depth and sincerity. Tidal Wave's summery haze is deliciously strung out, one of those hypnotic songs that gets better with each play, and its dreamlike lilt contrasts with Steel Still Rusts' serious-as-cancer cautionary tale.

The branding they’ve picked up has made it an unavoidable thorn to be pulled at, though somewhat futilely given that any critical reevaluation of Nickelback is effectively pointless. They’re not the best either—not by a long shot—but they’ve clearly got some talent and know what they’re doing when it comes to the music they’re making.

Amongst all these accolades, they’ve also been named Billboard’s “Top Rock Group of the Decade”, and they have received a staggering nine Grammy Award nominations, three American Music Awards, a World Music Award, a People’s Choice Award, twelve JUNO Awards, seven MuchMusic Video Awards, and have been inducted into Canada’s Walk of Fame (2007). As anticlimactic as that may seem, it’s the truth; Nickelback are too uniformly competent to outright hate, and them boiling down their entire musical existence to a science is clearly still working as far as easy, accessible, unchallenging rock goes. During a July 2021 interview, bassist Mike Kroeger commented when asked about the band's progress on new music saying "That is happening right now" he said of the forthcoming LP. Some could point out High Time as the low point, with its jaunty southern-rock croak that further compounds how lame of a song about weed this is, as well as how infernally pleased with itself it sounds about the exact same thing. On May 12, 2023, Nickelback announced an expanded deluxe edition of the album will be released on June 3, 2023, with an alternate blue cover.

The former is the briefest to qualify—there’s all the chest-puffing and classic rock worship fed through, holding as a swaggering, masculine-coded base that indulges in its softer side too. And then once the riff was down, I think I screamed out this line, 'Can somebody please keep me the hell out of San Quentin? This doesn’t beat the last album which was amazing but there are so many catchy songs on this album it still makes it addictive to listen to . The album's lead single " San Quentin" was released on September 7, 2022, accompanied by an official lyric video. We don’t have one record that really sort of sounds the same in terms of songwriting from top to bottom.Maybe that’s a bad thing—after all, even a bad album can be more fun to rip apart than a boring one—but at this stage, what’s the point in even singling Nickelback out for that?

Even coasting like they evidently are here, they’re still leagues above the bands whose entire careers have been dedicated to copying their lead, and that’s because Nickelback, if nothing else, have some charm to them. It’s all playing the hits, as it were; if Feed The Machine’s assertions to rising up were a bit too radical, Get Rollin’ is back to good ol’ terra firma with another helping of everything the fans know and love.The Canadian megastars don't merely get away with it – the song's an energised strutter with cool hooks, licks that Lenny Kravitz would nod to, and a flyaway guitar solo that's as good as anything they've done. This is Nickelback after all, a band whose deepest foray into real creativity was a collaboration with Flo Rida, and for whom new albums act as tools to shore up a legacy that’s pretty much set in stone at this stage. To project further, it’s not an audience that demands to be challenged (they’ve stuck around this long after all), and probably holds more—for lack of a better term—traditional values that music like this can appeal to.
