Nickelback Climbs Charts, But Remains Humble
October 7, 2005
With three platinum albums, seven Grammy nominations and monster hits like, "Someday," the guys from Nickelback are rock stars on a roll. They've sold 17 million albums worldwide, and their latest single, "Photograph," off their new album, "All the Right Seasons," is already the number one download on iTunes.
But when the Canadian rockers, Chad, Ryan, Mike and Daniel, stopped by the "Extra" studios, our music critic Jude Cole found four working-class guys from a small Canadian town, who haven't let all the fame and fortune go to their heads.
"We've had a good couple of years," Chad Kroeger
And while they're certainly not cocky, the guys of Nickelback were not afraid to brag about Hannah, Canada, in their new hit song, "Photograph." The guys call the song a tribute to the small working-class town where the band, itself, was born.
"At the time, I remember thinking, ‘I have to get
out of this town. We have to start a band. Let's do
something with our lives. There's no future for us here,'"
Chad recalled. "The older I get, the more I am
thinking back to that little town, thinking, ‘This is
a great place to grow up.'"
