Nickelback often gets a bad rap for being so commercially successful, but that success wasn’t just given to them. Their debut album Curbstone was released in 1996 exclusively in Canada and received generally fairly critical reviews. Its follow-up, the 1998s The state was released independently and then reissued through EMI Canada the following year. The record’s lead single “Leader of Men” charted relatively high on some song charts in Canada and the US, setting them up for an even more successful third album.
Silver side up came out in September 2001, which was led by the massive “How You Remind Me” a few months before. The song went No. 1 on various charts and the album debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 upon release. The success of both the single and the album helped push it The state back on the album charts as well, and Nickelback were on their way to superstardom.
After the success of silver side up, Nickelback’s four subsequent albums all peaked at No. 1 – the 2003s The long road, The 2005s All the right reasons, The 2008s Dark horse and the 2011s Here and now. That’s not to say their two most recent albums No permanent address and Feed the machine were also not very successful as they both landed in second place. Not too shabby!
