Nickelback Information Continued
Nickelback's frontman, Chad Kroeger, is the dominant element; his vocals sustain the songs through verse and hook. The result is radio friendly hard rock with no frills; save some dubbing in a few of their songs for dramatic effect ("Figured You Out").
As with many bands, Nickelback's lyrics deal mostly with either acquirring romance, the loss of romance or the transition between love and hate in relationships. Earlier albums included songs discussing problems many can relate to, such as parental desertion and domestic abuse. The context provided in Nickelback's songs also make it easy to create a mental picture of the subject matter; they seldom if ever speak metaphorically.
The album Silver Side Up, with 2002's most-played single "How You Remind Me", was released on Tuesday, September 11, 2001. On that morning, they were on their tour bus traveling across Pennsylvania less than 10 miles from where United Airlines Flight 93 crashed.
