Description

Nickelback is the 11th best selling musical act of all time with over 50,000,000 units sold and the 2nd best selling "foreign" group in the U.

Just like every other band that has to do this stuff, you wanna get a chance to see your fans all around the world. Because we feel that you can make a good record and be late, but you can’t, or you shouldn’t, make a shitty record to be on time. The spirit of rock commercialism courses through Get Rollin’, not only as Nickelback’s greatest sin but their most stable crutch. 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. The 103 third parties who use cookies on this service do so for their purposes of displaying and measuring personalized ads, generating audience insights, and developing and improving products.The album was released on November 18, 2022, with the lead single, San Quentin was released on September 7, 2022.

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. 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? You mightn’t like it, and even from the position of recognising there is quality here, it’d be nice if more creative bands got even a fraction of the slice they have, but there are more worthwhile entities in the music industry to hate than this. Highlights being San Quentin , Steel still rusts , Does heaven even know your missing , Skinny little missy , vegas bomb . Well, we should have been making a record a lot sooner, with all that time off [due to the coronavirus pandemic].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? Though this isn’t an easy listen, Body Void’s newest journey into the abyss yields a shrieking, industrial mutation of doom-metal that couldn’t fit into the blackness around them more perfectly. 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.

And to a degree, you can kind of let them off the hook for it, seeing as vast experimentation has never been in their nature. 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. If anything, it’s a similar end to where a lot of country music was in the 2010s, slightly in execution but mostly in ethos. 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). Because, for as much as they’re retaking every step they’ve ever made on this album, they can still be okay at it.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. Yes, Get Rollin’ can be a pretty middling, pretty unimaginative album at the best of times, but if that still constitutes a belief of ‘worst band ever’, that just feels a bit disingenuous overall. And after all, the album still averages out in usual Nickelback fashion, in which there’s no edge or transgression, or ambition outside of the broadest plays for the down-the-middle rock crowd. San Quentin is the obvious standout, as the raucous, driving rocker pivoting closer to metal that’s become an invaluable asset for them in later years, but as far as middle-of-the-road rock goes, Steel Still Rusts and Standing In The Dark take their place among the band’s established canon with fair ease. 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.

But it almost feels compulsory to start off any long-form discussion of Nickelback with a statement like that, as it has done for years. Mike Kroeger spoke of his personal desire to move in more of a heavy metal direction, or wanting to do an album of Slayer cover songs.Totally different again is High Time, a country metal stomp that Cadillac Three would sell a few horses for, while Vegas Bomb is a shuddering metallic creature powered by gutsy twin guitars. We don’t have one record that really sort of sounds the same in terms of songwriting from top to bottom. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. Granted, that’s not to excuse the clangers that are also prone within that usual package, of which Get Rollin’ continues to have its fair share. In truth, it’s probably the ballads that fare the worst, between nostalgia-pandering to the nth degree on Those Days, and a slushy love song in Does Heaven Even Know You’re Missing?
