Ive heard that all of Nickelback's music is the same for FAR too long. It's time someone finally puts this fallacy to rest. I'm going to go through every single Nickelback song starting from their first hit album, Silver Side Up, to their current album, Feed The Machine, and prove that literally every single song is different from one another.

Note - there will be songs that fall under the same category. HOWEVER. The initial category is extremely broad. And every single song has a different meaning, if analyzed deep enough)

With that said let's get started.

So there you have it. With the exception of two, maybe three songs, literally every single song has a completely different meaning or is told from a completely different point of view.

So now that we've established that Nickelback doesn't sing about the same topic all the time, let's address the popular belief that all Nickelback songs SOUND the same. This is extremely untrue. You go and listen to "the betrayal act III" and then listen to "she keeps me up" and then tell me all Nickelback songs sound the same. Let me just save you the time, they sound completely different. But I'll admit, most of Nickelback's songs do follow the same kind of rhythm.

HOWEVER, let me make this clear to everyone right now. If you take nothing else from this post, understand this. EVERY SINGER/BAND FOLLOWS THE SAME FORMULA FOR THEIR SONGS. Yeah you heard me. EVERYONE. It doesn't matter what genre you look at either. Aerosmith, Kenny Chesney, Avenged Sevenfold, I could go on and on and on and on and on.......ALL of these bands/singer's follow the same kind of pattern. All Aerosmith songs consist of a catchy beat and Steven Tyler squealing his lungs out. All Kenny chesney songs are about partying with friends. All avenged sevenfold songs consist of screaming and electric guitar solos. Again, I could do this all freaking day. EVERYONE follows a formula for their music. DO NOT criticize Nickelback for doing what literally EVERY SINGER EVER does.

In all honesty, Nickelback isn't all that hated when it comes to people who actually know what they're talking about. Nickelback is great friends with some extremely talented and successful musicians. Daughtry, Coldplay, and even Alice n chains are fans of the band. The only real hater of the band is some satanic screamo punk named Corey Taylor...

It's time to stop hating one of the most successful bands of all time. Nickelback isn't the joke here. It's all the retarded haters, now THAT'S THE JOKE. if Nickelback was really as bad as the haters say, they wouldn't be constantly topping the charts. And They wouldn't have sold over 50 million albums.

Nickelback for life.

Does anyone know a song I can listen to by this band about losing a loved one? Because I REALLY need one right now.

Silver Side Up turned 15 years old on 9/11 2016.

My favourite Nickelback song from silver side up to no fixed address:

Silver Side Up: How You Remind Me
The Long Road: Someday
All the Right Reasons: Photograph
Dark Horse: Never Gonna Be Alone
Here and Now: Lullaby
No Fixed Address: Edge Of A Revolution

Hard to pick a favourite out of those because there fantastic albums didn't like curb and the state much just couldn't get into it

My favorite song from each of the 8 albums:
Curb: Just For (original)
The State: Leader of Men
Silver Side Up: Never Again (How You Remind Me is a close 2nd)
The Long Road: Feelin' Way Too Damn Good
All the Right Reasons: Savin' Me
Dark Horse: If Today Was Your Last Day
Here and Now: When We Stand Together
No Fixed Address: What Are You Waiting For?

My list of Nickelback albums that range from best to least great but still amazing:
1: All the Right Reasons
2: Here and Now
3: Silver Side Up
4: The Long Road
5: The State
6: No Fixed Address
7: Dark Horse
8: Curb
