Nickelback is a Canadian rock band formed in Hanna, Alberta, in 1995 by Chad Kroeger, Mike Kroeger and Ryan Peake. Their hit single "How You Remind Me" from their third album, Silver Side Up reached the top on the Canadian Singles Chart and the Billboard Hot 100 at the same time, making them the third Canadian band to accomplish this, the first being The Guess Who with "American Woman", the second being Bachman-Turner Overdrive with "You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet".
Since their smash hit "How You Remind Me" in 2001, the band enjoyed major commercial (although not critical) success. Nickelback sold over 14 million albums in the United States and over 1.7 million in Canada, their worldwide album sales totaled almost 25 million.
The band has won nine Juno Awards, an American Music Award, an MTV Video Music Award for Best Video from a Film (Hero), and a World Music Award for World's Best-Selling Rock Artist. The band was also nominated for seven Grammy Awards, four American Music Awards and twelve Juno Awards. On December 4, 2006, Nickelback won three Billboard Music Awards out of five nominations.
Nickelback's latest release, All the Right Reasons has already sold over 5.3 million albums in the United States and over 7 million albums worldwide. A year and a half after its release, it still regularly appears in the top 20 of the Billboard 200.
