  4. Nickelback's Album Covers

    Tue, Dec 18, 2012 at 3:29 PM 1 Comments

    Ever since I started listening to Nickelback, I have always thought that they have really cool album covers. Their first album, 'Curb' is mostly blue. It is a picture of a road with what looks like mountains on the side of the road. Their second album, 'The State', has a boy on the front of it who appears to be in a cell. Their third album, 'Silver Side Up' is mostly dark green and there is an...

  5. Rock Music

    I do like to listen a lot of rock music. My favourite rock bands include Nickelback, AC/DC, Theory of a Deadman, My Darkest Days, The Beatles, Creed, The Killers, Green Day, Nirvana, My Chemical Romance and more. Rock is a great genre of music in my opinion and there are some great bands/artists that make and write some amazing rock songs and albums.

    Nickelback have featured in a few music themed video games. In the Rock Band store, there is two Nickelback track packs, which I bought and have played a lot on Rock Band 3. 'How You Remind Me' is also on 'Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock'. Nickelback also have one song on the Guitar Hero store. The song on the Guitar Hero store is their song, 'Because of You' from their 2003 album, 'The Long...

  7. Guitars

    I've seen a lot of videos of Nickelback playing live and I have always thought that Chad and Ryan use some awesome guitars. From what I've seen Chad normally uses PRS' and Les Paul's. Of course, Chad has his signature Gibson Les Paul, which is called Blackwater. Ryan usually uses Gibson Flying V's and Gibson Explorer's. They both do always use really awesome looking and awesome sounding guitars.

  9. Guitar Solos

    I've always loved Nickelback's guitar solos. Songs they have done with awesome guitar solos are Just to Get High, Midnight Queen, Savin' Me, Someday, Old Enough, S.E.X., Shakin' Hands and many more. I've always admired Chad and Ryan's guitar playing. They are awesome guitarists who play some awesome guitar solos and catchy guitar riffs in most of their albums.

  10. Chad's Songwriting

    Tue, Dec 18, 2012 at 7:48 AM 1 Comments

    I have always thought that Chad Kroeger's songwriting is amazing. With Nickelback he can write great hard rock songs and softer songs that sound outstanding. He also writes really meaningful songs, but also writes really fun songs. He has written songs with Carlos Santana, Josey Scott, Avril Lavigne, My Darkest Days and Theory of a Deadman. He is definitely one of the best songwriters of all...
