Personalities | Nickelback | Twenty-First Century | Rock

(Vocal/instrumental group, 1995–present)

Canadians Nickelback – Chad Kroeger (vocals), Ryan Peake (guitar), Mike Kroeger (bass) and Daniel Adair (drums) – came to prominence in their home country via a law that stated a certain percentage of the radio play must be homegrown. This coupled with Kroeger’s distinctively gravelly vocal style lead to massive exposure and a snowballing interest in the post-grunge rockers. 2001 single ‘How You Remind Me’ took the swagger of grunge imbibed with an arena mentality and proved irresistible to the rock masses.
