Reconnect With Rockers with Terrie Carr

RECONNECT WITH ROCKERS WITH CHAD AND RYAN

It always blows my mind when I hear Nickelback jokes! So many solid rock tunes, always killer live and clever songwriting. To me THEY personify the early 2000’s.
When I had the chance to have frontman Chad Kroeger and Guitarist Ryan Peake check in as their new single
“San Quentin” was being released, I jumped at the chance to have the guys on! I am a “Backer”!

In this “Reconnect” webisode we discuss the blessings and curses of having so many chart toppers, the release of their new record (In November) “Rollin’ Out” , their new single “San Quentin” touring, heavy tunes, the fanbase and more.

Here are a few Nickelback stats-
The 11th best selling musical act of all time- (over 50 Million Units Sold)
Over 26 musical awards.
The 2nd best selling foreign group of the 2,000’s (behind the Beatles)
19 Billboard Hot 100 Singles
Most played radio song of the 2000’s (the entire decade) – How You Remind Me
Over 4.7 Billion Streams

Here are a few of their biggest rock radio chart topper tunes- (and some of my faves from the band!)

  • How You Remind Me - 2001

    The most played song of the 2000’s (the entire decade) this one put the band on the map! Hit #1 on the rock charts.

  • Too Bad- 2002

    Another Nickelback #1, Too Bad had some heavy riffs and heavy content.

  • Never Again- 2002
