Nickleback Best Selling Rock Band EVER

Nickelback becomes All Time Best Selling Rock Band!

Nickleback is now offically the top selling rockband of all time. Formed in 1995, they've been rising ever since. Nickleback is headed by lead vocalist and keyboardist, chad Kroeger, who has since then become a celebrity for his charming personality and rich vocal singing styles. Between the breakneck pace of their music and their colorful, creative videos, they've gained a huge following, and their music has grown with every album. They're a very young and passionate band, and there's no reason to think that Nickleback won’t continue to be successful well into this decade.

The Nickleback rock band is made up of the lead guitarist Chad Kroeger above drummer Daniel Adair, bassist Mike Kroeger, and rhythm guitarist Ryan Peake. The band has gone through some few member reshuffles, most notably with Adair replacing both Ryan vikedal and Mitch Guindon in the drumming section, but chad and mike Kroeger have stayed consistent. They formed a group with all of the members still very young, and they saw immediate success with their first album, the 2000's How you remind me. Despite their American Roots, they were dramatically more successful in the UK. This helped to establish them as an international pop-rock band and laid the foundation for their future success.

Their second independent album after being signing with roadrunner records, the state, was released in 2000 and saw them established as true international stars. The album went gold 500,000 albums sold in the UK, New Zealand, Australia and Canada. The album also went platinum in the United states. States! was spearheaded by lead single "Misery Business," which Chad Kroeger called "the most honest thing I've ever written."

Their next album was " silver side up", which was released in 2001 and is their best-selling album to date. It is also their most critically successful, with many critics hailing it as their most compact and artistically inspired effort. Even their music videos have been very successful, earning praise for their colourful backgrounds and creative concepts.

Nickleback is a band that is still on the rise, and we don't know where their plateau is. As of right now, they are touring around the world on the strength of their last album. They will be in the Europe this winter as one of the band's headlines the 2017 Reading Festival, and they'll be on tour until late September at the very least. As far as touring, they're a very prolific band, and you can find all of their touring information at their Website,

The sky is the limit for Nickleback, as their songs reveal a passion and skill that isn't rivalled by very many bands. Singer Chad Kroeger has established himself as one of the most recognizable voices and faces in rock music, which gives the band a firm place in mainstream music worldwide. We don't know how big this band will get ... but for now, we know they are the best all time selling rock band in history.
