Welcome to week TWELVE of "A LESSON FROM THE SILVER SIDE", a look at what is going on with Nickelback and their latest release Silver Side Up... As always, we start off with where you can see the band. As they have been, and will be for some time to come, you can see them on the road. Nickelback currently has 12 dates left on their current US headline tour with Saliva and Default. The show is currently in Florida, and will wrap up on 12/18 in Pittsburgh, the City Of Champions. After that, it is back home to Canada for the holidays. Nickelback will be playing a New Year's Eve show in BC, and then start up again with their full 'tour on' come mid-January - a three week tour of Canada. Default will also be on the bill. Here's a new place to see Nickelback - word has it that "How You Remind Me" will be the WB Video of the Day on Dec. 13th. Not exactly sure what that means, but apparently the video will be shown in lieu of a commercial in various markets once between the hours of 8am - 9am and then again between 3pm - 4pm. Moving right along, we go straight to the facts. This week's facts are as follows: Random Fact #44 - as always, we shall start out with radio play. After 13 weeks straight as #1 on the mainstream rock format, Nickelback's "How You Remind Me" has been beaten out - the track is now at #2. Twas a great run... However, the song is still #1 at the Modern and Active Rock formats for what is now the 12th and 10th weeks in a row, respectively. Numbers from the new single "Too Bad" will start being told shortly... Random Fact #45 - God Help Us All...we rec'd an email last night from Sidney...you might remember her from such Random Facts as Random Facts #6, #20, & #29. Well, she hipped us to something new - Nickelback's first EP, Hesher, is currently being bid on at Ebay. The price is now up to $305.00. We shit you not. Check it out for yourself HERE. God Help Us All indeed... Sidney, thanks for the line. Random Fact #46 - Our last random fact this week comes to us from someone here in our own finance department, Kareen. Her story is based off a recent vacation to Jamaica. Her words are as follows: Imagine that! a small island like Jamaica. My second day there I had lunch with some friends, and in the midst of our talking about videos and music, one of the girls from the crowd said "I love that video with the girl that keeps appearing in his mind and at the end he brushed her away..." oh my! could that be Nickelback? I said "are you speaking of Nickelback, How you remind me..?" "Yes" she chanted. I was shocked. Since that day I heard Nickelback everyday on the radio while I was there. It was amazing, since us Finance people never really get to see what's happening out there it was a memorable experience to be so far from home and still feel like I was right here in NY........ It's true. They are all true. We have one last thought to leave you with tonight, and it comes from the Raynger. Whilst watching ESPN's NHL 2-Night a couple weeks back, the Raynger relays that one of the anchormen uttered "Chad Kroeger is to Nickelback as Bobby Holik is to the New Jersey Devils." It's true. One question, why J-E-R-S-E-Y??? Until next time, the has been a Lesson From The Silver Side... new release Silver Side Up in stores now
