Since their 2001 breakthrough hit song “How You Remind Me,” Nickelback has sent 20 singles rocketing onto various Billboard charts. In 2009, Billboard also named Nickelback“Top Group of the Decade.” Their now classic album All the Right Reasons ensured Nickelback an indelible place in rock history, having spent a staggering 112 consecutive weeks in the Top 30 of the Billboard Top 200, certified eight times platinum in the U.S. and having sold more than 11 million copies worldwide, topping charts in four countries.
