N is for Nickelback

Nickelback is a Canadian rock band that started in Hanna, Alberta, in 1995. The band consists of Chad Kroeger, Mike Kroeger, Ryan Peake, and Brandon Kroeger. The band deals in almost all kinds of music aside from hard rock and grunge rock, such as pop and country. They are known as one of the most successful Canadian-based rock bands, selling as many as 35 million albums all over the world. They are the #11 best selling band in the 2000s and #2 best selling foreign band after the Beatles in the 2000s.

How the band got it's name is Mike Kroeger worked at Starbucks previously and he would say "Here's your nickel back".

In 2001, they released the album Silver Side Up, which went to #1 on the Mainstream and Modern Rock charts and Billboard Hot 100, where it remained #1 for a year.  In 2003, they released their The Long Road album, which includes the track Someday, which I have to say is one of my bigger fave songs by Nickelback. This went to #3 on the Mainstream charts. In 2005, their All the Right Reasons album debuted, which includes the tracks If Everyone Cared, Photograph, Savin Me. This is by far one of my most favorite Nickelback albums and also one of the better ones.
