Classic Album Review: Nickelback- All The Right Reasons

I challenge anyone to find a worse album than this right here. Listen to Soulja Boy and you’ll find yourself close, maybe give Kevin Federline a listen and you could possibly be there, other than that you don’t really come near this monstrosity. 

In 2005, Chad Kroger and co spent around five measly months making an album, and we all fell into a parallel universe as it managed to debut number one in America selling over 300,000 copies in it’s first week, and over 10 million copies to date. These are astronomical numbers, something that will leave me scratching my head for as long as I live. Why did 10 million people in America buy this album, was it purely down to the success of Rockstar? Did Avril Lavigne treat herself to a few thousand copies? Was it simply just the birth of modern meme’s as we know it?

I was eight years old when this album came out, nine years old when Rockstar and Photograph blew up, and I’m not even going to lie, I liked it. Possibly because it was a little catchy and Chad Kroger done that Spiderman song, but when you look it as a 20 year old looking back, it’s some of the most incoherent garbage to ever get popular. This is up there with David Guetta and The Chainsmokers as some of the worst popular music ever. Particularly Rockstar which managed to be one of the biggest tracks of the 2000’s. It’s become a rock anthem for the ages that everyone knows but nobody loves. If Chad Kroger and his noodle haircut weren’t such a funny meme, nobody would ever listen to this trash in 2017, fair play to the guys, they’ve made a living off this album.

I feel if I’m reviewing a whole album it’d be rude to only mention the two big songs that shot Nickelback into the land of memes, let’s talk about the other nine songs, each of which is as bad as the two that made this album blow up. There is little to no lyrical meaning and there is certainly no praise on Chad’s vocal ability, in fact all the songs sound reminiscent of what a drunk man would do on karaoke Friday’s down the local. I could also liken it to this, you know how “Yer Da sells Avon”? Well “Yer Da likes Nickelback”.

I challenge anyone to find a worse album than this right here. Listen to Soulja Boy and you’ll find yourself close, maybe give Kevin Federline a listen and you could possibly be there, other than that you don’t really come near this monstrosity. another fucking rating circle
