Do Canadian Bands Rock or Suck?

NickelbackNickleback, a rock band based out of Canada, has begun the songwriting process for a new album which has yet to have a release date announced, however it is hoped to be sometime before the end of 2011. Their last album was entitled the “Dark Horse” and was released in 2008 followed by a national tour. So far the band has debuted six albums since 1996.

The band, which began in 1995 has had a series of successful songs in a variety of music genres. While they started out as a primarily alternative rock band, throughout the almost 20 years they do a barrel roll and since then have been together they have sampled many other genres including pop and country.

The group has sold over thirty million records across the globe and even made the top ten in the “Artists of the Decade” article written in Billboard Magazine. The band was even chosen to perform their hit “Burn it To the Ground” at the 2010 Winter Olympics ceremony.

    Nickelback is a awesome band who has show their staying power and star quality over the years so no, Canadian bands don’t suck. Chad Kroeger is not only a great front man, but a great musician and songwriter and has collaborated all over the show with the likes of Carlos Santana, Chris Daughtry, Tim McGraw,Travis Tritt and Avril Lavigne. Now thats musical diversity coming from good musical DNA.
