Did You Know - Nickelback
Posted on February 12, 2008Did You Know? Nickelback's single "Never Again" has hit the #1 position on the mainstream rock radio charts in the USA. This makes Chad Kroeger the first artist to top the charts three times in a calendar year ("Too Bad" and "Hero" being the other two tracks)...well, the first artist since 1992, when both the Black Crowes and U2 also did such. True.
An last, but certainly not least, last night the 15th annual High Times Doobie Awards were held in NewYork City at B.B. King's Blues Club. Nickelback, though not on hand at the event (touring duty), won BEST ROCK ALBUM by an Established Band, beating out System Of A Down, Queens Of The Stone Age, Oasis, New Found Glory, and Incubus. The trophy, a glass bong with plaque. True. Congratulations Nickelback.
Did You Know? Silver Side Up is STILL in the top 30 in the UK album charts... and it's been sitting pretty in the charts for an entire 52 weeks. Yup, that's right, Silver Side Up was released one year ago. What else? The very next issue of Guitarist magazine has a feature with Nickelback.. check it out.
