Nickelback Gets Its Start

  

Brothers, Chad and Mike Kroeger formed Nickelback in Vancouver1 in 1996 with their cousin Brandon (who is no longer in the band) and their buddy12 Ryan Peake. Chad Kroeger wrote lyrics2 while the rest of the guys worked together on the music. They came up with3 the name Nickelback from Mike Kroeger's cashier experience at Starbucks. Customers would pay 1.50 for a coffee that costs 1.45 -- and Mike Kroeger would always have to give them "a nickel back."

 

  Nickelback put together and released a seven-song demo and began supporting it with live gigs4. In 1997, Nickelback released their debut3 CD, Curb45, and pushed the album with non-stop touring. Nickelback later went through a bunch of drummers until they hooked up6 with current drummer Ryan Vikedal, who was an old buddy of Ryan Peake's.

 

    In 1999, Nickelback released their second CD, The State (released in 2000 in the US), under their own, independent label. Nickelback had a top twenty hit with the song Leader of Men. They jumped back on the road to support the CD and eventually signed with Roadrunner Records.

 

    Nickelback had a large following in Canada, but wanted to break into the US. In 2001, Nickelback released their third CD, Silver Side Up, and the first single How You Remind Me became a huge hit across North America. How You Remind Me even made it to number one on Canadian and US rock charts.

  Nickelback Says: "We just like writing good songs with good melodies that you'll sing at our shows and remember when you walk away."

五分钱乐队开始起步

  

查德和迈克克勒格尔兄弟同他们的表兄布兰登(现已离开乐队)和好朋友瑞安皮克于1996年在温哥华组成了五分钱乐队。查德负责作词,其他小伙子则一起谱曲。乐队的名字来自迈克在星巴克当收银员时的经历,顾客们总是用1.5美元买价格为1.45美元的一杯咖啡,迈克则总是要给他们五分钱找头

  五分钱乐队将7首歌拼成一盘样带,推出后即开始现场演出进行推广。1997年,乐队推出了他们名为《路边》的首张光碟,并马不停蹄地巡回演出,进行促销。之后乐队鼓手频繁换人,直到最后锁定了现在的鼓手瑞安维克多尔,他是瑞安皮克的老朋友。

1999年,乐队发行了第二张光碟——乐队独立制作的《国家》(该光碟2000年登陆美国)。乐队的歌曲《男人的领袖》打入了排行榜前20名,他们又开始巡回演出以促销这张光碟,最终与奔跑者唱片公司签了约。

五分钱乐队在加拿大拥有众多的追随者,但乐队还想进军美国乐坛。2001年,乐队推出了他们的第三张光碟《银面朝上》,其中的第一首单曲《你令我想起》成为横扫北美的热门歌曲,甚至登上了加拿大和美国摇滚乐排行榜的冠军宝座。

  五分钱乐队说:我们就喜欢创作旋律优美的好歌,你愿意在我们的演唱会上跟着唱这些歌,而且过后不会忘记它们。
