Nickelback has had consistant solid hits with "How You Remind Me", "Someday", "Savin' Me" and "Far Away". Each album has consistantly sold more and more albums, with there latest (All the Right Reasons) still in the top 20 over a year later! If this trend continues, they'll be a shoe in.

I'm sorry, but this link http://www.thewebshite.net/nickelback.htm puts up a pretty convincing case why Nickelback whould never get in without paying for a ticket.
Posted by Kit on Sunday, 12.31.06 @ 13:18pm
Nickelback should be inducted simply beacuse their music is amazing,all their singles have reached high positions and have all stayed for a long time, their albums has sold millions across the globe, it's clear they should be inducted.

Why do people cite record sales as proof of talent?
Posted by William on Monday, 01.8.07 @ 18:42pm
Why are some people not able to pay respect to artist, who proved they they are very creative AND succesful songwriters ?
Posted by Anna on Thursday, 03.15.07 @ 15:23pm
They should definitely be inducted. All of their albums have had truly spectacular songs that connected and influenced a lot of people. Many other bands that came after them got their main style from Nickelback. They are more and more successful with each album and they should get into the rock n roll hall of fame.
Posted by Joe on Thursday, 03.15.07 @ 17:04pm
The only thing Nickelback has influenced is my gag reflex and their only innovation is coming up with new ways to make my ears bleed. Creative? Come on. "Savin' Me" and "How You Remind Me" are the same song. The SAME SONG. The power chord progressions are exactly the same.
Posted by James on Thursday, 03.15.07 @ 18:45pm
Nickelback has proven their efforts repeatedly with constant scrutiny from nay sayers...why can't those who don't like them, keep opinions to themselves? No need to bash them. There are many of us who appreciate their hard work, their talent, their determination and their committment to keep going!
Posted by MK on Friday, 03.16.07 @ 07:07am
If you want to criticise Nickelback at least listen to an entire CD and not just what is played on the radio, then you would see that it's not the same song over and over. These guy's push the envelope every CD and there for each CD gets better and better. These guy's have staying power and lots and lots of fans. And besides the great music and obviouse talent their just really nice guy's!

I'm really tired of critics bashing Nickelback, their just jealouse. These are the nicest and kindest and most genuine people you'll every come across. They truely give Rock & Roll a Good name. Their music makes you feel good and what is wrong with that in this day and age? I know people from 12 to 55 who truely enjoy Nickelbacks music, and even better Live!

You can't say this is a band of shit and that's a good band. All you can say is "I don't like them" or "I do like them" - either way, millions of people will disagree with you.
Posted by Sabine on Monday, 03.19.07 @ 05:36am
Nickelback is a pathetic band, just like all of the fans. I think it is so funny how people think they are hard rock, they just put out a bunch of terrible sappy ballads. Get over yourselves you idiots, there is better music that doesn't have to deal with insignificant c*cksuckers.
Posted by Griffin on Monday, 03.19.07 @ 06:09am
people say we should listen to the whole cd and not just the radio? funny, all their songs are played on the radio - 7 singles from the latest album. god what garbage, the band stands for radioplay and everything bad about music. at least i can say i never wasted my time on this horse sh*t.
Posted by griffin on Monday, 03.19.07 @ 06:12am
I have experienced many years of music. From the 70's to the present and the one thing that is a constant is change. Everyone has a favorite type of music and right now, mine is Nickelback! For whatever reasons (and mine are personal) I connect with this band on many levels. For all the "critics" - well, evidently you don't! Whatever happened to "to each his own"? I'm sure if those who dislike this band were to include their favorite bands right now, it would be "open season" on you and yours! There is a TON of music out there that I don't care for, but I don't jump up and bash it. Yes, it's a free country, but why waste time with such negativity. Support the music and bands you prefer and leave mine alone!!! History speaks for itself in the music industry, and these boys are on their way - whether you critics like it or not! Congratulations to Nickelback on what you have already achieved and thanks for making ME happy!
Posted by Patricia on Monday, 03.19.07 @ 11:17am
Every artist who has so much successe deserve it to be in the hall of fame
and this is a good example why I am listening to nickelback
Yeah and notice how people who bash Nickelback, like, lets say, that metalhead person. They decide to cuss out the band AND the fans! How low do you get? If I don't like a band I simply state it. I might say I think its terrible, but there is no need to cuss out the band and the fans. YOU need to get over YOURSELF before you make comments about THIS band! It seems the Nickelback haters are more immature than the people who like the band because every time I see someone bashing them it usually involves cussing out the fans. Congratulations on making yourselves look stupid. Thanks, your just making the fans sound smarter. ;)

Whoa whoa whoa 77% yes? No, I'm not a hater and all...and I am aware they have harder hitting songs thanks to last.fm and stuff, but still...I don't think they have done anything innovating yet. They've been critically panned by a lot of places...as far as I know, the only big awards they've won have been through fan voting and stuff.
Posted by maplejet on Thursday, 04.5.07 @ 13:55pm
Nickelback so deserves to be in the hall of fame. They are one of the most famous rock bands in the world and are the best!!!! I wish they could be inducted in the next few years.
Posted by Ash on Wednesday, 04.11.07 @ 17:50pm
Now, I think it is way too early to say these guys should get in, but eventually I think they will do enough to get in. they remind me, as far as what they are doing, of my favorite band of all time....Collective Soul. They have all the singles they need to get in, but just might not be influential enough. I hope they both get in though!

Popularity does not equal quality. Nickelback are an insult to rock music today and yet they're one of the main acts featured. They're basically Creed rip offs, which is pretty sad considering that Creed is a rip off of Pearl Jam and Alice In Chains. Personally I'll stick to the bands that actually innovated and have influence.

Posted by Dave on Thursday, 06.7.07 @ 15:24pm
You don't have to like Nickelback to realize they continually demonstrate innovation and influence. It's their creativity that takes very basic human topics and makes them into songs that attract a wide range of listeners, as evidenced at every sold out show. They've been creative in finding ways to use their influence for global causes (i.e. IEC). It's their quality that has attracted the popularity. They're proving with every year that they have longevity.
Posted by Athena on Friday, 06.8.07 @ 14:26pm
Innovation is nonexistant. Not only do they, like nearly every post-grunge band, rip off Pearl Jam to the point of parody, but as evidenced above, they even rip ofd THEIR OWN MATERIAL and try to pass it off as an entirely new song. They are so dull as to make ditchwater look exciting. No experimentation, no trying new things, just formula rock.
Posted by William on Friday, 06.8.07 @ 14:51pm
How can they NOT be inducted?? When each CD that comes out, does better than the one before...

Proof positive that the casual music fan does not actually care about music enough to educate herself and become informed.
Posted by William on Friday, 06.8.07 @ 20:33pm
If the rock hall inducted artists based on how much albums they sold, then yes, nickelback would get inducted. But luckily for people who actually care about music, people who listen to more than whats on the top 40 currently, the rock hall inducts based on musical skill, something Nickelback doesn't have. And how can you argue that they have been influential? No bands list them as influences, maybe in future years some will, but none yet. All their songs are recycled, safe trash with no innovation whatsoever in any way. I used to kinda like nickelback, and I can see how some people might like their music, but if you listen to any of their songs more than a couple times, you realize how badly they suck. And on a slightly unrelated note, someone said the songs on http://www.thewebshite.net/nickelback.htm were "How you remind me" and "savin' me", just wanted to let you know it was "Someday", not "Savin' Me".
Posted by Matt on Saturday, 06.9.07 @ 18:34pm
the only induction they deserve is electrostatic induction by way of lightning bolts. I don't care how how successful or well-played they are, I hate their music more than anything else on the radio.

In reference to the Canadian comment, I could be wrong, but I think the poster was just saying that the Hall of Fame seems to have a bias against Canadian acts and not expressing his own personal bias against Canadian acts.

okay....this is retarted...that stupid website that compares both songs altered everything. He sped up Someday like crazy and took out various parts to how you remind me so they would match and if anyone plays guitar they would know its not the same song. im not saying its anything special on guitar but THEY'RE CLEARLY NOT THE SAME SONG, so dont use that website as proof. look at Nirvana, AC/DC, Creed etc...all great bands but they seriously sound all the same just as much as Nickelback does so everyone shut the fuck up and if u dont have anything good to say dont say it

Chad's driving around in a fancy car because he sings: "We'll all stay skinny 'cuz we just won't eat." Perhaps visionary would be a better description of his insight to the human condition.

These guys put on one of the greatest live performances I have ever seen in my life, and I've seen the likes of Aerosmith, AC/DC, Pantera, and Dream Theatre live and in person. Some of these negative posts that I've read on here are down right shameful, ignorant, and border stupidity on several different occasions. Educate youself and actually watch someone in concert before you say stupid shit and make yourself look bad.

I think Nickleback is a damned good band & I expect they'll get to the Hall someday.
Posted by Paul in KY on Monday, 03.2.09 @ 05:22am
Jeremy - I have no doubt about what you say about their live performance. I am of the opinion that a great live band is as important as anything else when it comes to music. I am still reluctant to give them a yes vote. I am still not all that impressed with them. The music has not shown much growth, at least to my ears.
Posted by Dameon on Monday, 03.2.09 @ 11:55am
Thanks Dameon, You gave an honest opinion without reducing yourself to Elementary School logic and name calling, so much respect to you. I hope that perhaps in the future, this band will grow on you, and maybe others on this Message Board will follow your example of respectful disagreement. Take care!

I've been reading these comments and first off i like nickelback. Nickelback doesn't deserve to be in the hall of fame. The rock and roll hall of fame is the best of the best, and i cant put nickelback in there. People say they are a great live band. Honestly those people probably have been to ten concerts in their life. I have people who go to around five to six a year tell me they are one of the worst. I never personly seen them because i've been told its a waist of money. They haven't done anything really creative. They follow whats safe, and things that have been done before. There are still things out there that haven't been tried yet, and there will always be. Lastly I want you to ask yourself have you ever heard someone say nickelback influenced me to get into music. I never have. Once again I like them they just are not the best of the best

Although Nickleback is considered Rock. the band won 5 out of 11 nominations from 2003 - 2008. This is not counting Canada.. where they were nominated 14 times and won 12. and at the people choice awards they won favorite group in 2007. and being on the Top 40 everywhere. But where is the creativity, influence, and impact? or even the growth?

also, when they were managing themselves in their very early days, they were able to sell like 100,000 records. Not only are they talented and a great live act, but they also play their music for the right reasons
Posted by Jen on Saturday, 07.11.09 @ 17:43pm
Why would anyone mention madonna- an entertainment/musical/cultural icon in the same breath as the safe, generic, made-for-mass-consumption music of Nickelback? I mean, if a Nickelback song is on theradio, I can tolerate it- but these guys have done nothing to advance anything and make basic music- Daughtry has followed its lead, and, think about it- other safe, commercially successful rock bands haven't been considered, ain't no way Nickelback will when the band is eligible.
Posted by JR on Sunday, 09.20.09 @ 20:54pm
I agree w/JR- no innovation, they won't influence anybody. They are very popular, pretty good, and as tolerable as any new rock out right now, but it won't happen as it stands.

Posted by John on Sunday, 01.24.10 @ 07:50am
I will protest outside the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame if they are to be inducted. Although they have a fairly large fan-base, they are also probably one of the most hated bands in the world. I feel like they're not even trying in their songs, and if they are, bless their little, talentless hearts.

Posted by Ralph on Tuesday, 02.22.11 @ 12:37pm
Well Ralph its all opinion really...while I agree with you that Nickelback does indeed blow, but to call Radiohead boring is just laughable. The only bands you listed that I haven't seen are Thorogood and J. Geils Band, but I really have no interest in those anyway. Pearl Jam I thought was terrible and over rated after I saw them....mainly cuz Eddie Vedder blows live. I can say the same about Iron Maiden as they just seemed unorganized and incapable of putting on a good show anymore. Metallica I flat out just DO NOT like so I had no hopes when I saw them. Social Distortion and Dropkick I feel are not even on the same level as Radiohead or Phish so I won't even compare. Prince and Springsteen tho top notch stuff, not as good as Phish and Radiohead but not bad. But in my humble opinion Radiohead is easily the best band of the last 20 years and Phish is right behind them, I do appreciate someone with actual taste in music on here tho, so kudos to you Ralph for not liking complete garbage.
Posted by Joel on Friday, 03.25.11 @ 14:01pm
I love how the Nickelback haters come to the Hall of fame site to BASH on them. Get a life, Nickelback has had plenty of influence on their listeners, Chad Kroeger himself has had several "side-gigs", FYI before you Bash them listen to more than a few songs, for those of you saying they need to create their own style of music and whatnot i have news for you....ALL BANDS ARE RIPOFFS OF OTHER BANDS nobody "makes their own style" they listen to something they like and make it their own. its rock and roll people.

Nickelback is a considerably better choice than Black Eyed Peas, I'll give them that. It's not that they're a god-awful and talentless band, they just took their insanely successful, pretty good debut hit "How You Remind Me" and repeated that formula - over and over and over again. It's not that their songs aren't distinguishable from one another, they're just all a slightly tweaked flavor departure from that original megahit. So they are aren't Hall of Fame worthy, but at the same time I'm not really offended that they're playing the Super Bowl. If anything it kind of suits the entire atmosphere; they've got enough tolerable hits (as long as they don't play "Rockstar") to carry on a half-time show, just not enough innovation, influence, or respect (critically or by popularity) to be enshrined as an artist.
Posted by Paul Kagebein on Saturday, 11.5.11 @ 15:12pm

The only things that Nickelback knows how to do are to make me laugh at how outrageously bad their songs are and change the song to a better rock band, or rap artist (which I'm a hip-hopper). Their music is so mundane, they write really crappy lyrics that are all about drinking, sex, I broke up with that girl, prostitutes, my parent caught me doing this with that girl, blah blah blah. Their music is trash and they're one of the worst rock bands ever. Chad Kroeger needs like 30 cough drops for his god-awful raspy voice which isn't good. I've hated them since I first heard How You Remind Me in 3rd grade. Put Public Enemy or N.W.A. or Boogie Down Productions or LL Cool J in there, not Nickel-wack.

Here's the problem with Nickelback:
Posted by Jim on Thursday, 12.22.11 @ 17:49pm
And overall, it could be argued that their influence really was a big reason mainstream rock got its ass kicked in the 2000s: many of the bands they influenced really had no talent and wrote songs that sounded just like Nickelback, causing people to get sick of mainstream rock as a whole and look different places (Rap and R&B namely), which could explain the lack of rock songs on the Top 40 lately.

I know a lot of people who absolutely HATE Nickelback (i.e. anyone on a comedy website) and a lot of people who absolutely LOVE Nickelback (i.e. half the people on this comment page). I like Nickelback. They have some good songs. They are not the best band, but they have potential. They have influenced most modern rock bands, and have good record sales. I think yes, despite how many people want to murder them.

Beautiful bit on Creed/Nickelback - that article posted.

I doubt the committee will even think of Nickelback. I don't even know why do we have to have a page for them as they are not even a potential candidate. No chance they will be inducted, maybe into the Rock and Roll Hall of Shame along with Creed. They are good at what they do, making similar generic commercialized songs with pretty much the same chords progression that get a lot of airtime on radio. But that never was a criteria to be considered. If visibility on media is a criteria than Diana Sawyer, Brad Pitt, Obama etc. would also have to be inducted. Just because you are popular and everyone know you doesn't mean you get in. The Hall of Fame is about contribution to Music, specifically Music in Rock Era.

Chances are they will not be inducted or will all be very, very old. However, they do have one great album (Silver Side Up) another couple good ones & have probably had much more fun these last 10 or so years than you or I, Lee.

There is no need for them! They suck!

A lot of people would hate to see the RNR HOF induct them, but it is happening. Nickelback is more deserving of Blink 182 anyway since Blink 1&2 influenced the worst bands of all time!

And Nickelback haven't?
