There seem to be two types of fans — either they love or hate Nickelback. But no matter what you may think of the group, they will be honored with an induction into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame. 

Personally, I don’t understand the amount of hate sometimes. I get it when a band is popular in music it seems to get saturated on the airwaves. For Nickelback, I had people, in the beginning, yelling at me about why am I not playing more of the band. Then years later and after 50 million albums sold, they have more than 4.7 billion streams. They became rock and roll punching bags but very rich ones. Their 10th album — “Get Rollin’” — is out now. This isn’t the first time Nickelback has been to the Juno Awards, Canada’s answer to a Grammy. They have won the award 12 times.

They’ve been so successful that by the end of the 2000s, Billboard named Nickelback the top band of the decade, coming in seventh overall on the list of top music stars. I remember the first show was back in 2000 at St. Andrews Hall in Detroit. A friend told me these guys are the band to watch. He was right- the show was incredible. Strip down lights and glitz, the show focused on them as a band. In total, I admit proudly to have seen the band three times. Once at DTE and the other at Joe Louis Arena. Not trying to change your mind at all. Proud for any band to go through what they have gone though and get acknowledged for a great achievement award. As for Nickelback in the Rock Hall in Cleveland? If Lionel Richie, N.W.A., and ABBA can be in the Hall why not Nickelback? Congratulations to Chad Kroger and the band.
