Nickelback is a rock/post-grunge band that was founded in 1995 in western Canada.  Mike Kroeger (bass and backing vocals of the band) used to work at a Starbucks coffee shop; there, he had to give nickels back to the customers as change; that is how the band came up with their name. This band is from Hanna, Alberta but today, they are based in Vancouver, British Columbia. The road to success of this band was not free of obstacles but their second album (The State), had two Top 10 hits. Nickelback became really famous with their song “How You Remind Me” from the album Silver Side Up. “How You Remind Me” was the most-played single of 2002.
