Nickelback

Tato kapela pochází z kanadského Vancouveru a vznikla v roce 1996. Nejprve v kapele zpívali sourozenci Mike Kroeger (baskytara) a Chad Kroeger (baskytara a zpěv), jejich bratranec Brandon (bicí) a Ryan Peake (baskytara, zpěv). Mike dlouho nevěděl, jak kapelu pojmenovat, ale pak našel inspiraci v kavárně, ve které tou dobou pracoval. Každý den prodával pití a když zákazníkům vracel peníze, pokaždé připojil: "Here's your nickel back."(Tady máš niklák nazpátek.) Mno a tak vzniknul název kapely.
V roce 1997 vydali první album Curb. Poté co ze skupiny odešel bubeník Brandon, nahradil ho Ryan Vikedal. Pod vedením své nezávislé firmy vydali v roce 1999 své druhé album The State, které už slavilo úspěch. Pecky Breathe (v ní zpívá Chad o imaginární schůzce Stalina a Churchilla), Old enough a Leader of men se dlouho držely na prvních příčkách celosvětových hitparád. V roce 2001 vyšlo jejch třetí album Silver side up, které skupině přineslo asi největší úspěch zásluhou hlavní písně, smutné balady How you remind me, kterou Chad napsal po rozchodu se svou přítelkyní. Tomu také odpovídá smutná atmosféra této písně, která vstoupila posluchačům do mysli velice nevnuceně a snadno, a proto zná dnes Nickelback celý svět. Nyní vydali Nickelback nový song Too bad, který je také založen na osobním prožitku. Chad ho napsal na motiv činu jeho a Mikeova otce, který v dětství opustil rodinu - takže není o nic veselejší, ale přesto zůstává na prvních příčkách hitparád. Nickelback získali za svoji hudbu mnoho ocenění: na Candian Award Show získali první místo za nejlepší skupinu, nejlepší rockové album a nejlepší song. V USA získali za album Silver side up čtyři platinové desky, v Kanadě pět platinových desek, další dvě v Austrálii, ale i Anglii a Švýcarsku. Chad také navíc nedávno nazpíval společně s Josey Scottem titulní píseň k filmu Spider-man s názvem Herop, takže za těch šest let své existence toho Nickelback dokázali opravdu hodně.








Nickelback- How you remind me
Never made it as a wise man
I couldn´t cut it as a poor man stealin´
Tiired of livin´ like a blind man
I´m sick inside without a sense of feelin
And this is how you remind me
This is how you remind me
Of what I really am
This is how you remind me
Of what I really am
It´s not like you to say sorry
I was waiting on a different story
This time I´m mistaken
For handing you a heart worth breakin´
I´ve been wrong, I´ve been down
To the bottom of every bottle
Despite words in my head
Scream "Are we having fun yet?"
Yet?, Yet?, Yet?, no no
It´s not like you didn´t know that
I said I love you and I swear I still do
It must have been so bad
Cause living with me must have damn near killed you

This is how you remind me
Of what I really am
This is how you remind me
Of what I really am
It´s not like you to say sorry
I was waiting on a different story
This time I´m mistaken
For handing you a heart worth breakin´
I´ve been wrong, I´ve been down
To the bottom of every bottle
Despite words in my head
Scream "Are we having fun yet?"
Yet?, Yet?, Yet?, no no

Never made is as a wise man
I couldn´t cut it as a poor man stealing
And this is how you remind me
This is how you remind me

This is how you remind me
Of what I really am
This is how you remind me
Of what I really am
It´s not like you to say sorry
I was waiting on a different story
This time I´m mistaken
For handing you a heart worth breakin´
I´ve been wrong, I´ve been down
To the bottom of every bottle
Despite words in my head
Scream "Are we having fun yet?"
Yet?, Yet?, Yet?, no no

Nickelback-Photograph
Look at this photograph
Everytime I do it makes me laugh
How did our eyes get so red
And what the hell is on Joey´s head
And this is where I grew up
I think the present owner fixed it up
I never knew we´d ever went without
The second floor is hard for sneaking out

And this is where I went to school
Most of the time had better things to do
Criminal record says I broke in twice
I must have done it half a dozen times

I wonder if It´s too late
Should i go back and try to graduate
Life´s better now then it was back then
If I was them I wouldn´t let me in

Oh oh oh
Oh god I

Every memory of looking out the back door
I had the photo album spread out on my bedroom floor
It´s hard to say it, time to say it
Goodbye, goodbye

Every memory of walking out the front door
I found the photo of the friend that I was looking for
It´s hard to say it, time to say it
Goodbye, goodbye

Remember the old arcade
Blew every dollar that we ever made
The cops hated us hangin´ out
They say somebody went and burned it down

We used to listen to the radio
And sing along with every song we know
We said someday we´d find out how it feels
To sing to more than just the steering wheel

Kim´s the first girl I kissed
I was so nervous that I nearly missed
She´s had a couple of kids since then
I haven´t seen her since god knows when

Oh oh oh
Oh god I

Every memory of looking out the back door
I had the photo album spread out on my bedroom floor
It´s hard to say it, time to say it
Goodbye, goodbye

Every memory of walking out the front door
I found the photo of the friend that I was looking for
It´s hard to say it, time to say it
Goodbye, goodbye

I miss that town
I miss the faces
You can´t erase
You can´t replace it
I miss it now
I can´t believe it

So hard to stay
Too hard to leave it

If I could I relive those days
I know the one thing that would never change

Every memory of looking out the back door
I had the photo album spread out on my bedroom floor
It´s hard to say it, time to say it
Goodbye, goodbye

Every memory of walking out the front door
I found the photo of the friend that I was looking for
It´s hard to say it, time to say it
Goodbye, goodbye

Look at this photograph
Everytime I do it makes me laugh
Everytime I do it makes me
