Inducted in 2023

Named the “most successful rock band of the decade” by Billboard in 2009, Nickelback is one of the most commercially viable and important acts of the past two decades.

The diamond-certified four-piece, comprised of Chad Kroeger, Mike Kroeger, Ryan Peake and Daniel Adair is globally celebrated for their countless award-winning hits. With over 10 billion streams, 50 million albums sold worldwide, and 12 consecutive sold-out tours it is no question that Nickelback is one of the most prolific rock acts of all time.

Nickelback’s history dates back to 1995 in Hanna, Alberta, where they got their start playing covers in a band called Village Idiot, a nod to the small-town nature where they played and grew up. In 1996, Chad, alongside Ryan Peake, made the 10-hour trek west to follow Kroeger’s brother and bandmate, Mike, to Vancouver, British Columbia, where the band still resides and continues to make music today.
