History The band was formed in the early 1990s as a cover band called "Village Idiot"[12] by Chad Kroeger, Ryan Peake, Mike Kroeger, and Brandon Kroeger. The band later changed its name to Nickelback, which originated from the nickel in change that band member Mike Kroeger gave customers at his job at Starbucks; he would frequently say, "Here's your nickel back."[13][14] The band performed covers of songs from Led Zeppelin
Led Zeppelin
and Metallica. Chad Kroeger

then asked his step-father to give him $4,000 so that the band could record their first demo, a seven-track EP of original material, called Hesher (1996).[15][14] The band spent half the money to record the EP, and spent the other half on magic mushrooms.[12] Curb and The State (1996–2000) In 1996, the band recorded and released their first full-length album, Curb. "Fly" was included on both Hesher and Curb and was the first single produced by Nickelback. In 1997, Brandon Kroeger left the band and the band searched for a new drummer.[citation needed] Later that year Mitch Guindon joined the band, but he decided to leave in 1998 because he started working in a car company.[citation needed] In Summer 1998, Ryan Vikedal joined the band. Roadrunner A&R Ron Burman told HitQuarters
HitQuarters
that one of his West Coast scouts sent him the self-released album and, suitably impressed, he travelled to Vancouver
Vancouver
to see them perform live. Although an unknown property in the industry at the time, the venue was packed out. In Burman's words: "I immediately got the chills! I thought their song 'Leader of Men' was a smash hit."[16] Off the stage he was impressed by their industry and initiative in managing their career. Despite this, it still took Burman three months for him to convince his label bosses to approve the signing, a decision that would mark Roadrunner's first move into mainstream rock.[16] Nickelback

Chad Kroeger
started "studying every piece, everything sonically, everything lyrically, everything musically, chord structure. I would dissect every single song that I would hear on the radio or every song that had ever done well on a chart and I would say, 'Why did this do well?'" Kroeger said that Nickelback's single "How You Remind Me" sold so well because it was about romantic relationships, a universal subject, and contained memorable hooks.[19]

would perform at halftime in Detroit was met with heavy opposition by fans—who believed that a Canadian band should not be playing a halftime show for an American football game relating to an American holiday, and that Detroit's musical heritage would be damaged by an association with the band.

be removed from the festivities at the game received over 55,000 signatures from fans.[61] Nickelback

responded to this on a video on Funny or Die
