Album’s Singles Review: “Dark Horse” by Nickelback

Dark Horse (album)
Nickelback had gone multi-platinum from their previous albums such as “Silver Side Up”, “The Long Road”, and “All the Right Reasons”. This time, their album “Dark Horse” went to number 2 in United States and has gone 3x platinum.

Gotta Be Somebody
“Gotta Be Somebody” was the first single from the album “Dark Horse”. I prefer the band’s version compared to the remake ones. It went to the bottom 10 in United States. But in United Kingdom, it reached number 7.
Rate: 8.25 out of 10

Something in Your Mouth
“Something in Your Mouth” was released for the promotion of the album “Dark Horse”. It is a hard rock song which charted at number 96 in United States.
Rate: 6.5 out of 10

If Today Was Your Last Day
“If Today Was Your Last Day” was the third single from “Dark Horse”. It is an alternative song which has a positive message. It peaked at number 19 in United States.
Rate: 7.75 out of 10

Burn It to the Ground
“Burn It to the Ground” became the fourth single of “Dark Horse”. It is a heavy song which failed to chart in most countries.
Rate: 5.25 out of 10

I’d Come for You
“I’d Come for You” was the fifth single off “Dark Horse”. It is a rock and emotional ballad. It reached number 44 on Billboard Hot 100.
Rate: 7.75 out of 10

Never Gonna Be Alone
“Never Gonna Be Alone” had became the sixth single for “Dark Horse”. Just like “I’d Come for You”, it is also a rock ballad track. The song charted in United States again and reached number 58.

“Shakin’ Hands” had been a promotional single too. It was a heavy rock song. It failed to chart at the Hot 100, but managed to reach the component rock charts.
Rate: 5.75 out of 10

“This Afternoon” was being the last single off “Dark Horse”. It is a pop rock song which went to number 34 on Billboard Hot 100.

Nickelback- The Long Road / Dark Horse: Top 10 Singles in US and UK

Nickelback- The Long Road
United States- Nickelback released this album following “Silver Side Up”. The album “The Long Road” released three singles which charted, but see what only reached the top 10.
Someday- #7
Only one single made it to the top 10 with “Someday”. “Figured You Out” and “Feelin’ Way Too Damn Good” charted but only at number 65 and 48, respectively.

United Kingdom- Nickelback continue to break into the UK charts. Two singles charted from the album “The Long Road” and check it below:
Someday- #6
“Someday” was the most successful single from the album too in UK. The single “Feelin’ Way Too Damn Good” only peaked at number 39.

Since “Someday” was the most successful single in both US and UK, it is the only single that is worth sharing. I also love the song and the drama on the music video. However, I feel like it sounds like “How You Remind Me”, but it is still a good song.

Nickelback- Dark Horse
United States- Nickelback’s album “Dark Horse” did well too. Six singles reached the Hot 100 but what single made it to the top 10? Look below:
Gotta Be Somebody- #10
Despite the total of six charted singles, Nickelback only scored one top 10 single. The second biggest single from the album has been “If Today Was Your Last Day” reaching number 19.

United Kingdom- Nickelback failed to score a top 10 hit from “Dark Horse”. But they hit the top 20 with “Gotta Be Somebody”. The song “If Today Was Your Last Day” reached number 64, followed by “I’d Come for You” reaching 67.

“Gotta Be Somebody” reached number 10 in US,  and number 20 in UK. In Asia, it is the solely popular single especially here in the Philippines. No other singles peaked as high as those in both countries, so I would be sharing that song. It is a great song and you will surely like it.
