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.

Album’s Singles Review: Nickelback “Silver Side Up” and “The Long Road”

“Silver Side Up” (album)
Nickelback has been one of the most popular Canadian bands who successful fared in music charts worldwide. They had released two albums before “Silver Side Up”, but this album became their breakthough mainstream hit. It became one of the biggest selling rock albums in 2002 as it went to top 10 in many countries.

How You Remind Me
This single introduced the band to mainstream success when it reached number one in Billboard Hot 100, while top 10 in numerous countries. I love the song then when it was often played on radio especially the hours of rock songs were played.
Rate: 9.25 out of 10

Too Bad
“Too Bad” was the second release off “Silver Side Up”. Melodically, “How You Remind Me” was way better, while lyrically, this one is better which deals without pain not growing up with your father. The song did not perform that well in the US while it went top 10 in UK.
Rate: 8.25 out of 10

Never Again
“Never Again” is the third and last release from this album which failed to access the Hot 100.
Rate: 6.5 out of 10

“The Long Road” (album)
This album served as the band’s second mainstream successful album, but it failed to match their previous album as it performed and achieved half of the success of “Silver Side Up”. The tracks from the album is reminiscent of the previous record.

This song sounds like the brother of their song “How You Remind Me”. The music video is way better than “Remind” because of its story. The song was a hit and was their second highest performing song of them that time.
Rate:8.25 out of 10

Figured You Out
“Figured You Out” served as the second release off “The Long Road”. The song failed to become a hit when it only peaked at number 65 in the US.
Rate: 6.5 out of 10

Feelin’ Way Too Damn Good
This song sounds way better than the previous single for me. Eventually, it performed better when it reached the top 50 in Billboard Hot 100.
Rate: 6.75 out of 10

Because of You
“Because of You” is a metal song by the band, which was only a rock chart hit.
Rate: 5.75 out of 10
