Nickelback is a Canadian band best-known for releasing many songs off each album, and being cool to hate. In spite of their alleged popularity which has garned them at least a 5 seed each of the first four years, they have only one tournament win, making them the second-worst under-performing band of the tournament after The Rolling Stones. Their seedings since 2010 (and absence in 2011) are more in-line with their tournament strength.
Some best-known songs: How You Remind Me, Never Again, Animals
