To paraphrase "The Situation" from Jersey Shore, if you're a hater, Nickelback has a full-time job for you. People may grouse, they may snark, they may roll their eyes, but Chad Kroeger just shakes his frosted locks and shows you the hand while he and his band Nickelback move unit after unit.
It's that very moving of units that moved Billboard to award Nickelback with the title Band Of The Decade. Regardless of how you feel about Kroeger & Co.'s jams, you can't argue with math (well, you can, but you will lose).
All of Nickelback's 00's albums--including The State, Silver Side Up, The Long Road--did serious chart damage, especially All The Right Reasons, which spent more than 150 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100. That's like 200 dog years right there.
