The band’s sales of over 50 million albums sold worldwide, as well as their multiple hits, locks them in as the second best-selling ‘foreign act of the 2000’s in the U.S.,’ only behind the Beatles. The band’s hit song “How You Remind Me” was named ‘Top Rock Song of the Decade’ by Billboard; which, not long after, led to Nickelback obtaining the title of ‘Top Rock Group of the Decade.’
Other than the groups JUNO Award wins, the band has also been up for nine Grammy Award nominations, seven MuchMusic Video Awards, three American Music Awards, One World Music Award and A People’s Choice Award.
In 1978, CARAS established The Canadian Music Hall of Fame to give recognition to artists that have made an everlasting contribution to not only Canadian music, but to the whole world of music, nationally and globally.
