About this deal

That could be the whole reason Steel Still Rusts is here, as a song about a young man going off to war that’s more a celebration of veterans and soldiers than anything too critical of the US government or war itself (though thankfully, it’s nowhere near as jingoistic as it could be). You mightn’t like it, and even from the position of recognising there is quality here, it’d be nice if more creative bands got even a fraction of the slice they have, but there are more worthwhile entities in the music industry to hate than this. This version of Get Rollin’ is an 8-panel digipak CD with foil stamping on the front cover that features four bonus acoustic versions of songs on the album.

San Quentin is the obvious standout, as the raucous, driving rocker pivoting closer to metal that’s become an invaluable asset for them in later years, but as far as middle-of-the-road rock goes, Steel Still Rusts and Standing In The Dark take their place among the band’s established canon with fair ease.Nickelback is the 11 th best selling musical act of all time with over 50,000,000 units sold and the 2 nd best selling “foreign” group in the U. As for the latter, Nickelback clearly know how popular they are and how to win over that existing audience. On May 12, 2023, Nickelback announced an expanded deluxe edition of the album will be released on June 3, 2023, with an alternate blue cover. Tidal Wave's summery haze is deliciously strung out, one of those hypnotic songs that gets better with each play, and its dreamlike lilt contrasts with Steel Still Rusts' serious-as-cancer cautionary tale. And after all, the album still averages out in usual Nickelback fashion, in which there’s no edge or transgression, or ambition outside of the broadest plays for the down-the-middle rock crowd.

They’re not the best either—not by a long shot—but they’ve clearly got some talent and know what they’re doing when it comes to the music they’re making. To be fair, they’re playing around with some spacier production touches on Tidal Wave and Just One More, or slight country-rock flavour on Steel Still Rusts; neither add any nutrition to the existing meat-and-potatoes radio-rock, but they work for what they’re going for. Look, if you’re actively looking for Nickelback reviews to validate some latent desire to see them torn to shreds and continue the longstanding narrative around them, maybe it’s worth re-examining why that’s something you want.

Because, for as much as they’re retaking every step they’ve ever made on this album, they can still be okay at it. Because we feel that you can make a good record and be late, but you can’t, or you shouldn’t, make a shitty record to be on time. The branding they’ve picked up has made it an unavoidable thorn to be pulled at, though somewhat futilely given that any critical reevaluation of Nickelback is effectively pointless. Nickelback is the 11 th best selling musical act of all time with over 50,000,000 units sold and the 2 nd best selling “foreign” group in the U. The highs aren’t very high, but they’re serviceable enough; even when the formula is being as rinsed as it is, there’s a certain bar of quality that Nickelback can hit in their sleep.

On August 31, 2022, video of the band's video-shoot for the lead single " San Quentin" was posted online by fans who attended video-shoot via their social media posts. In truth, it’s probably the ballads that fare the worst, between nostalgia-pandering to the nth degree on Those Days, and a slushy love song in Does Heaven Even Know You’re Missing? We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. That can still be applied to an album like this, which isn’t even among their best, but shows a band dialling into what’s made them popular and successful for years, running with it, and producing the results that’ll ensure that keeps going for plenty of time yet to come.

During an interview with WRAT radio station, lead vocalist Chad Kroeger spoke about the lyrical inspiration for "San Quentin", saying: "I met the San Quentin prison warden at a party.
