Random Nickelback Facts #2-5
Posted on February 12, 2008Random Fact - Sex & Rock-n-Roll, perfect together. It's true. Well, Playboy has a Sex & Rock-n-Roll lifestyle website. It's true. AND, about a month back, Nickelback was interviewed for the site. You can watch all 11 ½ minutes of the goods online at www.SexnRocknRoll.com. A young lady by the name of Jessica, Miss October 1996, hosts the interview. It is pool side, and she looks great. In response to the last question during the interview when Jessica asks where the band sees themselves in five years, Chad aptly replies, "(we) always have been and always will be a rock band." Respect The Rock
Random Fact - we previously told that "How You Remind Me" spent 13 consecutive weeks at #1 on the US Mainstream Rock chart. Did You Know? Those 13 weeks at #1 tied The Rolling Stone's record of 13 weeks at #1 with the track "Start Me Up". It's true.
Nickelback's song "How You Remind Me" has reached new heights once again. In the Billboard Hot 100 last week the track went over the 120 Million mark in audience, becoming the first Rock track in the history of the Billboard Hot 100 to surpass the 120 million listener barrier. Take a second to comprehend what you just read...the previous rock track to hold the record was from Santana with the song "Smooth", which peaked at 116 million in December of 1999. Also, receiving 8774 spins last week has officially broken the all time one week spin total which was previously set by...are you ready for this...the divas doing "Moulin Rouge" (Christina Aguilera, Pink, Lil Kim and Mya) last year. Tides they are a turning...respect the rock...
Random Fact - God Help Us All...we rec'd an email last night from Sidney...you might remember her from previous Random Facts. Well, she hipped us to something new - Nickelback's first EP, Hesher, was just sold for over $490 on eBay. We shit you not. God Help Us All indeed... Sidney, thanks for the line.
