Every Nickelback Album Ranked From Worst To Best

All nine albums from rock's most divisive band.

Nickelback albums

In the world of modern rock music, you'll be hard pressed to find a name bigger than Nickelback. With an arsenal of platinum-selling albums, world tours and fans across the globe, the once small time Canadian post-grunge band have defied all the odds to become global superstars.

With this incredible fame and fanbase has come a large counter movement, proving that the more popular you are, the more hated you can be alongside. Nickelback have a long-standing reputation as one of the most hated bands in rock music, even though they have sold ten of millions of records (clearly not everyone hates them, someone must be buying them).

Even though this large anti-Nickelback movement gains a lot of press, it doesn't prevent the band from soldiering on with their careers as they continue to write, record and tour with no signs of stopping.

In their 25 year careers, Nickelback have released a total of nine full-length studio albums, ranging from international super sellers to critical cannon fodder. In this article, we will count down every album in Nickelback's discography, ranking from worst to best.

9. No Fixed Address

Signalling a change in direction for the band, this was Nicelback’s eighth album and their most pop orientated effort to date. Although it sold well, the album received a less than favourable response from critics, with music journalists calling it a step in the wrong direction.

Thumping, stomp tinged radio rock tunes such as ‘Edge of Revolution’ brought some energy to the record, while less memorable inclusions like ‘Get ‘Em Up’, ‘Satellite’ and ‘Miss You’ sadly dragged the record down.

However, the reputation of Nickelback being slightly cheesy is epitomized by this album with its soppy love songs and basic, borderline generic mainstream rock style. Out of the eleven songs featured on this record, no more than four are objectively good.

All-in-all, this is the least memorable, desirable and enjoyable album in Nickelback’s discography.
