Best Nickelback Songs

The Top Ten

1 How You Remind Me

Amazing Song

Hero Shoud Be #2 Or #3

This song is awesome.. It tells that how we miss someone... And how the memories tells the story behind that someone... I love this song so much... How I wish I could play this in guitar...! :))

Slow and fast heart touching but still rock... Awesome!

Why do people say Nickelback is the worst band? Seriously. Their songs are at least better than some modern artists who claim they have all the talent, and this song proves it. - Mattblue66

Nickelback are a great band, it's only emo Internet keyboard warriors that hate them because they are a successful rock band that doesn't whine or do screamo - musicfanguy

It brings out the true rockstar in us! It is a must watch song! You have to watch it cause its different in an awesome way!

This is the BEST SONG EVER! They will never make a song better than this one!

Rockstar is the best song ever. It's my first favourite and its really catchy and easy to get stuck in your head. - ChelseaPurnell

It's a nice song
Have some real rock touch in it!
I like nickleback band after listening this song.
Thanks

Okay I may not be the biggest fan of Nickelback but I absolutely love this song. It's so powerful and energising. Probably my favourite Nickelback song ever in my opinion - UltraLunalaX

4 Savin' Me

Incredible, awesome, beautiful. Not much more to add. Listen to this every night.

This song introduced me to Nickelback, love this song! Has some real power and meaning, last chorus especially. Love Nickelback!

Brilliant video!
Absolutely amazing. The song is good too, but the video is a must watch!
Not Nickelback's best, musically speaking. But easily one of the best videos I've seen!

A bionicles video introduce me to this (=)

5 Far Away

This song made me cry! It's so touching! It moves me so much. Especially if I watch the video together with the song. It is just plain awesome! I love it!

Probably the only nickelback Soft song!
But still!
THE BEST EVER!
I mean.. Nothing can be better than this!...
Ooh ya for sure!... No doubt man..

Beautiful lyrics... Got some music... A truly worthwhile wastage of 03:58... Out of nowhere makes you feel... The essence.. Makes you hear the same thing again and again... Just to gain some soulful "relishment"... Really turned me on for quite some time... Didn't expect this from the generally repetitive nickelback... Great job...

No what is wrong with you people this should be 3 and Someday should be 2, educate yourselves

6 If Today Was Your Last Day

I mean seriously it's just plain awesome, but not only that it has a deeper meaning behind it. The lyrics are saying that if today is your last day what would you do? But if you noticed it's not stuff like riding in a hot air balloon or meeting someone different. It suggests things that if we did we'd feel that little more happier. See old friends you never see, reminisce old memories. Would you forgive your enemies? They're not material items but they're personal things to make you feel happy.

Nickelback sucks. My songs are not songs, my songs are real life.
- Jim Burton

What? This song isn't first? Insane. This is definitely their best song.
And "Something in your mouth" is probably their worst song, laugh out loud

This is an amazing song it should be top 5 at least, this is a classic and really makes you think about life. As well it teaches us how precious it is and to leave this world without regrets. It's a MUST listen to for thoughs who haven't already. Nickelback favourite :P

7 Someday

I'm voting till this song is number 1 it's amazing. My Favorite nickelback song out of them all. Why is it on number 10 it should be way higher. I listen to this every day. There are songs above this one that should be lower down in the list

This has been my favorite song for 6 months... I listen to it everyday! Nickelback's best song by far!

Its awesome, the song relates to me and my love in every way... one of the best songs I'hv ever heard..!

It wouldn't have been on.10 if the drummer was Daniel Adair. Anyways it should be on 1. Such nice lyrics, such a nice solo and such a nice video too. You can understand the video only if you have brains.

8 Gotta Be Somebody

This song is one of my favorites! The lyrics are perfect for me to relate to, the music sounds amazing!

Love the music and the lyrics of this song! I so can relate with this one.

This is a very nice song and the music is awesome. It should be at 4-5 position. This song has a different energy in it and the listner get enchanted. Its not a total rock song and has the element of love with chaukas beats.

This song is amazing and deserves to be at least at number 3! The build up to the main song is really so good it absorbs you for a moment and the chorus is INSANE

9 If Everyone Cared

A beautiful song that is appealing and has a wise message. The video clip is inspirational. I fell in love with this song the first time I heard it, which was the day I bought the album. I just lay on my bed with my eyes closed thinking "I'm going to HAVE to learn the words".

Just amazing. Seriously, great melody, lyrics and a good message. It's because of songs like this I like Nickelback so much. The chorus is one of those that you just wanna sing along to, you know.

I've never boring with this song. Good lyric, good vocal, good music. One of the best I've ever seen. Brilliant music.

Probably one of the most meaningful songs they have released in their albums. The song inspires everyone to show love to each other. This song portrays that fighting and hatred is meaningless. World Peace all the way. Like I said, hatred is meaningless, no matter how corrupt a person is. - Crysis

Makes Me Smile, Makes Me Cry!
What more does someone need in a Song!?

I've been through the same thing as this song, I moved from my home and I wished I could go back. This song really brought me back some good memories and some strong nostalgia. Wonderful job, Nickelback!

Photograph, brings back days that I had to get let go of over the years, and would do anything to get back. Makes me nostalgic as hell! Brilliant song. Simply AMAZING! And with an amazingly obvious touch of 'Nickelback'.

This song I can relate to! When I hear this song, it makes me remember the times of when I was in fourth grade. I absolutely love this song. It is one of my favorites by Nickelback. Everybody said Nickelback song sound the same, but to me, they all sound different and they all sound amazing!

The Contenders

11 Animals

Should be way higher on the list! One of his best songs with great lyrics! My personal favorite

9th?! This song should be high up in the top 5!
awesome lyrics and damn good music!
one of the best by nickelback!

One of my favorite Nickelback songs that is often overlooked on Nickelback top songs lists.
It should also be rated higher on this list.

One of the best nickleback songs... Lyrics are okay but not as meaningful as the others such as far away and such... Amazing music though... Very hyped up haecy rock... Drummers amazing in this song and very crazy... I love it! Definitely should've made it higher on the list

12 This Afternoon

The happiest song from Nickelback and probably one of the best, when I hear this song I feel happier than ever! It also makes you wanna go out and hangout with all of your friends for EVER!

"Hit from the bong like a diesel train"

Great up beat song

My introduction to the band and the best I've ever heard. I feel at home listening to it, like all my friends are standing around me and we're drinking, and enjoying just being with each other. My absolute favorite

13 Lullaby

Are you serious?
THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST! JUST LISTEN TO IT THAN YOU WILL KNOW ITS IN THE WRONG PLACE HERE

Just an amazing song, there is no physical words to describe what an awesome song this is. The Youtube.com music video doesn't depict what and/or whom it is directed toward. This song is actually directed toward teenagers who are trying to or thinking about committing suicide. When I heard this song, I instantly had memories of all the times I tried to commit suicide and I kept thinking to myself, "Why did I try to do all those things? So many people care about me. Obviously Nickelback cares because they wrote this song to help stop suicide and help promote suicide awareness." Since then, every time I think about that, I just listen to this song and it reminds me that I don't have a crappy life and ending my life won't ensure that the pain will end. It will only ensure that life won't get better because you ended it before it could get better.

Great melody

This song deserves to be in top 10.. Amazing lyrics and a must watch video.. Video contains all emotions and make me feel crying when I saw it first time... Simply Nickelback one of best songs

14 When We Stand Together

Very Good Song I heard it more than two hundred times.
It has be in top ten list

Nickelback's best song ever. It has a message. We could really be feeding a starving world with what we throw away but we just serve empty words that always taste the same you know it's very true. But I always feel like starving myself when I hear this song. I even bought the album just to listen to this song.

My God what a song!
Nickelback is back... And this time they are better than ever.
This song's just what a music lover needs..
The lyrics a lot meaningful too
You Rock NICKELBACK!
Keep on the music like this... WE LOVE YOU!

Amazing- my favorite part is: "we could feed a starving world with what we throw away, but all we serve are empty words that always taste the same. "

I mean, how awesome is that? Seriously, it totally made me think.

15 Side of a Bullet

This song is truly amazing and definitely my fave as it is about probably the greatest guitarist to ever grace a six-string.R.I.P. dimebag

Looking at this list, I swear it's composed by the people who are oblivious to just how awesome Nickelback's heavy songs are. This is a song with a catchy chorus; emotional, pain-filled lyrics; great bass line and guitar riff; a guitar solo sampled from a Pantera song; and drumming that Vinnie Paul himself said was good enough for him not bbeing on the track does not bring it down in any way. Also it's about the tragic death of Dimebag Darrell. RIP Dimebag

How is this not top 5

Dedicated to the late and legendary Dimebag Darrell after his murder. One of their heaviest songs. Great guitar solo near the end. My personal favorite of theirs.

16 Never Gonna Be Alone

Such a sad yet meaningful song. When you've lost someone, listen to this song and it's so helpful. Makes me cry every time - love it! Should be number 1 by far!

I was diagnosed with breast cancer shortly after this song was released. To me, it ment that I would not battle cancer on mhh own. My family, friends, and medical team were always there for me.

Makes me cry every time I hear it, it is the best song of nickelback in my opinion. Many people feels so identified with this song.
THE BEST OF NICKELBACK

Whenever I hear or listen to this song it always reminds me of my parents. Although it's a sad song, it has so much meaningful lyrics. Maybe it deserves a bit higher than no. 13. It should be in the the top. 10

17 Hero

Just a great song overall. Whenever I hear this it makes me feel invincible. This also has a great guitar solo that can't be beat.

This isn't a Nickelback song, the lead singer was just apart of it.

This is my favourite song from them! It's also on the spiderman soundtrack! This is probably one of their most underrated songs.

This By Far My Favorite Nickelback song, very Emotional, first time I heard it my eyes gushed with tears because my grandfathers death anniversary was coming up, and it makes you think about the family members that are now gone. I believe Hero should Number 1. And in 2nd. Rockstar.

18 Too Bad

I think this is the best, most meaningful, and with great rhythm and powerful main riff, and it should be on a first place. How You Remind Me can be at second place, and third place must be for Hero

The first four tracks from Silver Side Up should be in the top ten. This is one of them.

The only song they have that doesn't represent the band they are and does represent the band they could have been. A great mix of punch and musical quality along with great vocals. The hook is alright I guess but it's the first and main rhythm section that is genius.

I would put this in 10th place. - zetturno

19 Leader of Men

This song is seriously underrated. When I saw the music videos for this and Too Bad, they were the first songs I started liking more than How You Remind Me. They both deserve to be in the top 10 along with Never Again - Danielsun182

It's such a sweet song! Really shows off Chad's vocals and the harmonies and progression throughout the song are awesome

Leader of Men is a throwback to grunge days and features an awesome ramp up in the middle of the song. This is one of Nickelback's first and possibly best songs, but very few people have heard it b/c it was released in 1999.

This shows what Nickelback was capable of! - Curti2594

20 This Means War

Best song it has really good rock. In my opinion, it's there best song. Anybody who thinks nickelback is lame, they're so wrong.

Easy top 10 finish for this song! Insane guitar and just get one pumped whenever it is played! Heard it hundreds of times and know the lyrics off by heart. No band can match nickelback! They are the best!

I'm Optimus Prime. Bow before me.

That riff
Dem vocals
I've been a nickelback fan for years and when I first heard this when it came out I was absolutely blown away! - wolphert

21 I'd Come for You

Combined with the video, this song has real meaning. Too bad its not even in the top 10...

Whenever I listen this song... It's just melt my heart completely... The video is too good... Whatever our children do... We are always there to guide them and take them to the right path... NICKELBACK is just Marvelous...

This song should be the best song of Nickelback... I enjoy its every word and music... It is very touching... Please people vote for this song... - Newuser

This song is my favorite by Nickelback. It weights so much emotion and regret for a person who sings it. You understand the story behind the words, how he feels about losing that person and how he would come for her whenever she needs, even if he is the one who is destroying their relationship. I find this song to be extremely powerful and touching. - rockishlittlegirl

22 Just to Get High

Reminds me of myself when I was on drugs. Love you Chad. Everyone should listen to this song, I'm impressed it is actually on here.. :)

Lots of Love from New Zealand, Keep rocking' m/

Should be definitely in top 5... Great song... Incredible guitar solo. Doesn't sound like nickelback much. I was impressed when I first heard it

Not very known, but in my opinion it's a great song. - omarotiniano

Love the raw emotion and angry confusion in this song.

23 Never Again

Absolute favorite

I love this song! It is my favorite song by Nickelback

Are you people serious!? Listen to the intro, the guitar play is awesome. Should be in the top 10 at least along with Too Bad. Silver Side Up is the best album.

This, Woke Up This Morning and Too Bad should be WAY higher! They're some of Nickelback's best songs. Silver Side Up is the best album they did. Vote!

24 Bottoms Up

No comments for bottoms up... I reckon its even better than rockstar!

So cool and fast-paced... it's just awesome!

25 Trying Not to Love You

26 Flat on the Floor

What is doing this song here? It should be so higher

Such an energizing and fast pace. Very catchy!

Easily their most metal song. Should be a metal classic. Never gets old

This literally their only good song from a lyrical standpoint. - Pagepage21

27 Everything I Wanna Do

Best nickelback song ever
Good lyrics and makes me listen to it everyday because this song simply makes you go crazy, (In a rock way) Every thing I wanna do if it was on T.V. or ever in a magazine she could take the fantasy and make it a reality. She delivers every dirty thoughts.

This is one of my favorite songs

28 Someone that You're With

This is how the list should go 1. Someone that you're with 2. Never again 3. Feelin way to damn good 4. Next contestant 5. Side of a bullet 6. Another hole in the head

29 Edge of a Revolution

This song's lyrics are so true

This new song is Superb!

The rocking Awesome song Edge Of A Revolution makes me Proud to be a Nickelback Die Hard Fan! - Curti2594

Nickelback is the worst rock band known due to some of their songs sounding lame, but this track is EPIC. (I don't think Nickelback is the worst band)

I feel like I have heard this song for years since if fits in so good with nickelback but sounds different at the same time

30 Next Contestant

Probably the most hardcore nickelback song, and my favorite. This and this afternoon are the 2 best and should be in the top ten.

My favorite nickelback song ever

How is this not above Rockstar? This song is so much better.

This song Should be in top ten

31 Something in Your Mouth

This may be the most hated Nickelback song, but I don't really see what makes it worse than other sex anthems. Is sex and eroticism something that shouldn't be in a song? The song itself is actually rather tame. Basically it is about a girl in a club that behaves suggestively and is obviously promiscuous. She also aims for men spending money on her, meaning that actually she is the one taking advantage of the men, as nowhere in the song it is sung that she does more than dancing suggestively. Actually nothing in this song basically says anything explicit about sex, except for the double entendre pick-up line in the title. Which is, I admit, really cheesy, but let's face it, there ARE women who go to clubs to take guys home with them, just as there are men going there to take women home with them.

There is absolutely NOTHING misogynic about this song. Misogyny means hatred towards women. But some years ago, people started to believe that everything sex-related about women is ...more - Martin_Canine

21?!?! Come on this is by far my favorite. When I saw them perform it on the here and now tour... It only made it their best song yet!

Well good and really like fast

This is one of the few good songs that the band has put out. The lyrics are stupid and immature as ever, but the instrumentation is nearly perfect on this song. - Pagepage21

32 Kiss It Goodbye

My all time favorite Nickelback song, the only one that could be better is shakin hands and I can't believe those two songs aren't in the top 10, too many people are going for their calm songs while I find songs with loud everything by Nickelback are way better!

One of the greatest I heard it's just great. Great and true lyrics and awesome guitar riff! - Marericmalone

Great song with a badass riff and pure energy!

Make mefull of energy. Make my body shake

33 Follow You Home

Gotta be top 5

This song is awesoms! It has the best melody in the horus and awesome lyrics! Chads voice is awesome!

What the hell is this doing all the way down here, easily 4th
!

You might break my heart... But you will comeout on the worst end of the deal!

34 Shakin' Hands

GREATEST SONG EVER! It is so flipping hilarious

This is my favorite song from all time. It should be at least #6. So fast-paced and awesome.

Best song ever should be at least fourth

One of the best songs from them!

35 Feelin' Way Too Damn Good

This song is epic! So catchy and great lyrics. I don't know how so many people hate this band. This is definitely their best song though. Check it out!

Best song from Nickelback ever

Way... Way too far down the list.

Why so low?

36 For the River

It's a pretty good song

37 Next Go Round

I love this song!

38 Into the Night

A very, very good instrumental part with decent vocals from Chad, along with good lyrics. This is definitely their best.

Good song for a lonely man.. Blooms hope inside you..

One of the best in my opinion... MUST LISTEN FROM NICKLEBACK!

39 Because of You

This song makes you feel emotions! Really cool sound as well - Curti2594

One of Nickelback's heavier songs and in my opinion, one of their better ones.

The intro is just way too damn good...
Memories from MX vs ATV Unleashed

40 Feed the Machine

I'm not a huge fan Nickelback but this song is very good. - Soulstealer

This song went for a heavier tone, and I loved every minute of it. The first intro with the drums brought me in and the band intro blew me away with some damn good guitar riffs and a nice drum beat to boot. The solo was a bit on the short side, but I am not really complaining, it was still a good solo. The lyrics were nice, as they were not about drugs, sex, etc. Probably one of the best Nickelback songs I have heard in a while.

This song was a good song Nickelback went with a much more heavier sound with this song one of the best Nickelback songs - christangrant

I'm honestly surprised this isn't in the first page.

41 Gotta Get Me Some

This one makes me think of my hot sexy wife =p

best

42 Million Miles an Hour

Amazing song, very nice guitar work.

1st song on the album and really sets the tone for a good CD, my favorite song aside from Just to get high

This song is awesome I when I hear it I think of some new sci fi movie amd expect to hear it on there!

43 Must Be Nice

Great song this one, one of their most powerful.

This is one of the few Nikelback songs that I tolerate. It’s still your pretty standard affair, but that bluesy thumping intro puts it above most of the rest.

44 Breathe

The only good song by them

Should be in a better position :/

Listened to this song over 400 times. Still awesome

45 Should've Listened

Maybe their most under appreciated song ever! It's so good! - Curti2594

Should be in at least the top 15...what

46 Saturday Night's Alright For Fighting

This is a great cover, it features Kid Rock and Dimebag Darrell - christangrant

They took a chance and did it well - Curti2594

47 Coin for the Ferryman
48 The Betrayal (Act III)
49 Sad but True
50 Holding on to Heaven

I LOVE this song and would really like to see it added to their live shows.

This song is just to Romantic to keep out of the top 10 this should be moved up higher

Great song why so low? Top 10..

TWO THINGS:
FIRST: STOP HATING NICKELBACK
SECOND: THIS IS THEIR BEST SONG.
I will vote for Home when someone adds it on the list.
