I know, I know.
It's popular to hate on Nickelback nowadays.
No matter how you feel about them, the Canadian band does have a few solid tunes. This song, from 2001, TOPPED the POP charts in the United States.
Topped. The. Pop. Charts. With a heavy rock song.
The song is an emotional roller-coaster, written by Chad Kroeger about a dysfunctional relationship he had once had. It remains the signature Nickelback song to this day.
