Here And Now by Nickelback
Released: Nov 2011
Label: Roadrunner Records
Nickelback are scorned as the embodiment of what's wrong with modern hard rock: macho, misogynistic, violent. Yet they're just the latest in a long line of bad men reaching back to the blues. When, on the lovers' quarrel "This Means War," Chad Kroeger growls "You went and brought a knife to an all-out gun fight," he may be channeling Skip James, who sang "I get my 22-20. I cut that woman in two." But as with all bad dudes, Nickelback try to assuage their guilt with appeals to peace, in this case "When We Stand Together," a plea to our troubled world to wake up, unite and begin the healing.
