I can honestly say that there is nothing special about Nickelback. They are like every other band out there. They don't have any unique sounds or an outstanding vocalist. Their lyrics are good but don't differ from most of the bands out there. I can't they are the best. But I love their music. I have 2 of their albums and they are good. You can listen to them on any kind of occasion. Everytime I make one of my own special mixes I always throw in a song or two from them to fill in the gaps.
