The continued growth of Nickelback is a success story built on the road, on the radio and, above all things, by great rock songs.

The album also earned the band three Grammy nominations, six Radio Music Award nominations, and one American Music Award nomination. Nickelback's previous album, Silver Side Up, reacted immediately upon release in 2001, spawning three No. 1 singles including "How You Remind Me," "Too Bad" and "Never Again."
