Bad news for Nickelback haters: While there may be a lot of people who would be happy to never again hear “How You Remind Me,” Chad Kroeger says he’ll never get tired of singing it.
The singer made the revelation at the 30th Annual SOCAN Awards in Toronto, where he received a Most-Performed Songwriter trophy. He told the Canadian audience, “When I play the first note and everybody starts singing along at the top of their lungs … it’s the most wonderful thing. I wrote a song that everybody wants to sing along to, and it’s just amazing, and I’m so grateful. I’m grateful to the song, and I speak of it as that — it’s an entity. And it’s done so many wonderful things for me. Not having to eat Kraft Dinner for the rest of my life — unless you choose to, which I often do — is amazing.”
