The brainchild of NYC pianist/arranger Scott Bradlee, A Motown Tribute to Nickelback offers an alternative take on Nickelback's recorded legacy by painstakingly converting the Canadian modern rock band's entire oeuvre into authentic Motown styles of the 1960's and 70's.
A Motown Tribute to Nickelback rose to prominence in November of 2011, in response to an internet petition protesting Nickelback's scheduled performance at the Detroit Lions' Thanksgiving Day halftime show. The band's debut video, a tambourine-heavy cover of "How You Remind Me," quickly achieved notoriety on the internet as a means to satisfy both Nickelback fans and anti-fans.
The band has been featured in media outlets such as The Huffington Post, the Village Voice, and the Vancouver Sun, and was described as "killer" on Nickelback's official Twitter feed.
