1000 No. 1s Video Series Day 14:
Nickelback Talks About Topping the Hot 100


2011 was the year that Billboard celebrated the 1000th No. 1 song on the Hot 100. As we look back on this year in music, we're celebrating that milestone with a month-long series of videos --- one for each day of December -- chatting with 31 of the hitmakers who rocketed to the top of the chart since its inception in 1958. SEE THE FULL CHART HERE.

On day 14 of our 1,000 Hot No. 1s video series, we move from yesterday's pair of 80s Tiffany No. 1s -- "I Think We're Alone Now" and "Could've Been." -- to a new millennium rocker as we chat with the guys of Nickelback about their charttopper, "How You Remind Me." "That was our big introduction to the world," Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger tells Billboard.com. "And that's the best thing that ever happened to us, that launching pad. It was 10 years ago now that that song went to No. 1. So we've been able to stick around for a decade, but none of this would have been possible had it not been for that song."

Kroeger is right about that timing. "How You Remind Me," from the band's 2001 album "Silver Side Up," peaked at No. 1 on Dec. 22, 2001 and held onto the top spot for four weeks.

Be sure to come back tomorrow (Dec. 15) for the next 1000 No. 1s video: Jennifer Lopez talks about her No. 1, "If You Had My Love".
