Nickelback's Chad Kroeger And His Hair Throughout The Years

Posted: Updated:

Out of Hanna, Alta., comes one man who has not only had his hair compared to Mr. Noodles, but also to Jesus.

He may have never "made it as a wise man" and he "couldn't cut it as a poor man stealing," but he has blessed us all with a million hair memes.

Yup, it's Nickelback's Chad Kroeger. The man, the myth, the Canadian legend.

Chad and his Canadian bandmates first made it on the scene with their hit rock song "How You Remind Me" back in 2001. Admit it, you loved that song at the time even though you claim to hate it now. It's okay, we get it.

Since entering the spotlight a mere 15 years ago, a lot of people have insulted Kroeger's hair. We can't think any other musician has seen so much scrutiny when it comes to his or her mane.

Yet, many have appreciated the tresses of the guy who once did a duet with Carlos Santana.

Chad's mop is dyed an interesting yellow blond. His long curls cascading just above his shoulders and effortlessly parted in the middle. A signature look, some might say.

The Nickelback frontman admitted in an interview in 2013 that he had a few rebellious 'do years back in the day.

"Everyone’s allowed to walk around with a bad-hair day for a couple of years," Kroeger told the Edmonton Journal in 2003. "I didn’t want to cut it, I was holding on to it like it was my ‘(screw) you.’ But I look back and watch the How You Remind Me video and think, ‘Good Lord, boy. You look 40 years old.’ I’m 28. I shot the video when I was 26 and people are like, ‘You’re 35? 36?’ I’m like: ‘OK, Hair’s gotta go.'"

And off the hair went. The curls were chopped. The look was smoother. Chad became a whole new man.

So, here it is everyone: The hair evolution of Chad Kroeger. Just 'cause. We hope you enjoy.
