Quote of the Day
Chad Kroeger Quotes
I'm always at the opposite end of the spectrum, the opposite of hipster culture, and I enjoy that.
After this many years of being a lead singer in a touring rock band, I've had my fair share of fun. But those days are long behind me.
I believe in karma.
I definitely consider myself a songwriter first because that's my best attribute.
I honestly think that with every song you release you have to keep winning your own fans over again.
I would call myself more spiritual than religious.
I'll never be the best guitar player.
It's a small percentile of people who see one dime out of the music business.
It's okay to have faith in something that you can't see or touch.
When you are writing a song for something else, if you are doing something for money, I always think that's bad luck.
You never know what your parents are going to say when you tell them you're getting married - especially when it's with someone they haven't met yet.
Any artist that is even surviving right now is a dark horse because things change pretty fast. You're a superstar one day and wake up the next day and you're anonymous. To be successful in any way is beating the odds right now, I think.
At the end of the day, the Golden Rule is called the Golden Rule for a reason - do unto others as you would have done to you.

It's more difficult to write a song about having your heart ripped out of your chest while you're in love. Because it lacks honesty. And the honesty comes through in the music, it really does.
Sometimes I write about things that never happened to me that wind up happening to me. When you put things out in the universe, sometimes they wind up coming true.
Too many times I've heard records from bands who were obviously, like, 'Well, we're at least gonna do half as well as we did on our last record. At least we can count on that.' You really have to keep that initial hunger that made some of your first best songs your first best songs. You have to keep that fire in the belly.
