Best Canadian Album

Nickelback, All The Right Reasons

It may not have won over critics but it certainly was one of the biggest albums of the year. Whatever the reasons for a Nickelback win—the marketing machine? Chad Kroeger’s hair?—it’s hard to deny the impact of the Alberta-bred, Vancouver-based band. A simultaneous number one album in Canada and the US meant Nickelback was everywhere in 2005 and a solid fan base converted into enough votes to win best Canadian album. Take that, Joel Plaskett!

Runners-up: Joel Plaskett, La De Da; Matt Mays and El Torpedo, Matt Mays and el Torpedo
