Among the childhood memories that Kroeger recounts are:
Having to be home when the streetlights came on.
Watching A Nightmare on Elm Street
at the movie theater accompanied by an adult because of its R rating (most of us just snuck in).
Trying to hit 88 miles per hour so they can go back in time like the DeLorean car in Back To The Future
The *69 telephone code for last-call return in the USA and Canada. The Kroegers and Peake used the feature to make prank calls.
Thinking they'd hit "first base" when holding hands with a girlfriend.
Their first slow dance to Prince's "Purple Rain
Listening to songs that influenced Nickelback's music such as Motörhead's "Ace of Spades
" and Guns n' Roses' "Sweet Child O' Mine
