Music Video: "Someday" - Nickelback

The Canadian post-grunge band Nickelback followed up their 2001 album, Silver Side Up with 2003's The Long Road. The album's lead single was "Someday" which reached number 7 on Billboard's Hot 100 chart. It details the break up of a couple and a man's wanting to repair the relationship instead of just throwing in the towel.

I first saw the music video on Vh1's Top 20 Video Countdown in 2003. It's pretty literal in terms of the concept and how it explains the video. But the true plot slowly unravels starting at the end of the first chorus. It's a good video and while it may come off a little cliché (like the song's lyrics) everything works well together. The most important thing is the ending and it's anything but a music video cliché. It leaves you wondering about what happened. Check it out below or listen to the song at the right. (It's track 2!)
