Chad Kroeger doesn't understand Nickelback's dance remixes.

The 'Too Bad' rockers' songs get changed to fit with many different countries around the world, but the singer and guitarist prefers to their hard rocking originals.

He exclusively told BANG Showbiz: ''Yeah, there's been tons or remixes with dance beats and all that kind of stuff. It's always for some territory like Timbuktu, where there's only one radio station and the whole territory and the guy is like, 'It's top 40 and they love it' cos its got a rhythmic beat to it!''

Chad also joked the practice of remixing songs once they become popular must upset some people, such as Gotye, who had a surprise worldwide hit with 'Somebody That I Used to Know' earlier this year.

He added: ''You look at an artist like Gotye, and I'm sure he thinks of himself as a really cool indie guy with street cred and now it's just like, 'boom boom boom, [sings] 'You didn't have to cut me off' boom boom boom.' That must really twist his soul!''

Nickelback are touring the UK as part of their 'Here & Now' European tour until October 8. Visit or for more information.
