"Fly" was included on both Hesher and Curb and was the first single produced by Nickelback.
In 1997, Brandon Kroeger left the band and the band searched for a new drummer. Roadrunner A&R Ron Burman told Hit Quarters that one of his West Coast scouts sent him the self-released album and, suitably impressed, he travelled to Vancouver to see them perform live.

Nickelback signed a record deal with EMI and Roadrunner Records in 1999.
