    Not so much envy as it is resentment...

    Overexposure is the first thing.

    Next is their record label/promoters who think they can take anything, and with enough hype, overpromotion and bullying, make us think the band is great (Linsey Lohan & Disney for example..., Miley Cyrus is another). Add to that the Millennial type of attitude and all the self-importance that goes along with it and it adds up to Nickelback.

    Add to that the overplayed ex-grunge fake genre of music they play and it is easy to see that fake personas and crappy attempts at good music just don't cut it with diehard rock 'n rollers. For any band to show up and think they are all that without earning their spot on the bill generates extreme hatred, and it is not something you can easily walk away from.
