Nickelback: what's the deal?

They sell millions of records, and seem to be one of the most hated bands in the world.

The fact that Nickelback were invited to be the half time entertainment at this year's Grey Cup in Vancouver produced an online backlash, and the vitriol isn't restricted to Canada

After the band accepted an invitation to play during the half time celebrations of a Thanksgiving Day NFL game in the United States, an online petition against the performance collected more than 55,000 signatures.
