Nickelback have sold millions of records and tickets worldwide … but the only thing more baffling than their popularity is the amount of hatred directed at the Canadian rock group (inspiring everything from hundreds of cruel memes to online petitions begging for them to be kicked off televised performances).

So how can a single band be so beloved and despised at the same time? That’s the question being posed in the latest episode of “Am I Missing Something?,” a podcast where Matt Gamba and Zach Shaw analyze popular or unpopular bands, albums or songs in an attempt to figure out what they seem to be “missing.” The goal isn’t to ridicule an artist or their work, but rather to gain a better understanding of what a majority of fans see or don’t see in something that Matt and Zach simply can’t wrap their heads around.
