Bad Bands

The series of events that take a once-popular band and turn them into a guitar-playing-and-singing punch line has long interested me. I don't understand why bands like New Kids on the Block or Nickelback achieve some degree of fame and general acceptance only to have fame slightly recede and then return to wash over them with a tsunami of hate. I suppose it has a lot to do with their music not being very good, and their market quickly outgrows their stylings. But instead of just wandering off, they get together, pitchforks and torches in hand, and come back. I suppose it's because they're music is really bad.
