Disappointing, at best. What a fraud!

"I wish I'd read the existing reviews before buying this DVD.... A total waster of money, at any price! My hopes totally sunk when the DVD started and immediately said that it contains NO music from Nickelback and NO performance footage. The most Nickelback footage you get is a TINY backstage bit at the beginning. The rest of the video talks about how they promoted themselves and the music scene in Vancouver. If you are looking for "man on the street" (literally) opinions of Vancounver's music scene, then you'll love this! But to say it has anything to do at all with Nickelback's story is bordering on fraud. It shouldn't even be sold, as doing so encourages others to produce similar projects. I'm ashamed to have purchased it and inadvertently added to the coffers of these crooks (meaning, the DVD's makers, not Amazon!)."

"I bought this knowing it was "unauthorized." Little did I know just how much whining and complaining there was in the Vancouver area about the area's most famous "sons."There IS a little bit of cool footage, but this is seriously not any kind of DVD ON Nickelback. Mostly just Vancouver wanna-bes and and ex-manager (who takes a lot of credit not due him) talking about the band. You can get as much inside info on message boards on the 'net. Probably those ideas are just as valid as the ones presented here.SKIP IT!"
Sad, very sad.

"I, like the others, bought this DVD thinking it was a legit CD (I've seen the word unathorized used on videos before and thought it was just part of the name) with interviews, backstage material, and good music...instead I get a very disappointing knock-off. When I got home and took the wrapper and stickers off of the package it had in very small print on the back that the people making these DVDs got no permission from Nickelback or the producers (which means the band makes no profit) Why is this even being sold? I thought that kind of stuff was illegal."
Not what i expected

"this was a very poorly made documentary. there was barely anything about the band and they kept flashing the same still shots of them over and over again. the dvd was poor quality and it seemed like it was just pasted together in a rush. it seemed like it was skipping even though there are no scratches so it is just poor quality. i wouldn't recommend this."
