I use those bread bag clips as ninja stars, i once hit a Jehovahs witnesses guy on the head with one.

I squinted my eyes and said "Where is your god now"

A solo is a specific part in the song written for that instrument, with or without other instrument backing.

A solo when an instrumentalist takes the predominant role in an ensemble, or when playing without accompaniment.

...modes and scales are still useless.

Technically speaking, a solo is for one sole instrument to play.

But, in most popular music it means the band becomes a backing piece while the lead (usually guitar) takes the spotlight.

The solo part, yes. But solos are often with accompaniment, unless you're talking about a classical cadenza or eingang (which never have accompaniment). Some solo literature is with accompaniment, some without, and that stands true for most any genre.
