This band can play there instraments and play them well. something that makes you with you can wright that. Like the solo's in "Next Contestent" or "Follow You Home". But they may of had a little help with it. From Vinnie Paul & Dimebag, but still. Nobody play it like that anymore. And that why I love that band. Pantera And Nickelback.

Frontman Chad Kroeger has the one thing that really makes this band. Like Nirvana his way of singing says it all. Not that he can sing grate or anything like that he just has something different. It's not good, but at the sametime it's not bad. You can tell he put his hearts work into it. The song that went out to dimebag "Side Of A Bullet" you take the time to listen to it you do think like what happened there. He really does have those songs that make you think like "If Everyone Cared" he looks at life in a good way. That can be hard after all the things that life has brought out. Then again there is that one song that really pushed it. It's raciest sexest and really not puliticly currect. But that makes it a good song. And that song would be "Animals"!

These guys are very different to other bands. They can somehow change the meaning of a song and bring it to new hights. I love this band. But they never really got softer. Like "Disturbed" or "Stone sour" they just changed. From "Silverside" up to "The Long Road". They didn't get better but they never got worse it just changed in a way. But I still have one thing to say All The Right Reasons has a picture of a road on it right, but they called the 4th CD "The Long Road". What's that about really. And how come I'm the only one that realized it.
