I am a big fan of Nickelback for the days of tracks like "Found out about you "to their recent effort "All the wrong reason".They have always shown themselves to be a very creative band capable of delivering exceptional music. I dont claim to understand all the themes expressed in songs of alternative music however i have listened to the track "Silver side of a bullet " and everytime i hear it i cant help but think it is a song about being angry at God and writing down the name of GOD on a bullet with the hope of one day being in a position to use it - like i said I may be wrong - I hope I am wrong .Anyone with better interpretative skills ,help me understand

The song is about the murder of Dimebag Darrell (American guitarist) who was killed on stage. Its made like the murder is still alive and Chad Kroeger goes and seeks revenge on him. Its a tribute song

It's a song about Dimbag Darell who was shot on stage at December 8 2004. Dimbag Solo's were added to the song after it was recorded
