"Side of a Bullet" is Nickelback's seventh and final single from the album All The Right Reasons. The song was released only to U.S. rock stations.

Background[edit]

The song is a tribute song to Dimebag Darrell who was shot on stage while performing in Columbus, Ohio. The lyrics for "Side of a Bullet" focus on the murder of Darrell and the aftermath thereof. The guitar solo is by Dimebag from the Far Beyond Driven era. Dimebag's girlfriend Rita Haney and his brother Vinnie Paul sent Nickelback the track. At first Nickelback wanted to have Vinnie Paul playing on the track but he declined by stating that Nickelback's drummer Daniel Adair performed just as well as he could.[1]

It charted on the U.S. Mainstream Rock Chart, peaking at #7, giving Nickelback their fourth top-ten hit on the chart from All the Right Reasons.
