Led by a super-powered riff, the song is loud and angry, but so simple it's more punk than rock. Full-on drumming and Chad Kroeger's clean sing/shout complete the straight-to-the-point sound.
The tune – if it deserves that name – is again simplistic but ideally suited to this Canadian group of four. It's even less interesting than their 2001 hit How You Remind Me (Number four in the UK chart), but Nickelback are born to play this stuff.
They have stripped down to basics in song writing and arrangement, and the decision could well pay off.
