this song is amazing.

'and they say that a hero can save us. i'm not gonna stand here and wait.'
'i'll hold on to the ways of the eagles. and watch as we all fly away...'

i've always loved it and the flow of the song is something else. sure, there are people who are always going to hate nickelback so in turn, hate chad kroeger but i'll always think this is an awesome song.

5 stars.

end note: even 6 years later this song is as strong as ever. another i must put onto my next mp3 player..

Since I'm old I don't have to worry about battering either Chad or Nickelback because 'they sold out'. In fact, I'm rather amazed at how solid their output is. They're really rather brilliant at what they do.

As for Hero, it has the usually strengths of a Nickelback tune. Strong imagery, thoughtful lyrics, and a melody you can hum in the car.

I can't imagine Nickelback fans haven't heard this one, but if you haven't, it's good but obviously done with a movie in mind.

Still recommend it.

Love the song; love the voice. Chad Kroeger could sing just about anything and I'd love it!

I really don't get all the hate directed at Nickelback. I've heard that they're an obnoxious, repetitive band, that they've supposedly "sold out" artistically, and lead vocalist Chad Kroeger apparently gets flak for dating/marrying Avril Lavigne (what, celebrities aren't allowed to marry each other?). I couldn't judge myself, as I hadn't listened to their music, so when I discovered that one of my favorite songs (on a mix CD given to me by a friend) happened to be a Nickelback song, I was a little surprised. This song was by the much-hated band? If this was an example of their usual work, why all the hatred?

I don't know if "Hero" is typical of all Nickelback's work or not, but it's a powerful song that gets me in the gut whenever I hear it.

"Hero" is a rock number that first appeared on the "Spiderman" soundtrack, which is befitting. It's a strong song about the difficulties of being a hero, and being strong in the face of adversity. It's accompanied by a powerful guitar section, with my only nitpick being that the drum section can sometimes overpower the other instruments. And it does have a soft, melancholy acoustic interlude that gives the listener a slight break from the heavier guitars.

If this is an example of all Nickelback's work, then I'm going to give the rest of the band's discography a shot. If it's not their typical work... well, then at least there's one Nickelback song I really like.

I love this song, but I bought it because I have a friend that loves it too and we just recently started talking again. When we would sing it together we would fight about who gets the high part at the end. He wanted it, but naturally it should go to me. It makes me giggle every time I think about it, so I thought about finding the ring tone. No one seemed to carry it because it was so long ago, so I purchased the song and turned it into a ringtone. Now when he calls or text I get to hear our favorite song!
