    It's about a real life story of a guy committing suicide with a gun in front of an crowd of spectators.

    Yeah one of my best friends from high-school committed suicide :( But that's not the friends it reminds me of.

    It’s a dark song about suicide. “Hey man, good shot”... the lyrics are horrible.

    Yeah I did some research now that you mentioned it:Hey Man Nice Shot by Filter - Songfacts

    It's a rather interesting case, thanks. Although that kinda ruins the song :( Thanks for sharing.

    What I find interesting is that you actually knew that fact about the song. Do you always investigate the song?

    I'm sorry to hear that. I never knew anyone that took their own life. Why the "Prayers" rating? I was just letting you know who the band wrote the song about, not my personal interpretation of the lyrics.

    I heard the lead singer, Richard Patrick, talking about it on satellite radio years ago. He caught a lot of flack for making a song about something as personal as suicide, but he felt justified because the guy called a press conference to do it. Because the guy wanted his death to be a spectacle, he felt like writing a song about it was almost like honoring him. He wouldn't have written the song about someone's private battle with depression.

    No worries, my best friends pain is over. I don't really associate a song with it's origins either. If it's a good tune then I listen. I'm also a fan of Nirvana though. And he died too.

    I knew about it, and I still enjoy it. Though I don't relish in the memory of the man killing himself, like Richard Patrick seemed to.
