Chad Kroeger & Josey Scott For Spiderman

Posted on February 12, 2008

“HERO” is a collaboration between Nickelback’s Chad Kroeger, Saliva’s Josey Scott, Soundgarden’s Matt Cameron and Theory of a Deadman’s Tyler Connolly. The “HERO” excitement began before the release was even recorded, with early rumours on who would be featured on this major track. The buzz continued to grow after the song was recorded in Vancouver in late March long before official radio dates, programmers latched onto the buzz and actively sought out the track. Chad Kroeger, lead singer/guitarist of the quadruple platinum powerhouse, Nickelback, is the mastermind behind the construction and production of this epic song. The inspiration for the song stems from the phrase, “I am so high I can hear heaven,” once told to him by a friend atop a mountain. Chad took the phrase and put together the song “Hero” that would hit the airwaves with the power of a tropical tsunami. To his credit, Chad has 5 hit songs under his belt with Nickelback including the record breaking smash, “How You Remind Me”. Josey Scott, frontman of hard rock band, Saliva, whose Island Records debut, Every Six Seconds, was released in 2001 lends his vocal harmonies to the “HERO” track. Saliva was honored with a Grammy nomination for “Your Disease” from Every Six Seconds, and the album is currently approaching platinum status. “The moment I heard ití¢ä‰åŒ_ I wanted Chad’s song,” expresses Josey Scott when asked about working with Chad on the “HERO” single. “It was only supposed to be Josey and I, and then it was one thing that fell into place after another,” comments Chad on the additions of Matt Cameron (Soundgarden drummer) and Tyler Connolly (Theory of a Deadman guitarist) to the line up that recorded “HERO”. And here are the lyrics… so you will be able to sing along with your radio! HERO: I am so high I can hear heaven I am so high I can hear heaven Oh but heaven, no heaven, don’t hear me And they say that a hero could save us I’m not gonna stand here and wait I hold on to the wings of the eagles Watch as we all fly away. Someone told me love would all save us How could that be Look what love gave us A world full of killing and blood spilling that world never came And they say that a hero could save us I’m not gonna stand here and wait I hold on to the wings of the eagles Watch as we all fly away. And now that the world isn’t ending It’s love that I’m sending to you It isn’t the love of a hero And that’s why I fear it won’t do And they say that a hero could save us I’m not gonna stand here and wait I hold on to the wings of the eagles Watch as we all fly away. And they’re watching us…watching us Watching usí¢ä‰åŒ_ as we all fly away and they’re watching us… they’re watching us – Watching us as we all fly away
