    From Yahoo interview:

    YAHOO: Another new thing on No Fixed Address is you've written what might be your most poignant political song, "Edge of a Revolution." What motivated you to go that route?

    CHAD KROEGER: I don't know if North America is on the edge of a revolution, but I wanted it to feel that way in the song, since it feels that way in so many other parts of the world. You turn on CNN and it's like, "Wow!" We'd have it on for 15 minutes and we'd have to shut it off because it was so depressing. The state of affairs in the world these days is so dismal. And I think that's where the song definitely came from. While we were working, the [shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri] was a major story and there was rioting like crazy. So it definitely felt like the seeds of revolution were being planted.

    "Edge Of A Revolution"
    Head high, protest line
    "Freedom" scribbled on your sign
    Headline, New York Times
    Standing on the edge of a revolution

    Hey, hey, just obey.
    Your secret's safe with the NSA
    In God we trust or the CIA?
    Standing on the edge of a revolution

    Yeah, we're standing on the edge of a revolution
    Revolution, revolution, revolution

    No, we won't give up, we won't go away
    'Cause we're not about to live in this mass delusion
    No, we don't wanna hear another word you say
    'Cause we know they're all depending on mass confusion
    No, we can't turn back, we can't turn away
    'Cause it's time we all relied on the last solution
    No, we won't lay down and accept this fate
    'Cause we're standing on the edge of a revolution

    Wall Street, common thief
    When they get caught they all go free
    A brand-new yacht and a finder's fee
    Standing on the edge of a revolution

    Same shit, different day
    Can't keep fed if I can't get paid
    We'll all be dead if the shit don't change
    Standing on the edge of a revolution

    Yeah, we're standing on the edge of a revolution
    Revolution, revolution, revolution

    No, we won't give up, we won't go away
    'Cause we're not about to live in this mass delusion
    No, we don't wanna hear another word you say
    'Cause we know they're all depending on mass confusion
    No, we can't turn back, we can't turn away
    'Cause it's time we all relied on the last solution
    No, we won't lay down and accept this fate
    'Cause we're standing on the edge of a revolution

    We'll all be dead if this shit don't change
    Hey hey hey hey

    What do we want? We want the change
    And how're we gonna get there? Revolution
    What do we want? We want the change
    Standing on the edge of a revolution

    What do we want? We want the change
    And how're we gonna get there? Revolution
    What do we want? We want the change
    Standing on the edge of a revolution

    No, we won't give up, we won't go away
    'Cause we're not about to live in this mass delusion
    No, we don't wanna hear another word you say
    'Cause we know they're all depending on mass confusion
    No, we can't turn back, we can't turn away

    And how're we gonna get there? Revolution
    What do we want? We want the change
    Standing on the edge of a revolution

    What do we want? We want the change
    And how're we gonna get there? Revolution
    What do we want? We want the change

    I didn't think it was possible, but I dislike Nickelback even more now.

    The only thing that won't be looted in Ferguson will be Nickelback CD's.

    I'm guilty of liking my share of bad music, but Nickelback is such complete shit, I don't know how anyone can stand it.

    If they were serious about it they would set up and do a free concert in the parking lot of the store where the gentle giant stole the cigars on the day the Grand Jury announces their decision.
