RIP Dime | Reviewer: Brandin | 11/19/12
Probably my favorite solo ever, sends chills down my spine hearing it and thinking about Dime being gone at the hands of a lunatic.. May he rot in hell for eternity. And to Dime... ROCK IN PEACE!! To the people who love the end, I agree!! And to think it almost got cut from the finished product... Thank God it didn't!

It kills me to hear this song when I play along to it, because I feel bad for trying to even come close to matching Dimebag. He's the only mother fucka that could do this, and Nathan Gale can get raped by Hitler in hell for what he did.

Consider the point in time when this song was written, and what was going on with the band. Consider Phil and the problem he had.
This song is meant to empower us, the general populous, as much as it was meant to empower him and the band to get him through his heroin addiction.
Read the lyrics as a note written to Phil, or even by Phil written to his band mates and himself.
The true musical genius in this is the way the tones and sounds are symbolic to the emotions felt by the band during their harder times. To put everything together that way is something we may not see another band do for a long time.
These guys were truly one of a kind, and it's saddening that Nathan Gale had to be the way he was. I seriously think they should have shot him in both knees and kept him alive so he could be tortured by other inmates for the rest of his life in prison...Dying was the easy way out for that asshole.
It's easy to see why we haven't seen anyone as amazing as these guys were, they may have a fear of being shot on stage by someone they don't even know...
Here's to you Dime, and for the years you have and will continue to influence the industry through life and death and all of your hard work.
Get your pull people. Get your pull...

This has to be one of the best songs to chill to, first heard it when I took one of my horses on the near-by mountain trail, funny thing is, it was actually raining. R.I.P Dime Bag, Pantera forever.
whoa | Reviewer: Mar
Having listened to Pantera all my life, this song completely blew my mind, as all of the others do. But the ending was so intense, so amazing. I'll always be a fan of Pantera. Hold those glasses high, to the red bearded man in the sky. rip dimebag <3

Ok, Floods is probally my favorite pantera song,
it's not as heavy as the others but it is just so
inspiring.Both solos are so kick ass and the whole song is just worth listening too over and over.
RIP-"Dimebag" Darrell Abbott
Pantera itself is awesome, and this song is really no different, and while I'm a fan of heavier things like from Suicide Note PtII, I can't help but find the ending solo in this song beyond amazing. Combined with the background storm sound brings it near to if not indeed perfection as far as lighter sounds go.

for christmas i made my friend learn the solo. then i recorded it with my phone so now its my ringtone. that way even when my girlfriend calls bitching to me about something i dont give a shit
Perfect song for rainy day.. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/2/07
This is fucking fantastic ... that solo at the end of fucking song is one of the best things i have heard in my life .DIME FOREVER
this song is beyond awesome. a long time ago, when I first heard it , I remember I listened to it daily ..same song on and on and on. the lyrics are really expressive..are about the human beings that are cold hearted.and the guitar solo from the end is just so touching that blows me away
