Rock Covers: Nickelback Goes Big with ZZ Top’s “Sharp Dressed Man” [VIDEO]
Nickelback paid tribute to one of their early influences, ZZ Top, with this cool cover of "Sharp Dressed Man." This is a rocker!
The killer riff comes from ZZ Top's album, Eliminator, 1983. The "Sharp Dressed Man" video was an MTV staple - and tied in to the "Gimme All Your Lovin" theme.
A lot of people give Nickelback a hard time - but then you realize that Billy Gibbons likes them (Billy guested on Nickelback's hit song, "Rockstar").
They really tear it up - the sound is right on and the energy is there. This video is from VH1 Rock Honors.
Give Nickelback a chance. ZZ Top did.
