Hey Man, Nice Shot is a song performed by Filter in 1995. The song was written about the January 22, 1987, public suicide of Pennsylvania state treasurer R. Budd Dwyer. Dwyer had been convicted on bribery charges in December 1986, and was expected to receive a long sentence from U.S. District Court Judge Malcolm Muir. Professing his innocence and decrying the legal system, Dwyer shot himself with a .357 Magnum during a press conference.
Although singer and songwriter Richard Patrick frequently clarified this in interviews, as well as the fact that he had first written the song in 1991 before the band even had a record deal, the song's popularity was augmented by a widespread perception that it was written about the 1994 suicide of Kurt Cobain.

This song is fairly easy to FC on the guitar, the only part you may have difficulty with is the chorus ("A man, has gun, hey man, have fun.') where there is a long string of Hammer Ons and Pull Offs, especially the outro that are Green, Blue, Orange, then Blue, Yellow, Green, then Green, Red, Blue, then Yellow, Red, Green. However, if you've mastered this part of the song the rest is pretty basic.
The bass, however, is a different story. The bass has many more notes than the guitar during the verses. It also features the same note pattern as the guitar during the chorus. The green notes are substituted for open strum notes that alternate between the chorus, making it a fun, yet challenging song to get the hang of.
Drums can be difficult, the chart is very odd and features weird alternations between the bass pedal notes and the snares, making it a difficult song to fc.
