For those of you who listen to popular "rock" music (I know that most of you don't . . .), do you think that the guitar solo is making a comeback?

I've noticed that a lot of the new music (i.e. Tool, Tantric, Godsmack, Nickleback) actually has guitar solo bridges. Not the stupid 80's "mastubatory" kind, but smooth solos that actually follow the mood of the song and add to its overall musicality.

What do ya'll think?
