AllMusic Review by

A hard rock supergroup, Chickenfoot came out of a spontaneous on-strage collaboration between Sammy Hagar (formerly of Van Halen and Montrose, and a veteran solo artist), Michael Anthony (Hagar's onetime bandmate in Van Halen), Chad Smith (drummer with the Red Hot Chili Peppers), and Joe Satriani (one of the leading guitar heroes of the '80s and '90s). While their brand of flashy, arena-friendly hard rock was believed to have fallen out of favor in the 21st century, Chickenfoot's self-titled debut album was a surprise commercial success in 2008, and confirmed that plenty of fans were still in the market for their brand of party-hearty guitar-fueled bombast. Best + Live is a two-disc collection that brings together tracks from the group's first two studio albums (2008's Chickenfoot and 2011's Chickenfoot III) and live tracks that originally appeared on the DVD Get Your Buzz On. For fans, the set also includes one new track, the previously unreleased "Divine Termination."
