As far as I'm concerned, he deserves a death sentence for butt-farking "Sweet Home Alabama" AND "Werewolves of London"

To be fair, Werewolves of London wasn't that good to begin with.

It's like f*cking up a Chrysler Lebaron... it doesn't take much.

The fact that a deceased African dictator penned this exposé is scary as hell.

That's actually one of only a few songs that if I hear on the radio I compulsively switch the channel as soon as I possibly can. I HATE that song, I'm not sure why, because I like Warren Zevon in general. As for Sweet Home Alabama, it's up there with Hotel California, it would be a good song if it weren't for the fact that every radio station plays it 15 times a day.

I saw Kid Rock live once, he toured with Aerosmith some years ago. He wasn't too bad I guess.

Regardless, in 1999, Mr. Rock took the country by storm with his brand of rap-rock. People had done rap-rock extremely well before-Faith No More comes to mind

If Faith No More is the first thing that comes to your mind when writing about "Rap Rock" then you need to evaluate your musical thought process.

Why yes I'm a huge Faith No More fan who gets annoyed when retards only remember Epic and label it Rap-Rock..

Kid Rock's dad owned a Lincoln Mercury dealer on Van Dyke in Sterile Whites(where the tv show "Freaks & Geeks" is set), that's as big a crime as manufacturing AMC Pacers

Yet another "just copy the original article's headline" gets greenlit.

I had a hard time reading the article as it was difficult to get past the author's hatred and intolerance for anybody and anything that does not see our society through his obviously slanted spectrum.

2012-06-10 08:53:57 AM
99.9 percent of that article was mentioned in a VH1 special over ten year ago.

Plus, when you couple it with the fact that the writer is trying to couple with channeling Dennis Miller in his heyday, it just makes it horrible.

While not a Kid Rock fan, Cowboy will go down in titty bar history.

TFA is hilarious. Long, but hilarious. Remember Janet Jackson's "wardrobe malfunction" during that one Super Bowl halftime show? Nobody ever remembers that Kid Rock came out for his set wearing an American Flag as a farking poncho, because OMG we saw a nipple.

Too long to quote: the paragraph that includes "When it was recorded, all the instruments were put through an Ameri-Tune..." Hilarious.

Pretty much this. Gawker has turned into a weird site since AJ took over. There's some great articles, and there's toilet "journalism", like this article and the gay writer talking about what football players he wants to fark. (Moylan?)

This goes back to what I call the Nickleback Paradigm: Music is subjective. Like what you like, People who tell you that you suck because you like certain music? Close-minded, even though they won't admit it.

You don't have to like EVERYTHING, but closing your mind off to certain performers JUST BECAUSE SOMEONE ELSE TOLD YOU TO is probably one of the worst cases of groupthink in America.

Remember that one song they had? It was awesome. shiat, I can't remember the name of it. But it felt so good, it was like walking the blast.

/You probably feel about "Epic" the same way I do about Anthrax and "I'm the Man."
 
2012-06-10 09:24:41 AM
Kid rock is like nickleback to me. He's just another pop-rock performer, and there's about as much use getting your shiat in a twist about him as there is about being upset people buy Gas station cookies instead of your Grandma's old fashioned hand made lemon chocolate chip cooler cookies.

Or being mad that someone made some chocolate chip cookies that look kinda like Grandma's but aren't exactly the same in every way, including ingredients and taste.

I remember it well, because at the super bowl party I went to that year the crowd was mostly active duty military or recently retired military. Ritchie's show was supposed to be some kind of patriotic salute towards them, but they saw his act as being disrespectful of both the flag and the military. When he came out in that poncho and started skreeching, there were several immediate shouts of "turn that sh*t off" and "get a rope and hang the son of a b*tch" and they changed the channel to something else until the game started back up. We never saw Janet Jackson's nipple.

I will admit it, I was swept up by the rap-rock re-emergence in 1998. I was skeptical about a grown man calling himself kid, and then I saw him play every instrument in his band on TRL> The only person I can compare him to in this regard might be Prince (yeah not near as good or prolific). I saw him in concert and he was quite the showman. I liked devil without a cause, but he started going country real quick after that. I don't mind All Summer Long, and Amen is a decent song (even though I am atheist). I saw him again at the Rally for Sanity with Sheryl Crow for a song or two (thank god it wasn't picture). His songs have become the scourge of karaoke bars everywhere, but he still isn't near as bad as Pickelcrack.
Another thing..isn't this article about 2 weeks old now?
 
2012-06-10 09:59:39 AM
So the author is pissed Bob Rock supports Obama while accepting money from Romney for letting him use one of his songs? farkin' childish.

Also FNM is definately not rap-rock. Thats where the author lost me. Accepting one song as a band's entire body of work.

I didn't realize Kid Rock was still around.

Ed Finnerty: As opposed to the Gawker network?


And here I was thinking "this is a timely article, and just a little creepily prophetic for 1999."

Then I found out it was written the other day. Dude, it's Kid Rock. Next you're going to write your amazing diatribe on how Nickelback is the worst band to come out in the past 20 years.

Perhaps deliberately given the same initials as the cigarette manufacturer that would later be responsible for his ferret-with-leukemia robustness


I want my money back. I know I didn't buy this, but good grief someone thinks themselves to be pretty clever.

Thanks for that.

Oh man, you missed it. That shiat was hawt.

/I actually missed it too, tending to my infant daughter. I have it on tape, though!!
 
2012-06-10 10:06:04 AM
Kid Rock is shiatty shorthand for 'I don't like rap, but what I really mean is that you have to be trailer trash to piss on better songs because I really think white people are capable of inventing rock and roll, therefore the only people allowed to fark it up because I'm a hillbilly who hasn't grown behind smoking too much pot, drinking heavily, and generally being one of those people at your high school reunion that makes you feel better about being an insurance salesman.'

I'm not a talented writer, matter of fact I have problems just making comments on Fark readable, but I wonder if Gawker will hire me to write up some incoherent ramblings on how i don't like Lady Gaga because apparently there's no experience necessary and there isn't any sort of review process before articles get posted.

Wasn't there some supergroup thing formed up for a little while in the 90's with musicians from Anthrax and Run DMC?

I like him just fine. Wouldn't listen to his music on a dare, but he's a hell of a good guy. And this response letter he wrote to some rather unfair hatchet piece by the local paper was pretty funny: LINK
