(Breitbart.com)   Hollyweird hipsters prevent Romney campaign from using their song, but American rock royalty Lynyrd Skynyrd swoops in and offers "Sweet Home Alabama" instead because they "still believe in the trickle-down effect"   (breitbart.com) divider line 152

Why does that not surprise me in the slightest.
 
2012-08-17 12:03:15 PM
In Birmingham they love the Governor.
 
2012-08-17 12:03:54 PM
Lynyrd Skynyrd is still relevant?

When you want Free Bird played again, who are you gonna call?

"Sweet Home Alabama" is such an perfect fit for a Michigan-born Mormon who was Governor of Massachusetts.

Gimme Back My bullets would be nice, but Sweet Home Alabama better reflects the direction the modern GOP wants to take the country. That Smell might be good too.

Why hasn't Nugent given them his entire catalog by now?

And who will win Alabama by 20 points.

On another note, while the current incarnation of Skynard might be red necks, I seriously doubt that Ronnie Van Zandt would be supporting Romney.
 
2012-08-17 12:20:10 PM
"Tuesday's Gone" would be good.
 
2012-08-17 12:23:37 PM
Oh, Lynyrd Skynyrd offering up their greatest songs for the Romney campaign? That should hold a lot of opportunities. Let's think of all the good LS songs.

Let's see, there's "Sweet Home Alabama," aaaand... hmmm, oh, "Free Bird." Let's see, what else.. hmmm.... Sweet Home.. Free Bird.. aaand...

Well, then Ronnie Van Zandt hated America and the children. and he loved the terrorists.

Well, given his avoidance of serving in Vietnam, Mitt could be the protagonist in "Give Me Three Steps." And "That Smell" could serve as the theme song for all of those seniors who can no longer afford healthcare if Mitt's Medicare voucher program is enacted.

And lose Massachusetts by 20 and Michigan by 6. It's a funny world, isn't it?

I bet they don't play that in concert anymore given that the post-Ronnie band's biggest hit is "God and Guns."

Ok libtards let me break it down for you. Mitt Romney is a legend and the last of a dyin' breed. If we don't elect Romney this election, in twenty years liberals will have taken us to the edge of forever. Real Americans will become an endangered species and we will be locked in a vicious cycle of hate and godlessness as street survivors. Vote Romney, the last rebel we can have to save this nation and tell Obama to gimme back my bullets. Or do you all want a second helping of hope and change? God and guns and religion all the way! USA USA!

I wonder if Romney can learn to do a good rebel yell? A redneck makeover would be just the sort of game changer he needs. Sort of like "trailer park eye for the robot guy".

He should talk to The Dead Kennedys
 
2012-08-17 01:20:04 PM
Ah, Breitbart. The site that thinks when a liberal entertainer expresses their opinion, they should "shut up and sing", but gives D-list actors plenty of space to spew some of the most retarded derp ever seen.

/seriously, why can't this site go burn in hell like its awful founder?

This has real electoral implications as Alabama is a swing state that Obama desperately needs to win.
 
2012-08-17 01:21:35 PM
Not surprising that Romney chose a Lynyrd Skynyrd song given their campaign and the band are ending the same way.

There was Nuthin' Fancy about that attempt.

Considering the way he's been running the campaign, maybe he should see if Tool will let them use Eulogy.
 
2012-08-17 01:22:34 PM
Van Zant is also supporting Mitt Romney's presidential bid, and will be on hand at the Republican National Convention where the band is slated to perform alongside Trace Adkins and Kid Rock....

Give me three steps toward the door and you'll never see me no more.

Yes this is a song that should be sung at every Republican rally.

I like those fancy Fords and Chevys. Really sprung for the big bucks.

True Fact: I once kicked Johnny Van Zandt (their current singer) out of my record store for bothering the customers. He was drunk & disorderly... and short.
