You, sir, are an idiot.

First of all, Kid Rock is a single "artist", not a band. The man's name is "Kid Rock". He is not a band. He is Singular.

Kid Rock is a filthy plagiarising son of a bitch.

Second of all, the title of the song is "All Summer Long". It is a conglomeration of "Werewolves of London"(which has the strangest lyrics I have ever heard but has a pleasant tune) and "Sweet Home Alabama", by Lynyrd Skynyrd. You'll notice that the music is not identical to either, but retains elements of both.

It is likely that Kid Rock performed the song as a tribute, not as a ripoff.

It brings me great pleasure to type thge following phrase:

LURK MOAR, NEWFAG.

That is all.

Yet I feel it necessary to point out that Warren Zevon's "Werewolves of London" is brilliant and Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Sweet Home Alabama" is also brilliant whereas Kid Rock's amalgamation of the two songs is utter crap.

Indeed.
True terror lies in the futility of human existence.

Malcolm Reynolds is my co-pilot.

"The only freedom deserving the name, is that of pursuing our own good in our own way, so long as we do not attempt to deprive others of theirs, or impede their efforts to obtain it. Each is the proper guardian of his own health, whether bodily, or mental and spiritual. Mankind are greater gainers by suffering each other to live as seems good to themselves, than by compelling each to live as seems good to the rest." - John Stuart Mill

Truth is spoken.


Also, I don't give a flying piss who Kid Rock is.

If you live in Michigan they play it on and on ad nauseum, since it mentions us and all - at least that's the excuse people requesting it give.

Ugh...It's not even a country song and I get it on my country stations, too, on account of my living next to Detroit.
Thank FSM I stopped listening to FM radio.
