Kid Rock’s “All Summer Long” Sounds Scarily Like A Hit

America, please resist. It’s going to be tough, but I need to ask you to say no to a song that mixes “Sweet Home Alabama,” “Werewolves Of London” and “Night Moves” into a new “Summer Of ’69.” Please, avoid downloading this, leave this type of summer jam (God, I beg you, don’t let this be one) to Uncle Kracker, and take the effort to listen to the aforementioned four chestnuts separately. Maybe that way we can force Kid Rock to abandon his boring-ass country-rock troubadour shtick and go back to rapping about how he needs to smoke three joints just to mow the lawn. [YouTube]

    I can picture myself drinking Coors’ and beating up homosexuals all summer long to this jam!

    when you said “Werewolves of London” i didn’t think you meant, like, literally, “Werewolves of London”. good lord, i didn’t get past 10 seconds and i think i’m gonna be sick.

    @instinct after dark: Switch those around and you might have a better way to spend your time.

    i skipped ahead after i started feeling ill, only to reach the line “didn’t have no internet / but man i never will forget.” then i blacked out for a while.

    Don’t believe a second of this. Kid Rock had his hair in a makeshift high top fade back in 1989.

  • Camp Tiger Claw

    I’m not sure what just happened but when I came to I was pissing all over my laptop screaming “PUT IT OUT! PUT OUT!”

    @Ned Raggett: Drinking homosexuals and beating up Coors’ Light?

    I’m confused.

    How did he get the license for these songs?

    Also, got his from Wiki:
    “The single ‘All Summer Long’ is also the official theme song of WWE Backlash 2008. It will be the first collaboration between the Kid and WWE in over 6 years.”

    Six years huh? Was his stuff not good enough for WWE during that time?

    yknow, another song that this jam sounds a Whole lot like is “Let There Be Rock” by the Drive-by Truckers…

    still, i am never going to be able to really hate on Mr. Rock, and his half-assed recycling of other people’s music is a big part of the reason i think… it’s just always seemed like he should rightfully be playing for drink tickets at a dumpy bar in suburban Michigan but he befriended a midget, which got him on mtv, and now here he is. it is goddamned inspirational.

    Holy crap. Haven’t Warren Zevon’s kids suffered enough?

  • westartedthis

    @AquaLung: well you just knew it couldn’t be the FIRST collaboration between the WWE and Kid Rock.

  • StarlingSlipstream

    This is what we are leaving to the next generation of music fans? Sad. Just Sad. Actually, I am blaming Idolator a little bit for even posting this. Bad boy!

  • Lax Danja House

    1) I can’t believe it took me 45 seconds to figure out it was Sweet Home Alabama.

    2) Wow what a shitty song.

    3) Wow what a lowlife. Open fires on the beach are ILLEGAL.

  • MayhemintheHood

    @instinct after dark: HAHAHAHA. This is definitely a steakhead summer anthem. My brother’s friends in Kansas will probably do exactly what you joke about. Sad.

  • futurehorse

    Is that the lead singer of Puddle of Mudd?

  • saturn

    If you didn’t want this to get stuck in my head in an endless loop, why did you post it?

    I’m going to Northern Michigan tomorrow and now I’m ashamed.

    Dammit Kid Rock! Why couldn’t you have quit after Soul Food and Grits for Breakfast?

    @owenmeany: If Kid Rock is right, you’d probably be moving CLOSER to what’s depicted here anyway…Who knew that Northern Michigan was home to rednecks, confederate flags and swamps?

    I’m still upset at Jerry Lee Lewis for ruining that perfectly good duets album with a Kid Rock appearance.

    who wears confederate bikinis in michigan?

    I think it’s unfair to compare this song to Bryan Adams’ ‘Summer of 69′. Adams’ song is far superior to this crap.

    @RTX007: At least they and the heirs owners of the Skynard catalog will be getting paid – or at least should be.

  • the earl grey

    what about when the Beach Boys ‘all summer long” closes out “american graffitti” ?
    top that

    @HONEYBFLY: i’m pretty sure, at this point, that Stuff White People Like should be its own Stuff White People Like entry.

    This song makes me hurt in places I never knew existed. And “Night Moves” is in there too? DId not catch that in the “gag” song. Warren Zevon should arise and kick his redneck ass.

    It’s the simple things in life like when and where
    We didn’t have no internet
    But man I never will forget
    The way the moonlight shined upon her hair

    LOL excellent lyrics…. I am sure some of this crappy song will appeal to some people that can identify with the location or the feelings we had during summer breaks in our late teen years. Yeah the nostalgia of those memories will make us smile but really…. this song sucks.

    I for one can’t get past the werewolves in London sampling. It’s just wrong… I am sure for people in this generation it is catchy and cool, but for people that know the tune, it is just wrong. For those that don’t understand, just imagine smelling a great steak cooking on the grill… and you look foward to a great meal…. then someone hands you a plate with a dog turd on it… yeah, that about sums it up.

    No disrespect to people in N Michigan, I am sure you have/had great summer parties … A lot of us have those fond memories, for me, the banks of the Cimarron River in Oklahoma my junior year… jumping off the train bridge into the river and cooking out. Passing around the bottle of Cherry Vodka (you make do with what you got) and chasing with coke.

    But if this clown sampled another classic rock song and rapped about “rollin’ in his 5.0″ or “Jumping off train bridges into the Oklahoma river”, it would still suck.

    I’ve been surfing online greater than three hours lately, but I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all site owners and bloggers made excellent content material as you probably did, the web will be much more helpful than ever before.
