Shite Kid Rock - All Summer Long
I approach this video not knowing much about Kid Rock, apart from the fact he pumped Pamela Anderson.
So about the video.... i can see it now..... Mr "Rock" sitting with the record executives.
"Rock": i need a new song....
Executives: how about a cover of Sweet Home Alabama? That's not been about for a small while....
And that's all this is really a cover of a song from the 70's with different lyrics and a slightly different beat.
Its ridiculous that people feel the need to buy this shite when they could get the perfectly good original, and according to wikipedia people are! Since Kid Rock's release, the original song has charted in the UK charts at number 44.
Brilliant! oh and if you don't want to pay $0.99 for a DRM'd shitty download head to your local charity/record shop where I'm sure you'll be able to find an album from Lynyrd Skynyrd containing this amongst other great tunes like Free Bird (will probably cover it later!)
So overall fuck Kid Rock go give your money direct to Lynyrd Skynyrd!
