Kid Rock’s got plenty to say, and he manages to pack a lot of it into his new song “Don’t Tell Me How to Live,” which features a guest turn by members of the band Monster Truck.
The track provides a mix of Rock’s rap stylings against some gritty guitar backing, while serving up a mix of braggodocio, namechecking past Kid Rock songs and calling his shots at things troubling his world view. In general, the track harkens back to the sounds that put Rock on the map in the first place in the late ’90s and early 2000s.
“What’s up with all the backlash / All you snowflakes / Here’s a news flash,” says Rock at one point, then proceeding to rip rhymes about participation trophies for children, offended millennials and fake news outlets (there’s CNN and NBC logos in the video if you wonder exactly who he’s calling out).
Rock and Monster Truck’s Jon Harvey trade vocals, smoke cigars and generally seem to be having a good time with the song. The video takes a light hearted turn later with Rock blasting out of this world, hanging onto to a giant middle finger statue that is propelling his journey to elsewhere.
