Last month, rap-rocker Kid Rock released “Don’t Tell Me How to Live,” an angry song spouting all the favorite talking points of conservative dads wearing wrap-around shades who yell at their phones in the front seats of their cars. Now, Kid Rock has issued a follow-up statement addressed to critics of the song, and for someone who claims to not give a fuck, he seems to be very salty about it all.
Just as he took three years too long to complain about “snowflakes” and “participation trophies” with any relevancy, so too did Kid Rock take almost a month to issue the statement below regarding those who spoke unkindly about “Don’t Tell Me How to Live” (The Pit, admittedly, being one such entity).
“All you pansy ass woke critics and trolls are exactly what brought me to create ‘Don’t Tell Me How To Live,'” said Kid Rock via his Facebook.
“Thank you for the inspiration! Keep shoveling coal on the fire you idiots! I fucking love it! To the Kid Rock dysfunctional family, we already know there is NO tribe like ours in music, period. Stay tuned for more songs to be released soon, an album early next year and god willing… a monster 2022 tour announcement!!!
“Merry Christmas – Kid Rock #NoSellout
“PS, Remember “Sticks and Stones may break my bones….?” Whatever happened to that shit? Quit being so dam offended, toughen up and enjoy life! We all know the media, social and mainstream, are completely out of hand and only in the business of clicks and views nowadays. Don’t take the bait anymore!! Do some research and seek truth or fuck it, just ignore ’em and rock harder!”
The statement acts as a publicity push to keep people talking about the song, as this is the most relevant Kid Rock has been in a decade.
