Kid Rock is back with three new songs!
No stranger to laying it all on the line, the controversial hitmaker shared three new songs on Tuesday (Jan. 25), including “The Last Dance,” “Rockin’,” and “We The People,” all of which speak on different topics and go in different direction sonically, but it’s “We The People” that’s got everyone talking.
Throughout the self-proclaimed “hard rock-rap tune,” the Detroit native slams President Joe Biden and the United States’ top health advisor, Dr. Anthony Fauci.
“Wear your mask, take your pills, now a whole generation’s mentally ill! Man, f*** Fauci / But COVID’s near, it’s coming to town / we gotta act quick, shut our borders down / Joe Biden does, the media embraces,” the right-leaning rocker sings before defending former President Donald J. Trump, “Big Don does it, and they call him racist.”
In addition to slamming the Biden administration, Kid Rock also denounces several media outlets such as CNN and TMZ as well as social media platforms, Facebook and Twitter. “F*** Facebook, f*** Twitter too / And the mainstream media, f*** you too,” Kid Rock sings later in the track. “F*** CNN, f*** TMZ / And you social media trolls, y’all can suck on deez (deez) / Deez nuts.”
The chorus of the politically charged single, finds Kid Rock chanting “Let’s Go Brandon,” which is infamously known to stand for “f*** Joe Biden.”
Listen to the controversial tune below.
What Is Kid Rock’s “We The People” About?
In a recent clip, shared by Kid Rock on social media, the superstar shared that “We The People” is all about.
“You know all the craziness going on in our world the last several years: politics and the polarization and watching where this country is headed, the social justice, just constantly from being a Trump fan and being attacked in the media everywhere day in and day out,” he began to explain. “I don’t mind taking a good punch, but I hit back motherf–ker and I hit hard. ‘We The People’ gets into that.”
“And there is a little bit of unity at the end of the song because at the end of the day, I had to get a lot of this stuff out,” he continued. “I write what’s real to me and once I get this stuff out, songs like ‘Don’t Tell Me How To Live’ and ‘We The People,’ eventually I’d really like to get back to bringing people together.”
He later added, “we can believe differently, I think that’s one of things that makes this country great. I think the power that we want to divide us, and that’s no good… united we stand, divided we fall… the old cliché.”
