A lot of supposed rebel rockers have become all-too-willing cogs in the machine they once supposedly raged against. But not Kid Rock.
While guys like Neil Young are asking ‘how high’ when Fauci says ‘jump’, others like Kid Rock are still hard at work, perfecting the middle finger of anti-authoritarianism.
In case you hadn’t noticed, there’s still this thing called the Constitution. And for a lot of us, that old parchment is still a big deal.
With Biden fumbling his way from one crisis to another (most of them self-inflicted) old Joe has accidentally found the one promise he can (sort of) keep. With polling numbers down in the 30s, he is now doing his part to unite Americans — albeit against him.
It’s Kid Rock, so you can expect the salty language. And his sound is a mix of old-school rock, some country, and urban beats that might take you in some unexpected directions, musically.
But don’t make the mistake of assuming this is just a latecomer rehash of the Dunk-on-Biden trend that immediately followed those FJB chants at public gatherings or the LGB reimagining of the taunt. There’s some of that, sure, but it’s more about celebrating a great nation, and the people who make it great.
Somewhere in the midst of Kid Rock’s cheerful anti-authoritarianism, his boisterous love of America, and some swipes at specific Biden administration policy failures, there’s something else you won’t hear from the White House, or almost anywhere from today’s crop of Democrats.
It’s an intentional call for all of us to come together around the things that unite us, and to kick the crap that divides us to the curb. ‘We all bleed red’, after all.
What crap? He calls some of it out by name — Big Tech, social media, CNN, mainstream media, COVIDictators, and (if you catch it), he has a special taunt for anyone trying to divide the country by race.
Oh, and this song is better at quoting the nation’s founding documents than that other guy, talking about, ‘you know, the thing’.
So, is the song any good?
Well, here’s the counter on YouTube, after just a couple of days.
Looks like ‘We The People’ are already enjoying the hell out of it.
Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass is a collection, from the book of Psalms, regarding how David rolled in prayer. I bet you haven’t heard these read, prayed, or sung in church against our formidable enemies — and therein lies the Church’s problem. We’re not using the spiritual weapons God gave us to waylay the powers of darkness. It might be time to dust them off and offer ‘em up if you’re truly concerned about the state of Christ’s Church and of our nation.
Also included in this book, Psalms of War, are reproductions of the author’s original art from his Biblical Badass Series of oil paintings.
This is a great gift for the prayer warriors. Real. Raw. Relevant.
