Both awesome songs non the less, lyrically and musically.
lol yeah but thats why i said ripped it off, coz he didnt use the lyrics. if he did, it would of been a cover. instead, he used the music for his own song. but yeah, credit to both songs, i guess. i kind of just a little bit, hate kid rock. but give full credit to any musician.

im sure he did it legally, Metallica of all people, as much as i love and worship them, would be the first to sue for copyright infringement.

How can you say he is more of a genius? No one actually knows what Kid Rock has achieved in his life, sure he hasn't done a maths/physics degree but does that really mean he isn't smart?

Seriously guys, I like the way you all call him a moron. But he is the millionaire laughing at you all, go ahead and say what you want. He became successful from his own talent, whether you like it or not. Don't criticize what you can't achieve yourself. It is arrogant and pathetic.
Indeed go him for making a success for himself and getting money. So he is most definately succesfull when it comes to making money.

I also have the right to criticize what I want and so do all the members of EARTH. Regardless of what I can achieve or not. Surely your allowed to criticize ?

Well from his whole attitude of '' Im rich and dont care so steal my music'' well IMO thats rather arrogant as it is. So I would look to him before calling anyone else arrogant.

Acheiving richness is not genious in my book. Its how you go about it. Now if he was the FIRST of his kind then indeed I could call him unique and a genious in his area.....but what hes done has been done before and better than him.

Its all a matter of opinion really and everyone is entitled to have one.

However if anyone can call ''American badass'' a work of genious then we should all just give up now lol.

The last paragraph wasn't intended for you, it was at the posters who were mocking him. I think i miss-worded it which was bad on my part. Instead of criticize I was meant to say mocking.

Criticism is a part of life, and I would not stop anyone from doing it. We can improve and adapt from criticism. But then there is a point were it becomes mockery, like said people calling him a moron and an idiot.




Why the hell would anyone want to mock what they can't achieve themselves, what gives people the god given right to bash a successful man who has worked hard to get were he is now. It's insanity.

You can bash a piece of art all you like, but the fact is, is that if you cannot achieve that level of 'inspiration' or 'talent' then what gives you the right to say it isn't worthy. I mean sure, go ahead and state that you don't like it and state valid reasons why, but you cannot go around discarding the fact that the artist has talent.

I can go around flaming Jimmy Hendrix all day because I can't stand his music, but I would never discard the fact that he has talent. People are way too quick to make judgment to the point were it becomes arrogant and disrespectful
