Back in January, Kid Rock brought us the most polarizing song of 2022 (I’m already putting my money on it), “We The People.”
Going back to his roots with that rap/rock sound that originally put him on the map, he sings about everything that he believes has caused division within this country, like President Joe Biden, Dr. Anthony Fauci, CNN, Facebook, Twitter, and so on and so on, all to the chorus of “Lets Go Brandon,” the commonly understood euphemism for “F*ck Joe Biden.”
But by the end, he calls for love and unity…
Ironic? Yeah, just a bit…
Here’s what he had to say about the song:
“A hard rock rap tune… 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.
I don’t mind taking a good punch, but I hit back motherfucker 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. 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.
We can believe differently, I think that’s one of things that makes this country great. I think the power that be want to divide us, and that’s no good… united we stand, divided we fall… the old cliché.”
That being said, we officially have a music video to go along with it.
The video portrays Kid Rock decked out in red, white, and blue, along with clips of President Joe Biden, Anthony Fauci, Kyle Rittenhouse, Donald Trump and more, as well as a number of anti-Biden Kid Rock fans.
