Kid Rock is one of the very few rappers who are not taken as seriously as they want to be. Rock recently released his new single “Don’t Tell Me How To Live.” The 50-year old rapper compared himself to the likes of James Dean and David Lee Roth, though that’s not even the worst of it.

Rock (real name Robert Richie) rapped about “snowflakes” and “offended millennials” in the video which is filled with a lot of imagery that the “offended millennials” might refer to as cringe. He raps:

You’ll never tell me sh-t, you’ll never flip my script
Because I’m more outrageous than the Vegas strip

The video features Rock rapping in a church while several guns fire off, along with middle-finger shaped rockets sent off towards Mars. It’s something that one would expect from a Weird Al Yankovic parody, except it was not ironic at all.

Kid Rock name dropped a lot of great artists from the industry, such as Bruce Springsteen and David Lee Roth. However, it was the comparison with Brad Pitt that ticked off his fans the most.

I’m like Reverend Run or David Lee Roth / Like [Bruce] Springsteen, bitch, I’m the motherf-ckin’ boss / James Dean shit, I’m more like Brad Pitt / A little less pretty, but I slang more d-ck.

One fan said on Twitter that there can be nothing funnier than Kid Rock comparing himself to Brad Pitt. Another user said that Kid Rock comparing himself to all these great artists makes them want to make him get medical treatment. Even Weird Al Yankovic issued a statement saying that he wasn’t behind the new Kid Rock video at all.
