Kid Rock made an epic return to the music scene with the release of a new explicit hard rock music video that rages against millennial “snowflakes.”
“F*** all you hoes,” the 50-year-old musician yelled at the beginning of the song featuring Monster Truck. “Detroit ’till I die motherf***ers.”
He announced his new single and video “Don’t Tell Me How to Live” on Twitter a day prior to its Friday release with a cover photo featuring the Statue of Liberty wearing a face diaper.

The self-taught musician calls out the coddling of the next generation because “every kid got a motherf****ing trophy,” that turned them into a “nation of p***ies.”
His lyrical rant prompted one person to aptly note, “He’s definitely not a liberal.”
The song also takes on Kid Rock’s critics with a fiery musical opposition, telling them to “kiss my a**” and “suck a d*** sideways.”
“My way or the highway, listen up / Ain’t nothing changed here, I still don’t give a f***,” he belts out. “So what the f***’s up with all the backlash / You snowflakes, here’s a newsflash.”
“Ain’t nobody gonna tell me how to live,” Monster Truck’s lead singer Jon Harvey sings in the chorus.

The video features Robert James Ritchie, otherwise known as Kid Rock, riding a giant middle finger into space while clutching a bottle of booze and a gun.
The song evoked emotional responses in both support and opposition on social media.
I feel like I just smoked 2 packs of Marlboro reds after watching this.

Got to say this is truly an American song. Pro amendments, fuck the gov and media, and bring back competition.

He fucking gets it. That’s it. He gets it. Also, love the line about the participation trophies, lmfao. Was saying that my whole life, that shit started when I was a kid and I would always decline the trophy because I didn’t earn it.

In June, Kid Rock was criticized for using a gay slur at a bar in Tennessee after he shouted to the crowd about recording him on their cell phones.
“F**k your iPhones. You can post this! You can post this d*ck right now! You f**king fa**ots with your phones,” he yelled to the crowd.
