‘MERICA- You just gotta love Kid Rock because, as he says, he doesn’t give a f*ck. That is precisely what he told Fox News host Tucker Carlson, in a segment of an interview scheduled to air Monday night on Tucker Carlson Tonight¸ BizPacReview reported.
In the interview, Carlson asked Kid Rock why he hasn’t been “canceled,” especially since he is a Trump supporter.
“Why haven’t you been canceled?” Carlson asked. “Like people aren’t allowed to say what they think you are.”
Kid Rock, 51 responded, “I am uncancellable, because I don’t give a f*ck.”
The rocker then went on to explain that he is not affiliated with any woke corporations.
“There’s nobody I’m beholden to, no record companies, no corporate interests, no nothing,” he said. “You can’t cancel me. I love it when they try,” he continued.
A preview of the interview was aired over the weekend on Fox & Friends Weekend, after which the hosts noted the similarity between Kid Rock and former President Donald Trump, who likewise didn’t have much of a filter and that realism made him attractive to a significant portion of middle America.
“That’s the attitude that Donald Trump had and has,” said co-host Pete Hegseth, speaking about Trump’s “unapologetic and bold” personality.
“But he got canceled,” interjected co-host Rachel Campos-Duffy, speaking to Trump’s election “loss” in 2020, although they group agreed the former president still maintains a powerful, influential voice despite the fact he was canceled by tech tyrants such as Twitter and Facebook.
“[Trump] was willing to say what so many of us were thinking, and he didn’t care about the repercussions,” Campos-Duffy said.
“When a billionaire from New York City can get a farmer in Iowa or a mechanic in Georgia to go, ‘you know, I really identify with him.’ It’s not just because of the life he lives, it’s that part specifically—he’s just willing to say what he thinks.”
This past January, Kid Rock went on his Instagram page and told his “haters” that ‘I’m unf*cking cancellable. Suck on that!”
It was during the four-minute video that Kid Rock promised to avoid performing at any venue during his multi-city tour, coined the Bad Reputation Tour, that imposes any mandates connected to COVID-19.

He continued, offering to refund tickets to anyone who had bought tickets for a venue that required proof of vaccination as a condition of entry “because I won’t be showing up either.” He said at the time that he had already canceled potential concerts in cities due to mandates in effect in those locations.

DETROIT, MI – Outspoken rocker Kid Rock does not hold back in his new track, “We the People,” calling out President Biden, Anthony Fauci, mainstream media, and social media.
The politically charged 4-minute single was released on Monday, January 24, and, according to the Daily Caller, has garnered nearly 1 million views on YouTube. At this writing, YouTube shows 61,000 likes for the track, and comments are turned off.
Outkick reports that the song “by Tuesday afternoon had already reached No. 1 on the US iTunes store’s all-genre sales chart.”
Kid Rock has some choice expletives for NIAD director and Joe Biden’s chief medical advisor Anthony Fauci, beginning his song with:
“We the people in all we do
Reserve the right to scream ‘Fuck you’
Wear your mask, take your pills
Now a whole generation’s mentally ill
(Hey yeah) man, fuck Fauci
He continues by taking a stab at the media’s “embrace” of Biden policies compared to their response to former president Trump, saying:
“But COVID’s near, it’s coming to town
We gotta act quick, shut our borders down
Joe Biden does, the media embraces
Big Don does it and they call him racist.”
The chorus leaves no doubt as to the rock icon’s feelings toward the president, as he repeats “Let’s go Brandon,” which of course is well-known code for “Fuck Joe Biden”:
“We the people (ooh, let’s go Brandon)
We the people (ooh, let’s go Brandon)
We the people (ooh, let’s go Brandon)
We the people.”
Another hit, this time at the Biden economy, comes when he says:
“Inflation’s up, like the minimum wage
So it’s all the same, it ain’t a damn thing changed.”

Kid Rock also turns his attention to social media in today’s political climate, presumably taking aim at the rampant censorship of ideas that do not go along with progressivism. He also gives the finger to mainstream media:
“Fuck Facebook, fuck Twitter too
And the mainstream media, fuck you too, too, too.”
Kid Rock continues by naming media outlets:
“Fuck CNN, fuck TMZ
And you social media trolls, y’all can suck on deez (deez)
Deez nuts, that’s what’s up.”
However, the song is not all about giving a virtual finger to various entities. Kid Rock also puts out a call for for “love and unity,” saying:
“But we gotta keep fighting for the right to be free
And every human being doesn’t have to agree
We all bleed red, brother, listen to me
It’s time for love and unity.”

In the same vein, he continues:
“If you down with love and wanna make things better
All we gotta do is just come together
Weather the storm, and take my hand
Then follow my lead to the promised land
‘Cause we the people, we gotta unite
To follow that good time guiding light
Climb aboard this love boat
And rock that bitch up and down the coast….
“Standing up, and standing tall
‘Cause it’s all for one and it’s one for all
All, all, all
We the people (ooh)
We the people”
The song ends with a repeated chant of “Let’s go Brandon.”
51-year-old Kid Rock, born Robert Ritchie, is a well-known supporter of former President Donald Trump. According to Breitbart, he performed at a Michigan campaign event for Trump in September 2020 despite a nagging and painful neck injury, telling his followers on social media:
“That is how important getting POTUS re-elected is too [sic] me.”

In a Facebook video announcing his upcoming Bad Reputation tour, which will include the likes of Grand Funk Railroad and Foreigner, Kid Rock spoke of the release of “We the People,” saying:
“The last one [of recent releases] is kind of one of those hard rock rap tunes that… well, you know all the craziness going on in our world the last several years with politics and the polarization and watching where this country’s headed, and social justice.
“You know, just constantly from being a Trump fan, you know, just attacked in the media everywhere, day in and day out.”
The rocker continued:
“Well, you know, I don’t mind taking a good punch, but I hit back, motherfucker, and I hit hard.
“And I think ‘We the People’ gets into that.”
