This week we “watch lots of crotch” and paint this episode white as we take on Kid Rock’s eerily prescient, “Cowboy,” which foreshadows Kid Rock’s turn toward bro country and hick hop, and unfortunately inspired many others to do the same.
Also: A video probably directed by McG, the best side-effect of Kid Rock’s career, and of course his “prank” senate run.
This week the podcast gets p o l i t i c a l as we take on a truly awful, literally genocidal, stand-for-the-anthem anthem, "Salute the Brave" by hick-hop artist Hosier and Facebook vlogger Adam Calhoun.
Make sure to subscribe to our brand new podcast, MINION DEATH CULT, a show about the deranged politics of the internet, and partly inspired by this episode.
A video with 2.5 million views, "Salute the Brave" has lyrics about killing liberals, carpet-bombing Afghanistan, and "screaming at America." The music video has plenty of salutes, guns, and cucked protesters.
