What are you smoking?
“Sweet home Alabama” has a few sound-a-likes, most notably “Werewolves of London” by Warren Zevon, which in turn is ripped off by Kid Rock’s “All Summer Long” which ironically quotes “Sweet Home Alabama” in the lyrics.
not ripped off “sampled” both alabama guitar riff and werewolves piano. still a shit song kid rock
Joe – on the money! Why waste precious storage and carbon credits to compare two simplistic rock turds like these.
I do agree with Lisa, and must inform señor Doug: irony has nothing to do with Kid Rock’s lack of invention. Most of the song is sung on two notes.
More curious, Sweet Home Alabama was a three chord reply to Neil Young’s Southern Man, a real song with melody, harmonic structure and chord changes and mostly – FEELING!
Friend just gave me this one…personally I don’t know about it but they swear it fits this
Have a listen to the chorus of “Steve McQueen” by Sheryl Crow – even the “Wooh Wooh” bits are there…
