Monday Night Smack Down (Tuesday Edition)!

Tonight's Smack Down is between the great Warren Zevon and the not so great Kid Rock.

It has long been a petpeeve of mine when struggling (or not) artists take a slightly lesser known classic and whore it out just to make a dime. Take Kid Rock's recent taste of success with "All Summer Long". By sampling Zevon's hit "Werewolves of London" and poorly referencing Lynyrd Skynyrd's timeless "Sweet Home Alabama", Kid earns his place as a two time offender. Perhaps someone's bank account needs a little beefing up. It seems that pride wasn't the only thing Mr. Rock lost in his divorce from Pammy.

But don't let me decide for you!! Take a gander at the clips and decide for yourself. I will award KR a few points for the righteous party boat featured 1:06 in (I give credit where credit's due) but Lynyrd Skynyrd takes the ultimate prize with the sexy crowd footage ;)
