I must admit that recent listening has proven "Bawitdaba" to be extremely effective for what it is. That "MY NAME IS KIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIID...KID R O C K!" intro is just glorious, fist-bumping, blood-pumping fury, and it is magnificent.

I have a sort of begrudging admiration for Kid Rock's persona, especially here. His "trailer park pimp" aesthetic reminds me a bit of Die Antwoord's Zef - ignoring wealth and "fancy" things, and instead choosing to embrace the sort of lowlife panache of your poverty, making it into its own fashion and style.

I mean, come on, that video is just perfect. Kid Rock rapping in a trailer park as dirtbikes fly overhead?

Glorious. Just glorious.

Its like the real band never showed up for the video, so they just got their film school interns to sing karaoke. I can't overemphasize how much their lack of style or presense gets on my nerves. This shouldn't be allowed.

Linkin Park for not being Kid Rock I guess. This is like picking between AIDS and rectal cancer.

"Bawitdaba" is terrible. I don't mind "Papercut". It's one of the few Linkin Park songs I can say that about. I like the chorus.

I love Chester's mohawk. He looks like a lil dinosaur in tartan pants. Vote goes to Papercut.

Sorry Ruddo, Bawitdaba is definitely better than Africa.

Easy vote here.

Both of these songs are dumb. While the Kid Rock song is dumber, I voted for it cause it seems to do well with projecting its mindless fun.

One thing that really kills this genre of music for me is the lyrics -- an endless barrage of vague constructs describing the singer's own pain:

Why does it feel like night today?
Something in the air's not right today
Why am I so uptight today?
Paranoia's all I got left
I don't know what stressed me first
Or how the pressure was fed
But I know just what it feels like
To have a voice in the back of my head
Like a face that I hold inside
A face that awakes when I close my eyes
A face watches every time I lie
A face that laughs every time I fall
(It watches everything)
So I know now when it's time to sink or swim
That the face inside is hearing me
Right beneath my skin


The language is just so dull and is so repetitive from song to song. It's extremely tedious to me.

Kid Rock is an exception to this within this genre. "Bawitdaba" has a DB Cooper reference in it. Easy vote for the Kid -- he remains something of an anomaly among this group of musicians for me.
