Detroit rap-rocker Kid Rock has arrived with a brand new profanity-laced single and middle finger-filled music video, aptly titled "Don’t Tell Me How To Live."

Rock, whose previous release was a homophobic rant live from the stage at Smithville, TN's Fishlipz Bar and Grill, dropped the new track on November 19 featuring lyrics raging against the state of current American culture, Millenials, the news media, and more.

"F*** all you hoes," says Kid Rock before the guitars and drums kick in from his backing band, Canadian rockers Monster Truck. So, let's watch his new music video, shall we?

At the beginning of the clip, Rock lights up a cigarette indoors and in close proximity to electronics, perfectly setting the tone for the rest of our adventure.

Donning a big gold chain and white fur coat, Rock takes us into his world while railing against what he perceives is a culture dead set on stripping away his freedoms. One of which, mind you, is the freedom to travel to Mars strapped to a middle finger-shaped rocket while wielding a firearm. “Ain’t nobody gonna tell me how to live,” the song declares.

In response to whatever just happened above (it truly is a spectacle), 'Weird Al' took to his social media to let everyone know that the clip is all Kid Rock, not one of his own wacky parody videos as some of his fans apparently believed.

"To everybody that's congratulating me right now on my new Kid Rock parody video, let me clarify - that's not me," Yankovic explained in a tweet. "That's actually Kid Rock."
