Sheer Ego - Kid Rock
Kid Rock was the opener at this Rolling Stones show I attended in 2015. The souvenir booths had items from both Kid Rock and of course, the Stones. Kid Rock's souvenirs were just clothing items. There were hats simply saying "American Badass". OK, you say - no big deal. There were T-shirts with Rock's face on the front. Both the T-shirt and a jacket had this phrase from one of this song titles on the back: YOU'VE NEVER MET ANOTHER MOTHER FUCKER LIKE ME. Can you imagine the jokes that could draw from other people? LOL. OK, Kid. You said it, not me. If you say you're a motherfucker, then a motherfucker is what you are! YOU said that, not me!
