Danko Jones Blasts Monster Truck for Featuring on Kid Rock Song

After Canadian rock band Monster Truck teamed up with MAGA chud Kid Rock to release his anti-snowflake anthem "Don't Tell Me How to Live" last week, fellow Canuck music vet Danko Jones has taken to Twitter to call out the band for their "embarrassing" choice to partner with "piece of shit" Rock.

For a quick recap, the Rock video in question finds our Honky Tonk Steakhouse owner/COVID denier wearing a T-shirt that says "Social Media Sucks," while he compares himself to Bruce Springsteen and Brad Pitt, declaring that "a nation of pussies is our next generation." Kid also rips into — you guessed it — offended millennials, and manages to fill in just about every box on his Fox-News-talking-points bingo card.

That's all to say, it's unsurprising that Jones would take issue with the Hamilton, ON, band jumping in to collaborate on this mess, a move that Monster Truck seem to relish in on "Don't Tell Me How to Live," which arrived alongside a video of them donning fur coats, flipping off the camera and generally acting like major douchebags.

"Disappointed to hear of a certain band on a song with a certain musician who has been so public with his MAGA politics, including uttering the phrase 'Fuck Colin Kaepernick' during a live performance," wrote Jones. "It's tantamount to standing in solidarity with him. Gross."

He added: "And the video of them posing as rednecks in fur coats is FUCKING EMBARRASSING. Disappointed and embarrassed FOR that band."

The Kid Rock stans have apparently come out in full force against Jones following his callout, with the Toronto-area musician having to defend himself against a mob of "cluelessness" online. "It's astounding the amount of people who are salivating at the opportunity to cosplay as my overseer," he responded to one commenter.

Monster Truck have yet to respond to the callout publicly, but wrote on their own channels last Friday (November 19): "Thanks for all the opinions everyone, we're just gonna keep going and making our own decisions about our art and lives. Love you all."
