The 50-year-old musician released the song on Friday after teasing it online on Thursday.
“F— all you hoes,” he shouts as the song begins. “Detroit ’till I die motherf—ers.”
It takes aim at those who have criticized him, telling those who disagree with him to “kiss my a–” and “suck a d— sideways.”
“My way or the highway, listen up / Ain’t nothing changed here, I still don’t give a f—,” he sings. “So what the f—‘s up with all the backlash / You snowflakes, here’s a newsflash.”
He adds: “Ain’t nobody gonna tell me how to live.”
He blames “every kid [getting] a motherf—ing trophy” for turning the next generation into a “nation of p—ies” and jabs millennials for often being “offended.”

He posted an image of the Statue of Liberty wearing a face mask in his teaser as well as a photo on Twitter of himself holding up two middle fingers while at a studio.
“Remember this? S–t gets real this Friday Nov. 19th,” he captioned the black and white photo.
Kid Rock’s newest single comes after the rocker revealed his plans to release a 50-track album, although the plans have since been derailed due to the pandemic. The album would include 10 hip-hop tracks, 10 country tracks, 10 rock tracks and 20 unreleased songs, according to the Detroit Free Press.
