“My Kind Of America” With Jack Black


>>Stephen: FOLKS, WE WERE
TALKING ABOUT THE DEBATE LAST NIGHT, TONIGHT, EARLIER IN THE
SHOW. AND ONE THING THAT I’VE NOTICED
ABOUT ALL THESE DIFFERENT CAMPAIGNS, EVERY TIME ONE OF THE
PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES COMES OUT TO MAKE AN APPEARANCE, THEY
ALWAYS HAVE TO COME OUT TO AN INSPIRING, ALL-AMERICAN SONG
THAT’S JUST ROCKING THE HOUSE BEFORE THEY STEP ON STAGE. BILL CLINTON BACK IN ’92 HAD
“DON’T STOP THINKIN’ ABOUT TOMORROW.” IN 2008 PRESIDENT OBAMA HAD
“SIGNED, SEALED, DELIVERED, I’M YOURS.” YOU CAN FIND THEM ALL ON THE
COMPILATION YOU CAN FIND THEM ALL ON THE
COMPILATION ALBUM “NOW, THAT’S ALBUM, NOW THAT’S WHAT I USED TO
ENJOY AS MUSIC.>>NEIL YOUNG CLAIMS BILLIONAIRE
DONALD TRUMP MISUSED ONE OF HIS SONGS TO KICK OFF THE
PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN.>>YOUNG’S LONGTIME MANAGER SAYS
DONALD TRUMP IS NOT AUTHORIZED TO USE ROCKIN’ IN THE FREE
WORLD.>>NEIL YOUNG IS A SUPPORTER OF
BERNIE STANDERS.>>Stephen, OF COURSE, NEIL
YOUNG SUPPORTS BERNIE STANDERS. THEY GO TO THE SAME
>>Stephen: OF COURSE NEIL YOUNG LACK OF BARBER. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
>>Stephen: MY, MY. THOSE ARE STRONG WORDS, THOUGH
IN TRUMP’S DEFENSE, IT IS ACCURATE. IF HE GETS ELECTED, IT IS THE
END OF THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
AND JUST– AND JUST OVER THE PAST WEEKEND, TRUMP GOT ON THE
WRONG SIDE OF AEROSMITH FRONTMAN AND ROOT VEGETABLE, STEVEN
TYLER– ( LAUGHTER )
WHO ISSUED A CEASE-AND-DESIST LETTER SAYING:
AND HE’S RIGHT. IF ANYTHING, “DREAM ON” IS
REALLY MORE APPROPRIATE FOR THE CHAFFEE CAMPAIGN. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
AND TRUMP ISN’T THE FIRST CANDIDATE TO GET ON THE WRONG
SIDE OF A MUSICIAN.>>IN THE 2008 ELECTION, JACKSON
BROWN, THE FOO FIGHTERS, AND JOHN MELLENCAMP ALL ASKED JOHN
McCAIN TO STOP USING THEIR MUSIC. AFTER SCOTT WALKER USED MUSIC
FROM THE DROPKICK MURPHYS, THEY TWEETED, WE LITERAL HE HATE YOU.>>HEART ASKED VICE PRESIDENTIAL
CANDIDATE SARAH PALIN TO REFRAIN FROM BLARING “BARRACUDA” AT HER
RALLIES.>>YEAH, I KIND OF AGREE. OF ALL THE HEART SONGS, WHY
WOULD PALIN PICK “BARRACUDA”? I’D HAVE THOUGHT SHE’D GO WITH
♪ CRAAAAZY ON YOU! LEMME GO CRAAZZY,
CRAAAZY ON YOUUUUUUU ♪ ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
HERE’S THE THING– WHEN A CANDIDATE HITS THE STAGE, THEY
WANT TO PUMP UP THE CROWD WITH AN AWESOME JAM, WHETHER OR NOT
THEY’VE LICENSED IT. BUT I ALSO UNDERSTAND WHERE THE
MUSICIANS ARE COMING FROM. AFTER ALL, INSISTING SOMEONE GET
PERMISSION BEFORE THEY DO SOMETHING THEY WANT? THAT’S ROCK AND ROLL. SO TO RESOLVE THIS CONFLICT,
I’VE WRITTEN MY OWN POP ANTHEM THAT’S FREE FOR ANY
CANDIDATE TO USE. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
IT’S GENERIC ENOUGH NOT TO OFFEND ANYONE, BUT GENERIC
ENOUGH TO BE LOVED BY EVERYONE. IT’S ABOUT A PLACE I CALL
“AMERICA.” AND IT GOES A LITTLE SOMETHING

  1. I do believe it's kind of absurd not to ask for permission to use an artist's song as campaign anthem.

    HOWEVER

    I also believe it is ridiculous not to grant permission because the artist does not want to get involved on republican politics. Specially because Steven Tyler has not declared political views altogether. Some of the reason is because entertainers suffer somewhat of a pressure to be liberals in order to be respected as artists by the majority of 'forward thinkers' that are the ones who buy they're stuff.

    I'm not saying is wrong. I'm just saying it's ridiculous not to authorize the use of one's song just you one can be not linked with Trump. Furtherelse Dream On that was written nearly 43 years before Trump even went on campaign

  2. Another funny thing is that often, the songs in question have lyrics that are inappropriate for the candidate and all they stand for. Back in the 80s, Ronald Reagan wanted to use Bruce Springsteen's song, "Born In The U.S.A." as his official campaign song (but 'The Boss' put the kibosh on that…like a boss). Ronnie apparently only heard the rousing chorus and ignored the rest of the song which is clearly about Vietnam veterans (and the 'Average Joe/Jane') getting screwed over by the government and society. That "rousing chorus" of "Born In The U.S.A." is meant to sound angry, not rousing.

    If a candidate or ad agency wishes to use a song, they should get permission AND read the stinkin' lyrics!

    About Palin using "Barracuda"; The titular "barracuda" is the bad guy being rebuked in that song….and it's about a nasty music producer who wanted to hawk the Wilson sisters as an incestuous couple. Thus, Palin's declaring herself a "freaky pervert with weird sibling incest fantasies".

    What's wrong with composing your own jingle? People are so lazy these days. Bring back jingles! You can still make them rock! They don't have to be "Ch-Ch-Ch-Chia Plop Plop Fizz Fizz Oh What Feeling On A Sesame-Seed Bun".

  3. I love how the band is just LOOSING IT while playing. None of them can keep from laughing their asses off.

    They work with Colbert every day. They STILL think he's funny.

    The Dancers are barely hanging in there too. They are busting up every time they think the camera's moved on.

  4. But what of supporters who do not like the song that their political representative chooses?
    I found out at 4:00 . Apparently you hit Pause or Mute and move to the next video
    And yes, this is very different in that the real politicos are advertising themselves for vast economic gain, with regard to neither the economic rights nor political preference of the original artist

  5. This is just more proof of the social economic divide. Most of these musicians do not come from wealthy families and it's no surprise they wouldn't want to help the rich devour what's left of our public programs. Conservatives are innately out of touch with modern culture and these are people who INVENT culture for a living. Nice try, toolbags lol

  6. Gather 'round, everybody, do you feel the feelin'?
    There's a rumblin' kinda whisper, universally appealin'
    It's steeped in our traditions, but totally brand new
    It's made for you and us and me, and even me and you

    It's…
    My kind of America
    It's Bernie's USA
    My kind of America
    And Bernie will make it that way

    Gonna make this country stronger 'til it's number one for damned sure
    Every state is extra great from Texas to New Hampshire
    Blue jeans and rock 'n' roll, trucks and apple pie
    Don't forget ol' Uncle FDR, why did he have to die?

    He died for…
    My kind of America
    It's Bernie's USA
    My kind of America
    And Bernie will make it that way

    Single moms and workin' dads, farmers and their hogs
    Pillow fights and hard-hat guys, veterans and dogs
    Roll up your shirt sleeves and get your game face on
    Just like Betsy Ross when she built the Pentagon

    Blue collar, white collar, Doogie Howser, silver dollar
    I Love Lucy, I Like Ike, marriage rights and Dick Van Dyke
    Quaker Oats, pig roasts, motor boats and root beer floats
    Moon shiners, title fights, football spikes, Bagel Bites

    Hip hop, mom and pop, Rosa Parks and truck stops
    Sunny D, the P.T.A., a honeymoon in Reno
    Pop-n-lock, crock pot, flip flops and halter tops
    Did I ever mention how much I love Latinos?

    My Kind of America
    It's Bernie all the way
    My kind of America
    And that's all I've got to say

    Except for…

    My kind of America
    It's the ultimate big tent
    My kind of America
    At the next campaign event

  7. That performance was so sexist. Using men as objects in little clothing.

    I don't want Colbert's "Kind of America", totally not voting for him next election.

  8. I was born in Texas… Here's something you can start bringing attention to, Puerto Rico wants to be a state, we voted on it not long ago, $70 billion in debt, yet no major world touring bands come here that are relevant. Latinos love you too, how bout filming/playing a show here? Tenacious D was fucking rad at Riot Fest in Denver!!! Thanks for your time.

  9. great song. Love Jack Black. What I find ironic is that Jack Black had an american flag sticking out of his back pocket. When I was a teen, that would have been very offensive to adults, because they thought the American flag was sacred, like the Bible. They didn't like people wearing it (except Uncle Sam), especially if they were going to sit on it. This was way before flag burnings, when wo0omn were burning their bras instead

  10. I cringe when I hear Barracuda now. Sarah Palin ruined that song for me. I bet Heart wants to kill her for that. I'd like to see Ann Wilson beat the shit out of her.

  11. They should really make an animated movie about these two or live action movie. either way the musical score will win an Oscar for sure.

  12. This song with "unprofessional " singers is probably one of the best songs I have heard since the radio. Plus the words are English and make sense. This song could be a hit based on most modern musical standards.

  13. ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚โฃโฃโฃ

  14. Jack Black is the only human on the planet who needs no context for me. Jack Black comes from behind stage and starts singing with Stephen Colbert? Sure, that's classic Jack Black.
