All Summer Long with the Werewolves of London in Sweet Home Alabama

I’m ashamed to admit it, but yes, I do enjoy the new single by Kid Rock, All Summer Long. The first few times it came on mix 93.1, I thought it was Werewolves of London by Warren Zevon. Perhaps this is because it contains a sample from that song that runs throughout. Not only that, but the chorus is all about singing Lynyrd Skynyrd’s Sweet Home Alabama. AND, I swear that’s Bob Seger singing background vocals. Although maybe it’s just someone meant to sound like him. I couldn’t find a definitive answer on that when I googled the hell out of it. And I think my favorite line is about “trying different things and smoking funny things“. Oh, the good old days.

So, a song ABOUT another song (Sweet Home Alabama), with Bob Seger (possibly) singing background over a Werewolves of London sample? It doesn’t get much more songspeak than that, my friends.

  1. “We didn’t have no internet…” is probably my favorite line.

    I think you might be onto something with the notion that Bob Seger sang backup. Both of them are Detroit men, after all.

  2. Funny i was just googling myself to find out who sings backup on that song…i was guessing Travis Tritt, but your guess sounds good, with the Detroit angle.

  3. Oh man… seriously people? This has got to be one of the worst songs ever recorded… i really dont know what to say i just hope it goes away soon… its starting to kinda piss me off lol…
