Army National Guard commercial with Kid Rock, in theaters now

Kid Rock, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and The Army National Guard are invading your cinema previews this September and October. I found this out when Kristen and I went to see Tropic Thunder this past weekend at the Garden in Greenfield, Massachusetts. With lyrics like, “Freedom ain’t so free” and “citizen soldier”, and some dramatic guitar solos… plus the fact that we were seeing a Ben Stiller movie– I actually thought it was a joke at first. But it’s not.

Kid Rock wrote the new song, ‘Warrior’, for a national recruitment campaign directed by Academy Award winning director, James Mangold for The National Guard. The commercial will air at movie theaters across the U.S. in September and October. Lucky you,  moviegoer (and future recruit, I’m sure). To get you pumped up before basic training, why not dowload the song at NationalGuardWarrior.com

The song can basically be summed up this way: “America! Fuck Yeah!” but… here are the actual Kid Rock lyrics:

Yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!

So don’t tell me who’s wrong or right when liberty starts slipping away
And if you ain’t gonna fight, get out of the way
‘Cause freedom ain’t so free when you breathe red, white, and blue
I’m giving all of myself, how about you?

And they call me warrior
And they call me loyalty
And they call me ready to provide
relief and help, I’m wherever you need me to be

I’m an American warrior
Huh!
I’m an American warrior, citizen soldier
Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww yeah!

I’ll never leave another behind, I will never accept defeat
I’m a soldier in war, civilian in peace
‘Cause freedom ain’t so free when you breathe red, white, and blue
I’m giving all of myself, ’cause that’s what I do.

And they call me warrior
And they call me loyalty
And they call me ready to provide
relief and help, I’m wherever you need me to be

I’m an American warrior
Huh!
I’m an American warrior, citizen soldier
Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww yeah!
