While the first single, "The Shame of Life," was co-written by Kid Rock (a fact weird in and of itself), the only convincing evidence of his input is the chorus ("I love the girls and the money and the shame of life") and the laid-back hip-hop beats.

All the while, frontman Gibby Haynes' rants about the clash of "normal people" and "weirdos."
