God bless America. America -- right or wrong -- when it is right, we should all strive to keep it right, and when it's wrong, we should all work to set it right. Semper fidelis.

or, put another way: just a load of overly-patriotic garbage playing to the simple minded types who chant "u-s-a!" at every opportunity. it'll probably go platinum within a month.

I can't tell if it's a parody or if it is real.

Proceeds from sales of the CD and DVD go to some charitable donations. The guy's heart is there, and I applaud that, but look at the video concept... A straight laced, military type haircut firefighter dies in the line of duty, grows a mullet, jeans with holes, a bandana around his knee, and becomes an Angel with some of the worst video effects I've seen since Godzilla.

I think it can best be labeled as American Sliced...

Sorry but I couldn't watch it all, so I never did see if there was a punchline. I was about to vomit after the first couple of bars.

Incredible!

As in; beyond belief or understanding. I kept waiting for the punchline, but it never came, this mullet was serious.

Yikes! This has got to be the best bit of insanely cheesy gratuitous fromage I’ve seen since “Let the Eagle Soar” by John Ashcroft.

Proof that the species is doomed. ;)

I tell you, these two videos (The real one, and the mocking one) along with the Ultimate Warrior Legal Threat ( http://www.somethingawful.com/articles.php?a=2790 ) made Monday one of the most joyful days to live.

two things: (the vid is horrible, Admittedly)
1. It's like Gowan became a Canadian x-pat and moved to california.

2. If you took out the horrible singing/lyrical content (and the acoustic guitar) the music /arrangement would sound just like Yes from the early 90's. That I find interesting in the way that that particular style for them was a dismal flop- Maybe Jon Anderson could have put some Pro Amnesty Itl. lyrics over top and it would have done better, or pro monarchy fro that matter...
