that ain't my America

This is an excerpt from Billboard magazine's article on Skynyrd's induction into the Rock Hall of Fame:

"Skynyrd tempered its rock'n'roll fire with insightful ballads and social consciousness. The band's debut album, "(pronounced leh-nerd skin-nerd)" in 1973, not only boasted sizzling rockers like "Gimme Three Steps," but also keening ballads in "Tuesday's Gone" and the timeless anthem "Freebird." Lyricist Van Zant addressed such issues as gun control, social discrimination and environmentalism before they were fashionable."

Now I remember Sara stating that the fans on this board appreciated and respected both the old and the new Skynyrd, but while reading all these conspiracy theories and ridiculous Ted Nugent quotes I'm still having a hard time finding any kind of respect for Ronnie Van Zants concerns about gun control, social discrimination and environmentalism. Please prove me wrong.

Gods and Guns a great album, but "that aint my america" definitly my least favorite song, comes off as cheesy "i wanna light up underneath a no smoking sign",

Agree with you on that one! I think I made my point loud and clear long ago! haha

But yes the entire CD is awsome and "That Ain't my America" is anything but cheesy! Its an awsome song that speaks out against all of the BS in this country. But I've made myself clear before so if ya wanna see what I have to say look back in the post.

To quote a Skynyrd song
"We never say goodbye, we only say so long, Mad Hatter's movin on." I'll be on other threads.

so long!
