Fourteen ways of looking at a Big & Rich album

 

12) The last official song on the album,"8th of November," is about the Vietnam War. Fittingly, it's very long and not good.

13) Gretchen Wilson, Big & Rich's occasional rapper Cowboy Troy, and 4,000 strings join in for the "bonus" track, "Our America." Angling for a Super Bowl halftime gig, the team harmonizes zestfully on the national anthem, splicing in their own recitations of passages from the Constitution (U.S.), the "I Have a Dream" speech, and whatnot. It's actually even worse than that sounds. Convenient having the real clunkers at the end, though.

 

14) Favorite lyric: "If you want a bang in your yin yang/If you want a little zing in your zang zang/If you want a little ching in your chang chang, come along." That's precisely what I wanted! How'd y'all know?
