Hank Williams Jr. wrote a new song about ESPN and Fox
NFL

Are you ready for some vengeance? Hank Williams Jr. strikes back

10/10/11 in NFL   |   metsfan710   |   402 respect

Hank Williams Jr. is releasing a new song entitled "I'll Keep My ...," in which he calls out ESPN and Fox News after his remarks about President Barack Obama and Adolf Hitler on "Fox and Friends" led to his dismissal from the "Monday Night Football" theme song after 23 years.

The country music singer wrote the song on Friday and is scheduled to release it late Monday or early Tuesday. In its third verse, he takes issue with how Fox took his words out of context: "So Fox 'n Friends wanna put me down/Ask for my opinion/Twist it all around."

If it didn't mean having to listen to Hank Williams Jr. speak about anything other than music or Alabama football, I'd be interested to hear how he thinks Fox twisted his opinion. After all, there are only so many ways to take the quote: "It'd be like Hitler playing golf with Netanyahu."

Williams calls the U.S. the "United Socialist States of America" earlier in the song. He finishes the third verse with a subtlety you'd expect from the man who wrote "Why Can't We All Just Get a Long Neck?" The song ends with the suggestive jab, "Well two can play that gotcha game you'll see."

During an appearance on "The View" last week, Williams found a measure of support from Whoopi Goldberg. This led to him suggesting a possible Whoopi/Hank presidential ticket in the future. Let's pray that this theoretical campaign would never take them to the golf course. That would be like ... never mind.

 Monday night football has always been about the game, not about his stupid song, He exercised his freedom of speech and lost a good gig behind it, and now he's bitter, so his next step is to write another stupid song so other idiots like he him can go out and buy it to put more money in his pocket. In a year he will be so forgotten about

The right of "Freedom of Speech" is often misinterpreted. A company can fire you or sever your contract for saying something they don't like; they have that right. Freedom of Speech protects us from the government for saying stuff. Freedom of Speech protects Hank Williams Jr. from being locked up for insulting the POTUS(even if it was taken out of context and blown out of proportion).

Hank knows better than that after what happen to the Dixie Chicks. He should've just left out the Hitler  remark. and all would've been fine.

Hank Jr is being Hank Jr. He's said a thing as friends would say to each other. This is how the good ol' boys roll. Take it over leave it. By the way great comparison. So sue me.

I looked for a football facepalm but couldn't find much other than Mike Ditka throwing one up that looked more like a salute. Nice try, perbet.

Now if NBC would just do something with the SNF Faith Hill intro...I'm getting sick of that one too.

Hank's a jackass. He had a great gig, and screwed it up with some nonsense.

ESPN had said they were suspending his open for the show for one week, but he got his panties in a bunch and toild them that he wanted out.

He's a jackass.

I love Hank.  He's the man.  Those dumb asses at ESPN should have never pulled him.

Actually, the song is titled Keep The Change and you can download it for free from his website (if you're not afraid of infecting your computer with the Dumbass Virus).  It's based upon another song of the same title which means, like the rest of his career, Hank Jr was once again, unoriginal...
