    I think it's in reference to their "favorite song".

    "We were trying different things, and smoking funny things..." ...and just what might those be, Lewis?

    Its a nice catchy tune, even has a "Sweet Home Alabama" feel to it.

    Is that boat commonly called what is referred to as a "Chris-Craft" ?

    I like that song too. The music is kind of a combination of "Sweet Home Alabama" and "Werewolves of London."

    Thats what those songs are named. Had problems with the second one. Thinking the exact same thing here.

    You had to be growing up at a certain time in the States to get it right away, but the song applied in Washington as well.

    I can't believe people like this song. It's the most untalented hunk of shit to ever be piped over radio.

    First off, Kid Rock can't come up with an original riff, so he steals one under the guise of it being an "homage".

    Then, in the chorus of the song, he can't come up with a word that rhymes with "things", so he just says it twice.

    I swear to God if I hear that song one more time, I'm shooting someone in the face.

    I wonder if Autumn2009 was that non-innocent 17 year old girl that Kid Rock speaks of in the song.

    Interesting what I found at the bottom of the page on wikipedia.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sweet_Home_Alabama_(song)

    Kid Rock's 2007 song "All Summer Long" samples "Sweet Home Alabama" on the chorus and uses the guitar solo and piano outro; Billy Powell is featured on the track. "All Summer Long" also samples Warren Zevon's "Werewolves of London," which has similar chord progression to "Sweet Home Alabama." Since Kid Rock's release, the original song has charted in the UK charts at number 44 thanks to Kid Rock.

    I have a good ear.

    It's pretty distinctive, although I'd never realized that the two songs had such similarity until I heard "All Summer Long."

    ....and a good memory. I thought I heard "All Summer Long" from somewhere but I couldn't quite place it.
