All Summer Long by Kid Rock
"All Summer Long" is the title of a song recorded by Kid Rock. It was released in 2008 as the third single from his ninth studio album Rock N Roll Jesus. The song is based on Warren Zevon's "Werewolves of London" and Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Sweet Home Alabama"; the idea for the mashup was suggested by Mike E. Clark. The song was a number-one hit in eight countries across Europe and Australia, including the UK, and has even crossed over to country music radio, giving Kid Rock his first top-ten country hit. The song was the official theme song to WWE's pay-per view event, Backlash 2008. Also, the song was performed on the MTV music awards with rapper Lil Wayne in 2008. The music video for the song was shot in Nashville, Tennessee and features Kid Rock driving a Grand Craft Grand Sport boat out on the Old Hickory Lake, while two teenagers[who?] are shown enacting the song's lyrics.
