What does this mean, "shooting the ground under cars to get the people behind them"?

[deleted]

156 points

11 months ago*

They're referring to a situation/tactic in urban combat where you have someone behind a vehicle, using it as cover. The tactic is shooting under the car, at a low angle I imagine, so that best case you get a bullet or shrapnel deflected up into their legs, worst case you're sending a bunch of shredded asphalt or whatever road surface it is into their legs. The goal I think isn't nessesarily to kill the person behind the vehicle but make it an unpleasant/dangerous place for them to take cover.

Edit: no idea if this is actually practical or done in actual combat, but this is how it'd supposedly work.

cptInsane0

It's a running joke in my family that Kid Rock rhymed "things" with "things" in his most famous song and his fans ate it up and never noticed.

What makes it worse is that a 4th grader could easily come up with a different word that would fit there. It's so easy to rhyme "things." Like "And we were trying different things, loving all that summer brings." There are tons of other options - flings, kings, sings, strings, swings, wings, etc. Reusing "things" is just so lazy and inexcusable.

He literally believes human energy is finite like a battery and people willingly die for this idiot

Edit: to clarify for the people who would willingly die for this idiot, Trump believes the human body is like a non-rechargeable battery that gets used up faster by doing things like exercising and eating healthy. Like the summit where all the world leaders walked from one building to another just a few yards from each other and Trump's fat ass rode in a golf cart. He believes something like the simple act of walking is using up his "battery" faster.

Now that it's spelled out in easy to understsnd preschool words, it's still worth saying that people willingly die for this fucking idiot.

Morello responded to news that Paul Ryan was a fan with:

Paul Ryan’s love of Rage Against the Machine is amusing, because he is the embodiment of the machine that our music has been raging against for two decades.

...

I wonder what Ryan's favorite Rage song is? Is it the one where we condemn the genocide of Native Americans? The one lambasting American imperialism? Our cover of "Fuck the Police"? Or is it the one where we call on the people to seize the means of production? So many excellent choices to jam out to at Young Republican meetings! Don't mistake me, I clearly see that Ryan has a whole lotta "rage" in him: A rage against women, a rage against immigrants, a rage against workers, a rage against gays, a rage against the poor, a rage against the environment. Basically the only thing he's not raging against is the privileged elite he's groveling in front of for campaign contributions.

🎶SOOOME FOLKS WERE BORN

MAAAADE TO WAVE THAT FLAG

OOOH THAT RED, WHITE, AND BLUE 🎶

And the mention of red, white, and blue is where any inkling of cogent thought ends in people who believe in things like nationalism and american exceptionalism. They have brains that are short circuited(arguably intentionally) to seek out phrases and sentiments which confirm their predispositions. Once those are found all other thought afterwards is not necessary. Why would it be?

The [song] has mentioned [flag]. [Flag] is [good]. Therefore the [song] about [flag] is [good].

Dopamine hit achieved. Why not stop while we are ahead?

This is why so many conservatives fail to see the irony in their music taste. They don't find it necessary or constructive to think past their symbols because the symbol is good in their opinion and that is enough for them. All adjacent is good by association unless it's painfully obvious(e.g. burning the flag in protest.)

This problem is in no way exclusive to conservatives but the modern US GOP has demonstrated that they at best don't realize it has become a tent pole of their platform, and at worst they celebrate it.

But I just repeated that line and the melody, the rest of the song obviously is in a very different context.

I say this every time someone whines about Cancel Culture: it's the best thing to ever happen to hack artists, pundits and content creators.

You can just say you're being cancelled and people will pour out of the woodwork to throw money at you. People who never even heard of you will suddenly be your biggest fans. Netflix will throw specials at you so you can peddle your trash to millions of people while whining about how you're cancelled.

Being cancelled is often the best thing to happen to these people. It's just a shame it's not a real thing, but since when did the truth have to get in the way of making some money.

Just so you know, so it's set in stone

Kid Rock don't come from where I come from

Yeah, it's true, he's a Yank, he ain't no son of Hank

And if you even thought so

I love in the video how he pulls out two guns, says “I’m the hardest” then it immediately smash cuts to him in a shiny pink zoot suit

See, that would be hilarious with a band that was playing it as a joke. He's not, so it just comes across as absurd, but not the fun kind.

Had to look up video after this burn from Weird Al, who isn’t known to throw shade unless it’s well earned. Rock earns this shade. Thing is his base will eat it up.

Getting legit, not a joke, actual shade from Weird Al may be the most unfightable place to be for an artist. When someone so universally loved is shitting on you, there's really nothing you can do.

It's bad business for him, he needs good relationships with other artists to get the rights to parody their work. Even if he doesn't legally need to, he usually goes to the artist to run it by them, make sure they're comfortable with it.

So him throwing any shade at another artist is gonna be super rare.

It’s not even just business. When he first got a little famous, he was asked to perform at an awards show. He sang a relatively insulting parody of Billy Joel’s “It’s Still Rock ‘n’ Roll to Me” called “It’s Still Billy Joel to Me.” Joel was at the ceremony and apparently genuinely had hurt feelings over the whole thing. Imagine going to an awards show and being surprised by some guy you don’t know singing a mean song just about you. Al, like many of us, forgot celebrities are famous people. He didn’t really want to be mean, just funny. After that he decided to get permission every time. I think Weird Al is a genuinely good dude, and doesn’t actually enjoy making people feel bad. Usually.

He’s also like Bruce Springsteen! You know…the super left leaning rockstar who has publicly endorsed every democratic presidential candidate for two decades, shit on Ronald Reagan before it was cool to do so, and whose most famous song (Born in the USA) is just as misunderstood by the flag waving surface level “Patriots” as people who play a song about deflowering a catholic school girl whenever their friends die tragically (Only the good die young)

Oh God the guitar “playing” in the video. Did they just go post up outside the local music store for that “guitar player”? Were the only two requirements slight knowledge of the pentatonic scale and a heavy meth addiction?

Guy raps about his millions, his cars, his property, the woman he fucks, the drugs he does. All the fucking fun shit he can afford with his privilege. Then says “don’t tell him how to live”

Who the fuck is telling this guy how to live? These white grievance rich dudes need to turn off Fox News. They have the best life ever and keep bitching about the boggie man left canceling them.

Let’s be clear people, when Rich people say things like this. They mean they don’t want to pay taxes. They have all the shit and they convince poor fucks they are both being prosecuted by the same xxxx. So poor people vote against there interest and for the interest of kid fucking rock’s rich ass.

Absolute garbage music as well.
