I started it two and a half years ago. It was seeing [Russian leader]
Vladimir Putin in those pictures with his shirt off. Like what the hell does he
want? He's the most powerful man in the world – and he wants to be Tom Cruise,
Brad Pitt. The song is less critical than I thought it would be, although the
tone gets menacing at the end. If it's just a joke, it's worth something to me.
It's worth less unless there's something else. But I can't tell people what to
get from a song. When I'm doing "Rednecks" for a crowd and they're
like "We're rednecks, yeah!", that bothers me. It's closer to home.
