I have never been a fan of Southern rock, and the use of the Confederate flag gives me a double bad feeling in times where even the normal Stars and Stripes stand for new-world-ordering everything in their directions. Molly Hatchet, who have been around for more than 25 years, have all the ingredients that a true Southern band needs: lots of loud guitars, a drenched whiskey voice, and lyrics that are so full of extreme jingoism, primitive sexism and total ignorance that it makes my guts churn.

Even if you can live with the music (not that I can), you should beware of the lyrical message you get there. OK, maybe you're not supposed to take Molly Hatchet seriously, as they represent a breed of Americans you find frequently in small town redneck towns, but that doesn't mean that we have to encourage this kind of behaviour.

By the way, this is a double live CD, nearly two hours long, but I give up already halfway through the second disc, while doing the rare action of giving no points at all.
