Keep the Change: Hank Williams Jr. Calls Out ESPN, Fox News in "Revenge" Song!

by at . Comments

You didn't think Hank Williams Jr. was gonna go quietly, did you?

Calling out Fox News and ESPN after an interview with the former led to his firing by the latter last week, the crooner has cut a new song, "Keep the Change."

In the song, Williams sings "So Fox n' Friends wanna put me down ... Ask for my opinion ... Twist it all around ... Two can play that gotcha game you'll see."

Yes. That's what it was. Pure spin. Listen to the track here:

Hank also sings that the U.S. is "going down the drain" and says it's becoming "The United Socialist States of America." We're guessing he's not a Democrat.

After Hank ripped President Obama and House Speaker John Boehner golfing, likening it to Hitler and Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu playing a round, ESPN yanked his Monday Night Football theme, then fired Williams a few days later.

The singer defiantly bashed ESPN, then recorded his "revenge" song.

Written and recorded in less than a day, the track was posted on his website Monday, along with "Hank Jr. for President" T-shirts ... an absolute MUST HAVE.

It is a shame to see how racist people in this country are. This country would be a lot better if you people who hate blacks and other ethnic groups to be more vocal. Identify yourselves so that everyone knows exactly how you feel. What area you afraid of. I hope all of you that hate black people have a daughter that has ten children by a black man. Obama us not the enemy YOU PEOPLE ARE!

Same old, same old. I was watching The View the other day and one of the girls on there did not like the way Barbara Walters said the "N" word. Claimed black people said it different. They just don't get that they can make changes in the law but never in our hearts. Why can't Hank Williams say what is the truth and voice his political opinion for all to hear if all feel the same? Keep it up Hank. We don't need Fox and Friends. Hank is a tradition for years but Obama will be just a bad memory.

Hank Williams is acting like a spoiled child, insulting our great nation..calling us the United Socialist State of America...throwing around words like Hitler. It's clear he hated O'Bama, neverless people elected O'Bama..and some things you don't discuss "religion and politics" if you want to keep your song on ESPN!

ESPN lost it when they took monday night football, take it back to ABC on monday night. Put it back on standard TV, I have, and will not listen to MNF since moved to ESPN.
HOPE they lose the rights to MNF. They will become usa's laughing stock of sports football. BRING back ABC football on Monday night TV. VOTE out our illegal President, Any one will run our country better if they are born HERE.
