I still haven't forgiven the pilots who caused the plane to go down. They survived.

This song is quite sad because it's the last song played in the movie Freebird.

Shinedowns vocals might be a little better but I don't think that they really fit. I choose Lynyrd Skynyrd all the way

They played this at my dads funeral two weeks ago, he and I were close when I was little but as I grew we grew apart until about 8 months ago when I saw him and we had a great time then he told me that was dying of liver cancer and kidney failure. We hung out every day after that day. The last few days he was unresponsive so we didn't talk much and I was worried but these were the words he wanted to Say but couldnt

Kid rock cant hold a candle to them

Sounds like Skynyrd to me-smjordan3 4 - Kid Rock is a fair spin-off and Shinedown are soul counterfeite r s with cheap a** pyro smoke and mirrors. Nothing simple about that but the fraud of parading and capitalizing on Simple Man as their own.
