The new song racked up approximately 500,000 views on YouTube in its first two days. In the video, Rock flies off on a “Rock-It” made of a giant middle finger as he shoots a gun, holding a bottle of whiskey in his other hand. The giant middle fingers fly into the stratosphere as Monster Truck frontman Jon Harvey sings, Soar like an eagle!

Rock released the track by sharing the news on Twitter, complete with a masked Statue of Liberty, saying, “NEW SINGLE AND VIDEO – 11.19.21”

“Don’t Tell Me How To Live” features a catchy rock riff and showcases the artist’s signature power-packed and punchy vocals. The content of the song has to do with the 50-year-old Detroit frontman (born Robert James Ritchie) declaring that he won’t be told how to live his life, presumably by doctors or activists.

The track showcases why Rock was so popular in the ‘90s and early 2000s. It also features the same sociopolitical stance Rock has taken publicly regarding liberalism and what he seems to perceive as illogical behavior.

About three months ago, Rock had to cancel shows at a country music bar called Billy Bob’s in Texas because some of his band members had been diagnosed with COVID-19.

At the time, Rock took to Twitter to make the announcement, saying, “I am pissed. Over half the band has fucking covid (not me), and before u shit for brains bloggers and media trolls run your mouths, many of them, like me, have been vaccinated.

“I was gonna come and rock the house anyway, play acoustic, or even just Juggle…. Deez Nutz!! – or at least try to entertain u good folks. But seriously, shit is way out of my hands on this one. I am beyond upset and you real ones know I would never cancel if I absolutely didn’t have to. For this, I am sorry.”

Rock’s newest single calls out “snowflakes,” adding, a “nation of pussies is our next generation.”

Years ago, we all thought it was a joke, see?
That every kid got a motherfucking trophy
But yo homie, here’s a situation
A nation of pussies is our next generation
And these minions and their agendas
Every opinion has a millennial offended
But this amendment one, it rings true
And if it don’t descend bitch, then see number two
Ain’t nothing new, right church, wrong pew
Get a clue or prove your fake news and views
Can all kick the bottom of my motherfucking shoe
I’m the last of a few still screaming fuck you

Ain’t nobody gonna tell me how to live
Ain’t nobody gonna tell me how to live
