“Ain’t No Rock And Roll” is the debut release from Nashville-based Baste Records, which brands itself as the “counter culture to cancel culture.”
The track features a super-group ensemble of fellow artists including former drummer for The Offspring Pete Parada. Ira Dean, who has previously worked with Staind lead singer and country artist Aaron Lewis, plays bass guitar on the new track accompanied by former Tom Petty and Joe Walsh guitarist Tom Bukovac and former member of Bob Seger’s band Jim “Moose” Brown playing keys.
The music video features images of legacy rock stars including Gene Simmons of KISS, Mick Jagger of The Rolling Stones, and Dave Grohl of Foo Fighters among others. The images of legacy acts are accompanied by previous headlines and quotes from the performers as they threw support behind government mandates, performed shows exclusively for the vaccinated, and shunned fans who questioned government mandates.
