Playboy: "You went to Iraq and played for the troops, what was that like?"
Kid Rock: It was all great, very rewarding, one of the best experiences of my life. Flying into Baghdad International Airport and walking through this crowd of 5,000 people and everyone's just screaming --it's the biggest accolade you can get, a bigger scream than we could ever hear in the largest arena in the United States. Think of when you're watching a movie and someone's acting like he's starving. You can't really appreciate it because you're sitting there with a big fucking popcorn and Coke in your hand. You just can't appreciate it enough until you go there and see how these young kids are and how hot and shitty it is, with sand and garbage blowing all over. It's the worst possible fucking place you could be on the face of the earth. Why can't we have a war in Tahiti?"
