I remember how incensed I was when I first heard this song. I'd never heard more flagrant pandering to the target demographic. (Until I heard Train.)

I know I should five it for its level of evil...but no. No, it deserves that one star sooooo bad.
Also, this wasn't even really a band. It was just a production vehicle. The bald guy here is the songwriter/producer who wrote the majority of that radio-friendly Santana album that won a grammy. So yeah, its evil incarnate.
I had the same internal struggle and compromised, deciding it was too shitty for either 1 - 3 stars, but not shitty enough for 5.
It's rock by focus group.

I seriously cannot wait until ten years or so from now when American Express or Chevy or Starbucks or whoever uses the chorus of this song in their big deal ad campaign in a completely unironic fashion.
(also, this song is hilariously awesome. it's utterly meaningless drivel and then you get THE ballsiest boast in any pop song ever. HEY A BUNCH OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE SOLD A BILLION TIMES MORE RECORDS THAN ME - I WILL FUCK YOU UP. seriously?)
Marilyn Manson said something along the lines of
"I called this guy up when I first heard this song. I told him to bring it on."
