A mad lib of a story that’s resurfaced during every recent election season goes like this: “[POLITICIAN] walks out onstage to [SONG], and [SONG’S PERFORMER/WRITERS, WHO DO NOT AT ALL AGREE WITH POLITICIAN’S OPINIONS] get very (understandably) upset about it!”

In an effort to put an end to this mad(lib)ness, Stephen Colbert teamed up with Jack Black to make a political pop anthem that’s free for anyone to use and, via its technique of just listing lots of pop culture artifacts instead of having lyrics with meaning, is generic enough not to offend anyone. Behold, "My Kind Of America.”
