Rascal Flatts, “Stand”

Take the most generic girl-power Jo Dee Messina anthem – not a good one, like “Bring On the Rain”, but one of those interchangable ones like “Not Goin’ Down” or “That’s the Way”. Remove all remaining charm and originality from the lyric, drain all life and energy from the production, and add the most pathetically wimpy lead vocal imaginable, and you have this single.

How can we be encouraged to stand up by a man who sings like he pees sitting down?
