I don't think it's that bad.
I don't like the rap but Alice is as always great

I rated it good. Put it this way, it could have been a lot worse.
I actually float between average and good, but lean towards good more so there ya go.
Lyrics have a corny kind of upbeat and positive feel to them.

Considering there`s rap on there it`s not all that bad.

Terrible. This is to rock/rap what Whitney Houston's "One Moment in Time" was to pop.

Dreadful cliched nonsense. And the ram-it-down-your-throat morality and religion is very grating (all the more so for it being utterly sincere).

Maybe this type of rubbish goes down well in the US.

I actually like this song, although it would have been better rounding up Brutal Planet or Dragontown.

The rap part is ok, although I guess not many of Alice Cooper's fans knew the name of Tupac Shakur's mother before now.

I really like this song and the chorus rocks! It fit's on DD perfectly as a bonus track.

I am not a fan of rap so it is hard for me to be objective on this one. It probably is a decent song for fans of that type of music but frankly I don't think this needed to be added to the new album. In some ways, I think it takes away from Dirty Diamonds.

This is one of only two tracks that grabbed me on first listen so I don't think it detracts from the album at all.
I agree with MoD.

I don't like rap but Alice makes it OK. I voted 'good'.

I was really expecting to be the only person to vote this song "excellent." The rest of you should come forward and stand proud! :p
There may be a "rap" in the song, but it is definitely not a "rap song". I think Xhibit fans have more to be upset about than Alice fans.
Get Up! This is a very exciting song. I would say that it is a bit jarring, production wise, in comparison to the rest of the album, but I have to say that those who say it "ruins" the album are perhaps letting their pre-conceived ideas about "rap" make their decision for them?
Alice's growly vocal is very sexy. yum!

I am not a rap fan, but the more I listen, the more I like it.

crap - no need for it on the ablum. It's almost as bad as Antrax's Bring the Noise

Truth is I kinda like it. Not a fan of Rap either but it does have a cool kinda techno-funk thing goin on. Reminded me a little of "Hands of Death". The lyrics I thought were hokey but it was for the Olympics afterall. (Cameron loves it)

I'm not into Rap or Rap/Rock but this track after a few listens is tolerable. What I like about it is the chorus line: "If you don't stand for something, you will fall for anything". Again word play is always something that catches my attention and Alice is one the best when it comes that.

I like the addition of rap on this album. And the lyrics are very empowering. Saves DD from losing its intended feel IMO.

I love the idea of Alice doing a collaberation. If I ever could, I'd love to work with Alice. It's a good way to get your name out there. However, Alice and Xzibit just don't clash properly. No offense to X, but old school shock rock just doesn't mix well with rap. It was a good attempt, but compared to other collabs, this was far from par. Average, but no higher for me

Obviously I'm in a minority, but I thought the collaboration worked very well and should possibly be released as a single as its very radio friendly. :cool:
