SKIP: Bret Michaels, "Custom Built" [VIDEO]

Bret Michaels has not had a good year. The dude has had to endure brain hemorrhages, mini-strokes, and Donald Trump. Who doesn't want him to catch a break with a big new hit album? Bret Michaels is a survivor, but it's hard to believe that "Custom Built" will last despite pulling out all the big mainstream rock stops. He slides up to Miley Cyrus (it's hard to know who's using who) for a big, mid-tempo power ballad. Then he digs up a countrified Poison do-over of "Every Rose Has Its Thorn" and sings all sorts songs about late '80s heroes caught in dead-end towns. "Custom Built" is tailor-made for nostalgia, but you can't go home again. And why would you, really?

WATCH Bret Michaels and Miley Cyrus perform "Every Rose Has Its Thorn" live.
