When you're as famous and legendary as Hank Williams Jr., you know the term  "imitation is the nicest form of flattery" very well, but sometimes, enough is enough!

On the 1987 TNN special Hank Williams Jr. And Friends, the country legend called out people who were posing as him with a slowed down, bluesy version of his song "My Name Is Bocephus".

"You know ladies and gentlemen I have a problem of lot of imposters running around these United States from time to time if you read the papers," he told the cheering crowd. "So I had to think about it and write a song about that situation."

The audience knew exactly what song was coming next, and they went crazy for it! Hank Jr. called out people who are trying to be him by wearing a hat, glasses and a sporting a beard, but says, they aren't really Hank Jr. because "they ain't got no scars."

If his hard-hitting message doesn't get you tapping your toe, the insane musical break will. Bocephus delivered a face melting guitar solo and his piano player went completely ballistic on the keys - in a good way! His saxophone player was top notch and the music sounded like it came straight from an old school rhythm and blues record! 

Watch the soulful and incredible performance below.
