Who knew the Kid could be, everything from ol' George Jones to Jay Z?
I don't like some music too.
Not a fan, but I don't really judge people who like him. I don't see anything wrong with people going to see him when he plays Comerica or any other Michigan venues. It seems like people have a good time seeing him perform. Good for them.
One thing that did make me lose any admiration for him was his episode asking fans not to bring phones to the concert so that the "surprise" factor of the shows was still in place. Hey Kid, how about not having a 100% staged and 100% choreographed rock concert? Then you won't have to worry about "surprises" being ruined for your fans. That was pretty weak.
At the end of the day, he reps the state, does some stuff for the community, and remembers where he comes from. I don't like his music and I don't like his politics, but there is more to a person than political views and their talent or lack of talent at an art form.

I went to a Kid Rock concert in Dallas Texas. We not only saw a woman that was 9 months preggo smoking, but there was a large display of rebel flags throughout the crowd. Things ended up getting so rowdy and rough with lots of pushing and shoving from douchebags looking to start a fight that I grabbed my wife and left.
Confederate flags in Texas... at a shitty rock concert? Say whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat?
His music is OK, basically hit or miss. I'm not a huge fan myself. However, the guy is a great entertainer and his shows are actually really good.
On a personal level he is a really good guy; very humble, very appreciative of his fans, and he does a lot for the community and much of it is not publicized.
He's a completely talentless hack but I'll give him credit in that he found an audience.
Before he was big he was playing to half full crowds at Small Planet and Rick's. Nobody seemed to care....He was almost a joke. Once he blew up though he did not look back at all.
I was over him after Devil Without A Cause. Great energy on his first record. Maybe even the second. But now he's just overrated. Done already!
I was there last night. Received two free tickets. Not fan of his newer stuff, although I did like Devil without a cause. I think he is trying to meld his sound into a southern rock feel. Yes, there were many WT people there. I also noted a few WT cuties and that's not all bad. The video commercial for Jim Beam and Harley Davidson in the middle of the show kind of sucked He is a good live performer and knows how to put on a good show. His voice is weak, but has 100 times the talent of a Justin Beeber. Overall I enjoyed the show. Maybe its because I don't walk around with a dildo up my ass that I can appreciate it for what it is.
Cocky was a great album!
I went to both of his shows at Comerica and had a really good time. I never listen to his music really otherwise, but his shows in downtown Detroit are just huge parties/events. If you can manage to not take yourself too seriously one night, it can be pretty fun to go support Detroit and enjoy the city a bit.. And yeah, he does put on a great show.
Yeah, but here's the thing. I can support Detroit and enjoy the city without listening to garbage. There are plenty of events, restaurants, bars, etc.
Plus I only want to support white yuppie Detroit, not black Detroit, WT Detroit or immigrant Detroit. I feel like with something described as "a big party" some of my support may splash over into one of the more unsavory Detroits.
Last year Kid Rock bought a home in Detroit around the block from my parents house. No one in the family has had the chance to meet him yet but from our neighbors accounts he's a really nice guy.
Its amazing how long hes kept his career going. The guy knows how to adapt.
I hate him. If you ever read his song lyrics, he uses a whole shit ton of unnecessary colons and semi-colons. Makes me wonder wtf he is even talking about or if everything he is singing is supposed to be some gigantic inner monologue. Fucking idiot.
Ok, you may not like rap/rock/country, but how can you hate on him? You have to have respect for a guy that is from DETROIT, never left the area, made it himself, playing his own music, writing ALL his own music, selling out for 10+ years straight everywhere he goes, selling millions of records, and crossing 3 genres. I love his early stuff, like some of the latest stuff but don't love it. But you have to give it up. Almost all of the "pop" type acts coming up now are just face facades that have no talent, no voice, no writing and cant play. Those are the punks that deserve some hating. Like his music or not, have a little respect for the dude.
Wow. Someone who looks at colons and semi colons on lyrics? Why don't you just admit you are a holy fucking moron. wow.
I'll also say I have firsthand experience to know the guy is completely down to earth. I was at a nashville honkeytonk bar a year ago, saw he was there with a group of people. i was just standing nearby as he had a few hotties hanging on him. At one point they left and he was just standing there watching the band, saw me with a tiger hat on and motioned over to me and we talked for a few min's. He was very cool, asked about me, my family, etc. Awesome guy. Have met him a few times since at the Woodshop and he's always gracious with his time.
I'd like to see Kid Rock's reaction if someone interviewed him and told him that he was more talented than Justin Bieber.
Really dude....Bieber? You compared Kid Rock to Bieber.
Pretty sure that was tongue in cheek...
Well I think he did his best work DJing in the basement of Sig Eps in the early 90's.
Prior Planning Prevents Poor Performance
This coming from a board that starts a "tOfficial 20_ Phish and other related bands" thread every year
He mentioned at his show last night he could dance like the bieber, and he did. It was pretty funny. That's why I thought of JB
What's the worst thing a girl can hear after blowing Kid Rock?
I'm not Kid Rock.
I don't own anything he has put out.......not even on my ipod.
That being said I LOVE going to his concerts. Just a fun and entertaining time.
I have met the guy on 2 occasions and both times he was polite and accomodating...........damn friendly even.
