A Quick Tip by RabidChihuahua

  • Jan 28, 2012

I can safely say that even when I first heard of Kid Rock back in the very late 90's, I never liked his music.  When you look at his musical career, it should make one cringe, given that he started off with extremely banal, insipid rap-rock then decided to play brain-rotting country music that rips off elements from songs like "Werewolves of London" and "Sweet Home Alabama."

Now if you excuse me, I'll go perk up my brain cells with something actually good like Ice Cube or Skinny Puppy.

The only song I liked from him was AMERICAN BADASS--but I think I liked it because it was as a theme for WWE's UNDERTAKER.

Born: January 17, 1971

One of the unlikeliest success stories in rock at the turn of the millennium, Detroit rap-rocker Kid Rock shot to superstardom with his fourth full-length album, 1998's Devil Without a Cause. What made it so shocking was that Rock had recorded his first demo a full decade before, been booted off major label Jive following his Beastie Boys-ish 1990 debut, Grits Sandwiches for Breakfast, and toiled for most of the decade in obscurity, releasing albums to a small, devoted, mostly local fan base while earning his fair share of ridicule around his home state. Nevertheless, Rock persevered, and by the time rap-metal had begun to attract a substantial audience, he had perfected the outlandish, over-the-top white-trash persona that gave Devil Without a Cause such a distinctive personality and made it such an infectious party record.

Bob "Kid Rock" Ritchie (born Robert James Ritchie, January 17, 1971) grew up in Romeo, MI, a small rural town north of the Detroit metro area. Finding small-town life stiflingly dull, Ritchie immersed himself in rap music, learned to breakdance, and began making the talent-show rounds in Detroit. Inspired by the Beastie Boys' Licensed to Ill -- white performers fusing rap and hard guitar rock -- Kid Rock recorded his first demos in 1988, and eventually scored an opening slot at a Boogie Down Productions gig. That performance, in turn, led to a contract with Jive Records, which issued Kid Rock's debut album, ...
