Top Kid Rock Songs – The Styles List
The announcement was made this morning and we’re sending YOU to Hollywood, Florida to ring in 2013 with Kid Rock on New Year’s Eve at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. Since we’ve been putting this contest together with Loudwire, I’ve been on a Kid Rock kick – So here are my Top 5 Favorite KID ROCK songs/videos.
#5 – You Never Met A Motherf***er Quite Like Me
The song speaks for itself and it’s a perfect intro to the list
#4- American Bad Ass
I know what you might say, “it’s a frickin Metallica rip off”. To an extent, true. But Metallica gave him the go-ahead to turn ‘Sad But True’ in to what you hear in American Bad Ass. I’m not a huge fan of sampling but damn if Rock didn’t hit it right on the money.
#3 – Welcome 2 The Party
I’m an old skool rap fan and this song stood out to me on the “Rebel Without A Cause” album because of the feel. Sure, it’s not “rock” but that’s what made Kid Rock so successful early on – his vast musical variety.
#2 - Bawitdaba
The song that helped to put Kid Rock on the map. Remember MTV’s TRL? I still laugh that Rock was accepted by Carson Daily and the MTV teenie boppers. Hey, we were able to get an actual rock band on that damn show – chalk that up as a victory!
#1 – Cowboy
The song I think that got everyone in to Kid Rock. Cowboy got me to buy “Rebel Without A Cause” and from there I was hooked. I remember being a freshmen in high school driving around and rocking out the entire album thinking we were cool (oh you know you did it too).
Quick Side Note: We’re giving you $500 spending cash. If you gamble it away and win, don’t forget your friendly neighborhood Styles (just saying).
