Duh, No Kid Rock Will Not Denounce The Confederate Flag

Oh, Kid Rock. On Monday, following the recent tragedy in South Carolina and subsequent debate over the Confederate flag, the Michigan chapter of Al Sharpton’s National Action Network held a protest outside of a Detroit museum with a Kid Rock exhibit. The Detroit rocker and alleged glass dildo recipient — who is, again, from Detroit,… More »

The Week In Pop: Kelly Clarkson’s Edgeless Excellence Continues

Kelly Clarkson started out with negative cred. In 2002, Clarkson became the first winner of American Idol, which made her wildly famous and deathly uncool. This was before poptimism, and although Idol was an massive ratings success, the average critical line was something like THIS POP STAR FACTORY IS AN AFFRONT TO GOOD TASTE THEY… More »

Kid Rock Doesn’t Get Beyoncé: Where’s Her “Sweet Home Alabama”?

Oh, Kid Rock. In a new Rolling Stone profile terrifyingly called “The Killer Inside Kid Rock,” our favorite love-to-hate glass dildo recipient spews his stereotypical red-state, misogynistic bullshit. Stuff like “I bought it when Obummer came into office, because I’m thinking, ‘What if he fuckin’ bans guns?” and “‘Hey, what do all women want i… More »

Kid Rock To Seth Rogen: “Your Uncle Probably Molested You”

The non-musical elements of this Kid Rock album cycle continue to be wildly entertaining. A post on Rock’s website links to news stories about Michael Moore and Seth Rogen criticizing Clint Eastwood’s American Sniper, one of the most politically divisive movies in recent memory for the way it glorifies killing. Moore tweeted that snipers are… More »

Of Course Kid Rock Killed A Mountain Lion

Michigan heartland rockers Kid Rock and Ted Nugent went hunting last week, and as Billboard points out, Rock killed a cougar during their outing. It is a very Kid Rock thing to do. Nugent had inflammatory things to say about the kill, calling animal rights activists “braindead squawkers,” which is a very Ted Nugent thing… More »

The Week In Pop: Forecasting 2015’s Event Albums And Rising Stars

Take it from someone who started a weekly pop column last year: 2014 was a bad year for pop music. I write this knowing that there are still many self-satisfied blowhards in the world — sometimes even in the comments section of this very website! — who will tell you that every year is a… More »

Kid Rock Admits His Last Album Was Bad, Targets “Coldplay, Coachella, Social Media, And Hipsters” On New One

Kid Rock — alleged possessor of glass dildos, singer of songs — will release his tenth album, First Kiss, early next year. In advance of the new record, Rolling Stone sat down with the aging rocker to get a preview. And he’s angry about a lot of things! First off, he admits that his 2012… More »

Kid Rock Responds To Dildo Subpoena In Insane Clown Posse Lawsuit

The tale of the regifted glass dildo turned some heads a few weeks ago when it was reported that Kid Rock was asked to procure said dildo to use as evidence in a sexual harassment lawsuit against former Insane Clown Posse and Psychopathic Records employee “Dirty Dan” Diamond. Kid Rock has now released two letter… More »

Kid Rock Subpoenaed To Produce Glass Dildo As Evidence In Insane Clown Posse Lawsuit

Well, this is probably the classiest story on the music internet this morning. Andrea Pellegrini, a former publicist for the Insane Clown Posse, is suing the Detroit duo for sexual harassment, and among other allegations (e.g., the 2012 Gathering Of The Juggalos was “a living hell”) she claims that the former ICP and Psychopathic Record… More »

Eminem – “Berzerk” Video

Eminem’s video for his aggro back-to-basics single “Berzerk” just hit the internet, and it’s as cartoonishly ugly as every Eminem video ever. It’s also, like every Eminem video ever, probably more fun than it should be. It mostly revolves around Em in a room with a gigantic boom box, and it also has copious use… More »

The 27th annual Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Inductions took place in Cleveland Saturday night, and while there were a lot of no shows — Faces’ Rod Stewart, Beastie Boy Adam Yauch, Chili Pepper John Frusciante, and Guns N’ Roses’ Axl Rose, Dizzy Reed, and Izzy Stradlin — only Axl’s absence was booed by… More »

Peace, Crazy, Love Trains Collide At The Rally To Restore Sanity And/Or Fear

Hundreds of thousands of bloggers Americans gathered at the National Mall in D.C. today to watch Comedy Central stars John Stewart and Stephen Colbert and friends (e.g., Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Father Guido Sarducci) take on (in Stewart’s words) “the country’s 24-hour politico-pundit-perpetual-panic conflictinator,” and basically give the middle finger to Glenn Beck. Reasonableness was at the… More »

Liveblogging The 2009 Grammys

Welcome to the Grammys 2009, which promises to be a very special night in which Radiohead will perform with the USC marching band (proof!) and Robert Plant & Alison Krauss will win all the awards.

10 Trendy Pop Star Costumes For Halloween ’08

I was going to write up a guide to contemporary Indie Rock Halloween Costume Ideas, but decided against it. You’re probably wearing a Fleet Foxes costume right now. Where’s the fun in that? So instead we turn our attention to the wider musical landscape, and suggest some pop star costumes that people will actually recognize. More »

Kid Rock Wants You To Steal Everything

There’s all sorts of tenable positions on piracy. For instance, there’s situationally justified piracy, the “civil disobedience” of piracy, like when Trent Reznor opposed Universal’s pricing scheme in Australia and retaliated by telling fans to steal his shit. Then there’s just universally justified piracy, like what Kid Rock’s all about in this PSA. Don’t sto… More »

Tommy Lee Explains The Kid Pebble Fracas

So we’re all on the same page and in case you missed it, here’s the VMAs’ best moment:

Off-cam, of course! Heaven forbid we saw something marginally riveting during the live telecast. So, something we can agree to agree upon: the VMAs were an ineptly produced, unintentionally tragic reminder of the shit… More »

New Kid Rock Video – “So Hott” (And Tommy Lee Punch-Out Vid)

Still reeling after last night’s train wreck? Us too! But since we’re gluttons for punishment (obviously), it’s only fair we start the day with a Kid Rock video since he was involved in the only interesting that happened at the VMAs. (Off-cam, no less.) Enjoy the delicious self-parody that was Kid Rock and Tommy Lee… More »
