Another no talent moron who somehow has followers.

Sad really. I've seen him twice in concert (granted it was in early 2000's) but they were fun shows. Last one was when he toured with Aerosmith and Run DMC.

On June 9,  Kid Rock took to twitter to address his recent use of a homophobic slur directed at fans at a Tennessee bar where he was performing.

Does he also do Bar mitzvahs and weddings now too?  Because performing at a tennessee bar sounds like just a few steps from, "I don't know man he just crashed on my couch and now he won't leave" territory.

Not excusing it, but isn't there some leeway when a person's actions is completely in character? I mean, if you didn't already dislike the guy, is this really the reason to start?

"Oh, I don't mind all the faux-macho pop rock, widespread misogyny, random co-opting of hip hop and country and folk rock, dysfunctional personal relationships, but I ain't gonna stand for a random slap fight with some random guy in a small club. I'm done!"

He's just a poor workin' man, salt of the Earth type. He ain't straight outta Compton, he's straight outta trailer! And by trailer, I mean very nicely appointed estate in a lilly white suburb of Detroit.

I don't think any social media sick burn is going to be worse than his career now reduced to performing to a handful of people in a bar that he gets irate at because they have their phones out.

It wasn't so much the venue, it's that they gave the puppet show top billing. If I told them once, I told them a thousand times....

Years ago I worked for a radio station called Zeta. They had a summer concert called Zetafest that kid rock was headlining. Well while setting up bay front park for the concert, he was attempting to ride a dirt bike around the grounds and he could barely stay on the bike. It was hilarious watching him fail over and over again.

He surely said quite a few homophobic and racist phrases every time he failed.

Funny how he was blaming others for his own incompetence but that's the go to with racists and bigots

Nashville has many bars that are House of Blues size and I think Kid Rock has some sort of ownership stake in at least one of them.

I really wanted to see that show.  Never had the chance to see Run DMC, it was before Kid Rock went country, and I guess Aerosmith put on a good show too.

Now Jam Master Jay is dead, Robert Richie is too old to kid and too soft to rock, and Aerosmith has some old lady singing for them.

Let's beat a dead horse here. His target audience along with himself really doesn't care about today's PC culture. How many LGBQT people do you really think follow him. I'm sure he does have gay friends out there somewhere. But he's never going to walk on eggshells to appease today's media scrutiny.

Kid Rock is a huge piece of shiat.  I have a buddy who grew up with him and has the best stories about "lil Richie".

Evidently he was a big wuss and an idiot. Ran around crying a lot. Had trouble riding a two wheeled bike so he had an adult trike.

The two groups you mentioned never faked being black.

Kid Rock faked being a redneck.

All because he finally got a close look at what his audience looks like.

He was directing the slur at his fans. He was calling them that. No word has any power unless it's pointed at someone. It's not that he used the word, it's who he directed it at. The people he makes money from.

But yeah, a lot of them are too stupid to know it.

When Kid Rock first hit the scene with Cowboy and his other early hits, the rednecks were all like "Why is he rapping, he ain't black, damn yankee."

I remember it.

Now that he palled around with Hank Jr and drapes himself in an American flag, they forgot all about that.

I went to Nashville last month and our group stayed at a pretty nice Air Bnb. When we got there, the owners (who had another house in the neighborhood) came over to greet us. They told us about pretty cool spots to go to in the city. When one of us asked about Kid Rock's bar, they glanced at each other and told us. "Nah. Don't go there."  We listened to them and had a pretty good vacation.
 
2021-06-10 12:41:19 PM  
Public disclaimer:  I am not, nor have I ever been a fan of Kid Rock - despite being from Michigan, despite the fact that he has a house a mile or so from my grandparents' old place, and despite being surrounded on all sides by clueless rednecks that approve of his song sullying "Werewolves of London."

That said...

"Bawitaba" was always my song of choice at around 5:00am on a Friday night / Saturday morning noraebang (karaoke, for all y'all western people) selection in the downtown district of Chungju, somewhere around the 6th pitcher of either Cass or Hite saeng maekju.  If I could make it through the song without either falling down or running myself out of oxygen, it was a good night.  And also cause for another glass of watery beer to celebrate.

CSB: Years ago, I covered one of those giant outdoor festivals for my college paper. This one was held at a NASCAR stadium and had Kid Rock, Korn, Metallica and other douchey early 2000s bands. Anyway, Metallica's singer was sick or some junk so they had this big jam session at the end instead of their normal set. Kid Rock forgot never knew the words to the Metallica song he tried to sing.
