Kid Rock’s ‘Rebel Soul’ gets dirty
Heartland rock and country epics — that was Kid Rock, vintage 2010. Kid's “Born Free” that year was a good one, filled with the grandeur, grit and fresh air of a Bob Seger record, without Kid's usual hip-hop lean or strip-club soliloquies. Problem was, few people bought into the idea of a Chevy truck-driving, wind-in-your-hair-styled Kid.
They like their Kid with dirty hair and a dirtier mind.
So he gave it to them.
No matter how tacky or tawdry, there's always an earnest Kid trying to break through on tunes like “God Save Rock n Roll.” As long as it's nasty, let him try.
