Product Description


The History Of Rock arrives as the sort of superstardom-celebrating release that can buy a hot-selling artist time. (Think, say, G N'R Lies.) After 8 million (and counting) sales of 1998's Devil Without A Cause, the trailer-rockin' rapper is out to remind the world that it hardly started there. Mostly drawn, and often retooled, from his out-of-print Polyfuze Method and Early Mornin' Stoned Pimp, these tracks display a "funk country hick" already on point with his knowing, hardheaded combo of old-school beats and classic-rock guitars. An "American bad ass" for sure, but also an artist who could come only from America, Kid Rock brings the noise--not to mention the bread and the circus. --Rickey Wright

1.0 out of 5 stars AAH April 8 2004
By John
Format:Audio CD
You know this guy did appeal to me at first, but if you have this CD youve heard American Bad Ass, right? Listen to Metallicas "Sad But True". He ripped off the guitar part completely. H e tries to be metal, hardcore rap, and country at the same time. Fails miserably. He is a talentless wigger. Wait...thats too nice. I hope he commits suicide.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not as hot as Devil without a cause and Cocky May 25 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I have all three of Kid's albums and The history Of Rock isn't as good as the other two I'm afraid. Some of the songs are O.K. If I had to put the three albums in order of best to worst, History of Rock would come last and its a tie between cocky and Devil without a cause for the top spot. I don't know, maybe you'll like this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ya Keep On Beeyotch! Nov. 8 2002
Format:Audio CD
You'd never know it from his recent Best New Artist Grammy nomination, but Kid Rock has been around for more than a decade, peddling his blend of Southern-rock aggression and mack-daddy posturing to critics and audiences who were ambivalent at best and hostile at worst. That all changed with 1998's Devil Without A Cause, a testosterone-heavy blast of redneck rap-metal that captured the pop-culture zeitgeist and made rock-star indulgences such as History Of Rock and protege/collaborator Uncle Kracker's major-label debut possible.
Combining rarities, two new songs, and a number of pre-Rebel songs newly remixed or re-recorded, History Of Rock is a sort of greatest-hits package from an alternate universe in which albums such as The Polyfuze Method and Early Morning Stoned Pimp were wildly successful. The first single, "American Bad Ass", boils the Kid Rock philosophy down to a single swaggering anthem, a victory lap built around a sample of Metallica's "Sad But True" and a long list of shout-outs to Kid Rock's forefathers, from the Beastie Boys to Johnny Cash. The title track from Early Morning Stoned Pimp is the album's other apex, an irresistible bit of slow-rolling funk featuring a hilariously belligerent, mush-mouthed verse from Joe C and greasy, laid-back production that owes a debt to the work of onetime Rock producer Too $hort. The rest of History Of Rock is infused with Rock's inimitable swagger and over-the-top attitude that makes this album a real pleasure listening to.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not even close to his first one Sept. 1 2002
Format:Audio CD
His first album is much better than this one. This one sounds like a collection of the rejects that weren't good enough for his real CD. The one cool song is American BadAss, with Metallica's Sad But True as the actual music. But other than that, I wish I hadn't spent my money on this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars More fun that a pool full of instant gelatin Aug. 14 2002
Format:Audio CD
This cd isnt very mainstream, I will admit, but it is a classic, he took his old material, and some (not all) of the best material from his 2 out of print cd's polyfuse method and early mornin' stoned pimp. He has excellant songs on here, my favorites are american badass, prodigal son, paid, emsp, abortion, ya keep on, and my oedipus complex. in Abortion it i really think he wrote it to the son he and his g/f aborted, if you liked the style of history of rock i think youll like this cd also, although i have to say its not quite as good, but thats not saying much on the count of devil without a cause is in my opinion the greatest album ever made. The songs i wish he would have included on here are the original version of where u at rock, back from the dead, shotgun blast, and my name is rock

1.0 out of 5 stars This album rocks? He-he-he... July 11 2002
By nessy
Format:Audio CD
If this album rocks...
A lot of people suppose Bud is "The King of Beer", though this drink is as similar to real beer as Kid Rock is similar to REAL rock musicians! -:)
I guess his nickname is very good. "Kid Of Rock"! He reminds me of small boy that belives if he says F** before and after every word he'll seem like adult man! -:)
Can you imagine this "rock star" without EXPLICIT LYRICS?
Can you imagine Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Bob Dylan, etc. ( even Black Sabbath!) didn't use EXPLICIT LYRICS and were REAL rock stars ( not kids)?
One of previous reviewers said "he can sing rap...". He-he-he... Do you REALLY think you have to be musician and/or singer to "sing" rap? Do you REALLY think rap is music? If you do, well, ok, I'm sorry...

5.0 out of 5 stars This album RockS! July 7 2002
Format:Audio CD
I received this album as birthday gift and I was wondering whether I'd like it or not! I later thanked my friend who said he had passed this on to me! Anyways , The album begins with the amazing INTRO , then Comes the most amazing track KIDROCK has done... "Paid" is yet another track with nice beats and good lyrics. I think the major tracks in the album are spread all over! Theres not one track which I regret listening to except YA KEEP ON! The best song in the album is Easily "ABORTION" ! the lyrics left me speechless it goes like
"MY VEINS ARE POPPING FRM THIS LOVE INSIDE, I just cant let it out , these pipes and these needles are my only ..., they got me on the run around now , what is my life ABOUT? living in the shadows of a man ive never seen! (lyrics of Abortion)"
All together the album has a lot of variety and to me it is better than the 1st album ! Kid Rock really sings his heart out in most of the songs and thats why he's what he is!
