#80. Kid Rock / Best Bands of All-Time / Top 100

Kid Rock broke through the music industry in the late ’90s with his Vanilla Ice swagger and trashy image, while shielding a soulful southern rock identity. It took people several years to realize his song-writing talent and dedication to good rock ‘n’ roll music. Even though the early-morning-stoned-pimp underwent a transformation from hip-hop to classic rock, we remember him for his powerful hard rock performances. Kid Rock is ranked #80 on the Gears of Rock’s Top 100 Hard Rock and Heavy Metal Bands of All-Time Countdown. The best songs by Kid Rock and the Twisted Brown Trucker Band are “Cocky,” “Jackson, Mississippi,” “Bawitdaba,” “Let’s Ride,” “Only God Knows Why,” “Rock n Roll Jesus,” “Rebel Soul,” “I am the Bullgod,” “American Badass,” and “Amen.”
