Over the past year or so, Kid Rock made a ton of headlines between his unapologetic political views, his conversations with Tucker Carlson and Bill Maher, and with the release of his new album Bad Reputation, featuring the anti-snowflake, anti-cancel culture anthem, “Don’t Tell Me How To Live.”
And of course, the entire world saw his Bud Light protest this morning…
But if you wanted to know how Kid Rock actually lives, just listen to the party pad he has out in Nashville.
On an episode of the The Joe Rogan Experience, Joe was chatting with fellow comedian and Nashville resident Theo Von. If you’re not familiar with Theo, he’s absolutely hysterical and he’s got some great specials on Netflix.
Go watch it, thank me later.
Anyways, back to Kid Rock…
With Theo moving to Nashville, they got to talking about other folks in Nashville, like Bob Ritchie, AKA Kid Rock.
And according to Joe, Kid Rock has a SPREAD.
A 27,000 square foot mansion that looks just like the White House, there’s only two bedroom in the whole place. The rest… party space. A twenty-person hot tub that looks like a mine, a gold covered walk-in shower, an old church that was converted into a horse stable, and more.
“It’s the most wild, rockstar, hillbilly type shit… it’s when you give a real redneck fuckin’ insane amounts of money, they build something like this.”
If you ever get the invite to Kid Rock’s, you might wanna take it.
Speaking of “Don’t Tell Me How To Live,” here’s the music video.

Kid Rock Has Massive Middle Finger Sculpture Built
If you take a cruise through Vermont, you might catch a glimpse of this 7-foot wooden middle finger along Route 128.
The massive sculpture was carved out of a 700 lb block of pine and sits 16 feet in the air on the property of Ted Pelkey, who commissioned the piece as a big “fuck you” to the town of Westford. Pelkey is pissed at city officials for blocking a land development project on his 11-acre property.
What started as a protest has become quite the tourist attraction with daily visitors, however the artwork has since caught the attention of Kid Rock who contacted Pelkey about getting one for his Nashville property.
And, according to WCAX, it’s happening.
“I laughed and said, ‘Well, have him call me,'” Pelkey said.
And then he got this message: “Hey Ted, Merry Christmas. It’s Bob Ritchie, Kid Rock.”
He told Pelkey, “I like your style. Thanks for getting us the info on that middle finger. I gotta have one of those on my property here in Nashville.”
Pelkey contacted the Vermont artist who agreed to make another for Kid Rock., and now, Pelkey and his wife are delivering it to the rock star in person.
The next time you’re in Nashville, take a drive past Kid Rock’s house, you just might see one of these waving at you.
Kid Rock Says He Cannot Be Canceled
With what’s sure to be the most polarizing record of the year with Bad Reputation, the new album features politically charged songs like “We The People” and “Don’t Tell Me How To Live” as well as more mild country and rock tunes like “Last Dance,” and “Rockin’.”
In support of the album Mr. Rock is also ready to launch his Bad Reputation Tour, which he says may be the last large arena tour of his career, featuring support from Grand Funk Railroad, Jason Bonnam, and Foreigner, with special appearances from Trey Lewis.
However, to kick off the new album, ol’ Bob Ritchie made an appearance on Fox New’ Tucker Carlson Tonight.
And in the teaser, Kid Rock made his point very clear… you can’t cancel him.
“I am uncancelable… because I don’t give a fuck.”
I mean, he’s not wrong…
“I’m not in bed with any big corporate things at the end of the day, there’s nobody that beholden to, no record companies no corporate interests no nothing, you can’t cancel me.
I love it when they try.”
It’s interesting to say the least…
Kid Rock Blasts President Biden In New “We The People” Music Video
Back in January, Kid Rock brought us the most polarizing song of 2022 (I’m already putting my money on it), “We The People.”
Going back to his roots with that rap/rock sound that originally put him on the map, he sings about everything that he believes has caused division within this country, like President Joe Biden, Dr. Anthony Fauci, CNN, Facebook, Twitter, and so on and so on, all to the chorus of “Lets Go Brandon,” the commonly understood euphemism for “F*ck Joe Biden.”
But by the end, he calls for love and unity…
Ironic? Yeah, just a bit…
Here’s what he had to say about the song:
“A hard rock rap tune… you know all the craziness going on in our world the last several years: politics and the polarization and watching where this country is headed, the social justice, just constantly from being a Trump fan and being attacked in the media everywhere day in and day out.
I don’t mind taking a good punch, but I hit back motherfucker and I hit hard. ‘We The People’ gets into that.
And there is a little bit of unity at the end of the song because at the end of the day, I had to get a lot of this stuff out. I write what’s real to me and once I get this stuff out, songs like ‘Don’t Tell Me How To Live’ and ‘We The People,’ eventually I’d really like to get back to bringing people together.
We can believe differently, I think that’s one of things that makes this country great. I think the power that be want to divide us, and that’s no good… united we stand, divided we fall… the old cliché.”
That being said, we officially have a music video to go along with it.
The video portrays Kid Rock decked out in red, white, and blue, along with clips of President Joe Biden, Anthony Fauci, Kyle Rittenhouse, Donald Trump and more, as well as a number of anti-Biden Kid Rock fans.
