Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan is a professed heavy metal fan, but hell be getting a little help on the campaign trail from a musician known more these days for his guitar-heavy rock tunes than his headbanging prowess.
Michigan native Kid Rock will appear and introduce the Wisconsin congressman at a Monday rally in the rockers home state, according to the local news site mlive.com.

Go Ryan Go!
sober I hope
This is awesome! Kid Rock could actually sway the vote with a lot of these MI folks. Rock is an all American with a legitimate concern about the future of the Republic and understands why he’s so rich and how to get richer.
I saw him on “Diners, Drive ins, and Dives” didn’t have a clue about who he was, I am Old. He came across well, didn’t get my liberal slime feelings up and he brews beer.
Kid Rock use to be the dj at my high school dances.
Paul Ryan and Kid Rock = 2 American Bad Asses
All summer long might be my favorite song of the the past 20 years. I know some of the social convservative here might not like him, but if convservatives want to win, we need his fans.
Ok you old f*rts;) How many read Kid Rock & think Chris Rock????
I thought the world was upside down (again) LOL!!!
i like Kid Rock... and i like his story... how he became successful... it didn’t happen over night, as it really never does... takes hard work and determination... i like that he believes what he believes and isn’t afraid to stand up for it... especially since he is a music artist in the entertainment industry...
I like that song too but as he totally lifted the guitar riff from "Sweet Home Alabama" I assume that Lynyrd Skynyrd is getting a lot of royalties from it as well!
Actually it is a stereotype that conservatives are fuddy-duds who sit around listening to Lawrence Welk and Doris Day. Conservatives in the 21st century are pretty much up to speed with current music trends. I think there are a lot more conservative rock stars also, but many of them keep it to themselves as they don't want to hurt their record and ticket sales.
I have been aware of Kid Rock since the late 1990s and the song “Cowboy.” I like the fact he got away from rap and hip hop and is now purely a rock/country singer.
Cutting a hole in my flag and sticking his greasy sweaty self through it tells me everything I need to know aboout this piece of shit.
"All Summer Long" is the title of a song recorded by Kid Rock. It was released in 2008 as the third single from his seventh studio album Rock n Roll Jesus. The song samples two hit songs of the 1970s, Warren Zevon's "Werewolves of London", and Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Sweet Home Alabama"........
Play that song and right after it play Werewolves of London.
My bet is either Kid Rock is a Lican or Warren Zevon enjoys the good weather.
Would you prefer he wrapped the Red FLAG AROUND HIM?
We really oughta shield kids from rock and politics!
Thanks for the additional info...it’s a great riff and I’m surprised it doesn’t appear in other songs.
If you think using Old Glory as costume isn’t offensive, then you are the one with the problem. Sorry that you don’t understand the flag code or the sanctity of the greatest symbol of freedom the world has known.
So you would also object to buxom American women in flag based bikini’s as well?
The question is, was his intention to disgrace the flag?
I revier the Constitution and the Founding Documents and fight to rid the treason of the last 100 years, but I grew up in the 1960’s when to show the colors was was to invite a fight.
If I have to erect a false god and betray the underlying beliefs that created those colors, it is a symbol to be respected, but is not to be revered but to be respected for the symbol that it is and the underlying principles that it stands for, I find no fault with Kid Rock.
I disagree with his methods, but his intent was good
he is a favorite of the troops, too, overseas, from what I hear
Not my cup of tea, but he sure aint CODE PINK! :)
I just wish he didn’t us the flag for that, but he isn’t wiping his butt with it, he is wearing it as a sense of pride...
Dumb for us old farts, trendy and slick and “presenting” to the young’uns
I’m a social conservative and I love Kid Rock’s anthem All Summer Long. I wasn’t always a 61 year old fart you know.
Lol, yes....Kid is now Bob Seger, or at least sings & plays his music these days.
There’s a mission for you to travel this country and find all the places flying an unlit flag at night. They’re all over. These places are showing the same disrespect as that which you’ve expressed outrage.
Have at it.
Here’s what I think: There was a time when respecting the flag meant something. I guess I’m not as up to date as all of you. I’m glad, cause when I see the Stars and Stripes I think about the men at Missionary Ridge, Resaca de la Palma, and San Juan Hill; I think about Belleau Wood and Nicaragua; I think about my father at Guadalcanal, Tarawa, Iwo and Okinawa; I think about Chosin, Quang Tri, and Beiruit; I think about Baghdad and Kandahar; I think about every drop of patriots’ blood shed for an ideal. And I think that every person who wants to apologize for the scum-sucking piece of shit who wants to take the banner that represents the blood and sacrifice of generations and drape it over him like a rag so he can dance around and sing and pretend that makes him patriotic need to reexamine their own hearts. That’s what I think.
Not even close. Try again.
thanks for sharing. :)
