BOOM: Kid Rock Confirms Senate Run While Trashing Mainstream Media

There have been rumors swirling around that Kid Rock is going to run for US Senate, and today he confirmed it with a press release titled, “Once again the press is wrong“, where he stated:

Once again the press is wrong. First of all, I’ve got 15 days from my announcement to file paperwork with the FEC! Second, I’m not signed to Warner Bros!!! – which simple fact-checking would have revealed. I have recently worked out a unique deal with BMG, Broken Bow, CAA and Live Nation to release music ON MY TERMS. Like politicians write books during their campaigns, I’m planning on putting out music during mine and IT ALL STARTS TONIGHT AT MIDNIGHT. It’s not a hoax, it’s a strategy and marketing 101! No plans for an album or anything else that has been the usual norm in the music business OR politics…..and…..

Senator Stabenow and I do share a love of music, although probably not the same kind. I concede she is better at playing politics than I am so I’ll keep doing what I do best, which is being a voice for tax paying, hardworking AMERICANS and letting politicians like her know that We the People are sick and tired of their bullshit!

“I am the captain now.” #fakenews #kidrockforsenate #kidrock #podunk #greatestshowonearth

Personally, I think Kid Rock has a chance at actually winning. He’s a person that has constantly redefined his persona over the years, always able to fit in with different crowds. The first I had heard a song from Kid Rock, it was long before he was a rock star — he used to be a rapper. I first heard him when he was featured on an Insane Clown Posse track:


If someone can successfully transition from DJ to rapper to a cowboy-hat-wearing rock star, I think he might have a good feeling for how to tap into what America wants in a politician, in this day and age.

Good luck, Kid.

    If Arnold can become a governor and Trump can become president, I don’t see why a musician can’t run for senate. Him trashing the mainstream media is a good sign.

      You forgot Reagan, Fred Thompson, Al Franken and NBA player Bill Bradley.

      Sonny Bono the first pop musician in Congress.

        Jesse the Body Ventura.

    Well at least the intro music as he makes his entrance in to convos will rock….
    My name is Kiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiid……

    • Dave The Sandman

      Personally Im holding out hope that Jaz Coleman of Killing Joke will chuck his hat into the UK political ring…..or deliver a well earned enema to Kiwi politics given he lives there most of te time
      Id vote Jaz

    I just think it’s hilarious how many successful or prospective politicians are coming from backgrounds that have no relation with politics and are usually some sort of show business. At its most cynical, that means America thinks politics are bullshit so let’s at least make them funny, at its most optimistic this is a big red white and blue fuck you for career politicans. Either way I’d love it if I were a fly on the wall hearing the tism fits from the Deep State that some entertainers have a better chance than their professionals even with all their resources.

      The danger (to them, anyways) is that these entertainers and celebrities have plenty of name recognition on their own — they don’t need to spend money and time ensuring people know who they are. People already KNOW who they are.

      What’s more, the candidates often have their own sizeable war chests of personal funds they can use, which makes them even less beholden to lobbyists.

      And thus you have chaotic elements entering the playing field who are difficult to predict, almost impossible to manipulate (for good or ill), and who may have their own notions on how to ‘make America great again’ 😀

      Personally I’m all for it, as I consider the current pack of morons in Congress to be barely worth wiping my ass with. There is very little Trump or Kid Rock could do that would make me outright hate them more than I loathe the Beltway vermin.
