Kid Rock: Devil Without A Cause – Regretting The Past

Don’t listen to Devil Without A Cause. Or Kid Rock in general.

About Rocked

Rocked!  A series that at least once a week will take a new album in the rock genre (everything from soft alternative to metal) under review so you can see if it's worth your time and money.


  1. Great review!

    Speaking of regretting the past, Nevermind is one that I can say I owned, but not Devil Without A Cause. It was so bad I stopped listing to my local rock station because songs from it were ALWAYS in rotation.

    BTW: While he could be referencing the actual aurora, I always took Northern Lights to be a reference to the strain of marijuana that he liked to smoke.


  2. An arrogant, talentless, disgusting trailer trash hack that became a success by exploiting the work of other people and appealing to the absolute lowest common denominator. Also a trump supporter. I’m shocked, just shocked.

    ..well not that shocked.

  3. I still like Bawitdaba. 😐

  4. Honestly, the fact that Devil without a Cause sold better than Nevermind doesn’t pain me at all. I really don’t think Nirvana is all that great in the first place, and I really don’t think Nevermind deserved to go 10x Platinum.

    • Oddly enough I kind of sort of agree, but probably for different reasons.

      As someone who experienced the early 90s in my formative teen years, I think Nirvana became media darlings deservedly, but there was a whole amazing movement of great rock and killer albums that were every bit as good that didn’t get as much praise.

      Alice in Chains, Smashing Pumpkins, Weezer, Beck, Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, RHCP, Corrosion of Conformity, Monster Magnet, Guns N’ Roses, Toadies, L7, I Mother Earth, White Zombie, Stone Temple Pilots, Danzig, Rancid, Sublime, Garbage, Rage Against the Machine, Faith no More, Bjork, The Cranberries, Hum, No Doubt, Stone Roses, Bush…there was so much awesome rock we were spoiled.
