Kid Rock, Framed

Framed

Like you, we sometimes wonder: what's the greatest Kid Rock song ever?

It's hard to say. On the one hand, you have the earlier hits like "Only God Knows Why" and "Cowboy;" on the other hand, you have more recent stuff like "So Hott" and "All Summer Long." All are testaments to the human spirit.

We were thinking about this the other day, when we discovered that Kid Rock himself--you know, the real one!--regards "Amen," off the Rock N Roll Jesus album, as "the best song I've ever written." Excited, we watched the video, and realized that the video was also the best song he's ever written! Or something like that.

It's important to share this info with our readers, we decided, so here we are. As is our habit, we're interpreting the video on behalf of Kid Rock via our captions, which are weird and dissonant this week. But enjoy the vid, enjoy the captions, celebrate life, and be back here again next week for even more caption zaniness!

Important blog note! If you like reading comments you may have already read, this is the place to be! Yes, it's "Repost Week" here at Framed, that delightful time when your excellent comments are posted for a second time...and replied to! Why, it's almost as if the lucky readers quoted have won life's lottery and will forevermore be irresistible to the opposite sex and have lots of money!

Almost!

From the "Jimi Hendrix, Framed": "picture 8 is pretty dam low on the funny meter 4 students were killed at Kent State. How would like someone making that kind of fun about your loved ones?"--Chicka

Framed replies: We would like that. 

From the "Billy Currington, Framed": "Lol. this was a funny view on a great country song."--ned c

Framed replies: Yes, it was. Thank you.

From the "Madonna, Framed": "Mr. Kordosh, it's "Ja" not "Jah". Please don't quote the German language if you can't do it correctly. Sad to know someone who is supposed to be as educated as you didn't take advantage of the fact that the correct spelling of a two letter word was only a mouse-click away from you."--missinugianna

Framed replies: We suck.

"I am familiar with Mr. Riegel's work in Creem magazine. We both worked in Cincinnati at one point in our lives, but I do not know if he was born there like I was. He was a huge fan of Lester Bangs. He is an icon, just like O'Connor, Kordosh, and DiMartino."--Yahoo! Music User

Framed replies: You're just making up names now, right?

From the "Asia, Framed": "I think you meant Febreze. Fabreeze! is a computer network."--Yahoo! Music User

Framed replies: Jah, what you said.

"I am completely familiar with Asia. I was only 6 years old when they put out their first album."--Nathan I
