Kid Rock Turns 40 And Regrets His Stage Name [VIDEO]

Kid Rock just turned 40 and is regretting some of the things he did in the past – namely his stage name.  I’ve been saying for a while now that he needs to at least change the “rock” part anyway.  Kid Rock himself said “it is the worst name in the world”.

Born Robert Richie, I can definitely understand him going by Kid Rock.  My only problem is that he is not so much “rock” anymore.  Don’t get me wrong, I still enjoy a lot of his music but if you’re going to have a name like ‘Kid Rock’, by gosh, you better rock! Lately, I have been thinking he needs to change his name to ‘Kid Country” or something.

In the May issue of Esquire magazine, Kid says his stage name is

“the worst name in the world,” and adds, “The only person who had a dumber name than me was the Fresh Prince. Hey, it sounded like a cool rap name when I was 16. But it stuck, and now it’s me. I’ll be an 88-year-old man, [saying] ‘Call me the Kid.'”

In any case, whether you agree with me or not, do you think he should change his name, and if so, what should he change it to?

What other artists out there do you think should change their name?

In the meantime, here is some vintage Kid Rock.  Horns up!
