Performer Kid Rock has done a music video from on top of what appears to be a pre-HUD Code mobile home. He’s absolutely cool with mobile home and manufactured home living. So much so that he sold a mansion and bought a camo manufactured home not far from Nashville, TN. Born Robert James Richie, his stage name is Kid Rock, as millions of fans know him. Be warned. Like it or not, his music frequently features “f—k you” type lyrics. The Born Free singer has long held an eclectic mix of genres and lifestyles that do not fit what some see as the Make America Great Again (MAGA) churchgoer’s worldview. So, it is no surprise that his latest release comes with direct slams of Let’s Go Brandon, of COVID19 mandates, politically induced inflation that harms the common employee or retiree more than it does the rich.
Per NBC news, Yahoo, and other media outlets, Richie has said he will not appear on his upcoming tour anywhere where a mask or vax mandate is enforced.
Oh, and by the way…. I just got off the phone with our 45th President (hopefully 47th) and he expressed how proud of me he was over “We The People” being the #1 song on Itunes! Suck on that you trolls, critics and haters! Continued… (1/2)https://t.co/nlmw7vA1dS

We The People by Kid Rock was uploaded on 1.24.2022 and already has 2,589,719 views by 1.29.2022 at 1.11 PM ET.
As Newsmax’s Eric Bowling said this week on the Balance, “Why Kid Rock is screaming what everyone’s thinking.”
Kid Rock’s Bawitdaba [Official Enhanced Music Video] displayed his in-your-face embrace of mobile and manufactured homes.
That music video has had over 38 million views. The exact total on this date at 1.15 PM is 38,842,667. The still shows Kid Rock on the roof of a home in an older ‘mobile home park.’ An array of eye-catching stunts are mixed with other camera angles in that same location.
Kid Rock – Po-Dunk [Official Video] has topped 48 million views. Newer and older manufactured homes are laced through the video, along with a diversity of ages and ethnic groups. 48,843,231 views.
Kid Rock is hardly the only star who owns or has owned a mobile home or manufactured home. Stevie Nicks is another star.
As the YouTube page for the video above says, “I saw Fleetwood Mac at the Palace of Auburn Hills on 10/22/14. Steve Nicks performed “Landslide” and dedicated the song to Kid Rock. He must have been sincerely moved because he came up behind her mid-song and planted one on her.”
Billionaires and millionaires have or still own a mobile or manufactured home. Some related reports that follow are examples of those realities.
Yes, for some, there is a ‘stigma’ attached to certain beliefs or lifestyles. But others not only embrace what others try to marginalize, they are proud of it. As America struggles with an affordable housing crisis that only factory-home building can solve, it is time to embrace manufactured homes. It is time to enforce the laws that Congress passed by widely bi-partisan margins that are supposed to make living in a manufactured home easier and less costly.
As the linked news release reveal, there are good reasons why people of all backgrounds should be happy to see more manufactured housing in use in the U.S.A. ##
