The Best Kid Rock Albums of All Time

List Rules
This list includes studio albums only, so if you add an album make sure it's a proper studio release.

Hailing from the Motor City, Kid Rock has established himself as one of rare musicians who can be considered one of the best rappers and best country American rock artists of all time. Since they’re such an influential band, let’s rank the best Kid Rock albums, with the help of your votes. It's almost impossible to picture it now, but Kid Rock (a.k.a. Bob Ritchie) was a bona fide hip-hop artist. His debut Grits Sandwiches for Breakfast (1990) was straightforward hip hop, but by his career-making Devil Without a Cause, Rock became the leader of rap metal.

This Kid Rock discography is ranked from best to worst, so the top Kid Rock albums can be found at the top of the list. To make it easy for you, we haven't included Kid Rock singles, EPs, or compilations, so everything you see here should only be studio albums.

If you think the greatest Kid Rock album isn't high enough on the list, then be sure to vote for it so it receives the credit it deserves. Make sure you don't just vote for critically acclaimed albums; if you have a favorite Kid Rock album, then vote it up, even if it's not necessarily the most popular. 

This list below has a variety of albums such as Rock's sophomore release The Polyfuze Method (1993) and his more recent Sweet Southern Sugar (2017). This list of popular Kid Rock CDs has been voted on by music fans around the world, so the order of this list isn't just one person's opinion.
