Kid Rock to perform during Texans-Lions halftime

DETROIT (AP) -- The Detroit Lions say Kid Rock plans to perform during halftime of the Thanksgiving Day game against the Houston Texans.

The team and United Way announced Friday that the show will include Kid Rock's new song "Detroit, Michigan." The track references a number of the city's music stars, including Marvin Gaye, Aretha Franklin and Eminem, as well as other big names, such as Rosa Parks and Henry Ford.

Bing: Kid Rock's love for Detroit

The song is on Kid Rock's album "Rebel Soul," which is to be released Nov. 19.

Born Robert Ritchie in a suburb northeast of Detroit, Kid Rock continues to live in the area and is an outspoken booster of the city and state.

The halftime show will celebrate the 125th anniversary of United Way.

Nickelback last year, and now this?  The NFL must not think too highly of their fans and supporters.

I see the usual people trying to repress free speech and a two-party government by  trying to destroy those that don't agree with them. There are many nations in the world like that, but the United States isn't one of them.

Don't you guys feel hypocritical when you repress free speech?

Citizens of Detroit..

This halftime show must NOT be allowed to happen.

OCCUPY the Lions HQ's. Protest this disgraceful choice by the NFL.

Roger Goodell should be forced to resign for this f-ing disgrace.

Kid Rock is a "Let Detroit go bankrupt" UNAMERICAN pieceof sh*t.

He campaigned for the Fascist Robme that wanted to let Detroit rot.

Robme's quote..
"Let Detroit go bankrupt"

I hope Kid Rock gets booed off the f-ing stage.
