Kid Rock 'n' Roll

Feel like singing the blues about President Obama's handling of the economy? Maybe you're just sick of hearing "Born Free" at every campaign stop. If so, Guitar Center should be your next destination. Become your own Kid Rock and outfit a GOP cover band at the musical instrument retailer.
