Dog in Top HatPopular music individual Kid Rock has prevailed in the Sixth Circuit appeal of a District Court ruling dismissing the lawsuit against him that sought to prevent him from using the “Top Dog” trademark. The Circuit Court agreed that the plaintiff, a former business partner, had abandoned the mark by not using it for over a decade.

That was the good news. The bad news — for Mr. Rock — is that the performer, who is evidently something of a rough-edged fellow, appears to have been canned as a prospective performer of whatever art or science he performs, at the second inauguration of the Top Dog himself, whom the Kid evidently supported for reelection.

If true, this won’t please Jim at RightThoughts! But perhaps there’s something to be said for maintaining some degree of gentility at the foremost social event in the country, what? It’s not as if he has trouble getting dates, from what one reads in the penny dreadfuls.

  1. No he doesn’t, Ron, as he is one of Pamela Anderson’s (of “Baywatch” fame) numerous suitors. Hopefully she didn’t pass onto him her nasty case of hepatitis C. I for one feel that the inauguration won’t be the same without such modern classics as “Baditdawa,” “Black Chic, White Guy” or “Early Mornin’ Pimp.” America will be poorer as a result.


  2. I haven’t heard the song myself, but I think that the GOP should invite Kid Rock to sing “Black Chic, White Guy” to further its outreach efforts. Diversity and that sort of thing…

    Fleetwood Mac is too seventies and Clintonish. Remember that his ’92 campaign theme song was “Don’t Stop Thinking About Tomorrow.” And who’s gonna sing? Christine McVie and Stevie Nicks must be just shy of 97 by now.


  3. Oh, far from forgetting, it was at the forefront of my mind. I had already decided to vote for Bill Clinton before the Democratic primary in ’96. But when I heard them using Fleetwood Mac at the convention… well, I knew I was going to regret it.

    (I did.)
