Did someone else say this?! Because it's a great start.

Bawitdaba - Kid Rock

1. 1st album for Kid Rock (at least popular)
2. Intro with the slow background and with the chorus to bawitdaba that builds and builds.
3. Breaks it into the yell.
4. Just saying to start "My name Kiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiid (drummer start)
KID ROCK ROCK
(Introduction to him)

I'm not really a fan of Kid Rock, never heard this song and it's really bland.

I was just looking in track 1 for albums to make a good intro for the rest. Doesn't have to be best song on the album, just starts the beginning.

Nobody cares albums new now, just do the singles and do digital eras. I'm thinking of albums from 90s where I got a cassette/cd on album and play the whole thru.

Yup. They went (mostly) into the ditch after that, but it and Sparkle & Fade are among my favorite late 90’s stuff

Yeah I think that album was amazing but only a couple songs I've liked since.

In 2017 they played that whole album live in Des Moines as its 20th year anniversary. Was incredible...they also added in Santa Monica.

Only one correct answer. Blind from Korn's self-titled. Instrumental build up to a scream of "Are you ready?"
