Kid Rock started out his singing career covering songs for his parents' guest at parties they would often throw for their friends. By age 11 he was dancing at the local mall outside of Detroit as a member of The Furious Funkers, a local b-boy group he and his friends made up. Because this was at the time of the success of The Beastie Boys and Run D.M.C., he bought a turntable to mimic their style and sound, in turn started tuning his talent. In high school he would Dee Jay at house parties and in return would take payment in the form of food and beer. He joined Bo Wisdom for a couple shows and his stage name was created when audience members said they "had enjoyed watching that white kid rock."
