Pants Poll: The Greatest Rocker from Michigan

Michigan has been good for America. We have offered some great musical talent to the world. Kid Rock, Bob Seger, Grand Funk Railroad, Ted Nugent, Mitch Ryder and the Detroit Wheels, Glen Frey, The MC5, Iggy and the Stooges, Brownsville Station. I could go on and on.

There have been some awesome songs about Detroit. Panic In Detroit by David Bowie, Detroit Breakdown by J. Geils, Detroit City by Alice Cooper and that overplayed song by Kiss, Detroit Rock City.

I think the argument is easy when it comes to Michigan artist’s… Bob Seger will be known as the king until someone else knocks him off his throne. Alice Cooper is the “Godfather of Shock Rock” and has quite a collection of great music. Mark Farner and Grand Funk Railroad get’s the #3 spot. Mark is just an awesome guy and a good friend of Duran Martinez, but that is NOT why his is on this list. He’s here because he kicks ass to this day. It’s a damn shame Grand Funk hasn’t made up and re-united but I think that train has left the station. Love him or hate him, Ted Nugent has to get honorable mention, in my opinion. Put aside the politics and that guy is a guitar master.

Who do you think is Michigan’s greatest musical export is? Vote below.
