* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: "Positively 4th Street", "Idiot Wind"Wind", though it is important to note that the latter of these turns into a "The Reason ''We'' Suck" Speech by the end.

* TheMovieBuff: He's a considerable cinephile, especially of the movies from TheFifties and is surprisingly articulate about [[http://cinemasparagus.blogspot.com/2012/01/bob-dylan-interview-with-john.html cinema about that time]]. His song "The Mighty Quinn" was based on the little-known Creator/NicholasRay film ''The Savage Innocents'' and in ''Chronicles'' he discusses the influences films by Creator/FedericoFellini and others had on him, as well as ''Film/TheGirlCantHelpIt'' (aka every rock musician's favorite film).

One of the most influential living songwriters in popular music, and an American cultural icon. Music critics refer to him by [[LastNameBasis last name alone]] (sometimes even just his first name will suffice), and references to his life and career seem to pop up everywhere. Wiki/{{Wikipedia}} is a great place to learn the particulars, so we'll stick to the tropetacular.

** His cover of "Blue Moon" on ''Self Portrait'' sounds like a distant ancestor of his current standards albums.
* ProfessionalGambler: The title character of "Ramblin' Gamblin' Willie", who gets killed after he gets the DeadMansHand in a poker game.

* CoverAlbum: A bunch. ''Music/GoodAsIBeenToYou'' and ''World Gone Wrong'' consist of solo acoustic performances of old folk standards. ''[[ExecutiveMeddling Dylan]]'' is an album of cover version out-takes. ''Music/ChristmasInTheHeart'' has him covering ChristmasSongs. His three most recent albums, ''Shadows In The Night'', ''Fallen Angels'' and ''Triplicate'', are covers of Tin Pan Alley standards (many of which associated with Music/FrankSinatra). Also, ''Music/BobDylanAlbum'', ''Music/SelfPortrait'' and ''Down In The Groove'' have more covers than original material.

Dylan still records music, which [[TrueArtIsIncomprehensible people still don't really "get"]], and is once again sacrosanct among music critics and record store employees. As ever, this is mostly on the strength of his lyrics—Dylan won the UsefulNotes/NobelPrizeInLiterature in 2016, becoming the fist songwriter to receive this honor. Nonetheless, his nasal growl of a singing voice remains a point of contention among listeners. The stock Bob Dylan joke is that [[TheUnintelligible nobody can understand a word he says]], and he is usually depicted as talking exactly as he sings.

'''Bob Dylan''' (born 24 May 1941), born '''Robert Allen Zimmerman''' ([[DoNotCallMePaul no, you can't call him that]]), moved from Minnesota to UsefulNotes/NewYorkCity at age nineteen with a guitar, some flannel shirts, [[TheDrifter and not much else]]. Adapting his new surname in homage to Creator/DylanThomas, he performed folk songs in bohemian Greenwich Village coffee shops and bars with an affected accent, inspired by Music/WoodyGuthrie, and became a fixture of the local "folk scene"—which doubled as a leftist political circle deeply interested in the CivilRightsMovement. Dylan wrote songs specifically for this group, the most famous being "Blowin' In The Wind" and "The Times They Are A-Changin'". Although these two {{protest song}}s are still his biggest claim to fame today—he's the guy who "brought politics" into music, somehow—this "topical" phase of his career lasted little more than twelve months.
