* ''I Knew You When'' (2017)



* GrandFinale: Seger has stated that ''Ride Out'' will most likely be his final album. Given his age and the fact that his voice has decayed, he's probably not wrong.

He remained strictly a local favorite until 1976, with the release of ''Live Bullet'', a concert album recorded over two nights at Detroit's Cobo Arena. ''Live Bullet'' went on to be a perennial favorite of rock and oldies radio stations throughout Michigan and is often regarded to be one of the greatest live albums of all time. ''Night Moves'', a studio album released later the same year, was an even bigger hit and gave Seger his first national Top 10 single with its title track. Subsequent albums, including ''Stranger in Town'' and ''Against the Wind'', spawned more hits, and Seger has continued to enjoy considerable success over the subsequent 30+ years.

* SiameseTwinSongs: Many radio stations used the ''Live Bullet'' recording of "Travelin'Man" & "Beautiful Loser", which pairs the songs this way.

Seger's SignatureSong is "Old Time Rock and Roll", which is perhaps best known as the song that played during the famous scene of Creator/TomCruise [[RiskyBusinessDance dancing in his underwear]] in the movie ''RiskyBusiness''. Another of his songs, "Like a Rock", was employed for several years as a jingle for Chevrolet's truck commercials.

* TheBandMinusTheFace: On much of the 1969 album ''Noah'', Seger himself is nowhere to be found. Instead we get several songs written and sung by a ReplacementScrappy named Tom Neme.
* CanonDiscontinuity: His early albums have been out of print for years due to CreatorBacklash (see the Triva page).
* ChristmasSongs: One of his '60s singles was "Sock It to Me, Santa", and in 1987 he did a cover of "The Little Drummer Boy" for the first ''Music/AVerySpecialChristmas'' charity compilation which still gets a lot of radio play.

Robert Clark "Bob" Seger (born May 6, 1945) is an American rock singer and musician who began his career in the 1960s playing in the UsefulNotes/{{Detroit}} area. Although Seger has achieved plenty of success nationally, he is far more famous and well known in his home state of Michigan and surrounding states, where he enjoys a near-[[BruceSpringsteen Springsteenian]] iconic status.
