* 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.

* WriteWhatYouKnow: "Makin' Thunderbirds" from ''The Distance''. The line "We filled conveyors, we met production" shows Bob knows a little about working in an automobile assembly plant.

* ChartDisplacement: "Old Time Rock & Roll" only got to #28, but is hands-down his most famous song, and at the least, a great deal better-known than the #1 "Shakedown".

* InTheStyleOf: His rarely-heard 1967 single "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QVG7hWLj-cg Persecution Smith]]" is a ProtestSong that owes more than a little to [[Music/BobDylan another Bob]].
