* FeelingTheirAge: After singing of "the sweet summertime, the last lyrics of "Night Moves" are "Strange how the night moves... with autumn closing in." "Like a Rock" meets this head on with the opening to the second verse... "Twenty years, now. Where'd they go?" For each song, it's an effective WhamLine, and it pushes the song into TearJerker territory.

* 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 later changed his mind with ''I Knew You When'' in 2017.

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.

* OlderThanTheyLook: The only thing that's changed about Seger in his later years is grey hair and glasses. Apart from that, he hardly looks like a seventy-year-old man.

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.
