''Cocky'' is Music/KidRock's fifth album, which saw him drawing more from SouthernRock and {{Blues}}. While still featuring rapped vocals and HardRock riffs prominately, there is overall more singing, more ballads, and a more eclectic variety of songs compared to his previous album, ''Music/DevilWithoutACause''. While ''Devil'' is predominantly considered a RapRock (or RapMetal) and HardRock album, ''Cocky'' more prominently features SouthernRock styles, although the Southern sound is often combined with rap, such as on "Forever".

!Tropes:
* AsTheGoodBookSays: In "Lonely Road of Faith", during the bridge, Kid Rock says a verse that is similar to Psalm 23:4: "Though I walk in the valley of darkness / I am not afraid / 'Cause I know [[YouAreNotAlone I'm not alone]]."
** Furthermore, Kid is an ordained minister.
* {{Blues}}: On "You Never Met a Motherfucker Like Me", "Baby Come Home", and a few others.
* {{Bowdlerise}}:
** "Picture" had different edits to censor the line "Fueling up on cocaine and whiskey". One version changed "cocaine" to "water", and another just muted the word entirely.
* FakeShemp: Due to label issues, the official single version of "Picture" has Allison Moorer singing Music/SherylCrow's part. However, most stations played the Sheryl Crow version anyway, and it was even listed as "Kid Rock with Sheryl Crow or Allison Moorer" on the charts.
* GuestStar: Music/SherylCrow on "Picture" and Music/SnoopDogg on "W.C.S.R."
