Kid Rock The History of Rock (Lava/Atlantic 83314) The funniest thing about Kid Rock's "The History of Rock" is its title. Because what we get on this CD isn't a look back at where Rock has been, but a collection of remakes that recasts his old songs in terms of his current sound. As revisionist history goes, not even the Soviets could have done better. It's not hard to see how Rock arrived at such a decision. When he started making records, way back in 1990, he was a straight-up hip-hop artist.

In the days before he became Kid Rock, little Bob Ritchie used to stand in front of a mirror pretending he was Michael Jackson in sequins and a white glove, working out his dance routine to "Beat It." "Everybody has their little corny stage, and that was mine," Rock says with a laugh. "Now I realize what really got me was that beat, and it was an 808 drum machine - the most prominent instrument in rap music during the '80s. It was on everything from the Beastie Boys' Licensed to Ill, the Run-D.

As fireworks burst over the Inner Harbor last night, pyrotechnics of a different sort were at play at PSI-Net Stadium, where a crowd of 60,000 watched Metallica top off a five-band, seven-hour heavy rock spectacular. The occasion was the Summer Sanitarium Tour, which in addition to Metallica included Korn, Kid Rock, Powerman 5000 and System of a Down. But even though the other bands shared the bill, the evening clearly belonged to Metallica. Not only did the quartet play twice as long as any of the other acts, but its hit-heavy set earned the evening's most enthusiastic response.

"Y'ALL LOOK LIKE you never seen a white person before," says the white rapper Eminem at the beginning of his hit song "The Real Slim Shady." That line captures and reverses an experience that many African-Americans have had, the experience of being treated as a "representative of the race." A black man who walks into a department store in an exclusive white suburb or a black woman who becomes one of the few minority employees at a software firm knows what Eminem felt like the first time he stepped onto the stage at a black club and started rapping.

Rumor has it Travis Pastrana did a backflip the day he was born - and stuck the landing. That's the story, at least, according to travispastrana.com. Though the Annapolis-born motocross and rally car champ's Web site stretches the truth about his birth, the action sport athlete's extreme feats seem just as impossible. In 2006, Pastrana received widespread recognition for landing motocross' first backflip. Today, he continues to thrill spectators with dirt bike double-backflips and plunges into the Grand Canyon.

Hey, have you heard about this seventh-grade kid who keeps a diary? Actually, he's not a real kid, because, like, what real seventh-grader would wanna write every day? Well, unless you're text messaging, but that's not like writing. Text messaging is cool. Anyway, the kid is a boy named Greg Heffley. He's not that cool. In fact, he's kinda wimpy. He's got a big head and a stick for a body; he looks like a Blow Pop. Plus, he wears a stupid backpack the size of a microwave. He's got a mom who's a total wimp.

She is 12, maybe 13, old enough to know all the lyrics to a rock song, but her smooth skin and soft features betray that she has only just entered adolescence. As the about 3 1/2 minutes of buffered video footage begins, she grabs a pair of headphones and begins bopping her head in time to the bass drum. She smiles. She grimaces. She adjusts the volume. And then, right before the vocals start, she turns toward the camera. Her large brown eyes look right at the viewer as she begins to mouth the words to Bloc Party's "Banquet": "A heart of stone/a smoking gun/I can give you life/I can take it away."
