Like a Rock is the thirteenth studio album by Bob Seger, and his fifth with the Silver Bullet Band. It was released on 1986-04-14. The music includes various forms of rock, particularly heartland rock and country rock.



My stepfather had this album on cassette in the late 1980s, so I would frequently hear it when riding in the car with him. I very much prefer side A over side B. One of the things I like about the album is, although it covers a lot of themes common in country music, like being a touch rugged individual, it isn't jingoistic nonsense. Instead, there is a song about immigration, which, although a little problematic, still embraces the concept of the USA welcoming in refugees.
