Last month, the internet was abuzz when Kid Rock started dropping hints about throwing his hat in the ring for a U.S. Senate seat.

According to The Hill, Kid Rock recently appeared on The Howard Stern Show and told the veteran shock jock that his whole "bid" for Senate was some sort of joke, or ploy, or stunt to support an upcoming album or something. "Are you kidding me?" Rock said. "Who couldn't figure that out?" A "Kid Rock announcement on" link displayed on "" now links to a promotional webpage announcing the album's release and tour dates-for the humbly named "Greatest Show on Earth Tour"-beginning in January".

Kid Rock went on to explain that running for office was "the worst advice that I ever gave myself, but it's been the most creative thing I've ever done", and that the entire campaign was a joke to help promote his upcoming album, Sweet Southern Sugar, which is set to release on November 3.

"I have one of them call me, he goes, 'dude, is this really happening?'"

"Fuck no, I'm not running for Senate".

Rock's new album, "Sweet Southern Sugar", will be released November 3, Stern said. "Are you f**king s**tting me?" A website also sold Kid Rock for Senate merchandise.

The L.A. Times headlined another piece, No joke: Kid Rock is a competitive candidate for the U.S. Senate in MI. "This is awesome, '" he said of the fake campaign. "And I've gotten to see everyone's true colors".
