"Forever" was the first single released from Kid Rock's 2001 album Cocky. The song was a message to critics who had panned his music. Kid Rock stated that, despite what they thought, his formula of hip hop, southern rock and punk rock would last forever. The song name checks Oprah Winfrey, Al Roker, Earl the Pearl and Betsy Ross and also references the song Hit the Road, Jack.
The song peaked at #18 on Mainstream Rock charts and #21 on the Modern Rock Charts. It reached #27 in Australia, #52 in Germany and #75 in Sweden.
Pamela Anderson appeared in the video. "I'm a Dog," Cocky's 10th track, was released along with "Forever" on the single.
