It has almost been a week since Kid Rock said ‘those’ comments about Beyoncé so they beehive should have calmed down enough to have a sensible debate about his comments. If you missed the comments when they were made, the former rock star said in an interview with Beyonce, to me, doesn’t have a f–king ‘Purple Rain,’ but she’s the biggest thing on Earth.”

He then went on to say “How can you be that big without at least one ‘Sweet Home Alabama’ or ‘Old Time Rock & Roll’? People are like, ‘Beyonce’s hot. Got a nice f–king ass. I’m like, ‘Cool, I like skinny white chicks with big tits.’ Doesn’t really f–king do much for me.

As expected, the BeyHive – Beyoncé’s fans who are more loyal to the cause that ISIS members – came to her defence with a stinging attack on the rock star who had a failed attempt at being a rap artist.

But the question remains, does he have a poin? Millions of fans, even more YouTube videos and countless awards tell us she is a superstar but does she really have timeless classic?

Looking through Beyoncé’s back catalogue highlights a career most artist would give a limb for but where is the timeless classic that will be playing on VH1 in 20 years? Not including her Destiny’s Child hits like ‘Survivor’ or ‘Independent Woman’, I am struggling to think of a Beyoncé hit that would stand the test of time and could be considered a classic on the same scale of Whitney’s ‘I Would Always Love You’, Lionel’s ‘Hello’, Gaye’s ‘Sexual Healing’ or even Mariah’s ‘Hero’ despite her recent fall from grace.

Kid Rock is really in no position to talk but his comments do raise a serious question. What is Beyoncé’s biggest classic to date or doesn’t she have one? I have shortlisted what I think are worthy of the ‘classic’ tag but what do you think?
