im a hard rock kinda guy and i work with a guy that loves country music.. now i know the sayin to each their own but i just hate the sound of country music. the southern drawl and the whiny violin and dumb lyrics to boot.. especially the Red Solo Cup song.. i just dont understand how they come up with somethin so stupid and people love it. Is it me or is it just a different breed of people that just love simple songs with dumb lyrics. Does anyone feel the same as me?

You like Korn—your opinion is invalid.
The more you say 'epic' the less it means.

Nope. Country music has its charms. Grow up and accept other people's opinions.

You don't have to do that of course though, that's just my opinion

well i guess to each their own but I'll never understand it. I will let you all know that i did attend a Trace Atkins concert with my wife a couple years ago and that was a good concert. Im not sayin all country music is bad . There are some decent bands. But it just seems lately its becoming less and less about talent and more about puttin somethin stupid out and having people regard it as great..

Now, I don't exactly like country either. and I certainly won't listen to it on the radio.


But I have to admit, some country has some pretty ****ing great lyrics, and some songs even sound nice.

And this is coming from someone who has every single ramones/sexpistols/misfits album.
It's over simplified, So what!

Mainstream pop-country is just as stupid as the mainstream nu-metal you have listed in your profile.

Some of it's kinda catchy though. There's a few country guitarists I enjoy listening to, they have some sick chops.

I find a lot of the music you enjoy to be very simple and "dumb" as well.

Like any other genre, you have to sift through some shit (Red Solo Cup, radio country) to find the good stuff (Johnny Cash, David Allen Coe). Youre basically taking in the commercialized, bastardized version of a genre without trying to find the good stuff.

Oh, so now not all country music is bad? At least you're getting closer to not being an elitist douchebag.

Still, pop rock and pop country are both genres that, in my opinion, are shitty. That I'll agree with. Less about talent, more about raking in the benjamins by milking one successful format. Still, at the end of the day, if someone enjoys shitty music, I say let 'em be. I'll be over here, listening to my music, which they probably consider shitty, too.

How can you write off an entire genre? I wouldn't say I'm a country enthusiast, but I'm a huge fan of some artists who are heavily influenced by country (Bruce Springsteen, Kirsty MacColl) and pretty much all rock/blues music is influenced by country if you look back far enough

I can definitely imagine OP as the kind of guy who gets all defensive saying "Metal is so much more than just X,Y,Z band. You're so narrow-minded" while lumping all of country into Toby Keith, Jason Aldean, radio friendly stuff.

Oh the hypocrisy.

See, the problem is that you're just listening to the wrong country.

"Is it me or is it just a different breed of people that just love simple songs with dumb lyrics. "

The general public? thats pop music for you.

Country is far too vast a genre to stereotype, not all Country artsts are commercial crap.

OP, as a metal fan that doesn't enjoy country music, I still feel the need to inform you that most country artists still use more music theory, and develop more technique, than most of your favorite bands.

Also, Red Solo Cup is one of the very few country songs I actually like, so there's that...
#32
I have a roommate that I let move in because he plays guitar and I figured that we'd be able to play and write some songs together if we lived together. But he's a country guy. He flat out refuses to learn ANYTHING but simple chords, and won't take ANY advice from me because I'm "nothing but a metalhead." It drives me nuts. I hate country now almost exclusively because he gave country guys a bad rep to me. Also, the way they sing sounds god awful to me.
My sig? Nice.

I'm not the biggest fan of country music, and I'm also a fellow Pantera fan just like TS. It's people like him that give Pantera fans a bad rap. And that's also why I don't really associate with most Pantera fans. Or metalheads in general.
