Be honest.
I'd do it. I think that I could stand one night with a man for the financial security of my whole life and the life of my children
And no I'm not gay. I'm 100% straight.

SOme of Social Distortion's self-titled and Somewhere Between Heaven and Hell stuff would qualify as country punk.

Yep thats the closest thing I can think of. Listen to their remake of the Ring Of Fire. That is some good country-ish punk
#7
Somewhere Between Heaven and Hell is definately a country-influenced album. Also, check out some This Bike is a Pipe Bomb, they have a country sort of sound to them. Also, even though I've only heard maybe one song of his, Hank III is supposedly country/punk.

Personally, I recommend the Meat Puppets. They are simply amazing. Just listen to their album "II"

Guys please recommend some good songs that will get me started in this cowpunk/country punk genre. Recommend original cowpunk songs and not punk covers of country.

Drive By Truckers.

It's like Skynyrd meets Poe meets an assload of whiskey.

You might not like 'em, but give 'em a shot.

I thought of another while I was at work, Saw Wheel. As for songs, I really don't even know where to start.
#19
Meat Puppets rock. Definately check them out

Hank III, man
Straight to Hell is a phenomenal album

damn, Hank III rules. thats the only album i have and it is one of my favorite cds. go to archive.org, and type in "Hank III" on the search, ya see; hank III likes it when people bootleg his stuff cuz he hates his record label with apassion and is on a very strict contract, so he purposly wants people to bootleg his stuff. but yeah anyways, my bootleg, (and the rest i checked were simular setting) it starts off with aobut 20 country songs, then about 6 or 7 songs by hank III and the damn band, a psychobilly type band, and then ASSJACK. extreme hardcore, like grindcore but a tad different. anyways, back to the country punk, (getting off topic i know) Meat puppets rule. PERIOD. buy II and up on the sun. X has some countryish stuff, (john doe, bassist/singer, would later have a solo country career) Frank Black and the Catholics are a very kickass band also.
I love all forms of Rock 'n' Roll, past and NOT present
#26
Yeah the Meat Puppets for sure!

But also check out The Country Teasers. I recently got into this band even though they've been going for quite a while. They are absolutly awesomely amazing. They are from Scotland and they play funny little country inspired punk songs. Seriously give this band a listen. They recently signed to IN THE RED records so they must be good.

RandyVanHendrix mentioned Social Distortion's remake of 'Ring of Fire'. Great song. Can somebody please tab out the intro riff, I can figure out the rhythm.

I saw them play in the basement of a thrift store last night. It was pretty rad. They stayed at my friends' house last night, and I would have gone and partied with them, but it was a school night.

Anyway, as far as reccomendations go, I'm suprised nobody has mentioned Old Crow Medicine Show. They are awesome, except Against Me! covered them, so they are probably selloutz.

Rancid are the best punk band ever.

Tim Armstrong is a songwriting genius, is a complete fashion diva and has an incredible singing voice.

He doesn't sound like Opie from family guy at all.

I saw the Meat Puppets last Friday. They were great, but messed up on the songs a few times since they haven't played in a while. The last song they played was "I Will Always Love You" by Whitney Houston, they pulled it out of their ass, it was great. During Lake of Fire Curt Kirkwood pulled a little 9 year old on stage and told him to scream into the mic, then he gave him his guitar and he strummed it, the kid was really nervous, then he stage dived into the crowd, it was cool. I wish I was that kid.

They seem like really nice guys, Curt's a really good guitarist as well.

I recommend seeing them.
#39
^Man, I really want to see them. I was so happy when I heard about the reunion. Hopefully they come over to the UK soon.

Curt is one of my favourite guitarists. Such a unique style.
They always seem to do such crazy covers too.

My friend and I sing "I Will Always Love You" all the time, but it's a bitch hitting those high notes on the "Youuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu" part.
