a once-vital form of rustic music derived from European styles of folk and dance music made by European immigrants to America. It's generally played with instruments like the mandolin, acoustic and steel guitars, fiddle and so on. It used to be about observations of the world, life and love in its complexities. Now it's all cliched, with imagery of cowboys, macho bragadoccio, Southern pride, small town life, "she done him wrong", "tears in my beer", "redneck" living, sentimental tripe like the trend-chasing "Angels Among Us", and "family values". Oh yes, and "God bless the U.S.A." jingoism. Ever since Garth Brooks (who is a watered down Bob Seger) hit it big in the fucking PC 90s, country has been "yuppified" and formulaic. Now there boring piano ballads with cliched lyrics galore sung by lousy Richard Marx clones with cowboy hats, the generic hat acts, pretty ladies singing tunes fit only for shopping mall opening-dedications, sexy ladies who sing corporate pop (no, it don't impress me much) and preachy, jingoistic sentimental crap in the aftermath of all this 9/11 business like the aw-shucks "Where Were You When the World Stopped Turning". This trash is pushed on the sheep public by corporate execs in suits.
Country music has a rich history, having been around all through the 20th century, maybe before. It is a "root music" of rock'n'roll (along with jazz, blues and other styles). Then in the mid 90s country lost its vitality, absorbed influences from 70s adult contemporary acts like Fleetwood Mac and the Eagles and it's been gawlee gee money-making yee-haw crap ever since, in other words, a pale imitation of what the genre once was. For hicks, soccer moms and yuppies. Utter puke. Whole families listen to this swill, the kids grow up and become slaves to manufactured trash "music" and stereotypes. Sad, really sad.

In one word: Painful.
1. As my grandmother turned on her country-music radio station, my ears started to bleed.

2. "If the Devil Danced in Empty Pockets, He'd have a ball in mine."

Terrible, terrible music made for Southern rednecks and other idiots. This is probably the worst form of music on the planet, ranking up there with raggae and Southern Rock. My mom loves it for some reason, i dont know HOW she does though.
Anyways, lots of country music is the same as Southern Rock: they all discuss loyalty to the South, driving ugly-ass pickup trucks, picking up redneck girls, romance between a redneck girl, some Southern woman leaving her man, and other crap dealing with tractors and occasionaly, America, which they are making look bad.
I heard that one country song where the moron lists of the states in the South.....yet he didnt mention Kentucky......my theory is correct, Kentucky isnt an actual part of the South!

The WORST music EVER, followed closely by rap and death metal.
Bob: Okay, guys, for our road trip, I brought CDs by Kenny Chesney, Ludacris, and Dismember!
Everyone with a Brain Who Doesn't Want their Ears to Hemmorage: *gets out of the car*

I hate country music.

The gayest, most retarded, most inbred, most redneck, most fucked-up right-wing shit in the whole goddamn world. NOT REAL MUSIC! It has annoying, white-trash singers who can't pick up a beat, whiny lyrics, occasional yodeling, and the irritating twang. Real music is rap (old school variant only), heavy metal, dance/techno, and punk rock.
Jimbo: I may be born in Georgia and be a Conservacrat, but I prefer more liberal genres of music or even better sounding conservative genres over country music.

Good liberal genres: rap (old school) & punk rock
Good conservative genres: hard rock & heavy metal
Crappy conservative genre: COUNTRY ALL THE FUCKING WAY!

Let's shoot the radio whenever someone plays it.
