Why do people hate country music Mar. 13th, 2013 @ 07:13 PM Reply

It's a pretty good music genre, I don't understand why so many people here hate it so much, it paved the way to rock n roll which lead itself to stuff like Pink Floyd, it has also had a pretty decent background story for it coming to reality, what do you think about country music Newgrounds?

I admit it, there's this one Taylor Swift song that I like.


It made more sense in my head.

I hate country because it isn't country. It's pop music from Tennessee.

"I'm a douchey country hick who drinks and drives smokes my lungs out and fucks every farm girl I see and I like to drive down dirt roads in my truck while wearing a full cowboy getup yada yada yada blah blah blah"

And the music that goes along with it is just absolutely atrocious, few things offend my sense of hearing more than country.

I'm pretty sure folk music and blues are what we now call folk music and blues.

Blues led to rock and roll.

It's pretty good, at least some of it.
Unfortunately most of it sounds too similar.

I really hate the poppy stuff, especially more recent stuff.

I don't listen to much country at all, but some is alright.

I don't hate it - I just don't listen to it. I suppose a lot of hatred is because cliche pop-country that became mainstream, have corrupted peoples impression of the genre.

no

"folk songs & blues" (combined) is what "country" music was called before it became "country" in the early 1950s

Blues led to rock and roll.

what do you think country is? it's all blues modes

12 bar blues is what led to bluegrass, country, rock, metal, Jazz, and several other genres, and 12 bar blues was invented along with blues

It doesn't matter what led to what really. So long as the music is good. I actually like some, but not all country music. I have to say a large amount of it is annoying and poor in quality, however there are a fair few country songs I do enjoy.

what the fuck does that have to do with anything

the genre "country" is literally just blues and folk - it influenced the development of rock n roll, period

listen to any etta baker or whatever from pre-1950s "country"

You're ignorant when it comes to musical history

the irony

I dislike it because it's old-style.

I listen to newer bands like Rammstein, Rise Against, Godsmack, and Disturbed.

yes, they are separate genres nowadays, but the distinction was not often made prior to rock n roll

in fact, it was often just called hillbilly, negro, or rural music

Country music radio really is just pop music, but with southern accents and topics that appeal to the conservative crowd.

"Chewing tobacco is good for the soul."

"I ran over my dog and my wife left me."

"My tracker's huge, let's have sex."

"Hillbillies and pick-up trucks."

"Obama sucks, let's have sex."

I grew up on a lot of it because of location and family. A lot of it is catchy as hell, and I have a few CDs in my collection that I do consider heads above the rest, but I'd prefer not to listen to it anymore.

What it sounds like you are defending is the older era country music, which is the better version. Loretta Lynn, Conway Twitty, Dolly Parton, etc.

Today's country music...I haven't paid much attention...but isn't a lot of it depressing stuff?

I hate most country music for the same reason that I hate most music.
I find the majority of it to be shitty.

There is some really good country out there though, just as almost every genre has some really good music.

Though I've yet to find any dubstep that I've liked.
