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.

Because Taylor Swift destroyed the genre.

all idiots

folk songs & blues (as it was literally called prior to rock n roll) is what we now call country music

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.

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.


If in doubt then set it on fire because fire is A if not THE answer and solution to absolutely everything.

I dislike it because it's old-style.

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

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'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 couldn't have put it better myself.

The singers all sound the same. The instrumentals all have the same crappy sound. My school bus plays country on the radio. The teachers put that shit on when the students are working. I can't escape it. I can escape it on my bus because I'm allowed to use my iPod then.

Because they're idiots. There's a shitload of awesome country music if you dig past the Toby Keith crap.

Talking about Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, David Allen Coe, etc.

I don't hate country....Taylor Swift is the only singer I prefer in the genre though...otherwise, rap or r&b are my favs.

Although I'm not a fan I suppose not all county is bad, but then again I haven't really been exposed to true country music. Unfortunately the country I'm stuck listening too at work is all the popular contemporary crap. which I have grown to despise with a passion. We have come to the point where Rap, Country and Pop really all don't sound all that different from each other. The music industry has really become oversaturated and domesticated.

I don't have it, but I prefer to listen to other genres. It's probably because most country music is cliche, pointless and/or depressing and/or corny. Some songs are creative or humorous, but most of the ones I heard were more catchy than they were meaningful. Maybe the same reasons why I don't like most mainstream pop music.
