You're doing it right!

You like what you hear growing up I guess, although my parents were country fans. :P

My parents listened to country as well. Hated the shit growing up.

However, the “shit” they listened to, the type of country, was Willie, Waylon, Hank Jr., & Cash primarily.

As I’ve gotten older I’ve realized it was not only NOT shit but also some of the best music ever made.

And not just within the country genre IMO.

Let's be very clear. All country music is fucking terrible. All of it. Except Outlaw Country, for which we should all be eternally in debt. The roots of outlaw go straight back to Hank Williams.

Waylon Jennings is a goddamn national treasure.



And thank goodness for Sturgill Simpson keeping the flame alive.

My wife, who has known me since I was like 16 (now 47), knows my disdain of country music.

She now catches me in the garage working out or hitting golf balls while cranking some Waylon and has a hard time wrapping her mind around it.

Ummm what has happened to you she ask?

While I love me some Hank Jr., Waylon is just tops. Can’t beat that voice.

Additionally, those particular artist had a realness to them that just doesn’t exist today. Their music and words was lived.

I got a good dose of ABBA growing up too. I don't hate the music, just not something I'd put on the 8-track in my '73 Comet. :lol:

Do you guys consider Glenn Campbell to be traditional country? I always liked his music a great deal but he might have been that bridge between old-school country and the slop that is today's crap.
And what is called country music today is pure bullshit. Pop music with a twang sung by pretty people. Luke Bryan can choke on a thermos.

Glen Campbell not for me. Just not my thing.

If I had to listen to new country today I’d go with Chris Stapleton. He at least has some edge to him.

At least the limited stuff of his I’ve heard.

Cool-I'll check him out.

A decade ago I got into Ryan Bingham thanks to hardnosed. Wore out his album 'Mescalito' back in 2007/08.

I was in a shitty metal band in HS. A bit older than Ryan, but he went to our high school and would occasionally hang out in our garage while we jammed. Clearly he had more talent than us. :lol:

You’ve got to post some pics of yourself from those metal band days Lit...

A bit different but when I was in 8th grade Tesla played at my school dance. They were a local club band that at the time went by the name City Kidd. Our principle was buddies with thier original manager.

Shortly after they were signed, changed the name, and released Mechanical Resonance.

Did he have that 3 packs of smokes a day voice back then?

Funny how this thread went from Slayer to country music. Today I was driving for a few hours through one thunderstorm after another. Sheets of rain, 18 wheelers barreling by. I said fuck it and played 'Seasons in the Abyss' at 10.
Surreal.

Ok. Yeah. Country music sucks, imo. With the exception of some people mentioned.

But willie nelson straddles the line. And how the fuck can anyone not like Patsy Cline?

And fwiw, I never liked headbanger music. Gives me a fucking headache unless there is some kind of musicianship or interesting compositions. But I know "composition" is subject to interpretation.

And I also wonder about lit and his heavy metal band. You know there are tapes, that have been digitized. Send them along to B2B and he can showcase them on an intro to a podcast. :lol: :lol: :lol:

When it comes to country, I’m MUCH MUCH more discriminating of the males than females.

Waylon, Hank Jr., Cash, Willie. Don’t care much for the rest.

Cline is great.

In terms of today’s artist, I’d leave on Twain, Hill, even Underwood depending on the song.

Will never catch me listening to the bubble gum male artist of today.

If Lit doesn't bite, I am in a metal band and we have five albums and and two EPs of mostly instrumental music to choose from. :twisted:

Come to think of it, maybe that is something that deserves a thread. A lot of metalheads here and i'd wager one or two probably have or had a band at some point...

Nice choice.

I'll admit I can listen to all kinds of music. I listened to some country because my 1st wife had it on all the time in any room you walked into in our house it seemed. There's some good stuff out there even some "newer" stuff. It's the older stuff 20+ yrs older stuff that I could never listen too. I always gravitate towards rock/metal but I can listen to all kinds of music.
