My daughter thought Lamb of God was awesome. Slayer was great, Anthrax wasn't bad, Testament good, and I guess she missed Napalm Death altogether. Still can't believe that's what she wanted for her birthday.


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.
