    Goddamn country music shit. That fucking crap should be outlawed. Who cares about stupid black people rapping about killing cops, country music should be considered a weapon of mass destruction. I'm sick and tired of hearing about how Bubba shot the jukebox and how Llewelyn had sex with his sister in the back of his pick up truck.

    no happy medium? :eusa_whistle:

    Landslide (whether by Fleetwood Mac or Dixie Chicks) and Thunder Road (Bruuuuuuuuuuuuce) always make me choke up a little. I also can't listen to Cat's In The Cradle...

    I liked Big and Rich's "Ride a Cowboy."

    I also like Dwayne Yokum a lot.

    Most modern CnW strikes me as nothing more that mediocre rock and roll played by people with cowboy hats.

    I like some of the older C& W.. a lot, acutally. Probably why I like Yokum, I suspect.

    I don't seek it out, but when I hear it, I think it's unique enough to be worthy of a listen.

    I like Jazz and classical, now, mostly.

    Jazz of the late 40's and early 50s and 60s especially.

    My all time favorite vocalist is still Billie Holiday.
