Worst Things About Country Music

Everyone knows what country music is. Most people know it sucks. But the question is, what sucks about it?
The Top Ten
1 Lack of Difference Between Artists

The artists sound the same and the songs are getting less "country". The kid who won American Idol 2019 is the perfect example. Sounds like a hundred other country western singers, nothing distinctive at all. Yet they'll make him a star, singing so-so songs. Yawn. Country music has really lost it's charm and the singers have lost true uniqueness.

Country use to be good. Now it's just the same thing over and over and over again. A bunch of people with southern accents singing about the wild west and their tractors.

2 Boring Melodies
3 Bro Country

I dislike all Country but this is the worst its all about tractors and beer

4 Lame Lyrics
5 Completely Low Class Accents and Lyrics
6 No Imagination
7 Southern Accents

Well, coming from someone who lives in the south, that how people talk. Just like to me, people from Boston or New Jersey have completely different accents. It is a little rude to say that because that is how they were raised and can't change that.

The accents sound fake, they so not sound real. It sounds like they are pretending to do it.

The ONLY good country artist is probably Johnny Cash. And I love a lot of music...

8 Lack of Ingenuity

Simple chords, simple rhymes. Lack of thought, lack of ingenuity. The fact that it still exists, shows the complete lack of constructive thought within its listeners.

9 It's Stereotypical

Florida Georgia Line is stereotypical bro country music. If I had to hear "baby you're a song" one more time, I'd cut my head off with a huge sword.

Cold beer on a Friday night, a pair of jeans that fit just right and the radio onn. Every country song ever.

10 Lack of Instrumental Talent

Okay I don't like country but this shouldn't be number two at least they play guitar instead of the macbook.

Always the same crap. There is no musical visionary in this stupid country music business

Haha yall are really funny. You probably like the trashy rap everyone listens to now. Country is the best!

The Contenders
11 Can Cause Suicide

Of course. I work at a grocery store where the music playlist is 80% country. It plays on shuffle so you can hear the same song 3 times in one night(I have :( ). My coworkers have joked about hacking the system so we won't feel the need to blow our brains out. It's particularly annoying when I hear customers or the dang cashiers singing along. If there were no consequences I would probably smack them into next week. Maybe they would come back with taste.

I agree 100 percent my buddy plays country a lot now and every time we get to the second or third song I start thinking about how much better death would be.

12 All They Sing About is Love and Tractors

They also sing about trucks, hot girls, various states (mainly states in the South, Southwest or West), beer, cheating, drunkenness, dogs, horses, rivers, etc, etc, it shows how far this genre has fell.

Just try a little more variety country singers!

This is true for almost everyone (Johnny cash is an exception in my honest opinion)

13 Alcoholic References

If not talking about cheating their talking about alcohol. Being drunk and not knowing what happened is obviously bad and singing about it where younger kids can hear is just awful the world is already has too many problems. Though some country singers are really talented!

Country music has gone from a genre about life and culture in the rural parts of America to a whole genre that supports unrealistic ideas of partying and drinking. I'm all for having a good time, but that's ALL IT IS at this point.

14 It's Getting Worse Every Day

If Carrie Underwood's bubblegum country (specifically, country music made for the preteen pop audience) isn't bad enough, there are Luke Bryan and Florida-Georgia Line to perpetuate the bad stereotypes of country music and shamelessly exhibit them.

15 Lack of Manliness

All the songs make it like the man is lucky to even be around the girl. Sets up bad expectations and false beliefs for the women that men are 2nd rate. Look at the songs about a man waiting around for a woman to come home and how he's so lucky, she can wreck his plans, come home after being out with the girls... the VERY SAME behaviour that causes marriages to fail, the country songs make it okay and even romanticize it.

16 Country Stations

Why is this on here? If you don't like them then don't listen to them, they aren't bothering you.

17 It is Slowly Becoming a Subgenre of Hip Hop

It has become all the annoying disco and hip-hop you couldn't stand back in the 1970's.

18 All They Sing About is a Girls, Trucks, or Drinking
19 It is No Longer Country

"Country" music is no longer country. Go hear anything from Johnny Cash, Hank Williams Sr., Waylon Jennings and compare it to today's garbage that is called "country". It is nothing like the classic country that has survived and has been loved for decades.

This is my biggest gripe about current country music. It is not country, it is crap rap. Give me the old classics.

20 Country Rap
21 It's Completely Off-Base

Country music used to be about a man and a common mans problem, which I personally don't mind but, now it's shifted from that to a skinny jeaned sorority girl fantasy.

22 Sexual References

Compare country's lyrics to rap. You will definitely not be complaining about sexual references in country after seeing what rappers talk, not sing, about.

Every woman in a country song is reduced to a, "little crazy country chick." Come on already.

I love country music, but this is the one thing I don't like. The rest is amazing.

23 I'll Never Be Old Enough to Listen to Country Music

More like I'll never be illiterate enough to listen to this rubbish
