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.

Ummm. County is amazing. I don't understand u people. COUNTRY 4 LIFE

You can predict what will happen if a new single came out. - PanthersFTWpatriotsFTL

They all sound the same, it sounds like there's two country songs sung by different people.

Sing about something else. - PanthersFTWpatriotsFTL

3 It's Stereotypical

Basically they are just Modern Pop songs with words like Redneck, Beer, Trucks, and Tractors thrown in - christangrant

In every song. - PanthersFTWpatriotsFTL

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

4 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.

It kinda sounds like they're moaning... - Celestius

Well, most country people are from the south, so that's their accent. You can imagine what that would sound like when they song. But I think you guys are being mean. How would you like it if someone said "your accent is so stupid! " What about British people? I live in Maine, so I have a little bit of that "r" taken off. Ok, I'm done.

I hate draws. And I'm from Arkansas. - PanthersFTWpatriotsFTL

5 Alcoholic References

If they took a drink for every time they reference a drink they will be SUPER drunk. - PanthersFTWpatriotsFTL

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.

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!

Pop music isn't any better the rappers Most likely smoke weed so don't judge him

6 Sexual References

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

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.

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

I hate this

7 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

Simple music for Simple minds!

Well, they have a banjo, so I have kind of disagree.

8 Bro Country

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

9 Lame Lyrics

"I'm head over boots for you" what._.

The most meaningfull lyrics

Dude, it's corny
Country sucks
The older kind was music from the heart it was sad
These fools ruined it

10 Can Cause Suicide

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.


Uh, I hate country music with a passion, but what the hell? No it can't

Yes - PanthersFTWpatriotsFTL

The Contenders

11 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.


12 Country Stations

My local country radio station spokespeople are annoying as heck. - PanthersFTWpatriotsFTL

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

Country stations play the same songs over and over agia

13 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.

14 Boring Melodies

I think mine should be added because I'm sure that this one isn't on the list

15 It is No Longer Country

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

"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.

16 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.

17 It's Inappropriate

It is a bunch of baloney

18 Criminal References

I mean, Eminem rapped about killing his wife or killing strangers because of their sexuality (not that I'm condoning this or defending him). But Carrie Underwood has made a song about killing her ex, and she is seen as an angel that can do no wrong. If that is the norm in country music, I do not want a part of it.

What, this is country not hip hop laugh out loud... Just came from the same one about hip hop and this one looks a lot like it except instead of annoying accents, wait, that one's on here too

I'm pretty sure Johnny Cash made a song about kill a man just to watch him die. What is that not a crime? Or is it just rap music listen to lyrics you dicks

19 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.

Old country was better

Beer and tractors and whiskey
#winner I got 1 million dollars in country tunes #winning #wow #country - MoldySock

20 All They Sing About is a Girls, Trucks, or Drinking

The ACTUAL lyrics to Hope On The Rocks

I'm a bartender

I'm a bartender

I'm a bartender

I'm a bartender

21 Country Rap

Refer to Luke Bryan, Kick The Dust Up

Pop wrapping is any better at least they have manners


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

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

23 Old Stars
24 Not Many New Artists Emerge Often Enough to Keep the Genre Fresh
25 Completely low class accents and lyrics

Many of them couldn't speak English well even though it's their FIRST LANGUAGE!

26 Generalizes Small Town Culture

Country music makes eveyone who lives in a small town sound like a redneck, alcoholic, farmer. Which is false.

27 Dumb Songs and No Imagination!

Two of the dumbest songs that come to mind are Chris Janson -"Buy Me a Boat" and Toby Keith "Red Solo Cup". Makes me wanna puke!
