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

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

Every country artist sounds the exact same!

No they don't stupid, learn to listen more. You sound as if you are deaf. For example Brad paisley, Keith urban and Jason alderman have completely different voices. You are so wrong. You may think you sound cool by saying "oh that all country singers sound the same" but guess what it actually makes you look really dumb and stupid and you would feel sorry for saying such a retarded thing like that. - JamiePrice

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. - PeeledBanana

Yeah cause all pop songs are so different and rap isn't all the same trash.

2 Southern Accents

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.

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

It seems that having an accent is required to be a country star

Sounds like alcoholic chickens choking on beer bottles. - AlphaQ

3 Alcoholic References

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

This makes me wanna punch Sam Hunt and break his nuts. - AlphaQ

4 All They Sing About Is Love and Tractors

Just try a little more variety country singers!

This is already on the list!

No they don't. That isn't true and you know it. - JamiePrice

There was even a band called The Tractors there should be a band called The britches or the Wii little bits too..lol

5 It's Stereotypical

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

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

6 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

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

Ever heard of merle haggard, vince gill? doubt it!

7 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.

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

no thanks

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.

Who ever put this here is Crazy!

This is the most absurd thing I have ever heard of. If someone commits suicide over country music there is a problem..

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.

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.

OH YEAH

12 Country Stations

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'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.

14 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

15 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

16 Country Rap

Refer to Luke Bryan, Kick The Dust Up

Pop wrapping is any better at least they have manners

18 Boring Melodies
