I'm a big Nirvana fan. Them and the Grateful Dead are my two favorite bands. Kindof opposite sides of the spectrum.

But I never much cared for Pearl Jam or Alice in Chains. Im not sure why.
Eddie Vedder is only understood by sea animals.

For some reason, lowercase words and missing album artwork piss me the **** off.
Totally. I hate when I down load a song and it has the wrong artist as having done it. I'm very anal about the whole thing.

How can you like Johnny Cash but not country music? He sang about pretty much the same stuff these guys are singing about today. Getting drunk, falling in love, etc. Country music is great. My favorite music is punk rock and country comes right in there in second. It's the same as punk rock just with a different type of guitar.

Two guys in Green Man suits caught the attention of the cameras covering the Preds/Canucks game in Vancouver last night. They were sitting beside the Nashville penalty box and had several players chuckling at their antics.

I'm willing to bet it's the weird inflections on the vocals. That's what keeps me from liking country.

More than just a guitar. You cant compare Johnny Cash and todays country music. Totally different. Its like Rap. Old Rap, A tribe Called quest, NWO, etc etc. compared to Lil wayne? Its not the same.

Thats pretty much it, the songwriting also. Talking about love and getting drunk is pretty much in every genre of music, its all how you write about it. Johnny Cash = Talented. Country Artists today? C'mon, talking about your tractors and riding horses?

EDIT: Im not going to argue about it really... All music is solid, I just like some more than others. END

That's like a few country guys from the 70's. Guys today don't sound anything like that.

Of course you can. What is different about Johnny Cash and today's country? Johnny Cash sings songs about getting drunk, falling in love, God, and other "country" stuff. That's pretty much what guys today are singing about. There are some songs that stray from that, but for the most part its about drinking, fighting, and ****ing. Just like punk rock (though punk rock doesn't involve much God talk, unless it's NOFX talking about how there is no God).

People like you are so clueless about music. I've had numerous friends like you that now love country music. I get in their car....92.5 on the radio, always.

Most people start to enjoy it as they get older. Could be why some of the younger posters on here dont like it. Not saying im oldbut still, i've liked it since i was a little kid.

I'm just going out on a limb here but I would say the difference is Country music has a lot more of that horrible twangy guitar sound than Cash. Also, far to many country songs have lyrics that are are literal stories. I don't think most of Cash's songs suffer from that.

Id rather get a root canal then listen to country music

Most people like you are clueless about music that think EVERYONE should like country music. I cant stand 95% of country music. Now can i tolerate some of the songs yes, are some of them good, yes. But ill throw in some Slayer or Iron Maiden instead.

And the only time 92.5 would EVER be on my radio is bc my dad borrowed my car. 98.1 > 92.5

The outlaw country movement of the 1960s is entirely removed from the Nashville scene that dominates music today. I could go into a long explanation of the many, many reasons why but, seriously, just take my word for it. Corporate Nashville has dominated country music since the 1980s and very little remains as to what country music once was. Sure, there are still some amazing alt-country acts (Ryan Adams, Wilco) but mainstream country is just, well, vapid. It's popular for the same reason that Nickelback is... it appeals to the lowest common denominator and doesn't require much brain power.

And, to be honest, and I'm not trying to be mean, but if you think that Johnny Cash just sang about stereotypically country topics then you aren't well-versed in his songwriting style or career.

Well said Val. Taylor Swift and all her ilk? Please... pure, unadulterated crap.

Most of Cash's songs (and most of the best songs of any genre) are stories - based on love or love gone wrong.

I can think of one country song in the past 20 years that refers to a tractor. One.

You guys need to research some Waylon, Merle, Hank, even Kristoffersen, and get back to me and tell me about tractors.

Indeed. Cash was a bad***, not some pop singer with twangier vocals. That's why most punk rockers will tip their caps to Cash while reviling the modern country music "scene".

If anything, the soul of 60's country music lives on in modern rockabilly and psychobilly, rather than these Billboard "cowboys". In my opinion.
