We don't have anything against Country music. We just can't stand YOUR music, Meade.

No. Many love country music. Many also love rock and other genres. You have a right to your opinion, and that's all it is.

There's good and bad in every genre....."good" and "bad" are mostly a matter of opinion.

Degrading other music isn't going to help you sell more of your music. Most musicians I've known, and I've known a few, don't go around putting down the work of other musicians.

Brian,
I didn't know Margaret Meade was so vocal about music preference. Did she say that to the Samoans or the the Papa New Guineans?

Most current country music is "bland Rock and Pop music".

Today's 'country' music has replaced disco as the most bland predictable genre of produced music out there and it will continue to get worse....Hank Williams was country music and Hank is gone....

I was working with a "new country" music fan this summer, and I have to say - it's pretty much pop/rock with redneck vocals. I can dig proper country music, but new country doesn't do it for me. On the other had, the post-grunge rock scene seemed to bring in an odd mix of country and soul to rock vocal styles, which also kind of sucks (to my taste). Either one kind of is hell on earth to me, but I'd think in Hell they play heavy metal? Except, for some of us, that would be Heaven . . .

To each his own. Everyone? What I think sucks is when people use absolutes, like 'the best' or 'the worst'. Music is art and art is subjective. If it cannot be measured then you cannot say what is the best or worst. I suppose you can measure music buy album sales, download numbers and concert revenue, but really music is personal. Personally, I am a rock music fan, but there are genres of rock that I don't care for. Pop music is hit or miss, for me pop music is about liking individual songs. As for country, I like some country and some country artists.

What makes me crazy is when people think their opinion is the right one and the only one. I don't believe you're familiar with all rock music and shouldn't make such a generalization. I do realize that country music takes a beating often on these discussions and I think that is just their personal opionions. I may be guilty also because I don't like rap music and often say all rap music sucks. However, we all know that many people like rap.

Good post!

There's a lot of variety in country, rock and all genres. In fact, some music is a mixture of several genres. I try not to say I don't like something unless I've heard it.

Anybody who says "[This genre] is the worst kind of music" is too dumb to analyze music on its own merits.

"Everyone suggests country music is the worst"? "Everyone" in Meade "E.P. Haufe" Skelton's deluded little mind, I suppose. If anything, hip-hop gets far more blind hatred in here, and similarly by people who don't understand it or haven't taken a close listen to it.

I love many different versions of this Pop and Rock and Country music you speak of. The best music is normally well written songs with catchy melodies and beautiful harmonies to back it up. Country music really is just folk music with a southern twang-- but it is often maligned because of its "heart on the sleeve" nature of the music, making it seem too easy and not nearly as challenging a listening experience as some might like. No matter-- some of the best pop and rock songs are the simplest and easiest to remember.

Its true- new country music does borrow far too much from pop music to be called pure "country"-- I was listening to a Taylor Swift concert last night on VH1 and there was nothing remotely 'country' about it, besides the Nashville locale. Ms. Swift is about as far removed from Loretta Lynn (you're really lookin at country with Mrs. Lynn in my opinion) as any other singer/songwriting gal of the 21st century is (eg. Fiona Apple, Shelby Lynne). Swift plays her own instrument, which immediately brings her to a new level of respect in my estimation- but she really is just a fine musician, singer, and songwriter as well.

But Taylor Swift as 'Country'? Well, you tell me what makes her fit that label.

While I agree that most horrible country music trys to incorporate pop-rock genre style, I do not agree that either music is better than the other. Now we all have our opinions, which is why some people are into heavy metal (something I will never understand) and teeny boppers (something I used to like and now can't stand). I think that there is some pop-rock (with a tinge of screamo, even) in which the band knows how to be creative with their instruments, write introspective lyrics and have good voices to boot. The same thing goes with Country artists.
Someone like Taylor Swift, who can write a "hit" song has a long reach when it comes to genre spanning could do with some singing lessons and some evolution in what she writes her songs about. I would say something similar about Avril Lavigne. I like some of both of their songs, but I could do with listening to someone else sing the same song. Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, P!nk, or Stevie Nicks are better singers, who have written popular songs in all types of genres, who I'd rather hear singing some of the "hits" of Swift or Lavigne. I'm sure people would agree and disagree with me here.
In effect, I think it is in the realm of every artist to write a spectacular song with any kind of genre as the inspiration. I also think that its not out of this same realm to say that the same artist can write a song that flops.

Anyway, there is NO best genre of music, just that each of us has our individual tastes. If you cannot accept that then like I said, you're simply trying to stir up trouble or...

Country, rock and blues can be good or bad, but no matter which genre Meade Skelton tries, he will always suck.

You can keep changing your name, you'll still be Meade "E.P. Haufe, RVACountryLover" Skelton. We'll make sure people know you're plugging your own products and shamelessly praising your own crap to the stars under the name of third parties. Unethical promotion deserves to be demonized.
