People just have different tastes. I, personally, can't understand why most people love songs that have absolutely no reality whatsoever besides what's featured on "reality" television shows, but that's my own taste, and my own opinion on it as well. I love country music because it's facing reality, and for the overall has an attitude that says, "Alright, listen, we realize that most of you people don't give a flying s**t on fire of what we have to say, but frankly we don't care. So if you don't like it, turn the damn station over or just plug your ears."

I love country music. not the old slow ones but the pop rock ones. I think it depends on how you're raised to like wat music. I don't why people like punk rock. theres just people screaming. Not even screaming to the music, just screaming words. how is that likable?

I mean there is quite a bit of it I enjoy like Dock Boggs, Johnny Cash, John Doe, there's still quite a bit I don't like.

Why does Bad Moon Rising always sound awful when people cover it?

There are only a few country singers I can stand now. I stopped listening to it when the radio station decided Miley Cyrus was a thing to play. I found what I consider better music after that, so it was okay.

So some people don't like country, so what? What they like is what they like. Just the same way people look at me like I'm a freaking disease when I order a salad and don't use any salad dressing. That's just how I like it. Personally I like all kinds of music. So yeah! =]

I find it funny when people complain that country music is repetitive with every song the same (dog leaving, girl breaking up with them, etc) but that same person listens to, say, rap music-which can be labelled equally repetitive by 'haters' saying every rap song is about 'gangs, guns, and hookers'.

Personally, I don't like any type of music more or less then any other type, nor do I have favourite bands. I judge every song by its own merit to me at any given time. Sometimes I need a sad song about dogs dying, or a techno beat to dance to, or something to rock out to. Why must we create labels for ourselves, and segregate ourselves by what kind of music we do or don't like? Don't people have enough things to fight over?

I think it's because the people who tend to listen to it are stuck up. And because most of the songs tend to be about the same stuff. Plus, it can be very preachy/religious, and some people aren't down with that. The fans can be total assholes. I got yelled at for not taking my hat off or putting my hand over my heart for the Pledge/National Anthem...Or the people I've run into have been all right wing conservative, and that's annoying when you're a left wing, lesbian, liberal.

Personally, I have a huge soft spot for country because I grew up on it. I'm going absolutely nuts over the fact that Clay Walker is going to be doing the National Anthem at opening day for baseball here in Houston. Love me some Clay Walker.

Err. Most punk isn't screaming into the microphone. What kind of punk are you listening to? Emo bullshit that ISN'T punk?
Different opinions, I suppose. But I never understood why people "hate" different genres of music. They all build off of one another, if you think about it.

I think this phenomenon is easy to explain since it's generally the people who like The same pseudo-alternative crap who seem they need to let people know they hate country and rap in order to be invited back to all the cool kids parties.
I think it's more the stereotypical idea people have of country fans. Usually when people find out someone likes country music, people assume they're stupid and close-minded. I dunno, man.
