Have we heard anything from David Allen Coe?

John Buck 41: Hank 2 > Hank 1 or Hank 3


You could make the argument that he's better than Hank III- you'd be wrong, but you could make that argument. If you think he's better than his father, you're just wrong, and you should feel bad. In his short life, Hank Sr. wrote some of the all-time classics of country music; Hank Jr. on the other hand wrote a few halfway decent shiatkicking songs that were ultimately not too memorable. It's simply no contest.

Noam Chimpsky: Why do conservatives love the USA? I can understand loving the soldiers who fought and sacrificed to protect the freedoms you enjoy in your state, but why such blind love for some union apart from its military function? If it's the Constitution, your state probably has a better one, and the US Constitution is pretty much meaningless at this point, anyway. Better to love one's state and tolerate the union to the extent it remains tolerable. No use pretending the Union represents your ideals when it doesn't.

This is Obama's America, now.

stoli n coke: exyankee: stoli n coke: exyankee: It's funny how Rolling Stone will dedicate this much space to a racist has been, but will barely acknowledge Rush. Yes, I went there.

Because Rush fans are insufferable whiners.

And Hank Williams Jr. is a model citizen?

No. He says things that will stir up controversy and get page views, which is a plus for Rolling Stone.

Hardcore Rush fans I've known do nothing but complain because, while I think they're talented, I don't consider them the best band ever.


Oh, I don't think they are the best band ever, just the best still operating. The best will always be....

You see the solution then. Rush should say that Romney hates America and would like to piss down the throats of all its poor people. MORE PRESS!

Maybe not too memorable to you. OTOH, I can only name a handful (literally) of Hank 1 songs and (literally) none of Hank 3 songs.

Not my problem. If you like Hank 1 or Hank 3 better, fine. Don't matter to me.

America is only exceptional when Republicans control the government. Otherwise, it's a weak, festering hellhole continually on the brink of collapse.

TommyymmoT: It's easy to play five instruments if you don't play any of them well.

Also, you'd be amazed at what a competent engineer can do with an utter pile cacophonous drivel.


Yup. Grab a sampler, hire a wizard drum editor, set up AutoTune, and get at least two or three repetitions of every unique bar on each instrument so that you can hack and quantize together minimally competent performances, given enough time in front of the console and preferred editing software.

Honestly, I'm actually tired of hearing too-perfect performances in music, and not just the Top 40 hits either. It's enlightening to listen to recordings from the era before multitrack recording (never mind digital editing) existed, and performances were recorded live off the floor. Everyone actually had to be able to play or sing, often playing other people's compositions learned that morning. I'm sure many more full takes were needed, and major flubs would have wasted a take, but at least it sounded naturally imperfect. Contemporary popular music of many genres has almost entered an auditory uncanny valley; it's almost neat to listen to, but the lack of imperfections is kind of uncomfortable and weird.

What was this about? Hank Williams Jr. believes every FW: FW: fw: FW: FW: FW: fw: that comes his way? Idiot. Next?

Like a typical Repub (these days), he can fill an interview with talking points about how much he hates the president, yet utterly fails to articulate any actual REASONS. Look, I don't love everything about Obama, but if anyone asked me what I don't like about him, I could actually list actions I disagree with and back myself up with facts. The right wing in this country has lost its gotdamn mind.

Smelly McUgly: This proves that I'm bigoted.

Honestly, the guitar should have been your first clue. There are plenty of non-idiots that wear cowboy hats, they're called "people that work outside" (generally results in either cowboy hats or hard hats of one kind or another). But there's never been a musician with a political opinion worth listening to in the history of the world.

Yeah but, why do you think he hates America?

Oh, you know I don't know. I don't know about that but it's kind of obvious. I guess when you take a tour, a world tour, to apologize for America. He did that, you know?

The quotes in the article are comedy gold.

Q: "Yeah but, why do you think he hates America?"
Hank Williams Jr.: "Oh, you know I don't know. I don't know about that but it's kind of obvious."

The cartoonish Obama that lives inside his head hates America, so therefore it must be true.

Political opinion is often most effectively expressed through music. That's happened all throughout history. There's too many examples to list. Just the Vietnam era is too many to list.

I gotta think Obama hears this, shakes his head, and goes on pressing for the things he believes will help America, pretty much the same as when Bush heard criticism (although an entire news network was dedicated to praising Bush and now demonizing Obama).

If you're referring to protest songs, it should be noted that those are useful precisely because they're oversimplified to the point of stupidity and even an idiot could get 'em. So they're great for being what amounts to slogans. The singers/writers themselves, though, not only do they rarely have any knowledge more in-depth than the simple shiat in their songs, they're usually so dumb that they're under the mistaken impression that they're being subtle.

What I'm saying here is that your point in no way counters mine.

Also "there's too many examples to list" is something you say after providing a few (preferably the most high-profile or obvious) examples, using it on its own doesn't work. The ghost of your third grade English teacher told me to let you know that through my psychic powers. I mean, not really necessary in this case because you're arguing orthogonal to me instead of counter, but in general, y'know.
