It's a libertarian song, the dope part is part and parcel of it, integral to the whole, sine qua non.

The alternative is to write and sing your own song.

Agreed. Despite popular belief the Redneck Family Tree has many branches- it's a way of life, a state of mind, not a place.

You guys in the South do not have a monopoly on "country boys".

I'm curious what some fuckstick from Massachusetts knows about being a country boy, atleast by my definition of such. It is probably a lot like the country boy from the city of Detroit.

just for clarification, I actually like the song and like Kid Rock, but being a fake cowboy/country boy doesn't do much for me. I know what a "country boy" is. YMMV


quoted to show how idiots on here seem to think the "country" equates to the south. Plenty of country up in our areas. Kid Rock is from Romeo, Michigan. Romeo is in a pretty rural area. Alot of farm land. So I would say Kid is pretty close to being from the "country".

Just another washed up artist trying to call himself country cause its what everyone is doin. I'm so sick of these Hollywood country artist. Its a lifestyle before its a brand of music for people. Like someone said there just doing what sells right now. Singing about it doesn't make you a country boy.

Out of curiosity have you ever LEFT Ms? I've covered 46 of the 48 states and 33% of the world and although Ms has the lock on a lot of stuff (the majority of it being undesirable as I dated 3 women from there years ago) being a "country boy" isn't one of them. Maybe trailer houses, poor education, and cars on blocks but you can find hill billies all over the damn planet. One of the biggest renecks I know is from Washington state, another 3 or 4 from Pa, one from Rhode Island who would rather hunt and fish than breathe.

I always get a kick out of people from cities with populations of 5 (all related) and a 28k connection thinking that anything north of them is obviously all shiny lights and Lexus cars.

And this video is a dupe, I posted it 2 months ago, love the song

I kinda feel the same way but at the same time, I'm not concerned enough with what someone else does to let it bother me. I personally have no use for it but I try to subscribe to the "live and let live" mentality otherwise I'd have a stroke just from shit I see every day. I guess if smoking a little pot is the worst thing he's doing, he's probably better off than most of the meth billies I work around on rigs daily.

That song sounds like Nickelback's "Rockstar" married Bon Jovi's "Dead or Alive" and gave the baby a dobro to play with.

Not bad, but I was sure I'd heard every part of it before.

Is he from the Boston area ? ( I dont know )

Massachusetts is a pretty big state , with an awfully lot of rural areas .

One doesn't necessarily need be from South of the Mason-Dixon to be a 'country-boy' ..........you cant automatically assume someone from New York , Michigan, or Massachusetts is going to dress/act like someone raised in Brooklyn , Detroit or Boston.

As much as many Southerners would like to think so , they absolutely do not have a monopoly on 'rednecks' , 'hicks' , 'cowboys' or 'country-boys' .


he is from the Springfield area.

longmeadow

while close to springfield, its WAY different
money in longmeadow

eta: the median household income in the town was $75,461, and the median family income was $87,742
not crazy money, but still

Before you all pass judgment on the guy (not the song) remember some times people lose there way and focus on life. I know I forgot the way I grew up and gave up on what I was taught by my father and it doesn't mean a thing in my life now.

If he's is true to the song then I'm sure he got a big wake up call from Hollywood life at some point figured out that he pissed away friends and family.

As far as him being a real country boy you all need to pull your heads out your asses. Just because someone sings or listens to rock has not one thing to do with it. You all act like you have to be born into it or something ignorant like that .
Hell most real country folks don't even know there country. Most of us had no idea when you go up north they don't put sugar in the tea or have fried chicken at the gas station

The one poster said it best he's one of us I don't care if you like the song but cut the guy some slack there are plenty of rednecks from Massachusetts I got one living across from me.

Honestly, we've never heard about this song before. Completely new!

Not a fan. Good message, bad music, whiny singer who probably knows about as much as me about being country (and I don't know jack about it).

"Country" is a commercialized, marketed product - just the same as emo, hipster, that 'alternative' debacle back in the 90s, punk, and dozens of others. The only reason there's no redneck section in Hot Topic is because someone decided that it's more "country" to shop at Wal*Mart instead.

This is why I'm not a country boy. I'm not a redneck. I refuse to ascribe to the lifestyle and the philosophy that I have to be purposefully ignorant.
I love shooting. I love fishing and hunting. I love taking a fast vehicle down a muddy trail, I love drinking beer, and I love my family. Not crazy about NASCAR, but whatever.
Despite my love for all most things "redneck," I am not one myself. Because it's a stupid label with no meaning.

If you guys want to pick up that banner and wave it proudly, go for it. But the rest of us think you're pretty ridiculous for championing such a commercialized, absurd cause.

I had that experience once... I went out to Arizona and I asked for sweet tea at a Denny's (out there for a paintball tournament) and they lady asked if I wanted raspberry or lemon....

I was like LOL WUT

I am a redneck. My father is too. That term has been around long before you decided it was commercialized. I'd even wager you don't have a fucking clue what it really means, or where it came from. To those of us that do, it does have meaning. It carries the pride of those of us that have come from humble beginnings, and fought to become a functional, valuable member of the working class.

You need to not speak of what you don't understand. Also, those of us that do wave the banner, don't give two shits about what you think. Have a nice day.

I think discussing this issue with someone who thinks that "assault rifles are impractical for self defense" is like debating nuclear power plant design with a drunk who lives in a refrigerator box. -Aimless

"Country" is a commercialized, marketed product - just the same as emo, hipster, that 'alternative' debacle back in the 90s, punk, and dozens of others. The only reason there's no redneck section in Hot Topic is because someone decided that it's more "country" to shop at Wal*Mart instead.

This is why I'm not a country boy. I'm not a redneck. I refuse to ascribe to the lifestyle and the philosophy that I have to be purposefully ignorant.
I love shooting. I love fishing and hunting. I love taking a fast vehicle down a muddy trail, I love drinking beer, and I love my family. Not crazy about NASCAR, but whatever.
Despite my love for all most things "redneck," I am not one myself. Because it's a stupid label with no meaning.

It's sort of a caricature of Country boy can survive. As if the writers sat down with their collective bong and said "Let's write something that will appeal to those inbred rednecks down south"

He did manage to tap into our collective subconscious to an extent, but it seems a little contrived.

Regardless, it's pretty cool that people are trying to cash in on our demographic and mindset.

I have a hard time criticizing any song that features guns and the Gadsden flag. The lyrics are good, but the the song is slow, drawn out and depressing.

Let me know when the CDB does a remake with a picked up tempo and some asskickin guitar, banjo and fiddle licks.

You're the one trolling with personal comments...

I find it quite interesting that this song has such stark paralells with gangster rap music.

Rap and Country have always been the sort of indigenous music styles of the underclass, urban and rural respectively. Both rely on southern dialects, and both are usually about very mundane stuff.

You don't hear much country music that addresses the themes of gangster rap though- carrying his nine with him, smoking weed, resenting authority.

It's really quite fascinating, and it's not something I'd ever have come across if not for reading this thread.

That's because it's not really country- Aaron Lewis is the lead singer for Staind


You know I was all about this guy until I found out he was a singer for such a douche band.

How about that, country is underclass and on par with rap.

What genre does the elite listen to in your house?

It started out confusing enough. There isnt much of a chorus, the verses seem to run into one another, and lets be honest, Lewis doesnt have what most would call a great voice. I dont suppose all of those Marlboro Reds help. .........and just when things seem like they couldnt be more of a clusterfuck, they bring (rolled) in the Possum , and that clouded the water up even further. It was just a clusterfuck. Just a clusterfuck.

But scince he mentions "9" and ".45" (and a the Possum) the majority of the membership here will download it to thier i-pods.


+1

I'm curious what some fuckstick from Massachusetts knows about being a country boy, atleast by my definition of such. It is probably a lot like the country boy from the city of Detroit.

just for clarification, I actually like the song and like Kid Rock, but being a fake cowboy/country boy doesn't do much for me. I know what a "country boy" is. YMMV


Do you really think that the South has a monopoly on rural living, rural/agricultural skills like hunting, fishing, farming, etc?
