also, country music sucks. happy labor day!
Its the sound of stupid. Its the sound of devolution, a regression to the previous mean. I used to complain about modern rock rehashing elements from the 60s, well these fools have been warming over the same piles of shit since the 1920s. Country music isn't a taste; its the default for people who never went on to develop taste.
Much like how AM radio is the default media and Dancing With the Stars and American Idol are the default television shows, its not an individualistic decision to occupy your time with these things. They are all provided in 99% of American households on a regular basis, for free, and require no thinking or effort to obtain. So country music is not a "taste" because that word infers self-developed individuality, something obtained only after applying some effort to deviate from the norm. Enjoying country music or these other things is more like enjoying a lobotomy or subconscious instruction than enjoying an art form.
