I have always been one of those metal heads that claims to listen to all musical genres--except for country. But in the past year, I've realized that classic country songs, with their imagery and energy, are pretty hard to dislike. Take David Allan Coe's "If That Ain't Country" for example. I was listening to this the other night and my first thought was, "Why the hell hasn't a metal band covered this song?"
"The old man was covered in tattoos and scars/some he got in prison and others in bars/ sometimes he'd get drunk and mean as a rattlesnake/and if that ain't country, I'll kiss your ass." Yes.
