You can only sing along to the last two hits.

a guy raps with a twangy, nasal drawl in double-time about a ba-donk-a-donk with some such colored Solo cup in a truck with ground effects and a 7 foot suspension lift with double-decker KC lights and a never-used Warn wench, rollin' down a dirt road, going to that lake at Old Man Johnson's farm, on a hot, summer night...over the dying pleas of a steel guitar and you don't literally get sick to your stomach. -Jay White

  1. "but you've gotta admit that it's catchy." LOL! I have friend who uses that line to excuse every FGL song ever!

  2. My favorite is "You talk through an entire acoustic set." Drives me crazy!!! ;)

  3. You criticize others' musical taste on platforms like this with your nose in the air. Guess there's only room for one type of music, YOURS. #ignorancedisguisedaselevatedmusicaltaste Music is supposed to be a community that encourages creativity and collaboration, not this breed of snobbery. #turnedoff

  4. It hardly seems like I'm alone in my preferences, since most of these were written by other people. I'm not a music snob, I'm a music geek. I like lots of artists who aren't critically acclaimed. I just don't like it when tradition is completely swept aside by the broom of commerce.
