More Monday Memes: Keith Urban, Sturgill Simpson, Hick Hop

  1. There is a particular hick-hop artist who did indeed combine bad rapping and country stereotypes into one giant sharknado mess. Unfortunately, though, that particular artist is now venerated by most of those country traditionalists who should be rightfully criticizing rather than praising his garbage "music". I'm referring to none other than the Nickelback of country music himself - Alan Jackson. From living up to country stereotypes like "It's Alright to Be a Redneck" (the title should tell you all you need to know), "I Still Like Bologna" (imagine the typical bro-country dreck, but a 4 and a half minutes long), "Jim and Jack and Hank" (aka Achy Breaky 3), and especially that stupid 9/11-exploiting song where he couldn't tell the difference between Iraq and Iran, to practically inventing hick-hop, bro-country, metro-bro, and the non-country elements that have replaced traditional country sounds (especially hip-hop, R&B, EDM and hair metal), country music destroyer Alan Jackson truly fits the "hick-hop artist" in the double soda pour meme above. And speaking of bad rapping, it has been proven that Jackson did indeed cover multiple rap songs in concert, specifically
    * Akon - Don't Matter
    * Wiz Khalifa - We Dem Boyz ( video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QFOtWpul3ZY )
    * Post Malone - Psycho
    * Boney M. - Daddy Cool
    * Soulja Boy - Turn My Swag On
    * Future - Mask Off
    * Flo Rida - Whistle
    * T.I. - Whatever You Like
    * Big Sean ft. Nicki Minaj - Dance (A$$)
    * Lil Wayne - Love Me
    * Drake - Make Me Proud
    * Offset - Ric Flair Drip
    * Waka Flocka Flame - Hard in da Paint
    * Shaquille O'Neal - (I Know I Got) Skillz
    * Fetty Wap - Jugg
    Alan Jackson is truly a combination of the worst of country music - the stereotype that country music is made for racist, ignorant, Libertarian, trailer-dwelling rednecks, and the previously mentioned non-country influences (again, which Jackson himself introduced into mainstream country) that have largely replaced traditional country influences. If there was a dead uprising of country legends in retribution for what Jackson has done to country music, Johnny Cash, Hank Sr., Marty Robbins, and Merle Haggard would've gone straight for the Nickelback of country music himself and slapped him like how Moe slapped Curly in the Three Stooges.
