A Scary Meme

  1. What a joke. Chances are neither Florida Georgia Line nor the Nickelback of country music know who Hank Williams is. In the case of Alan Jackson (the Nickelback of country music), Jackson probably only found out who Hank Williams really was when his label made him record "Midnight in Montgomery". And speaking of Florida Georgia Line, they're just the apocalyptic aftermath of what Jackson did to country music. Like I said before, Jackson basically invented bro-country, not only making country music the laughing stock that it is today (like in "It's Alright to Be a Redneck", "I Still Like Bologna", and especially that stupid 9/11-exploiting song where he couldn't tell the difference between Iraq and Iran) but also introducing the various non-country influences (such as hip-hop, 80's hair metal, Drake style R&B, and EDM) which have largely replaced traditional country influences within mainstream country. And Jackson all but lives up to that accusation when he covers multiple hip-hop and R&B songs (alongside an ABBA song for some obviously non-country reason) in concert, specifically:
    * Akon - Don't Matter
    * Wiz Khalifa - We Dem Boyz ( video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QFOtWpul3ZY )
    * Young Money - BedRock
    * Boney M. - Daddy Cool
    * Soulja Boy - Turn My Swag On
    * Soulja Boy - I Got that Sauce
    * 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
    The only scary thing here is how many traditional country fans, despite their hatred for the pop country crap that Jackson helped spawn, venerate Jackson, the man who started all of that, as some sort of "traditional country singer". However, anyone with a functioning pair of ears would say otherwise. Like I said, Florida Georgia Line (and Luke Bryan, Sam Hunt, Kane Brown, Dan + Shay, etc.), along with the fact that pop singer Bebe Rexha holds the record for the longest running number one country song at 50 weeks while fellow pop singer Justin Bieber currently has the number one country song, are all the apocalyptic aftermath of what Alan Jackson (the Nickelback of country music) did to this genre. If the music video for "Midnight for Montgomery" was real, the ghost of Hank Williams would slap Jackson like how Moe slapped Curly in the Three Stooges.
