Wow.

I think this is even harder than my favorite song. I mean, I really like music. It’s hard for me not to be able to find something redeemable about a song that I hear, ya know? I’m sure there is also a lot of music out there I’d hate that I just don’t listen to, or that I turn off as soon as I hear it (thus guaranteeing that I have no idea what the song is to tell you that it’s my least favorite).

So. Let me think. My least favorite song should be a song I know that evokes a negative emotion.

OH! I got it!

Trace Adkins. “Honkey Tonk Badonkadonk.”

Oh, man. I hate this song so much I can’t even listen to it to write a running commentary on it.

As a general rule I dislike country music to begin with. I think that, for the most part, it’s much like pop music in that it’s a bunch of vapid entertainers with very little real talent that are propped up by the industry and some very talented songwriters and musicians. There are certainly exceptions. I’m a big fan of some of the older Country and Westerns stars (Patsy Cline, Johnny Cash, etc..) and I even like a few of the new crowd (Dixie Chicks, Garth Brooks), but for the most part I think it’s shit. Utter and complete shit.

This song embodies all of that to me. The main reason is because when my son was going through a serious country phase it was a song that came up often.

He has, for the most part, gotten over this. Thank the Flying Spaghetti Monster.
