2138 - Country music can be fun

I've always been one to slam country music as being "bwanga twanga...Better shut your face, buddy, before I ram this beer can up your nose". Most of it probably still is, but I have discovered that at least some can be fun.

I like the mystery novels of Kinky Friedman. He's a smartass even in relation to most of the genre, and that's saying something. I finally went poking around looking for some of his music, and found it - and while there's some of the typical country stuff (Sold American being the prototypical example), there's also some genuine fun there. I haven't listened to all of it yet, but Asshole from El Paso and They Ain't Makin' Jews Like Jesus Any More are worthy of Dr. Demento. Get Your Biscuits in the Oven and Your Buns in the Bed would be too, except it would get the studios bombed by angry feminists. Recommended.
