Aaron Lewis, "Country Boy"

Song: Aaron Lewis, "Country Boy"
Context: The insufferable fakeness of this terrible song is the focal point of a piece in this week's issue. The Tea Party bullshit and the sample of the "Battle Hymn of the Republic" at the end are only part of the reason why -- picturing this nu metal dbag on a tractor actually bothers me more. Ironic that Lewis loves 'Merica so much since he's pretty much the embodiment of everything wrong with this country. Aaron Lewis - "Country Boy" by thecollectivesounds

Alright ya son of a bitch. I get it, you obviously have something again Aaron and Staind to completely go out of your fucking way to completely talk shit about him by writing an article on one of the top country songs in 2011. If you don't like his music, don't fuckin listen to it. You're exactly the person who Staind made they're song 'Wannabe' dedicated too, a person who sits in their mothers basement on his computter talking shit about bands. Go fuck your self, don't ever talk shit about Aaron Lewis or America again b/c I guarantee we'll kick your countries unpatriotic ass any day.

Aaron I hope to god you see this, you've inspired me in many ways! I listen to you every day man. Come back home to Massachusetts!!

Every lame musician that can't make it in their genre go and pretend to be country.  And country these days is really Pop- Suprise!  I can appreciate Hank III though, he's the closest thing I've seen to real country lately.  But then I work for a livin and ain't got time to look up every freakin artist to come down the pike.  But I know what sounds good with a beer

Cizmar-YOU sir are what's wrong with this country. Liberal socialist piece of crap that wants to tell everyone what THEY should do with their lives. I have a quote from another COUNTRY song for you "you do your thing, I'll do mine". Raina said it too perfectly. Someone "country" loves this country and is proud to declare it. I had no idea who Aaron Lewis was until I heard this song. When I looked him up, I was surprised to find out he sang with Staind. Obviously I liked the song enough to look him up. HE'S PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN, LEAVE HIM THE HELL ALONE! Constitutionalists will save our great country from total destruction.

If you weren't born and raised in America how are you even part of this discussion? You know nothing of this lifestyle just like I know nothing of your previous lifestyle in the old country your from. If you think Aaron Lewis can't write good music, get off your ass and try and do it yourself. he embodies everything a country song should contain. Go move out to the sticks, get yourself a rifle and become a self reliant civilian. Only then can all you city raised people know what is involved in writing country music.

Listen, when the Constitutionalists come to take back this Republic from the corporatist interests, neocons and progressive scumbags who are the true domestic enemies of the Constitution, you, my friend, had better be on the right side or be prepared to get the hell out. One way ticket....

liberals get their authority from themselves; they're so inteligent they know exactly how you should live your own life. they'll even implement laws that have nothing to do with governing. we're almost 15 tril in debt! obama alone has created a 1/4 of that in his first term! spending and growing gov. is never the answer. anyway, you guys keep trying to control people and tell them what thoughts they should think. tea partiers however, usually, get their authority from God. God communicated how we ought to strive to live and we try our best to do that. We should only be encouraging eachother to make good choices, not forcing a subjective choice from the goverment. Most liberals hate the mention of God, why?

I'll start off by saying that I have no issue with your disliking this artist, this song, or your considering it a 'true' country song. Thankfully we're all different in appearence, talent, what we appreciate, etc, which is what makes one man's trash another man's treasure. Honestly, 'true' country is the one genre I have never been able to appreciate. The likes of Kenny Rogers, Crystal Gayle, Brad Paisley, and Carrie Underwood being as country as I can appreciate. And, my best guess would be that such artists music would be considered more like pop-country music. So, since I love this song, I would have already bet that it wouldn't be deemed 'true' country, being more like the aforementioned (rhythmic songs sung by those w/strong, actual singing voices).

What bothers me isn't even your full review, since although it wasn't a good one, it was surprisingly rather objective. It wasn't personally scathing, biased, and just ignorantly biggoted as this (I guess I'll call it a 'pre-review'), and as what you say in defense of this in the following comments, are. It's obvious that you have disdain for people with piercings and/or tattoos, as well as for Northeasterners and successful nu-metal artists. You not only call the artist a piece of shit in the comment section, but your response to a commentor replying that you were the piece of shit was, "Let me ask you something, Luvaaron: Have I ever had an eyebrow ring? Am I covered in dumb tattoos? Have I ever been the singer of a shitty nu-metal band?" Really, sir? Really? Those things not only have absolutely no relevence as to whether or not one is a piece of shit, but I'm betting most would argue that one whom claims to judge another so superficially is actually acting like a piece of shit. You actually stated, "...picturing this nu metal dbag on a tractor actually bothers me more..." than your assumption of his tea-party beliefs, your dislike for his use of a sample of the "Battle Hymn of the Republic," or any of the actual content of the song of his that you are reviewing lol. I think that, right there, would make one realize that maybe they can't possibly be impartial enough to review anything regarding this artist.

I'd like to add, I believe that you (like most) confuse southern/western with country. Despite WHERE country music began, one does not have to be from the south or mid-west to be 'country' or to live 'country.' To be 'country' denotes many things, but mostly living in/growing up in the sticks...the COUNTRY. Wouldn't it be more correct to say 'country' people are the salt-of-the-earth people, generally living in the sticks, who know and help their neighbors, live off the land, and/or work with their hands, hunt, fish, drive trucks, etc, not those that wear 10-gallon western hats and cowboy boots, or ride horses, or have a southern twang. The latter would be south-western traits, would they not? And, anyone can posess those traits. A rich Englishman can be an expert horse rider, yet as country as a NYC housewife. A vegan, PETA member that's a compter programmer who grew up in a metro southern area would most likely have a southern twang, may wear cowboy boots and/or a big cowboy hat, and could possibly ride a horse, but would most likely not be considered a 'country.' So, if a New Englander lived most of his life in backwoods areas of New England (or Australia, Canada, etc.), knows and helps his neighbors, hunts, fishes, and yes, has a tractor and even drives himself in his Ford Pickup truck to and from his New England shows, he can't be 'country,' because he once had an eyebrow piercing, has tattoos, listened to and made music of a genre other than country, and now has money? So, true 'country' folk don't ever get tats, listen to or make any type of music other than country, could never have had a piercing (no matter how young they were when they got it), and are all poor? I'm betting there are a lot of 'country' folk that would beg to differ. Your presuppositions about, and obvious bias toward this particular artist appears to make you unequivocably unfit to impartially judge his artistry...and, definitely his character. I truly hope that you think about how unprofessionally you handled this review, due to your personal presumptions about the artist, the next time a review for someone else you have such bias towards comes across your desk, making you act like a professional by passing on reviewing their artistry.

Apparently Martin Cizmar has nothing better to do with his life. Aaron Lewis is an amazing vocalist & songwriter. If you don't like what you're seeing or listening to...change the damned channel. STAIND/Aaron Lewis fans are about to rain hell upon you, Cizmar. Good luck at your next job...Because you are no writer, either!

Like Aaron Lewis' hero George Bush once said... BRING 'EM ON.

This is a sick parody of country music but an ass ugly New Englander with a fucking pierced eyebrow. Sickening. His bullshit country project is incredibly offensive to people who enjoy real country music and understand the music is about the life real salt of the earth people live, not some redneck political agenda.

And to distort someone's vocals to make him sound like a fucking Johnny Cash impersonation speaking as the Devil in his song? The Cash family ought to sue his ass til he's crashing on the floor of your trailer, Nhhurtfan. One, it's just ripping Cash off. Two, Cash was a religious man and depicting him as the devil is very offensive.

I'd like to see Willie Nelson sit Lewis down and talk to him for a bit. He'd convince Aaron to go back to singing shitty Korn knock off songs instead of mocking a genre of music he professes to love.

Hey, get the hell out of the United States. You would have done better by simply reviewing the song in the first place, which is good by the way, than bringing some ignorant political bullshit you apparently know nothing about. Maybe if you weren't such a propagandized progressive "intellectual" trash, you would know your own ass from a hole in the ground.

Listen, Missy, I know my George Jones. I've reviewed a George Jones concert and I have a number of his records... Lewis distorted him so badly you can't even hear his voice. He sounds like Cash. That's EVEN WORSE. Disrespecting two legends at once!

And Here's my Jones review...
