I got in to a deep discussion over this very topic with my friend Jason and his woman, who are country lover's. And who is now in possession of a very loud boat system. You can see my concern. LOL

IMO there is a time and place for every type of music.

Example, You would not play Death metal music at your mom's funeral. You would not play classical music at a Metalica concert. You would not play
"Hitler's Greatest Hits" at the local Jewish Community center. Ok that was a little extreme, Im sorry. But you get the point,

"YOU DONT PLAY COUNTRY MUSIC WHILE PARTYING ON THE WATER". IMO there is a place to play country music, Its called a bar, These bars are located in safe places (in the sticks) better know as BFE. Where if the sound of country music spills out and on to the street it wont hurt anyone else. Kind of like how they test nuclear weapons. Out in remote locations.

Jason and his woman were defending country music vigorously, sighting how country music is the most popular music around. And how more people listen to country music than all other music put together. Bla Bla Bla. And how its fun to know the words and sing along , I almost wanted to throw up. Harold played a country song on his boat the song went like this" barbecued chicken and aluminum foil as long as I have enough for gas and oil", It was the gayest most lame song ever, Is this they type of sing along they are talking about. The nightmare of that song is as you see still stuck in my head. I said if you use that theory them Mc Donald's is the best restraunt in the world and NASCAR is the best sport. Just because lots of people like it doesn't mean it's good.

I knew Jason and I would not see eye to eye on this subject so I decided to install a remote cut off switch in his boat so that if he decided he wanted to annoy me with country music he can be put on MUTE.

not that I am a fan of country music, (unless it is old, Johnny, Waylon, etc) but you think listening to stuff like "bitches and ho's" (you get the idea) sounds better on the water? I for one don't, but that is just my opinion.

It's all about what you enjoy.....

Some could say Rap does not belong in the boat, but on some gang infested street somewhere....

If you want people to respect your lifestyle, you need to respect theirs. Untie your boat and move away if it irks you that bad...

Grant that was the best post I've seen in a while. I think you should have had this coversation with Jason before you put the system in!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I like the kill switch... maybe with a keypad.

Grant you are right about country...

IMO, county is popular because chicks dig it and dudes act like they dig it because chicks dig it.

But, regarding Metallica and Classical Music, this is a great concert on DVD...

Metallica - S & M with the San Francisco Symphony (1999)

metal

Um... Metallica did that.

As a listener of many different types of music, I'm going to have to disagree. I'm not hard core into country, but there are some country songs and albums that I would put up on par with some of my best hard rock albums.

One of my fondest "cranked up loud country" memories is when we were in Havasu many years ago and were getting the boat ready to put on the water. My little brother had just gotten this insane system put in his Toyota truck. He opened up the doors and lit up "Much Too Young (To Feel This Damn Old)" by Garth Brooks at full volume and turned the heads of every person within a half mile. 'Til this day I can't listen to that song on anything but full volume. Good stuff...Yeeeeeeaaaaahhhhaaaahhhh!

Not to hijack, but if you're looking for Metallica and classical, check out Apocalyptica's first album (Plays Metallica by Four Cellos). Here's a link to a sample of "Master of Puppets." There's more at www.apocalyptica.com.

More good stuff! See, I told you I like many different types of music! :-)

OUCH!!!!!!!
That obvious huh? I am not really a "country fan". I just like different types of music, country included. I do not know all the words or singers, but I can sit back and listen to a Garth Brooks song (although that was a while back) or a Kenny Chesney song (like the Buffet grove he is doing now).

Living in Nashville, it's a given!!

Grant, this sure hits home. Every time my wife and I go to the lake/river, she wants her country crap playing on the boat. I'll put ONE cd in the 10 disk along w/my headbanger music. When the country cmes on, the volume somehow gets real low and I cant figure how to turn it up-until the good stuff comes on...lol...thanks for the laughs

I wish I HAD a big fat stereo to play country music on my boat ......I've threatened to put "In the Mood" by Glen Miller on the first time out when I get one ...

Thomas---Were you talkin' bout music or passengers??

Swass, are you denying that you know who Garth Brooks is??? How many people can honestly say they do not know "Friends in Low Places". I cringe now, but that song was HUGE in the day

This brings up why I will be playing the XM on the boat this summer. Whatever mood I am in, I can play on the boat. Also includes when the kids are on the boat, I can play music for them. When it is just the guys, perhaps the Rhyme or RAW will come on

Which song , "Low Places"? For me, the song just got overplayed and heard one too many drunks singing along to it... I can still listen to it, just not like before...

It's not wrong, but that doesn't make it right! Hey, maybe that can be the name of a country song? :-)

Actually, that's a pretty decent song, but it's been beaten to death by radio and wedding DJ's.

Ever notice that heavy metal sounds better if you rock your head back and forth?

I think country is pretty opposite... it sounds better if there is nothing going on within or around you head/brain. :-) j/k

I can stand the odd song here and there, but there's no room for it otherwise on my boat, same applies to gangsta rap. Besides I want to do everything to discourage the local drunk redneck from trying to party with us.

I completely disagree! I love all music and listen to it all on the water, but Country music gets me in the mood to have fun and throw back some social sparklers (beer) and just enjoy life.

I love rap and rock and listen to it while im riding but also nothing says lets have fun like country music.

well said man...my cousin's best friend has a $45k truck with 2 12" Alpines and he blasts country music. Its a shame. I absolutely hate the simple guitar riffs and gay lyrics that they call country. Johnny Cash is a real country singer, not the made up poon's on CMT.

Right on to that socalgrl79, I listen to just about anything there's not 1 style of music that I love all the songs, I like a little bit of this and a little bit of that, just depends what mood I'm in. Jamming in the car or boat rap/rock/pop...in the keys a little bit of jimmy b. on a long trip a bit of country. As long as your not bugging the heck out of other people listen to whatever you wanna.

My boat plays,

Aaron Tippen
Dwight Yokam
Garth
Travis Tritt
Brooks and Dunn
George Straight
Willie
Johnny Cash
Clint Black
Chris Ledou

If you wine about it... it will be played louder, and longer!

I have to admit I don't like country while riding, it's better suited to chillin with a beer at the end of the day.

Hey Amy,

Us country lovers are a heck of a lot better to the women we meet in a country bar than any guy you'll talk to in a meat market hip hop club.Just food for thought.

Country doesn't get my juices flowing neither does house music (Grant) but IMO if it's on his boat and that's what he likes then that is the time and the place. Now if he was trying to slip that in on your system that's a different story.

"Jason and his woman were defending country music vigorously, sighting how country music is the most popular music around. And how more people listen to country music than all other music put together."

Here's a list of the 10 best selling artists of all time.

1. The Beatles- 166.5 million albums sold
2. Elvis Presley- 117.5m
3. Led Zeppelin- 106m
4. Garth Brooks- 105m
5. The Eagles- 88m
6. Billy Joel-78.5m
7.Pink Floyd- 73.5m
8. Barbara Striesand- 71.5m
9. Elton John- 67.5m
10. Aerosmith- 64m

So that's Rock's 762 million albums to Country's 105 million. Yup, looks like country is the most listened to music in the world.

LOL.


IMO,I could think of worse things to listen to;house,trance,50 cent types,Brittny krap,new so called punk,screamo metal.

The only country I listen to,is stuff that has some sort of memory for me,Johnny Cash,Merle Haggard,mostly old school stuff.

To each his own.

I do,however thinks its wrong to infringe on,say,someone who got to the cove long before you,and you come in playing/BLASTING your gangsta rap,while me,my wife,and kids,all have to listen to that shiz!

Have some respect for others...Or I'll beat yur ass!

Like the nuclear weapons analogy. Have a buddy that works for the CA Dept. of Corrections, transports bus loads of prisoners. If they complain about it being too hot, he turns up the heater. Too cold, they get the A/C. The gangbangers get out of line, he cranks up the country...

Not a big fan of county myself, but if Johnny Cash comes up, we ride to that.

I think some of the best times on the water is when you are screwing around with your music and tring to be as obnoxious as possible! Sure my favorite music to ride to is rock or punk (linkin park, blink 182 ect) but I always get a few smiles when I throw on some Johny Cash, Kenny Chesney or Will Smith... ok, I take back the Will Smith (every time I play "Big Willie Style" someone gets hurt, no joke!)! Hell, I went out with my kids a couple weeks ago and had a Sponge Bob square pants CD cranking while I pulled them all on a tube. They were back there singing as loud as they could! Speaking of country music, I have been looking the last couple weeks for a cowboy hat I can wear on occation while riding (I lost my superman cape at the end of last year and I broke my "Parks" afro wig chin strap a couple weeks ago.). Have fun with your music!! If you ever see me on the Delta you will most likely hear something very fast and hard coming from my system...but you never know...you may find me being pulled in nothing but a cowboy hat and chaps!

It just seems to me that wakeboard comunity is more of a, {not in any particular order} "House, Hip Hop, Rock, kind of croud.

If I went to a Rodeo or a Stampeed or Cowboy Jamboree, or Cow nut's BBQ, type of thing and I went and pluged in my I-pod to the nearest sound system and started playing pretty much anything on it I would not expect a warm welcome, In fact I would look for the closest exit and run like hell. Them cowboys can be cranky folk if they dont get what they like. LOL

I guess Im trying to say

"get in where you fit in"

Now Luke - don't go generalizing the entire state, I can tell you for a fact that it's pretty much the same here as it is there music wise, country is pretty damn low (as in non-existent) on the "what to listen to when riding/hanging on the lake"

I personally like every kind of music out there, except for country (Johnny Cash excluded), and your standard pop/top 40 crap.

Big Dog- Chill out, Jeeze. Just cause you do not like something doesn't mean you have to publicize it with profanity on a website!

Grant was trying to start something by getting people to start swapping music, therefore expanding his collection and knowledge of it. If you did not like it, then just say it wasn't your cup o' tea.

Your words were pretty harsh, and I would be pissed to.


Just relax,

Luke if you read the first post you will see that he said those things first in so many words, about anybody that likes country music. "BFE", "Gayest most lame song ever", country music belongs in the sticks, all from the first post. Then he really went and did it when he spoke bad about NASCAR. He started this thread to bash other peoples music. But I guess it's alright with you for him to do it. I don't think what I said about his music was any worse than what he said about people that happen to like country music. But you are right, I should have never stooped to his level and responded to his country music, people from the sticks, (BFE), bashing post. I'll say no more on this subject, because it's clear that as a country music person (by the way I like Rock and Roll as well) I don't have a brain.

Peace out.

Hey, variety is good:-) My favorite on the water is Metallica, but I have also been known to play a little Blondie! You sound like fun Ed, can't wait to meet you on the water one day!

Ahhh, Metalica, I do like to listen to that while riding (the old stuff at Least).

We do have one guy that is a Rick Springfield -Jesse's Girl fan...

Blondie....One of my fav.!!

As far as meeting me on the water,That day will come sooner that you and me probably think.Plus I know where you ride and what your boat looks like.


BTW Have you had your little one yet??

Keith, we definitely have a variety of music on our boat. I am open to listening to anything and the person riding gets to dictate what we listen to. That's the way it is with most of my friends, everyone is pretty open minded and it's all about having fun. We don't have any country though but I will be adding that to my collection;-)

Ed, no, not yet. I'm 39 weeks:-) I am so excited about meeting my little man, but I hope he doesn't come today on Friday the 13th. Spooky... and I can't wait to get back out on the water!!!

Guess we should have a "Dress to your favorite music" party at the lake! I'll bring a long hair wig (for my rock) bottle of gel (for my punk and 80's) and some slacks (for my chilling with jazz). No sombreos or cowboy hats that s@it sucks.

quote:

Here's a list of the 10 best selling artists of all time.

1. The Beatles- 166.5 million albums sold
2. Elvis Presley- 117.5m
3. Led Zeppelin- 106m
4. Garth Brooks- 105m
5. The Eagles- 88m
6. Billy Joel-78.5m
7.Pink Floyd- 73.5m
8. Barbara Striesand- 71.5m
9. Elton John- 67.5m
10. Aerosmith- 64m

So that's Rock's 762 million albums to Country's 105 million. Yup, looks like country is the most listened to music in the world.




actually, no. that only lists u.s. units sold - worldwide would paint a very different picture (and dave's suspicion was close, the rolling stones are 11th on the list).

but any delineation that's generous enough to put the beatles and billy joel (pop), in the same category as led zep and pink floyd, should agree that elvis and especially the eagles are at least half country.

oh and instead of miller, sub in the king of swing, benny goodman!

Who the hell cares what music someone is playing on the water. I hate country too, but judging people by what music they listen to is just lame, and that kind of mentality should be out-grown after high school.

Jason, that's a great idea! Ed has very good taste I must say;-)

Seems to me that Country is dead these days...

The early 90s had the men of country: garth, alan, george, clint, dunn...
The late 90s had the women of country: shania, faith, chicks, martina...

Seems like the country well done gone dry.

Play what ever type of music want as loud as you want, Its your boat, your music, your system.

Jeff: When you see someone riding a Jet Ski, dont you just smile and wave at them, but inside your thinking what a Dumb A$$, I wish that ski would catch on fire and sink. I think thats what most people are thinking when they hear country music blasting from your boat. LOL

I say all the W/W country lovers should have a Country Music Jamboree, where they can link all there systems and blast country all day all night, let me know where and when, Ill be sure to make it.

As a Texan and music lover I can definitely see both sides of the coin here. While I don't like much "mainstream" country, instead listening to Pat Green, Robert Keen, Cross Canadian Ragweed and such........I don't EVER listen to it on the water.

Rap, rock, electronica, house, etc....even 80s....get played on my boat at obscene levels on the NVS. There is a certain vibe that those tunes put out while you're on the water riding that gets you pumped up to ride.

I just think it depends on the situation or your mood or whatever.....if I'm driving through the Hill Country on a sunny afternoon there's nothing like a little Texas country music...it fits the mood......but if I'm out on the boat at Party Cove you're just as liable to hear 2 Live Crew or some house (whatever the women want).

Listen....it's not that i have anything against rap or country but...i just spent a weekend listening to some led zepplin, AC DC, Gunz and roses, pink floyd, supertramp, and more and personally thats the way to be!....listen me and my friends listen to rap all the time but when your in the boat you need the classics. it's the best way to ride.

I personally don't care what anyone else thinks about the music I play regardless what it is. if they don't like the music, "GET THE MY BOAT".... Awwww Boat owners have all the power!!

I allow my fellow riders that ride on my boat to listen to what they want during their set.

Stefani ~ You definetly know good taste when you see it,cuss you got good taste yourself!!

If there are no riders in the water ....you know it got to be hip-hop but it's the riders choice....Yes even if it's lame a$$ country or whatever.

Opera anybody??

the closest thing you'll find to country music on my boat is the solo album by Mike Ness (lead singer of Social Distortion).

You should go get "Cheating At Solitaire" by Mike Ness if you are big Social D fan. Great album with a little twang to it (and I personally do not like country music).

last weekend I was out on the water, and this group of kids (16-20) years old with their dads X-10 listening to snoop dogg or something sooo loud. it cracks me up to see some of these privelidged kids from the burbs listening to music from the hood. not sure how that works out, but like I have said before, to each his own. and it does not bother me, as long as they are not blaring it at the ramp. whenever anyone is blaring anything at the ramp, that is just not cool.
and both Mike Ness albums are great. it is nice to see a musician share what his passions were when he was growing up. hearing 'Long Black Veil' with Mike Ness' voice is pretty cool.

Tim - I have "Cheating at Solitaire"... but thanks for the tip! I'm bummed because I've been in Seattle for three weeks and Social D are playing here tomorrow (the day after I leave!).. that figures! Not that I can complain, I've seen them like three times in the past year.

Holy crap, there are wakeboarders actually talking about music I actually like (Mike Ness/Social D). I was beginning to think that I didnt have anything musically in common, with one person on this sight. Tim, if you like that Mike Ness album. Check out the Supersuckers album, Must Have Been High.
 
By thomas trigo (ttrigo) on Friday, June 03, 2005 - 1:21 pm:    Edit Post Delete Post
Ryan - if you ever need to talk Social D with anyone, drop me a line. I saw the supersuckers play at the first "Hootenany" back in like '96 or so. I think Jerry Lee Lewis was the headliner that year with Social D. saw them play like 5 times that year. they do rock.

7.Pink Floyd- 73.5m
8. Barbara Striesand- 71.5m
9. Elton John- 67.5m
10. Aerosmith- 64m

Looking at the list I believe that three of those top ten you have are country artists.

I'm late too, but frankly, I am at the opposite end of the spectrum from Grant on this...
I like alot of music, I have everything from Glenn Miller to Metallica, and I am 46.
I do not listen to hip-hop, or whatever that stuff is called this week.

I am not worried about "fitting in", I never have been. Fitting in is a joke. Like following the leader off of a cliff..

Listen to what you enjoy, but don't crank it so loud that you make me listen to it 100 yards away, and I won't make you "listen" to me...that is the way I act on the lake, in the truck, or at home. It is just common sense/common courtesy. People that get a bang out of cranking any music, (especially foul-mouthed), for the purpose of annoying others are the reason that laws get enacted about db's, and other stuff that used to just be taboo due to self-respect and respect for others. Saying that one form or another of music doesn't fit with any kind of boating is trying to cram a whole lot of folks into a very small box, which never works out very well..

Well put Army Dad. I like alot of different music myself, but these days it is pretty much all country.

There was a time when I despised country, I used to love Hip Hop and that is all I would play. But now that I have a child of my own it was time to change my ways. I did not find the language or the message of most Hip Hop songs suitable for family time.

When every song is about how they hit this b*tch or smoked that fool, I knew I had to find a music genre with a little more of a moral backbone. I still flip to a Hip Hop station every now and then when in the car by myself, but I find that I pretty much prefer country in all situations anymore.
