I know that this song is old news by now, but I removed the drums from We Are Young and it actually sounds really really cool
IM SCREAMIBG WITH LAUGHTER THESE GIRLS ARE MY HEROES
SHOTS FUCKING FIRED
For anyone not familiar with how modern country sounds, these girls are calling out ACTUAL songs like making blatant references to ACTUAL lyrics from other songs on the radio.
And its fucking FLAWLESS OH MY GOD THIS IS AMAZING.
One of the reasons I stopped listening to country was, when I was a kid, the radio was full of songs by women and songs that talked about women like they were actual people.
Now so many of the songs dont give women a personality, just describe things about them like their legs, their lips, how they look in your truck. Its just SO much objectification.
My sister just showed me this and its ADSFHASDFKLLKFH she even said she heard it on the radio im so happy
"I aint your tan legged juliet" IM SCREECHING
I’ve been meaning to make a post about this song… but I’m glad someone else already did lol
This is my new favorite thing. I need to borrow dad’s truck and drive around blasting this.
Ok, so I have this rule where ‘I will listen to any genre of music except country’. Well, these ladies get to be the exception to that rule, because YES, THIS SONG.
See, when I was growing up my dad had control of the radio and all he listens to is country, so that was all I ever heard. No other radio stations were allowed, and any music channels on tv like Much music or mtv were banned in our house. My mom had one cassette of the Bee Gee’s, the Beverly Hills Cop soundtrack, and the Top Gun soundtrack, (which she was rarely allowed to play on family outings, but which I lived to hear because I thought they were so fantastic,) and that was the ONLY non-country music I heard until I was 12 unless it was playing in the background at a store I was shopping at. Not only that, but (because this was back in the 90’s,) my dad really *hated* any of the song-writers with any depth. Garth Brooks, Mary Chapin Carpenter… anyone who’s song I’d consider to actually have content, got the radio switched to a different country station. The redneck, beer-drinking, women-objectifying, uber-conservative country. That was the “good stuff”.
So I grew up liking country music because that was all there was.
Then, when I was 12 my grandparents gave me a cassette walkman with a radio for Christmas, (and also a greatest hits of ABBA cassette, which was my grandma’s favourite band). And I could turn that dial myself and listen to whatever I wanted. Which also coincided with us getting our first family computer and access to the new wonders of the internet.
So, what did I stumble into first straight from country? The obligatory early 00’s pop, German metal, and Japanese pop music. And let me say it was love at first listen.
Like, I may complain about the objectification of women in pop songs, but at that time at the tender age of 12 it was like ‘omg, women are PEOPLE in these songs!’ ‘There are songs about *me*, I don’t just have to be decoration!’ because for all pop music’s failings, it is still head and shoulders over the MESS that is country music.
Metal was even better, I fell hard for European symphonic metal bands.
And once I had that perspective of what music COULD be when it wasn’t about beer/farms/trucks/heartbreak/slut-shaming/objectification/cheating and being cheated on, I ran as far away as I could and never looked back.
The whole genre is so disgustingly toxic that it is literally the only genre I won’t listen to. Everything else, even if I think it might not be for me, I will give it a try, because I’ve learned that you find so many good things just by being open minded and willing to try something new. And I have been surprised at how much I like some artists from genres I didn’t think I’d be interested in.
It saddens me to hear how much WORSE country has gotten since I got away from it, (not that I’m at all surprised,) but MAD PROPS to these two ladies for calling out all that endemic bullshit that’s going on. I hope this song catches fire.

I’m so emo it made me dislocate my knee.
I shit you not I am at the doctors right now because last week I dislocated my knee at school and my doctor told me it happened because my black skinny jeans were so tight that it put pressure on my knee cap causing it to pop out when I sat down
