    The story and resulting drama behind it is hilarious.

    This entire saga has been such a middle finger to country music. They pulled the original song off the country music charts, then Billy Ray teams on the remix, goes to #1 on the CMC, then all the racist rednecks start falling all over themselves, "I bet Lil Nas ain't ever ridden a horse." So they put him on a horse for the video.

    Never heard of any of this until right now. Just watched the video and I thought it was like a rejected SNL video that got leaked.

    The only good thing was Chris Rock at the end with the speeding bullet with grease on it.

    It is apparently a political thing? I was reading about it on Wikipedia and it seems there is a controversy over it being on the country music charts. As I was reading there was a mention of a rapper I'd never heard of doing an album that


    .......by black artists making cross-genre music, noting that rapper Juice Wrld's Death Race for Love (2019) would "probably be the most commercially successful rock album of 2019", but would never appear on rock charts or playlists,.....

    I downloaded it and it isn't rock by any stretch. It is synthetic garbage so I guess it could be pop music these days.

    The original song in this thread ain't country either.

    To all the haters:

    This song is FUCKING AWESOME!

    I love how all the haters are debating whether or not it's country.

    It's more country than this BULLSHIT:

    I am going to say that by the norms and standards of country music - this is not country.

    Let me explain.

    I do believe that most country music is boring. This song is fantastic. The only logical conclusion is that this song isn't country.

    (There are good country songs, but honestly, only very few imho).

    I honestly do not care one bit what people classify it as - but hats off to the country guy that supported it and great on the artist - because this is a great song.

    WHO makes the music isn't relevant to WHAT Genre it is.

    The problem is IMHO there are only 2 genres of music.

    Good shit.

    Shit that sucks.
