I'm sure this has been discussed but after I heard Jason Alden's "1994" I said to myself this has to be the worst "country" song ever recorded.
1994, Joe Diffie comin' out my radio
I'm just a country boy with a farmer's tan
So help me girl I'll be your Pick-Up Man
How 'bout a night to remember and a fifth of Goose
'Bout to bust out my honky-tonk attitude
A little feel good you ain't never felt before
I'm talkin' 1994
Then comes Luke Bryan and "That's my kind of night." Good God, what an abomination of a song.
All them other boys wanna wind you up and take you downtown
But you look like the kind that likes to take it way out
Out where the corn rows grow, row, row my boat
Floatin’ down the Flint River, catch us up a little catfish dinner
Gonna sound like a winner, when I lay you down and love you right
Yeah, that’s my kind of night!
Might sit down on my diamond plate tailgate
Put in my country ride hip-hop mixtape
Little Conway*, a little T-Pain, might just make it rain
Sad thing is, both these guys have some decent songs but they continue to pick the shittiest ones to make singles of. I have to go with That's my kind of night as the worst I've ever heard, though. When you have colleagues in the same genre calling it the worst song they've ever heard, it's bad. Real bad.
