I love this Country

I heard Austin musician Jesse Dayton live on the radio today. First time I'd heard him -- pretty good if you like country music -- and I do (and I have to add that I'm not talking about that Nashvegas crap, I mean the real thing). I liked his politics too, he made a plug for Chris Bell for guv over Kinky.

Weirdly enough, one of his songs was picked for the soundtrack for Rob Zombie's B-grade horror movie, "The Devil's Rejects". For some reason, hard-core country music frightens people, but so does the lighthearted harmless stuff. Juxtaposition of brain-eating maniacs with Three Dog Night. Go figure.

The song they picked for the movie was this one, and is this a great country song title, or what?

I'm At Home Getting Hammered (While She's Out Getting Nailed)

Some more great titles from the Bango & Sullivan album:

Dick Soup
I Don't Give A Truck
I'm Trying To Quit, But I Just Quit Trying
Lord, Don't Let Me Die In A Cheap Motel

That last one reminds me of something Billy Joe Shaver said in an interview on NPR's Fresh Air (he has a heart condition but keeps on playing gigs):
"Oh Lord, I don't want to die in Pflugerville"
