Things to Listen to Instead of Country Music

You’re on a road-trip with your old college friends ready to relive the good ol’ days when you were more fun and less hairy, wrinkly and ugly. As you strap in, ready for the ride of your life, not one, not two but all three of your old buddies hit you with the worst news since Jim knocked up his high school girlfriend freshman year.

Upon deciding on what station will fill the void of silence that comes from every great reunion of friends who haven’t kept in contact for several years but decided an 8-hour trip confined in George’s Prius because that’s actually the best car among the four of you was a good idea, Bill suggests country. The rest agree. This is it. This is how you end. You are about to be placed in your own personal form of Hell and you have not thought of any other suggestions.

Before you embark on such journey, here are alternative sounds to listen to.


  1. The screaming scene from the movie “Scream”


  1. A cat consistently meowing


  1. Babies crying


  1. A loud lawn mower


  1. A rich man reading his will


  1. An old lady without teeth slurping soup



Suggest all of these to your friends as alternatives to country because, let’s be honest, anything is better than listening to a whiney voice talk about how everyone left them including their own animals.
