For a lot of young people Country Music is or was for rednecks and old farts. If someone changed this, it is Johnny Cash.
In the years before his death he had done something like no other artist before: To bring young people to listen to Country Music. Especially a lot of people who are listening to Punk-Rock, have add a new style into their taste of Music; maybe because Johnny cash was something like the first “True-Hearted Punk“; a Rebel, someone who stands up if he didn’t like something and someone who has a strong voice and always said what he was thinking.
Cash’s songs are about outsiders, losers, and the poor. He told us the real horror stories; if you’re not born on the sunny side. No wonder that a lot of Punkbands are inspired by him and start covering some of his songs. This Compilation has some great Horror-punk and Psychobilly acts covering songs written or made famous by the “Man in Black”.
Just read the great liner notes of each band in the booklet and you’ll know what I mean. This CD is essential for Fans and people who like to become one.
