The guys who wear jump wings have their own songs that most people
will probably never hear. Some are nearly grim with determination
("Down from heaven comes 11 and there's hell to pay below") and some
acknowlege a heritage and an eagerness to live up to it ("We have a
rendez-vous with destiny").
All paratroopers seem to delight in singing "Blood on the Risers" to
the music of "Battle Hymn of the Republic" - about a rookie trooper's
final jump. The chorus starts out: "Gory, gory, what a hellova way to
die / He ain't gonna jump no more..."
I'm pretty sure they're guy songs. :-)

Hmm. I'm reminded of an ex paratrooper who was always on about how he
knew how to land and for ten bucks he'd jump out that window. I
finally got sick of hearing him and gave him ten bucks. It was a 50
foot drop onto a fully laden bicycle rack.
You got to include the Boss - Born to Run, Thunder Road ('You ain't a
beauty, but hey you're alright'), E-street Shuffle ('Little Angel
steps the shuffle like she ain't got no brains') Many, many more
George Thorogood/John Lee Hooker - One bourbon, One shot, One Beer
Most anything from ZZ Top - La Grange, Legs, . .
How about Frank Zappa - I don't know many women who appreciate the
humor in Dynamo Hum

Now that's a gooder.
There are a few more shit kickers on my list, but Hank is still on top
of the list.
Then there is the non C/W, popular music market.
After Sinatra, who's left.
Joe Williams and Tony Bennett while quite good in their own right,
come in a distant 2nd.
Then there is the folk market.
Most are groups although Pete Seeger did some solo work.
"Good Old Boys Like Me" - Don Williams
"Pick-Up Man" - Joe Diffie
"Country Boy Can Survive" - Bocephus
I was thinking the other day that I never hear car songs like the
Beach Boys and Jan and Dean did back in the early sixties. I guess
it's hard to be very lyrical about a Honda Civic.
Totally guy songs:
Any and every Iron Maiden song.
Anything ever recorded by Rammstein.
All songs featuring Udo Dirkschnieder on lead vocals (Accept)
Most "Progressive Rock", especially newer bands like Dream Theater and
Coheed and Cambria. The extreme lack of women at Dream Theater shows is
as obvious as a Star Trek convention.
Rammstein is not just guy music, it's women repellant music. If I want
my wife to leave the shop, I simply cue up "Mein Tell" or "Reise, Reise"
on the iPod, and within seconds, I'm alone! <G>
Good wife repellant music is Rob Zombie.....she leaves the shop in record
time as soon as "Black Sunshine" comes on, and yes it is nice to be alone
and IMHO for the list:
"The Jack" - AC/DC
"Girls, Girls, Girls" - Motley Crue
"Don't go away mad (just go away)" - Motley Crue
"Cherry Pie" - Warrant
"Uh! all night" - Kiss
That's good, as this allows you to save the nukes (Rammstein and
Accept) for when you really need them. <G>
"The Jack" rates with "Whole Lotta' Rosie" as my two favorite AC/DC
songs. "Sin City" can grab me on the right day.
I actually got to know the Warrant guys when they were up and coming,
as the opening act on "The Paul Stanley All-Star's" solo tour in '89.
To borrow a term from a famous movie, they "acted like pauncy
