may i point out that the majority of "country and western" musicians are 
not from the country or the west.  

many "soul" singers have no soul.

much of todays "rhythm and blues" has neither rhythm, nor the blues.

many "gansta rappers" are not actually gangsters.

many "indie rockers" are on major labels

many "skaterockers" have never been on a skateboard.

the list continues...
