  • Country scion Hank Williams III has been involved with projects that reflected his love of punk and heavy metal, such as Superjoint Ritual (with Pantera's Phil Anselmo) and his hillbilly act, Assjack, but on DAMN RIGHT REBEL PROUD Hank keeps it pure country. By country, we're still talking about the rough-edged, true-blue style of Waylon Jennings, David Allan Coe, and Johnny Paycheck. Williams has too much of his grandfather in him to make a crossover arena-country record. Right at the start, he hits Nashville hard with the raucous opener, "The Grand Ole Opry (Ain't So Grand)." Elsewhere, old-fashioned songs of hard living and late night introspection like "Stoned and Alone" and "3 Shades of Black" tell harrowing tales that are as punk rock as anything Black Flag ever did, only with a lean honky-tonk accompaniment instead of mountains of volume.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (p.127) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Hank III keeps things engaging, thanks to a country-punk sound with a strange bent: He balances catchy, classic melodies...with weirder, more-rousing stuff..."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.108) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Like a punk Springsteen, his songs are for and about the 'busted up, beaten down, anti-social, depressed and cursed'..."
