David Allan Coe

Johnny Cash might have walked the line, but Akron-born David Allan Coe, who's done hard time and reportedly even killed a fellow inmate, has crossed it. An outlaw amongst outlaws, he received even more acclaim when Howard Stern started playing some of his obscure songs in which he freely uses the word "nigga." Granted, these songs were reportedly written for a motorcycle gang and not intended for popular consumption, but they point to the underlying hatred and racism lurking beneath the exterior of his traditional country ballads. Coe, a self-described "long-haired redneck" who counts white-trash rapper Kid Rock as a friend, tried to prove he's not prejudiced with "Song for the Year 2000," in which he asserts "it takes all kinds to make this world go round." But that hardly makes amends. (Niesel)
