Default Jukebox Border Wars

I've been working on a poem titled Jukebox Border Wars and I wanted to hear your thoughts and experiences on the matter.

It has to do with being at the bar, no music playing on the jukebox, so I play some beaner classics. Every single time, soon as I start playing stuff with tubas and accordions, white folks run to the jukebox to put on some lynard skynard or something in that light.

I get the feeling that they think they are being patriotic by doing this, just by the looks in their faces. Anyone else have this happen? What are your thoughts on the subject?

I dont have any experience with this kind of stuff as I dont frequent bars to much and dont like paisa music, but what are the looks on their faces?

It's like a territorial thing I feel. Some people leave the bar if I drop like ten bucks on music. Some bartenders get mad at me and skip my songs, and sometimes I'll play songs by grupo yndio that are covers of English songs just to fuck with people. Then they hear the Spanish singing...

It's just hilarious to me that there could be no music on, as soon as I play Mexican music, white folks attack the jukebox to take back whats theirs by being patriotic

What's even funnier is they usually put on good ole boy country, which I also like and is very similar to the corridos I usually play.

I assume its the languag barrier that turns them off. If a man is singing about the love he has for his tractor, they wanna be able to understand. I find both types of music atrocious but what I'm wondering is what kind of bars you go to that offer such an eclectic mix of shit music

Pretty much every bar I've ever been to in my life, and I'm sure most bars across America play country music and if there are beaners, paisa music. It's what people drink to, sounds like you'd enjoy a club, college or a hipster bar instead. I prefer dive bars.

I can vibe to both. But yea.. I guess the co-existence/tension would have to already exist if there's a jukebox that plays both.

Kind of odd... it'd be like me playing some Drake shit @ the paisa marisco spot... although I don't think they have that option lol.

I doubt that every bar across America is playing both country music and paisa music in their jukebox and if that were the case, wouldn't that also include college and hipster bars? And like I said I don't go to bars that often. I find bar regulars to be dopes for the most part. Pool, darts, sports center, drunk girls I'm not fucking, etc. I'm not into any of that. I do like Karakoe bars though. And guess what? One of my standards is besame mucho. Its a big hit with the japanese drunk crowd

I didn't say all bars, but most bars. I mentioned college and hipster bars because those were examples of bars that typically don't play that type of music. Japanese karaoke bars are their own damn category

And technically, any place with a jukebox connected to the internet can become a paisa bar...for ten bucks for about 12 songs.

They really are. Like I said, never much of a fan of bars and I always thought karaoke was corny, which it is, but its also a lot of fun. Has to be a genuine Japanese or Korean place though.

I have a feeling you walked into a plain ol establishment that isn't a paisa bar at all and played music that isn't what the regulars are accustomed to.

A place that is known to be a paisa bar likely has only paisa music to play in their regular ol jukebox that isn't connected to the net.

Sounds like it. And if that's the case, it wouldn't have mattered if it was Italian Opera or German polka. If the group isn't into it, then it seems like a dick move to go play something that you have to know, isn't going to go over with that particular crowd. Unless its just one paisa song weaved into a playlist that most of the crowd can get behind.

I don't think it's a dick move, since it's my hard earned money I'm spending to play what I want to hear. A couple places I've gone to have like a Beaner Block on their jukebox that doesn't allow people to choose Mexican music. But you can still find some stuff it's not 100% beaner proof.

More that a couple songs and its a dick move. I like symphony music but I wouldn't think to play that on a jukebox when I know everyone else isnt going to , be into it. Even if I'm paying my hard earned quarters. I can listen to symphony music at home or alone in my car.

It's like a buck a song, and when I'm drinking sometimes I want to listen to some Mexican music. Pretty much everytime I'm drinking.

Hey its not illegal but it seems like a clear violation of jukebox etiquette.

When I do it, I mentioned there is nothing playing at the moment. Once I start playing songs, people start to put their own music on. If I was getting paid to be a DJ for the bar, I'd play stuff everyone likes. Since I'm not, and I'm actually paying money to play the music, I'm gonna play whatever the fuck I want to listen to.

When I'm drinking and I'm in the mood for paisa music to go with my paisa cheladas... I go to a paisa ass marisco spot where the meseras are hot, the clientele is illegal, and the jukebox gets disconnected when the banda or conjuntos start playing...

Other than that, I don't go putting on paisa music at a gringo dive bar... unless its 5 de mayo, they all about it that night
