Johnny Paycheck struck solid country gold back in 1977 with “Take This Job And Shove It”. The single, written by David Allan Coe, is Johnny Paycheck’s biggest hit of his long and illustrious career. This video is set on the TV show Hee-Haw, so we get the rare chance to hear the song performed live with quality audio and video.
“Take This Job And Shove It” is a classic Country and an anthem for what almost all of us have thought about at one time or the other. The song has provided material to Friday Drive Time DJs for generations, and walkout songs for B movies for generations to come. Who doesn’t love Johnny Paycheck’s “Take This Job And Shove It”?
I will say David Allan Coe would like you to hear his version too.
You know that there have been a whole bunch of remakes of “Take This Job And Shove It”. One of the most interesting actually involves collaboration with Coe and Country Rap group Moonshine Bandits. He even appeared in the video
So, no matter what kind, or which version you think is best (it’s Coe’s obviously), you can’t deny that “Take This Job And Shove It” is a timeless classic.
