''Cheer Up, Charlie Daniels'' is a five-person indie rock band based in Nashville, Tennessee.

Its members are Luke Skidmore on lead guitar, Adam Selzer on Rhodes/M3, Gary Hundley on bass, Skylar Glover on drums, and frontman Neil O'Neil on guitar and lead vocals. Neil is also Turbo Lover, of Music/TheProtomen. Adam and Luke have another band, Music/AdamAndTheCouchPotatoes, of which Neil is also a member.

While they draw inspiration from country great Charlie Daniels, the band's style has been described as very eclectic. Many of their songs deal with love. Currently they have released a vinyl album, titled "Live in '79", and have plans to release an EP.

!!This band and their songs provide examples of:

* AllGirlsWantBadBoys: The song 'Too Damn Rock and Roll' plays with this. The girl may want him, but she won't follow through.
** Some fans have humorously theorized that the man is supposed to be Neil.
* AllGuysWantCheerleaders: The song 'Pig Tails' is about one of these guys. [[TearJerker After the relationship ended.]] .
* TheCheerleader: The guy in 'Pig Tails' realizes his girlfriend is this. (She's a literal cheerleader, but as far as personality goes.) He notes that she 'used to be sweeter', indicating that she may have been nicer before. It's [[TearJerker surprisingly sad]].
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: Done on purpose. Never has art class been so...charged.
* DoubleEntendre: Oh, so many.
* HandsomeDevil: The man described in 'Too Damn Rock and Roll'.
--> They say that he ain't got a soul/He'll make your knees lose full control...
* HeAlsoDid: Neil O'Neil is also Turbo Lover, AKA Dr. Wily of Music/TheProtomen.
** He and Adam are in Music/AdamAndTheCouchPotatoes.
* HighSchoolSweethearts: Some of their songs revolve around this, though the degree of affection varies.
* HurricaneOfPuns: The song 'Yeast Infection'.
* LampshadedDoubleEntendre: The song 'Yeast Infection' is full of bread-related puns, but they also relate to money. [[strike: And sex]].
** As does 'Bunsen Burner Baby Blues', in relation to science.
** And 'Masterpiece' in relation to art. Come to think of it, most of their songs are like this.
** The unreleased song '[[http://cheerupcharliedaniels.bandcamp.com/track/marching-band-romance Marching Band Romance]]' doesn't even ''try'' to hide it.
---> That's not a drumstick in my pants...
* LyricalDissonance: The demo of 'Ice Cold Razor Blades' sounds like a happy, upbeat song one might hear at a spa. It's about a woman getting her throat slit.
* MoodWhiplash: Going from this to Neil's [[Music/AdamAndTheCouchPotatoes other]] [[Music/TheProtomen bands]] can be quite the switch.
* Music/TheProtomen: Neil O'Neil voices Dr. Wily. Recently, Luke became one of their guitarists.
* {{Pun}}s: 'Yeast Infection' has quite a few, all relating to bread. (And money.)
--> I don't make enough bread to keep you satisfied/ Dough is all I'm kneading to get a slice of your high..
* ShowdownAtHighNoon: Panther, of Music/TheProtomen, did a promotional song, ''The Duel'', about the band facing off against a similarly-named group for rights to the name. There can only be one victor.
** ForegoneConclusion: Cheer Up Charlie Daniels won.
*** The song has gotten a sequel, ''The Duel: Part 2'', detailing the band's faceoff at the Road to Bonnaroo on May 17. [[spoiler: They got second place.]]
*** In 2011, the band came back to Bonnaroo for a rematch. And won.
* SmokingIsCool: Subverted; the song 'No More Nicotine' details how they're much better off not smoking.
* ViralMarketing: VOTE CUCD appears in the music videos for a second.
* VisualPun: Some of the puns in 'Yeast Infection' are only recognizable as such when you see them.
* TheWestern: Both parts of ''The Duel'' are this.
** Part 2 even more so now that the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X_Ht8NU5oJ0&playnext_from=TL&videos=5JpZ4_TCIuQ music video]] is out.
