YMMV / Marty Robbins

  • Awesome Music: "Big Iron"
  • Colbert Bump: Though Marty was always something of a household name among fans of classic country music, Fallout: New Vegas' use of "Big Iron" posthumously earned him a new generation of fans.
  • Covered Up:
    • Guy Mitchell's cover of "Singin' the Blues" leapfrogged Robbins' original on the pop charts.
    • His version of "Ribbon of Darkness" gave Gordon Lightfoot his first major success as a songwriter.
  • Epic Riff: The classical guitar opener of "El Paso" and the distinctive (and accidental) distorted guitar solo of "Don't Worry", both played by Nashville session legend Grady Martin, are quite well-remembered.
  • Signature Song: "El Paso" and "Big Iron".
  • Tear Jerker: The ending to "El Paso" where the cowboy shares one last kiss with Feleena and dies in her arms.
