Episodes

  • 41 - The Warrior

    September 24th, 2021  |  38 mins 49 secs
    bang bang, finger guns, not patty smith, patty smyth, scandal, stereo jungle child, the warrior

    Seth and Marc crawl into the sordid world of a terrible Cats remake music video and a song that is completely lacking in direction. Who is the titular Warrior? I guess the woman that isn't having the issues? Who's the hunter? Who's the game? What the fuck is going on?

  • 40 - Legs

    September 17th, 2021  |  52 mins 50 secs
    benjy, legs, she holding leg, she's got legs, underwear ignorance, zz top

    Marc and Seth work through lyrics that read like a lost paragraph from the point of view of a sexually charged Benjy from The Sound And The Fury. It starts off just kind of weird and starts to sound like someone who doesn't know what underwear are like and gets pretty confusing with who's singing to who.

  • 39 - Hungry Like The Wolf

    September 10th, 2021  |  41 mins 16 secs
    cunnilingus, duran, duran duran, hungry like the wolf, juices like wine, lycanthropy

    Seth and Marc sift through the Stalkers Guide as written by Simon LeBon and Company with the song Hungry Like The Wolf. And they enlist the talents of Andrew Bernard to figure out some of what the hell is going on. Absolutely a banger musically but high on the creep factor.

  • 38 - Cradle Of Love

    September 3rd, 2021  |  52 mins 40 secs
    cradle of love, gross, music video, pederast, pedophilia, rock the cradle of love, various screeches

    YEEAOOOWWW ROWROR! According to Mr. Idol, it's time to do a bunch of stuff with a cradle. Seth and Marc do the dirty job of tearing this disjointed mess apart but when it comes down to it, all we really know is Billy wants to fuck a "little child bride" and we think it's gross. And please... no one look at Seth's search history,

  • 37 - Owner Of A Lonely Heart

    August 27th, 2021  |  48 mins 21 secs
    cocaine, motivational speaking, much better than the, owner of a broken heart, owner of a lonely heart, yes

    Move yourself! Seth and Marc tackle a beloved band from their musical pasts and great punchline to many Abbott-and-Costello-esque joke routines; Yes. Unfortunately, this ain't no Roundabout... this is their foray into 80's music and bipolar motivational speaking.

  • 36 - Slide

    August 19th, 2021  |  38 mins 51 secs
    3rd grade poetry, abortion, dizzy up the girl, goo goo dolls, oh may, slide

    Marc and Seth are collecting all of the pieces of nothing that fall... whatever that's supposed to mean. Listen to the unveiling of what this song is really about if you've ever just thought it was something to sing to your significant other.

  • 35 - Ice Ice Baby

    August 12th, 2021  |  56 mins 34 secs
    bad rap, ice, ice baby, robert van winkle, too cold, vanilla ice, word to your mother

    Take heed! Lyrical "poet" Rob Van Winkle's 1990 hit Ice Ice Baby gets a good once over courtesy of Marc and Seth. Clunky lines, terrible idioms, and false bravado abound! Hear a setp by step breakdown of the song that catapulted White People into rap experts.

  • 34 - Girls And Boys

    August 5th, 2021  |  38 mins 1 sec
    bad charlotte, boys, ferraris, girl, girls and boys, good charlotte, misogyny, shopping sprees

    What's that terrible smell? Ahhh yes. It's the stench of Good Charlotte lyrics. Marc and Seth look as deeply as one can into the shallow pool of misogyny and confused message that is Girls And Boys. Take a trip with them and try to figure out what the hell is going on.

  • 33 - Crash Into Me

    July 30th, 2021  |  40 mins 46 secs
    crash, crash into me, dave matthews band, dirty rascal, dmb, peeing tom, stalking

    We're gonna go back to the days of the mid-late 90's when puka shell necklaces and kegstands were all rage... Also in the national zeitgeist at the time? Being a fucking peeping tom with abandonment issues, apparently. Topped off with a nursery rhyme! Dave Matthews and his band of talented misfits unleashed this anthem for stalkers unto a mostly unknowing crowd. We can stay silent no longer.

  • 32 - Escape (The Pina Colada Song)

    July 23rd, 2021  |  45 mins 38 secs
    brain, cape, dunes, escape, lady, pina coladas, rain, shitty guitar solos, tomorrow noon, yoga

    Pull up a beach chair, some personal ads, and a fruity drink! Seth and Marc bring to light the true story behind the sing along that probably caused the Jonestown Massacre. We learn that Rupert Holmes doesn't know how personal ads (or marriages) work and what really happens to the famous couple.

  • 31 - As Good As I Once Was

    July 15th, 2021  |  38 mins 2 secs
    as good as i once was, as good once as i ever was, color of money, excessive commas, keith, threesomes, toby, toby keith

    Break out your Stetson and some Wranglers and bind and gag Toby Keith! Marc and Seth tackle a real Southern anthem to incestuous threesomes and bailing your buddy out of shitty situations he chose to get himself into.... all tied together by one of the clunkiest attempts at a tagline ever. Fun!

  • 30 - Butterfly

    July 8th, 2021  |  1 hr 2 mins
    baby, butterflies, butterfly, crazy town, crazytown, shaky legs, sugar

    A supersized episode for a supersized piece of shit song! Marc and Seth recruit real Crazy Town professional Elyse in to help figure out what the fuck this song is. About as romantic as school bus crash, Shifty Shellshock and Epic Mazur pen this shitty poetry to some very unlucky women who would probably rather their eyes eaten out by rats.

  • 29 - By The Way

    July 2nd, 2021  |  48 mins 1 sec
    2 syllable words, blood bath, by the way, card shark, chili, hot, peppers, red, red hot chili peppers, rhcp, rib cage

    After putting it off as long as they could, Marc and Seth finally take on the task of trying to decipher some of Anthony Kiedis' inane lyrics... and this one is a humdinger. Filled with placeholder two-syllable nonsense and shitty lines that are held together by duct tape, this song is too good for the words inside of it.

  • 28 - Seventeen

    June 25th, 2021  |  40 mins 43 secs
    17, creep factor, daddy, jailbait, questionable content, seventeen, winger

    Marc and Seth take on Kip, Reb and Co. while breaking down the song Seventeen by Winger. Not only is this song gross, but it also has a Tenet-esque timeline where we're seemingly jumping through portals. Who would've guessed a guy named Kip would be an unreliable narrator?

  • 27 - Cocaine

    June 18th, 2021  |  47 mins 52 secs
    alcohol, clapton, cocaine, eric, eric clapton, heroin, jj cale, slow hand, slowhand

    Seth and Marc invite old friend and Cocaine Specialist John Cappozzo over to discuss the "anti-drug" song Cocaine. Originally written by JJ Cale and made famous by Cocaine Specialist Eric Clapton, this song has the rhyming scheme of a 3rd graders' poetry and sounds like cocaine is pretty handy... especially for an "anti-drug" song.

  • 26 - Pardon Me

    June 11th, 2021  |  36 mins
    3-d, calamity, combustication, combustion, incubus, pardon me, spontaneous, succubus

    Seth and Marc listen to Brandon Boyd and Co. make a mountain out of a molehill. Make no mistake about it... 23 was a rough age for the singer-cum-sex icon. But so bad that he was on the verge of exploding? We hardly think so.
