awful, coochie, fever for the flava, hoochie, hot action cop, sticky sticky
A song so bad that Seth and Marc had to just jump into it. It's every kind of bad a song can be.... it's Hot Action Cop talking about being addicted to the "flava" of vaginas and begging a woman to stick various things in her until she finally relents, I guess. Atrocious. All we can do is hope the titular fever is terminal.

cold coffee, is she really going out with him, jealousy, joe jackson, manslaughter, stalking
Who had "Joe Jackson is a borderline incel" on their 1979 bingo card? I certainly didn't. But here we are... stalking, possibly racist comments, and maybe even some manslaughter thrown in for good measure all because women he is obsessed with are fucking other guys he think are ugly. Yes, Joe... something IS going wrong around here.

des'ree, ghost, life, most, terrible lyrics, toast, ugh
Easy work for the guys this week with a song that was voted Worst Lyrics by a BBC show; Life by Des'ree. Not only are the lyrics simple and terrible, but they're also random and terrible. And terrible. Oof. Terrible.

3oh!3, ableism, don't trust me, misogyny, negging
What has 2 heads, 4 eyes, one Ultimate Frisbee Championship, and a hit song chock full of misogyny and cringey lyrics? That's right... it's 3OH!3! Marc and Seth try to unravel whatever the fuck is going on with this shithead negging madman who decides that the best way to a woman's heart is telling her to shut up and then make fun of a disabled person. Interesting....

american, american bad ass, ass, bad, fake poor, homophobia, horsegirl, kid rock
Seth and Marc usher in the one man more American Bad Asser than Kid Rock.... Nick Hanlon to the rescue! The guys get together to talk about the Larry The Cable Guy of Country Rap. Robert Ritchie, ex-horse watcher on 6 acres, talking about the double wide life, how he doesn't "play with ass," and referencing the Oklahoma City bombing.

dark alleys, kings of leon, necrophilia, roadhead, sex on fire, silent sex
Does anyone smell that? Is that burnt hair? Melting plastic? Oh, I'm sorry.... That's just someone's Sex On Fire. Seth and Marc take on the Followill Clan's 2008 hit about.... maybe having sex with a dead person? Definitely about roadhead. And "kiddie-like playing" which is problematic on a few levels. Y I K E S.

anger management, break stuff, breakstuff, chainsaw obsession, limp bizkit, yikes
The guys get into the sick mind of Frederick Durst and his merry band of misfits this week with Break Stuff. A song that dares to ask the tough questions like "have you ever had one of those days?" and "how about I break your fucking face?" (yes and no respectively, for the record.) Hit play and take a ride with the biggest chainsaw wielding madman since Leatherface.

creepy, daughter/mom threesomes, maroon 5. maroon five, she will be loved, songs for jane, voyeurism
Seth and Marc take Adam Levine and his 4 red brethren on with the vaguely-threatening-sounding She Will Be Loved. Is this song about a prostitute? Is it written in first or third person? What in the fuck is going on in the music video? Every step forward creates more questions.

complete bs, oops, placeholder lyrics, toad the wet sprocket, ttws, walk on the ocean
Marc is outnumbered as he goes toe-to-toe against not just Seth but also very special guest Patrick who brought this song to our doorstep like the Barely Breathing carcass of a rodent left by a proud cat. The name of that carcass is Walk On The Ocean by Toad The Wet Sprocket.... a strange name for a rodent, we agree. Much to Marc's chagrin, the writer of the lyrics agrees that the song is hogwash. Still, Marc forges ahead. Who wins in your heart?

awful freestyling, fake rastarians, not knowing how poker works, o.a.r., oar, of a revolution, poker, that was a crazy game of poker
This is a new low on the podcast ladies, gentlemen and everyone in between. Technically not a single, it's a popular song within certain circles and it's just so bad all around we had to do it... O.A.R.'s "That Was A Crazy Game Of Poker" is so terrible, Seth and Marc find themselves mute at times before spiraling into anger and anguish. Grab some popcorn.... it's a long one.

fucked up lyrics, pepa, salt, salt and pepe, shoop, spinderella 1 spinderella 2, super sperm
I dare any horny people out there to go toe-to-toe with Salt and/or Pepa! This song is all about getting juicy in nature's humidifier by looking at attractive black men. But the song starts to take a weird turn and by the third verse, it's falling apart. Throw an epithet in there and some powerful semen and you've got a full-blown train wreck by the end. This song makes me want to take a shoop.

baby, galloping guitars, let's go, loverboy, probably cocaine, weekend, working, working for the weekend
Seth and Marc think they have an easy week ahead of them.... just some dumb lyrics about getting caught up in the rat race of a 9 to 5 job, right? We're not so sure... this song is chock full of deity-esque allusions and instructions on how to take a piece of someone's heart. And who are they singing to? To find out, we gotta start from the start.

bad poetry, bubble, bubble toes, foot deformity, jack johnson, toes, white rapping
Hawaii is the home to some gorgeous culture and scenery... it is also responsible for the man who did this. Seth and Marc try to work through the college bros' Anthony Kiedis who bought an acoustic guitar instead of putting a sock on his dick. A love song that was almost certainly written while on pills of some kind, this somehow helped him manage to win over a beautiful woman so who are we to judge? Yet, here we are....

drugs, len, possible incest, raves, steal my sunshine, yikes
Imagine if you went to a rave, probably did a lot of drugs, laying in the grass, were in the middle of a fight with your sister, and wrote a song about how you were feeling in "tribal lunar speak." You'd probably get whatever the fuck mess this is. Seth and Marc bob their heads to a great sample with lyrics that sink this bad boy like the Edmund Fitzgerald.

doe eyes, double wide, follow me, infidelity, uncle kracker, white trash pride
Marc and Seth are here with Uncle Kracker to tuck you in a night behind your husband's back. Let the needle drop on the hit album Double Wide and let the radio waves wash over you with a sweet song about infidelity and empty promises. It's probably better that you won't find nobody else like him.

cryptic lines, enrique iglesias, gross, i'm fucking you, pre-determined sex, tonight
Surprise! You're getting fucked by Enrique Iglesias whether you knew it or not. Seth and Marc comb through the "not arrogant" lyrics of Tonight (I'm Fucking You) which turns out to be incredibly arrogant. Who knew?! Listen to the guys comb through one of the highest Creep Factors they've had in a minute.
