Episodes

    Seth and Marc look past the first 2 better known verses of Jailhouse Rock by Elvis Presley and discover a little surprise!

    October 2nd, 2023  |  58 mins 43 secs
    billy squire, insanity, loneliness, lonely, lonely is the night

    The guys revisit Billy Squire with his early 80's hit non-single and best attempt at a Led Zeppelin song: Lonely Is The Night. These lyrics are an unmitigated disaster and even Billy's weak explanation leaves us scratching our heads... join us on our descent into madness.

  • 144 - Love In An Elevator

    September 25th, 2023  |  1 hr 5 mins
    aerosmith, horny, joey perry, love in an elevator, public sex, pump, steve perry, steve tyler, tyler perry

    Today, Seth and Marc find themselves in an elevator with New England's own Aerosmith for their ultra horny single Love In An Elevator. We discuss the music video, the complications of oral sex in an elevator, and the death wish hidden within.

  • 143 - The Way

    September 18th, 2023  |  48 mins 40 secs
    alzheimer's, brain surgery, fastball, road trips, texas stories, the way

    The guys unveil the true story behind the 90's hit The Way which catapulted Fastball into the limelight. The lyrics, which seem to be about a couple who decide to shrug off the banality of the normal life in exchange for a life roaming the world, actually have a much sadder history.

  • 142 - Stacy's Mom

    September 11th, 2023  |  1 hr 2 mins
    fountains of wayne, hornier kids, horny moms, moms, stacy, stacy's mom

    Marc and a very horned-up Seth talk about a power pop song for all of the niche demographic of "boys who are into the mom of a girl that has a thing for them instead of the girl"... Stacy's Mom from Fountains of Wayne. Is this song about a woman who is trying to turn a prepubescent on or is he just reading too into things? Or both?

  • 141 - Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap

    September 4th, 2023  |  54 mins 40 secs
    ac/dc, bon scott, dirty deeds, dirty deeds done dirt cheap, murder for hire, sex for hire

    The guys take another trip down AC/DC lane with their perplexing hit Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap. 3 verses about people who have been wronged and trying to figure out exactly what he's doing to each of them. Sex? Murder? Contract negotiations? What in the fuck is going on?

  • 140 - Nights On Broadway

    August 28th, 2023  |  47 mins 4 secs
    barry gibb, hiding in the dark, maurice gibb, robin gibb, son of sam, stalking, the bee gees

    Seth and Marc get funky with the Bee Gee's stalker anthem Nights On Broadway. Not their biggest hit, but definitely up there with the creepiest. One part waiting in the dark and one part voices-in-his-head, the Brothers Gibb go in deep with the first single to highlight their famous falsetto.

  • 139 - Livin' La Vida Loca

    August 21st, 2023  |  1 hr 10 mins
    livin' la vida loca, murder as pain relief, ricky martin, spanish

    Seth and Marc are entranced by the sultry sounds of Ricky Martin's hit Livin' La Vida Loca. A catchy ditty that tells the story of a woman who is up to some real creepy shit like black cats and voodoo dolls.

  • 138 - Animal (Fuck Like A Beast)

    August 14th, 2023  |  55 mins 7 secs
    animal, fuck like a beast, predatory, stalking, two dogs having sex, w.a.s.p.

    Seth and Marc invite metal lover and Strip Club Mom Doug Davison to splay open the W.A.S.P. single Animal (Fuck Like A Beast). Starts out aggressively horny and turns aggressively aggressive AND horny.

  • 137 - Zombie

    August 7th, 2023  |  1 hr 22 mins
    bombs, england, guns, ieds, ireland, tanks, the cranberries, the troubles, zombie

    The guys get serious this week talking about the real meaning behind a quintessential 90's song: Zombie by The Cranberries. Due to its title, it shows up on countless Halloween playlists but is about something much more fiendish than All Hallow's Eve: The Troubles.

  • 136 - She's A Beauty

    July 31st, 2023  |  51 mins 27 secs
    80's, carnies, kenny ortega, objectification, she's a beauty, the tubes

    Step right up... and don't be shy! The guys get to look inside another world and talk about this heaping pile of 80's objectification brought to you by The Tubes. With lyrics that stem from the singer's encounter at a peep show, what could go wrong?

  • 135 - Love Gun

    July 24th, 2023  |  1 hr 21 secs
    gaslighting, kiss, love gun, paul stanley, possible domestic abuse

    Seth and Marc crack open another song from the Knights In Satan's Service; and this time, it's Love Gun! Seems simple enough: a song about the singers dick. But are there more sinister things at play? We think so.

  • 134 - Hook

    July 17th, 2023  |  1 hr 15 mins
    blues traveler, but yikes, cleverness, hook

    Every once in a while, the guys have something nice to say.... and this is one of those times. Well, about the song at least. They get into the inner workings of Hook by Blues Traveler which is much more clever than most people that have passively listened to it may have realized.

  • 133 - Bad Day

    July 10th, 2023  |  1 hr 10 mins
    american idol, bad day, bootstrap culture, daniel powter

    The guys get deep into the weeds trying to make heads or tales out of Daniel Powter's unfortunate hit song Bad Day. A song that became so loved but seems to be rolling its proverbial eyes at anyone really going through a rough patch in life... the kind of an attitude only a guy who always wears a beanie could have.

  • 132 - The Wanderer

    July 3rd, 2023  |  48 mins 59 secs
    around around around, bad dudes, dion, dion and the belmonts, objectification, sad dudes, the wanderer

    Seth and Marc are up for a little surprise with Dion's The Wanderer.... or are they? What looks like it's a song about a horny dude who sees women as nothing but the holes they have might be about something a lot sadder.

  • 131 - Hungry Eyes

    June 26th, 2023  |  51 mins 34 secs
    eric carmen, eric cartman, hungry eyes, mind games, robocop, terminator

    Finally, the guys get to dissect someone that Seth has had on his creep-dar from the jump: Eric Carmen with the Dirty Dancing hit Hungry Eyes. A classic of "I know you want me, so you may as well give in" complete with having someone "in [his] sights." For the love of Christ.
