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,

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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?

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.

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.

ace ventura, bestiality, date rape, drugging, fuzzy navel, loc, tone, tone loc, transphobia
Seth and Marc put on some thick gold chains and bust it b-boy style with one of the strangest pro-date/pro-bestiality/pro-transphobic songs of all time. Every verse gets stranger culminating in what finally makes him hang up his concoction... the threat of marriage!

80's drums, africa, national geographic, olympus, serengeti, toto
Seth and Marc do that cool thing where someone clears off the table with a big swipe and unfurl a large map of the Motherland Of Humanity: Africa! Unfortunately, it was written by some dorky white musical prodigies who only knew the continent from Nat Geo and commercials. A failed love plot briefly mentioned, "mystical lyrics" by way of bad poetry, and geographical errors. We're here for it.
