  • 22 - Take A Chance On Me

    May 14th, 2021  |  35 mins 45 secs
    abba, forced love, love with air quotes around it, marrying your stalker, stalkers, stalking, take a chance on me

    Seth and Marc take a swan dive into the pathetic and increasingly rabid lyrics of Take A Chance On Me. Even the beautiful members of ABBA are sometimes on the non-receiving end of unrequited love and according to these words, they don't deal with it very well. It starts of sad and quickly gets pretty creepy.

  • 21 - Girl Watcher

    May 7th, 2021  |  30 mins 21 secs
    creeps, girl watching, girls, mmm mmm mmm, my my my, peeping toms, stalking, voyeurism, watching

    Seth and Marc are hopping into the Creep Delorean with Nice Guy's owner Greg Gebhard and saved a seat for you! Take a trip in the wayyyyyback machine... back to a time where a man could openly write a song about stalking women and probably jerking off in some nicely trimmed hedges. This song gets worse and worse as it goes on which is a special kind of hell and leaves you wondering where the story goes.

  • 20 - Little Things

    April 30th, 2021  |  28 mins 46 secs
    bush, little, little things, meth, ravioli, things, wolves

    It's Bush 2: Electric Bugaloo! Seth and Marc listen to some more this-or-that bullshit from Mr. Rossdale from a song that is allegedly about "feeling encumbered by life and overtaken by life and dwarfed by life" but also be about sweet, sweet methamphetamine. I KEELL!

  • 19 - Glycerine

    April 23rd, 2021  |  37 mins 42 secs
    bad lyrics, bad poetry, bush, glycerine, nirvana knockoffs, opposites

    Sometimes I'm Marc, sometimes you're Seth. Now I'm talking, always I'm silent. Bush sucks, Bush isn't good. Listen to Seth and Marc marvel at the tangled web of dichotomies that Gavin Rossdale weaves together like some kind of 7th grade spider.

  • 18 - Sugar, We're Going Down

    April 16th, 2021  |  28 mins 39 secs
    boy, creep, creepy, fall, fall out boy, out, spy kinks, sugar, voyeurism, we're going down

    Seth and Marc hide out in the closet with Pete Wentz & Co. for the whiny rock anthem of the Aughts. Clumsy metaphors are abound in this wannabe-gotcha "emo" song that is unfortunately too catchy than it has any right to be.

  • 17 - Summer Girls

    April 9th, 2021  |  52 mins 22 secs
    band death, funkie, girls, lfo, lyte, mmer girls, ones, pro-choice, summer

    Seth and Marc peel back a few layers of the lyrical onion that is the 1999 feel-good(?) summer hit aptly titled Summer Girls. Filled to the brim with "inside jokes" and non-sequiturs like a glass full of lemonade on a hot July day... except lemonade is good and this song sucks.

  • 16 - Save A Horse, Ride A Cowboy

    April 2nd, 2021  |  40 mins 49 secs
    big, big and rich, horse sex, mr. hand, rich, ride a cowboy, save a horse, thoroughbred, zoo

    The guys tackle their first country song and look deep into the true meaning of Big And Rich as an entity; are they one? At the same time, they ponder the shrouded world of horse kinks and whether or not this song supports it.

  • 15 - In The Summertime

    March 26th, 2021  |  41 mins 4 secs
    anti-poor, classism, drinking, driving, in the summertime, jerry, mungo, mungo jerry, road head

    Seth and Marc invite another elusive Ford Brother into the mix. Matt helps them weed through the classism, pro-drunk driving, and forced-sex narrative of the summer feel-good hit In The Summertime.

  • 14 - Rockstar

    March 19th, 2021  |  46 mins 49 secs
    ass'les, big bathrooms, nickelback, rockstar, tassholes, tassles

    Despite owning up to the fact that they might be nice and even a tad talented, Seth and Marc take great joy in tearing apart Nickelback... specifically the schlock that is the hit song Rockstar. Overly-excited lyrics about anorexia nervosa, drug use that sounds like it would kill a small elephant, and an unhealthy addiction to all things Playboy as well as a comparison to Elvis? Get out of here.

  • 13 - Dance Hall Days

    March 12th, 2021  |  36 mins 44 secs
    american psycho, chung, creepy, dance, dancehalls, days, hall, manipulation, wang, wang chung

    Marc and Seth dive deep into the mind of the Patrick Bateman-esque singer of Wang Hung (not Hung Chung.) Join them on their nostalgic trip down memory lane back when you could grab your lady by whatever you wanted to and try to manipulate her by using her "darkest fears" against her through the power of suggestion.

  • 12 - Come With Me

    March 5th, 2021  |  1 hr 4 mins
    come with me, godzilla, gojira, mutual masturbation, p diddy, puff daddy, sean combs, sean puffy combs

    Seth and Marc welcome their first guest; Co-host of the Know Nonsense Trivia Podcast Lee Bretschneider! Together, we discuss the atrocious Puff Daddy song replete with Godzilla screams and the worst Robert Plant impression on record.

  • 11 - Hey Soul Sister

    February 26th, 2021  |  36 mins 1 sec
    cringe, hey, hey soul sister, pat monahan, soul sister, sweet moonbeam, train, untrimmed chest

    Seth and Marc put themselves through the pain and horror of TWO Train songs back-to-back. Here, the guys attempt to untangle everything from Pat Monahan's cryptic reference to a moonbeam to his untrimmed chest.

  • 10 - Drops Of Jupiter (Tell Me)

    February 19th, 2021  |  42 mins 59 secs
    deep fried chicken, drop, drops of jupiter, gas giant, me, soy latte, train

    The guys stumble upon a fact that throws all preconceived notions out the window! Luckily, the words are so shitty that they have no issues. Narcissism, possible mother-son sexual fantasties, and soy lattes. This song has it all.

  • 09 - Run For Your Life

    February 12th, 2021  |  45 mins 43 secs
    beatles, big yikes, guy, jealous, john lennon, lots of therapy, paul mccartney, the beatles, therapy, yikes

    With heaviness and sadness in their hearts, Marc and Seth have to take on one of their favorite bands of all time... which is a little easier to do when said band is threatening and gaslighting a partner they repeatedly refer to as "little girl."

  • 08 - Wango Tango

    February 5th, 2021  |  44 mins 30 secs
    car fucking, motor city madman, tango, ted nugent, the nuge, wango, wango tango

    Seth and Marc weed through the less-than-subtle Motor City Madman atrocity Wango Tango and Nuge's desire to have coitus with an automobile-cum-woman a la Diamond Dave in Panama.

  • 07 - Brown Sugar

    January 29th, 2021  |  34 mins 36 secs
    brown, fetishism, sugar, the rolling stones, weird

    On this episode, Marc and Seth come face-to-face with the troublesome lyrics of a song they both love dearly in Brown Sugar by The Rolling Stones.
