Episodes

  • 75 - Working For The Weekend

    May 20th, 2022  |  40 mins 34 secs
    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.

  • 74 - Bubble Toes

    May 13th, 2022  |  56 mins 30 secs
    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....

  • 73 - Steal My Sunshine

    May 6th, 2022  |  59 mins 58 secs
    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.

  • 72 - Follow Me

    April 29th, 2022  |  51 mins 16 secs
    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.

  • 71 - Tonight (I'm Fucking You)

    April 22nd, 2022  |  45 mins 6 secs
    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.

  • 70 - Breakfast At Tiffany's

    April 15th, 2022  |  48 mins 40 secs
    breakfast at tiffany's, deep blue something, shitty boyfriends, shitty relationships, shitty songs

    Marc releases his wrath on a song that's been bugging him a little more than he realized and Seth lends a supportive ear. The target of their woes? Breakfast At Tiffany's. A song so offensive in its mediocrity that it's driven the guys to the brink of madness. Listen to them vent about everything from the racism in the movie to the fact that the song wasn't inspired by the movie at all.

  • 69 - Kiss From A Rose

    April 8th, 2022  |  40 mins 58 secs
    a bunch of cocaine, cocaine, kiss from a rose, love, maybe vaginas, more cocaine, seal, wow look at that cocaine

    Seth and Marc wade through the mess of "mystery" lyrics that seem pretty obvious with Seal's's's Kiss From A Rose. How can a song so good also be so dumb? Get deep into the YA poetry of the song that almost got scrapped.

  • 68 - Voodoo

    April 1st, 2022  |  42 mins 56 secs
    alice in chains cover band, bullshit lies, cold sores, cultural appropriation, godsmack, voodoo

    Marc and Seth travel deep into the heart of Haiti to uncover the secret to becoming a "zombi" and, instead, come back with this hunk of shit. Sully and crew write a song that sounds like it's about heroin but is instead about something much more boring.... a movie. The guys go through this with a fine-toothed comb but not before calling them on their bullshit claim surrounding their name.

  • 67 - Hot Blooded

    March 25th, 2022  |  40 mins 52 secs
    creepy white dudes, foreigner, hot blooded, secret rendezvous, std side effects

    Is it a byproduct of some yet-to-be-named disease? Is it just good ol' fashioned horniness? Whatever it is, the boys in Foreigner are Hot Blooded and they are open to the idea of you looking for yourself. Seth and Marc get into the increasingly creepy 70's anthem about how hard it was to be a rocker in the golden age of rock.

  • 66 - Love The One You're With

    March 18th, 2022  |  39 mins 54 secs
    cnbc, cnn, csi, csn, csny, csy2k, fisted gloves, polyamory, stephen stills

    Let's get into some good ol' fashioned folk. Back when someone would say "Hey, cat. You look bummed out. Just go fuck someone to forget about that person you're in love with." Marc and Seth get in the wayback machine to a simpler time when people just sexed their troubles away and talked about things like "fisted gloves" in Stephen Stills' hit Love The One You're With.

  • 65 - Sunglasses At Night

    March 11th, 2022  |  41 mins 10 secs
    corey hart, darkness, sunglasses at night, switchblades, third person, weirdo

    Is that partial 3rd person narration we hear? Is Corey Hart losing his marbles? Seth and Marc feel around for some rhyme or reason to the 80's creepy hit that is apparently about being cheated on and trying to not see it? Except it doesn't really succeed in explaining what the fuck is going on and reads like a weirdo talking about switchblades.

  • 64 - Chop Suey

    March 4th, 2022  |  59 mins 17 secs
    chop suey, father, keys, soad, suicide, system of a down, whispering

    WAKE UP! Marc and Seth are joined by screen printing professional and all-around bad ass Joe Lachut to... be kind of surprised by the lyrics to an angry circus song. We get into the thick of the verse and chorus that just repeats plus that other part and talk about weird delivery working overtime against lyrics that are actually pretty captivating.

  • 63 - Lullaby

    February 25th, 2022  |  49 mins 51 secs
    creepy vocals, lullaby, rockaby, self-indulgent lyric laughing, shawn mullins, yikes

    Seth and Marc field a request for a song that resides deep in the depths of Marc's hate bin. Lullaby; the song that Shawn Mullins is so enamored with, he laughs at his own lyrics. Listen to Beck-lite pull an opposite of Hey Jude and take a better song and make it sad. Good luck sleeping after hearing Ol' Man Mullins talk like a sketchy heroin dealer trying to "lull" your 9 year old daughter.

  • 62 - Don't You Want Me

    February 17th, 2022  |  37 mins 4 secs
    big yikes, coercion, don't you want me, jealousy, mistaken love songs, the human league, threats

    I was hosting a podcast with my good friend Seth... that much is true. This song is about being a real creepy dick, did you ever have a clue? Listen in as the guys listen to the threats and coercion of a jealous shitbag who can't stand someone leaving him. Sounds like she's out of his.... Human League.

  • 61 - Raise Your Glass

    February 11th, 2022  |  39 mins 25 secs
    alcoholism, panty snatching, party crashing, peer pressure, pink, raise your glass, the joker

    Marc and Seth Raise their respective Glasses to the best panty snatcher of them all... Pink! On this episode, listen as she lures all of the miscreants of the world into non-stop drinking and wishing for them to just freak out (whatever that entails.)

  • 60 - Who Made Who

    February 3rd, 2022  |  41 mins 21 secs
    ac, ac/dc, coke binges, dc, robot overlords, shitty directing, stephen king, who made who

    Seth and Marc talk about the title track of the soundtrack to Stephen King's coke-fueled directorial debut AND finale Maximum Overdrive. It also asks one of the dumbest faux philosophical questions of our age: Who Made Who? Listen to Marc's Elmo version of Brian Johnson as the guys try to figure out what the fuck is happening here.
