    EVERYBODY DANCE NOW - 90's Pop Bangers Vol. 1

    EVERYBODY DANCE NOW - 90's Pop Bangers Vol. 1

    Pump Up The Jam? Why yes, we will. This week we're transforming the rented garage into a rented Middle School Auditorium circa 1992. Our moms have bought us some rad rayon shirts and we're totally psyched to do the running man to the biggest pop/Eurodance hits from the early 90's. From C&C Music Factory to Technotronic to Ace Of Base to Haddaway, let's party right up until that Ford Taurus station wagon takes us home. You guys want some cameos?

    PEARL JAM - Vs.

    PEARL JAM - Vs.

    The guys are back in the sterilized garage (a safe distance apart, of course) to tackle Pearl Jam's smash sophomore album, Vs. Let's go back to 1993, when Dan and Bob were social distancing by accident and Meatloaf was responsible for 7-minute erections. Escape is never the safest path -- but c'mon, what else do you have going on?

    COUNTING CROWS - August and Everything After

    Episode 100! Here we are! Thanks to all the Patreonies and people out there for making this happen! To celebrate, Dan and Bob are going to (a) burn down the garage, and (b) push play on the album that helped transform these two average 8th graders (slash-below-average-soccer-players) into award-winning Bosom Buddies. [Adam Duritz 'Rain King' Howl]: Yeahhhhhhh!

    THE WHITE STRIPES - White Blood Cells

    Episode 99 returns the guys to the epicenter of the Garage Rock Revival of 2001. The White Stripes. White Blood Cells. Anti-Venom to The Durst Virus. Bob almost talks about how important this album was to his “maturation” process. Dan is convinced he’s a better drummer than Meg White. Join us for the ride. I can tell that we are gonna be friends.

Let's go back to 1998 when upstate NY's finest scored a multiplatinum LP featuring LITERALLY the biggest song of the decade -- which somehow isn't even the best song on the album. Just ask Maude.

    FEBRUARY 2002 - Top 10 Countdown

    From Australia's Madonna to Canada's Creed to America's... Creed, 2002 had a lot of *interesting* music dominating the pop charts. This week, Dan and Bob travel back 18 years to revisit their senior year of college and check back in on the turn-of-the-century pop stars that you can still hear on the radio today. And Creed.

In my Wheelhouse

As a UK based fan of ATN I came for the old Zuser but fell in love with everything else about 5 mins into ep1. It’s almost like they’re talking about my own Late Teens Early 20s!!

Love the variety of music

Love the pod and it’s laid back feeling. As a Scottish guy it’s great to see you cover British albums, it would be really cool if you managed to cover the Stone Roses, the Verve or the Happy Monday’s!
