    Why are GAMERS mad about the Oscar for Best Original Score?

    Why are GAMERS mad about the Oscar for Best Original Score?

    This is about music, really. It just happens to involve a lot of talk about video games.
    The Gamers are mad at Ludwig Goransson for comments made in his acceptance speech for his Academy Award for Best Original Score.
    Ludwig's done a lot of great work, what have video games ever done?

    Vapor Synth Dungeon Wave

    Vapor Synth Dungeon Wave

    Is Winger PROG Now!?

    Your Music Is Bad Episode 77
    We listen to Winger's new record "Seven" as well as their "classic" 90s album "Pull" which they will be performing in its entirety while headlining ProgPower USA in 2024
    Matt and Blake attempt to unravel the more mature themes and lyrics on these albums as well as the extremely 80s not-so-mature ones, which are also definitely still there
    Is Pain of Salvation influenced by Winger or are Winger influenced by Pain of Salvation?

    Settle Down, Scardust!

    Settle Down, Scardust!

    Your Music Is Bad Episode 78 - Settle Down, Scardust!
    Matt and Blake stumbled onto Scardust on YouTube, and while they are a perfectly competent symphonic prog metal band, they are very annoying and also their music is bad.
    Matt Lee and Blake Robertson stumbled onto Israeli symphonic prog metal band Scardust
    While not reading too much into their song about taming the land or whatever (yikes) but focusing on their diddly-doos and idiot choir chorus, they can see how a fan of The Prog might appreciate this competent yet very annoying band.
