    Nathan and Jacob fulfil a small dream as they review a much-berated album by their idol, Sir Paul McCartney!
    In the middle of the 80s (and the midst of his own creative drought), McCartney teams up with renowned producer, Hugh Padgham, to create an album of songs about summer, ancient civilisations, film sets, and old men talking about birds. 
    But is it as bad as everyone says it is? Will these two McCartney superfans be forced to admit their hero got it wrong? Let's find out.

    Valentine's Day

    Valentine's Day

    Reviewing the worst of the worst - so you don't have to!
    Nathan and Jacob sit down for their first film review in a VERY long time and it is a doozy - 2010's ensemble romantic comedy, Valentine's Day.
    With a cast full of famous names, Valentine's Day attempts to juggle multiple love stories across a single day in LA. The boys try to wade through a mess of plots, underdeveloped characters, and cheesy clichés.
    Will the star-studded cast (including Taylor Swift's acting debut) be enough to make this film worthwhile? Let's find out.

    The Dutchess

    The Dutchess

    Reviewing the worst of the worst - so you don't have to!
    Nathan and Jacob are back for 2022 and kick things off with one of the biggest names in noughties pop history!
    The boys review The Black-Eyed Peas' Fergie's solo debut album, The Dutchess (with a T), and tackle some of the biggest-selling and most famous songs in Bad Things history - as well as some rarities and oddities (emphasis on the "odd" part).
    Samples aplenty, weird metaphors, geographical errors, The Duchess of York, Will.i.am, this album has it all! But is it actually bad?

    This Christmas

    This Christmas

    Reviewing the worst of the worst - so you don't have to!
    Nathan and Jacob gather round the Christmas tree for another festive flop!
    This year, John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John have been put on the naughty list for their 2012 album, This Christmas. The album is stuffed with holiday standards and favourites alongside one original song that will blow your mind.
    Join the boys as they navigate some dodgy singing, familiar guest stars, Nathan getting emotional about old Christmas music, and some Bad Things-themed gift-giving.

    Michael

    Michael

    Reviewing the worst of the worst - so you don't have to!
    Nathan and Jacob tackle one of their most treacherous topics to date as they review the first posthumous release from Michael Jackson - 2010's Michael.
    Released just months after the troubled star's death, Michael is a hodgepodge of unfinished and unreleased songs cobbled together by a ea of producers and guest vocalists. Oh, and some of the songs may not actually be sung by MJ.
    Join the boys as they recount MJ's life, play a game of "Michael or Not Michael" with the songs, and try and work out if this album was actually worth it.
