Mike Henneberger stops by to talk with the guys about some super heavy themes that are super present in all the songs and bands we talk about every week. Staples of the genre include depression, anxiety, hopelessness, and helplessness. I mean, it’s not called emo for nothing…
10 years ago, Mike spent a hopeless weekend in a downtown NYC hotel room and penned an autobiography on some of the worst days of his life and how they align with the lyrics of some of his favorite songs that he holds dear. It’s important to know that no matter how low it feels, there’s always a reason to keep fighting for your life. There is a reason for you, your story matters, and your life matters.
But it’s not all that heavy, the guys also talk about the role that Christianity played in the music scene in the 90s and 2000’s, Mike tells some tales of working at Hot Topic, and Taylor Swift, Weezer, and The Killers make an appearance. Mike also tells his reason for choosing Teen Wolf’s Tyler Posey as the narrator of his upcoming audiobook.
