Every Thursday, Andrew and Evan Gregory (of The Gregory Brothers) are joined by a special guest to revisit, review, and revise a song of their choice, and then offer an improved "punched-up" version.

    'Imagine' by John Lennon (w/ Arthur Meyer)

    'Imagine' by John Lennon (w/ Arthur Meyer)

    Imagine a world that is in every possible respect different from our own. Yeah, just give it a whirl. It's easy if you TRY.  ...So says history's biggest imagination bully, John Lennon. We rip off the uplifting latex face mask of this song and bare the dark soul within: this song thinks it's better than you. Our very very prepared guest Arthur Meyer (The Tonight Show, The Onion) has some extremely helpful punch-up suggestions, and helps us roam through discussions of global resource scarcity, Russell Crowe, and the top-secret-but-real Clearchannel "Do Not Play" List! 

    Guest: Arthur Meyer (here's his album of Beatles covers)

    Walk-in music: 'Planets' by Joseph; 'Monkberry Moon Delight' by Linda McCartney and Paul McCartney; 'Another Night' by M.C. Sar and Real McCoy. 

    NOTE: This ep was recorded before Andrew went on paternity leave. Nice to hear his familiar voice though. Instead of just imagining it. Which is easy, if you try. 

    "Wipe that smirk off your face!"

    'I'm Not Okay' by My Chemical Romance (w/ Gianmarco Soresi)

    'I'm Not Okay' by My Chemical Romance (w/ Gianmarco Soresi)

    ARE YOU OKAY? Gianmarco Soresi stops by the podcast to discuss goths, outsized teenage emotions, music made in response to 9/11, debate the attractiveness of a sulky man, and much more. Read the bad, bad book that is this episode because unlike your jock boyfriend, this podcast just gets you.

    Guest: Gianmarco Soresi

    Walk-in music: 'Get Free' by The Vines; 'X Gon' Give It To Ya' by DMX.

    'Frontin' by Pharrell (w/ Negin Farsad)

    'Frontin' by Pharrell (w/ Negin Farsad)

    Pharrell originally pitched this song to Prince, and we can confidently say, we’re glad Prince said no! This song rules! Makes you think, maybe Prince should have said no to more things! Negin Farsad returns to the pod bringing some personal history with this Pharrell feat. Jay-Z classic, and frankly more personal history than we needed as she recounts some shocking schoolyard taunts. Evan spends way too much time talking about cupping melons in the grocery store, and eventually punches Frontin up to much applause. 

    Guest: Negin Farsad (Fake The Nation, Birdgirl)

    Walk-in music: 'Rock Your Body' by Justin Timberlake; 'Boasty' by Wiley (Ft. Stefflon Don, Sean Paul, & Idris Elba)

    'Mr. Blue Sky' by ELO (w/ Amy Miller)

    'Mr. Blue Sky' by ELO (w/ Amy Miller)

    If you spent 6 weeks in a Swiss chalet, you'd probably write a beloved, feel-good rock hit too. Evan and comedian Amy Miller get into airplane etiquette like a couple of 90's stand-ups, an Elmer Fudd-ELO conspiracy like a couple of academic theorists, and wax problematic on humans having koala babies. Tune in to hear Evan punch-up this classic!

    Guest: Amy Miller

    Walk-in music: 'O Superman' by Laurie Anderson; 'If U Seek Amy' by Britney Spears.

    'Beggin' by Måneskin (w/ Daniel Thrasher)

    'Beggin' by Måneskin (w/ Daniel Thrasher)

    I’m beggin, beggin you, to listen to this tale of how evil bond-style supervillains are conspiring to take over society with This One New Sound that is actually old and grates on your ears. Daniel Thrasher stops into the pod before going out on tour to share the reason he hates this Måneskin song (apparently it’s a C#). Michael Gregory guest hosts to support Evan’s mental health (Evan really tests the bounds of sanity with this week’s punch)

    Guest: Daniel Thrasher

    Walk-in music: 'Tiptoe Through The Tulips' by Tiny Tim; 'Grazing In The Grass' by The Friends of Distinction.

    'I Get Around' by The Beach Boys (w/ Tim Daniels)

    'I Get Around' by The Beach Boys (w/ Tim Daniels)

    Evan's losing his mind and has Friend of the Pod and Beachboyologist Tim Daniels (The Complete Guide to Everything) in for triage. The Beach Boys: They got around in every way you’re thinking. In the fictional but sort of autobiographical world of this song there’s drag racing, hot promiscuous sex, bragging about fat stacks, and “cool head”, yikes. In the real world there was abuse, fights, drowning, beefing with other bands, not to mention the Manson family stuff. As the Beachies sang, Fun, Fun, FUN!

    Guest: Tim Daniels

    Walk-in music: 'Taboo' by Caterina Valente; 'Revolution Blues' by Neil Young.

Elsonn ,

Yesssss!

I’m laughing out loud so much with my head phones in and my kids and husband thinking I’m going mad, laughing alone in the laundry room. Y’all crack me the f up. Btw-I graduated hs in 1996, so I love the variety. Keep it up. So glad the show is back. I started with OG’s but love the new guys! Thursday is my fav day of the week. The soundboard is fire.

Punch up the show

I was excited to see that the show was coming back but the new version/hosts are not enjoyable to listen to. You’d be better served just listening to old episodes from when the show was fun and interesting. This version is really just boring.
