Dan Hanzus and Bob Castrone love listening to music- almost as much as they love hanging out in a garage and talking about it. On The Throwback Podcast, lifelong friends revisit important albums from their past and go through them--track by track-- with fresh ears. From the classics to the cringeworthy, every week is a throwback.
JULY '97 - Alt Rock Countdown
People love the countdown episodes! Sure, July 1997 was only like, what, eight years ago, so it barely qualifies as a throwback, but that's not gonna stop Dan and Bob from revisiting a loaded alternative rock countdown. Tonic, Live, Sugar Ray, and more -- it's '97 baby!
BETTER THAN EZRA - Friction, Baby
Imagine a world where there's a podcast about Better Than Ezra and the hosts don't try to be funny by asking "who is Ezra anyway????" It seemed impossible... until now. The guys are back in the nü garage and ready to listen to the Patreon-poll winning Friction COMMA Baby by Louisiana's Tawl Curly & Company. Enjoy COMMA the show.
SMASHING PUMPKINS - Siamese Dream w/ Dave Dameshek
Today is the greatest day I've ever known … because Dave Dameshek is making his Throwback Podcast debut to talk about one of the favorite bands of his Chicago twentysomething years. Smashing Pumpkins week!
21st CENTURY RAWK - The Best RAWK Tracks Of The 2000's
Roll the windows down, crank the stereo up, bust open a brewski, drop out of high school, punch your mom in the face- it's time to RAWK! Hundreds and hundreds of straight-up RAWK tracks have been released over the past 21 years, so naturally it's time for a couple of old white guys in a garage to countdown a few of their faves. From the The Hives to The Hold Steady, from Audioslave to Against Me, we've got it all. Well... not quite. But a few great ones, at least.
If you stepped inside The Darkroom on Ludlow in 2005 there was a 97% chance you'd hear a song off Antics. And a a 98% chance you'd bump into Carlos D. For that reason, the time has finally come for Bob and Dan to Take You on a Cruise with Interpol. Over a year ago New York's drabbest boys in black won a Patreon poll, but it's taken until now for the guys in the garage to push PLAY. Let's do it.
LIMP BIZKIT - Significant Other
Well... you can only reside in the Nü Garage for so long before you cover some nü metal, right? Limp Bizkit's Significant Other sold 16 MILLION copies to 16 MILLION people with questionable taste, and now it's time for Dan and Bob to honor their Patreonies' wishes and cover the über successful album. Maybe it won't be as bad they suspect... right? Maybe? Let's see.
Give it a listen
Great podcast. Surprising amount of nudity.
Strangely good music pod about questionable quality music
Entertaining podcast that the music is secondary to the humor. Fortunately because they just scratch the surface of decent music from the time period they are reviewing in my opinion. I prefer a little bit more independent type music but nice to vibe out with dudes of a certain age.
5-star. just do yourself a favor and listen to this pod. huge back catalogue.. all worth listening to.
