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.
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.
MAY '87 - Top 10 Countdown
Thirty-four-freaking-years ago the Billboard Top 100 was littered with unbelievable songs that defined the 80's. From U2 to Prince, from Crowded House to Starship, from Kool to His Gang, let's jump into the wayback machine and countdown the Top 10 hits of the first week of May, 1987. It's what we do best.
RADIOHEAD - The Bends
The boys are back in the Nü Garage for an all nü episode of the Throwback Pod! And what better way to celebrate their return from a long, unplanned hiatus than with one of the BEST ALBUMS EVER TACKLED ON THE POD! It's time to dig into 1995's The Bends, a great album and an even better soundtrack to Bob's legendary Kelsey Grammer story.
LIVE - Throwing Copper
Bob and Dan travel back to 1994 to listen to one of the biggest albums of the year, Throwing Copper. Between sharing "where were you when Kurt Cobain killed himself?" stories and diving into an X-Rated "Friends" discussion, you won't find a more 1994 podcast than this.
Amazing but not perfect
The real star of this show is Jason Zumwalt. I may never forgive Big Daddy Rich if the tale of his sexual awakening never hits the airwaves.
Better Than You’d Expect
These guys do a great job with what they have. Dan is very funny, and you’d never believe Bob is a comedian, but they overcome his dullness in an amazing way. Kudos. While mostly about music, their homoerotic relationship shines through nicely, making this a good progressive podcast and a solid under the radar LGBT option.
Best Pocast Out There For Rock Music Fans Born in 1980
Funny enough I was born in December 1979 yet I still get the majority of their references. All kidding aside people born in later 1979 and early 1981 should also enjoy this.
Seriously though this podcast is so funny. People in my neigborhood can't understand why I crack up so much while mowing my lawn. These guys are hilarious and I have gone back to listen to so much music I had forgotten about. Some of the best shows also are the ones about music that isn't in their wheelhouse.
Also they are both total cowards for not doing an episode about the 1st Arctic Monkeys album. What are you chicken ...bok...bok..bok
