    Episode 0211: Bonus - These Songs Slap Vol. 2

    Positivity reigns in this super-sized bonus episode: These Songs Slap Vol. 2! Cole Smith joins Hayden and Josh to discuss "Mythological Beauty" by Big Thief and "Waltz No.2 (XO)" by Elliott Smith. Serious music analysis abounds in this episode, but the fellas somehow find a way to steer the conversation towards cheap beer and jalapeño poppers. Season 3 drops soon, so let this tide you over until then.

    "It's Been Awhile" by Staind

    "It's Been Awhile" by Staind

    The boys are joined by Gabe Hostetler this week to take a trip back to middle school, which is about the time when people thought "It's Been Awhile" by Staind was a good song. This is a doozy of a season finale as all three of the fellas livd, laughd, and lovd mightily during the episode.
    Much time is spent poking fun at the ripped-off Korn riffs of early Staind, but the hosts do eventually talk about "It's Been Awhile", coming to the conclusion that the song is just a gray, flavorless pile of slop.

    "Don't Stop Believin'" by Journey

    "Don't Stop Believin'" by Journey

    Austin Lancaster joins Josh and Hayden to pick apart the karaoke favorite "Don't Stop Believin'" by Journey. Does everyone love this song for some reason? Yes. Does that automatically make it good? Heck no.
    Austin takes us into his past to explain why the song holds a particularly hated place in his heart, Josh unearths some questionable bass playing, and Hayden is pretty sure that Journey's manager was actually a cast member on Seinfeld.

    "Pour Some Sugar on Me" by Def Leppard

    "Pour Some Sugar on Me" by Def Leppard

    The boys are joined by Soapy Jones this week for a discussion of one of her least favorite songs, "Pour Some Sugar on Me" by Def Leppard. Or is it by Motley Crüe? Does it even matter when the song sucks this much?
    Soapy thinks that the entire song must have been recorded in an airplane hangar, Josh whips out the ol' axe to poke fun at the backing guitar, and Hayden asks what is probably the most important questions of our time: what the hell is Dokken?

    "Bad Guy" by Billie Eilish

    "Bad Guy" by Billie Eilish

    Josh and Hayden get taken down a peg or two by this week's guest host, Natalie Morrow, as they discuss Billie Eilish's hit "Bad Guy." This one is sure to appeal those of you that aren't big fans of Josh or Hayden (i.e. most of you).
    Josh stands alone on his island of criticism as Natalie chooses to enjoy the song for what it is and Hayden changes his mind about the song after seeing the music video. There is one thing they can all agree on though: ToeJam & Earl kicks ass.

    "Beverly Hills" by Weezer

    "Beverly Hills" by Weezer

    Guest host Bo Hicks joins the boys this week to share in his hatred for Weezer's only top ten single "Beverly Hills." Don't worry Weezeheads: there's plenty of Pinkerton talk before the fellas start dunking on this Stinkerton of a song.
    Bo (like many fans of early era Weezer) feels betrayed by this song, Hayden finds an odd comparison for the s****y guitar solo, and Josh finds an opportunity to talk about how much he hates the sound of children singing for the second week in a row.

Love it

Songs they should do episodes about:
Literally anything from Ed Sheeran, Bruno Mars, Ariana Grande, or Justin Bieber
Chicken Fried by Zac Brown Band
no body, no crime by Taylor Swift

Definitely worth a listen

Funny, insightful, and accessible to both the casual and more involved music fan. The hosts obviously go back a long way together, and while this occasionally means the show veers into in-joke territory it mostly means a comfortable, well-meshed vibe.

Funny

Although I’ve been a guest on a few episodes, all of the episodes make me laugh. This is a podcast with a biting sense of humor. It’s the good stuff.
