The concept is simple: three musician pals get together and talk about the music that they hate.

    "Macarena" and Other Dance Songs

    "Macarena" and Other Dance Songs

    Lindsay Palinsky joins Hayden and Josh to lend her dance expertise for the trio's takedown of everyone's least favorite group dance songs. What do The Chicken Dance, Cotton Eye Joe, The Macarena, and The Cha Cha Slide have in common? They all suck, of course! 
    Josh is on his usual BS about "musical" issues, Lindsay has flashbacks to her bat mitzvah, and Hayden finds a way to talk about strudels again.

    "Come Original" by 311

    "Come Original" by 311

    Hayden and Josh slip the ol' Birkenstocks back on for this episode as they are joined by Elizabeth Hafner to discuss "Come Original" by 311. All three hosts apologize to their middle school selves, but it's hard not to dunk on a band whose music and lyrics are as stale as their bong water.
    Josh thinks the song is a haphazardly slapped-together collection of unfinished ideas, Hayden agrees that the song sucks but admits to kind of liking it, and Elizabeth can't help but dish out zinger after zinger aimed at what we assume is the saddest fan base in existence.

    "Fancy Like" by Walker Hayes

    "Fancy Like" by Walker Hayes

    Folks, we may have jumped the shark with this one. Can we even be considered a music podcast anymore with the amount of restaurant talk in this episode? Probably not, but I don't think you can blame us considering today's subject: "Fancy Like" by Walker Hayes, or, as it's known throughout most of the world, "That Stupid Applebee's Song."
    Blaine Duncan returns and does not disappoint with his pointed barbs aimed straight at this song's idiotic lyrics, Josh finds a way to make both a racial critique AND a capitalist critique (what else is new), and Hayden ends up with a hankerin' for some tasty apps from one of America's most beloved restaurant chains.
    Thanks to Sarah Ferguson for the episode art. At this point, she may be the only thing keeping our social media accounts afloat. Check her out on Instagram @pedgiree_chum.

    "Old Time Rock & Roll" by Bob Seger

    "Old Time Rock & Roll" by Bob Seger

    Don't take us to a disco! We don't wanna hear any of that tango nonsense either because this week we're taking on Bob Seger's "Old Time Rock & Roll." Hannah Hayes joins us again to discuss how such a great artist could come up with this bland, loud, and boring turd of a song. More importantly, Hayden and Hannah come up with an idea for a podcast discussing the luxurious locks of our favorite musical artists, which is a probably a better idea for a podcast than this one. Whoops!

    Thanks again to Sarah Ferguson for the episode art. She sure is pretty damn good at this kind of stuff, so make sure you check her out on the 'Gram @pedgiree_chum.

    "Wonderful Tonight" by Eric Clapton

    "Wonderful Tonight" by Eric Clapton

    We're finally back! It only took us a year since the last episode, but This Song Sucks Season 3 starts with a bang. Hayden, Adam, and Josh finally take on one of their personal shibboleths: Eric Clapton and his absolute trashcan of a song Wonderful Tonight. Is it creepy? You bet. Does it suck? Hell yes.

    Thanks to Sarah Ferguson for the episode art. Make sure to check her work out on Instagram @pedgiree_chum.

    Episode 0211: Bonus - These Songs Slap Vol. 2

    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.

Behind the Music with a Comedic Twist

Absolutely love this podcast. Found it through an old friend who was a guest on an episode and now I am hooked. The only critique I have is I wish there were more episodes. The latest 311 episode is pure gold. Keep up the good work guys!

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.
