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

    "Cowboy" by Kid Rock

    "Cowboy" by Kid Rock

    Season 3 of This Song Sucks ends on a bittersweet note. The release day of this episode is the one-year anniversary of the passing of our friend Bryce Montgomery. Luckily for you, dear listener, Josh, Hayden, and Gabe Hostetler joined Bryce last year to record this sometimes uncomfortably deep dive into Kid Rock's "Cowboy."
    The episode is chaotic at times, but the hallmarks of close friendship are apparent: minor insults are hurled, self-deprecating jokes are cracked, and full body laughs take up literal minutes of run time in this super-sized episode. We hope that anyone who listens is reminded to cherish the time they have with their loved ones. We also recommend that you make that time as silly and unserious as possible.

    "ME!" by Taylor Swift

    "ME!" by Taylor Swift

    Josh, Hayden, and guest host Sarah Ferguson may have made an idiotic decision with this week's episode. That's right folks, we've decided to risk our own safety by dumping on Taylor Swift's truly irredeemable hit, "ME!" You may never hear from us again after this, so we hope you remember us fondly if the Swifty horde (or her dad Kingsley) takes us out.
    Sarah is truly baffled that Swift keeps winning awards for her singing, Josh does his best Brendon Urie and Bon Iver impressions, and Hayden begins assembling his dream cast for the inevitable Swift biopic.

    "God Bless the USA" by Lee Greenwood

    "God Bless the USA" by Lee Greenwood

    Perennial favorite Blaine Duncan and new guest Kevin Halbrook join Josh to help dissect Lee Greenwood and his god-awful hit "God Bless the USA." Misplaced national pride, faux working-class imagery, and a healthy dollop of jingoism: what more could you ask for in the favorite song of the Republican National Convention.
    Josh can't get over the s****y production quality, Blaine distinctly remembers hating the song as a young child, and Kevin explains why it's the perfect song for right-wing crazies everywhere.

    "Sunglasses at Night" by Corey Hart

    "Sunglasses at Night" by Corey Hart

    Guest host Jay Burgess brings in quite a doozy this episode with "Sunglasses at Night" by Corey Hart. That's right folks: we're taking a trip to the '80s! Put on your Member's Only jacket, get yourself a toot of the devil's dandruff, and listen to the fellas take down this garbage song.
    Jay stands flabbergasted at the incomprehensible lyrics, Josh points out some undeniable similarities to other popular songs of the day, and Hayden goes on the hunt for some bags of milk.

    "Unwell" by Matchbox Twenty

    "Unwell" by Matchbox Twenty

    Natalie Morrow is back and this time she's bringing the hate for Matchbox Twenty's "Unwell." Even though she's in total agreement with Hayden and Josh on how much this song sucks, she still finds a way to put them in their place.
    Natalie focuses her ire at the terribly milquetoast chorus, Josh consider the banjo a total non-sequitur, and Hayden finds a way to be annoyed by Josh even while unconscious.

    "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.
