Let’s review: there’s no good art and it’s a red flag for adults to have a favorite band. Naturally, most of you will disagree. That's fine. Just pretend it's a drinking game. An algorithm randomly assigns the band Mark & Tyler destroy in every episode. Start on one everybody knows is trash, like The Beatles. But soon you'll realize culture is a pyramid scheme and your favorite band is just the soundtrack to a fake vintage t-shirt. (Get Ad-Free Episodes Here: https://anchor.fm/yfbspod/subscribe)

    SOUNDGARDENSUCKS

    SOUNDGARDENSUCKS

    This holiday season we thought it would be nice to bring back a truly deep, old-school Q4 discount by taking 100% off the value of Soundgarden, one of the most overrated bands of all time. If the dude with the microphone is just going to scream all the time then shouldn't the music be heavier? How can the fans call this good songwriting when all of the lyrics are idiotic nonsense? Why is the most annoying drummer you know going to punch a hole in their bedroom wall when you send them a link to this?



    All these questions and more will be answered in today's episode of the podcast: Soundgarden Sucks!



    (BTW we are running an actual sale this weekend, too. Promo code CREED4EVER gets you 30% off podcast merch until Tuesday at shop.yfbspod.com)

    Cream Sucks

    Cream Sucks

    Please consider this episode of the podcast your one-time-only, always-true, get-it-tattooed-somewhere-on-your-body-and-never-worry-about-new-facts-coming-to-light reminder: you do not under any circumstances need to hand it to the band Cream. Forget every stupid Boomer joke you've ever heard that implies Eric Clapton was once a good guitarist or was once in a good band. It's always been a myth. Cream was unquestionably the most over-rated band of the 1960s and anyone who wants to argue about that has no good opinions on music.

    The 1975 Sucks

    The 1975 Sucks

    If you’ve heard of The 1975 but aren’t really sure where, they’re the British one with the lead singer who’s been giving everyone a different reason to hate him every week or so for the past few years. Meanwhile Mark and Tyler hate the whole band because they’ve never released a good song, which used to be the barrier of entry on anyone caring enough to pay attention to the antics of a band's lead singer. This ain’t Oasis, people! It’s a pretty simple rule: if you wouldn’t listen to the guy sing, don’t listen to him talk. What you should be listening to instead is this brand new episode of the podcast about how much The 1975 sucks!

    Bob Seger Sucks

    Bob Seger Sucks

    Please, for the love of all that is decent in the world, leave those old records on the shelf, Bob! Even if the music you grew up on was once half as cool as you seem to think - which it wasn't - and even if you yourself were once half as cool as you seem to think - which you definitely weren't - what about any of that would lead you to believe the world needs you to write approximately 80 songs on that topic and only that topic?! Nobody cares that you used to get your dick wet, dude. You've got to stop singing about it. It was already weird about 40 years ago and at this point it's become a fairly serious problem, for you, for us, for everyone still living under the delusion that these songs were ever awesome... Press play on this episode to let Mark and Tyler free you from the spell of Mr. Seger's past!

    The Weeknd Sucks

    The Weeknd Sucks

    You know, it really was a great question... What if there was a new R&B singer pop star who represented modern attitudes toward sexual inhibition and general debauchery? Too bad we still don't have an answer because at this point it's pretty extremely clear The Weeknd is and has always been a giant dork. Sure, back in the early days, nobody knew much about him and could only imagine how insane the drugs and parties and sex must be if that's all he ever wanted to sing about. But he just couldn't keep his true self hidden in the shadows! Ready for Mark and Tyler to take you on a guided tour of how one man defied all the odds to become a global phenomenon, then defied common sense by ruining it all for no good reason?

Brilliant, Scathing, Hilarious

This podcast does a fantastic job of both rightfully (and at times hyperbolically) barbecuing some of music’s most sacred cows, while also offering a pretty incisive satire of music criticism in general. I think the satire in this show is missed by a lot of the people who are giving negative reviews, that really only becomes apparent after hearing several episodes when they start purposefully contradicting themselves about what the good bands of a specific era are. (Ex. In the Slayer episode, they tell everyone to listen to Metallica, but in the Metallica episode, they tell everyone to listen to Slayer.) Even though Tyler and Mark present themselves as arrogant know-it-alls, ironically, I would say that the main lesson to take away from this show is that nobody should be on their high horse about their music tastes. No artist is beyond criticism. If your favorite band is Aerosmith, you have no business talking down to someone whose favorite band is Limp Bizkit. If you are secure in your music tastes and can take what they say with a grain of salt, there’s a lot of humor and insight to be found in this show. Some of my favorite episodes have been about bands that I absolutely love.

Irritated Screenplay Writer ,

Nice concept but they don’t do anything with it

The hosts aren’t particularly insightful and apparently think just saying the most provocative, contrarian things they can think of will be entertaining. The problem is, they apparently can’t think up much. Very repetitive and dull.

LilGaryMac ,

Light listening for music amateurs

Pretty entertaining to listen to these guys lay into a bunch of popular artists! It becomes pretty obvious pretty quick that this isn't like industry professionals discussing bands and the music; it's clear they don't do a big "deep dive" on research and true intellect and thought for each episode. It's certainly not a podcast for those looking for real discourse and discussion regarding the actually music and everything behind it. And sometimes they seem to be like really offended by the people they are discussing, which is entertaining in itself! I've been forwarding to friends that I think it will elicit a reaction for. Recommended strictly for fun!
