The Smell of Music is a journey, an ambitious attempt to finding the very worst music in our universe. This is the natural result of an online space that is way too devoted to the pursuit of greatness, failing to even remember imperfection. There is music that is good, bad, and unfortunate. We’re looking for the latter. Join us for a worthy endeavor.
