Ep 152: "Party in the U.S.A." by Miley Cyrus
With Miley's new album just being dropped there's no better time to revisit her first major hit that seems to become wildly popular every time either a terrorist is killed or certain U.S presidents lose their reelection campaign. This week we attempt to find out why this is, so throw your hands up cuz we're playing this song.

Ep 151: The Worst Thanksgiving Songs
This year let's all be thankful that these 3 songs are not perennial Thanksgiving classics. This week Mike leads the charge covering some of the worst Thanksgiving songs ever made, from 'music' about how to properly roast a turkey, to that ONE Nicole Westbrook song, to a culturally-sensitive song all about turkey murder entitled..."Turkey Murder."

Ep 150: "Unknown Number" by Busy Signal
Acclaimed Jamaican Dancehall artist Busy Signal wrote an entire song just to let you know all of the reasons why he will not answer YOUR phone call, and we dissect it all on this week's episode.

Ep 149: Presidential Campaign Songs (1825-2018)
We dive into the long and eclectic history of presidential campaign songs on this week's episode, from getting in rafts with Taft to endorsements by Frank Sinatra to... rap songs about Newt Gingrich. Also; VOTE

Ep 148: "Amputator" by Six Feet Under
Do you like gross Death Metal lyrics grunted by a 52 year pot head who's voice sounds like a loony toons character? We dive into one of the latest singles(!) by former Cannibal Corpse vocalist Chris Barnes and his side-project-turned-main-project Six Feet Under, and along the way Nick leads a read-along of song titles, Mike comes up with a name for the titular amputator, and Steve does not enjoy himself.

Ep 147: "Addams Groove" by MC Hammer
"The Addams Family" film came out in 1991, and what artist was bigger that year than the untouchable MC Hammer himself? We dissect the last top 10 hit (and Razzie award-winning song) of MC Hammer and along the way provide a history of the original comic strip, dive into the old Munsters-vs-Addams feud, and also find out that creator Charles Addams dated THAT Kennedy.

Ep 146: A Night at the (Horror) Movies (Ft. Maniac Cop 2, The Mutilator, and Child's Play)
We dive in to the deepest of deep cuts on this week's spoOoOoky episode all about the themes to some of your favorite B and C level slasher movies. Whether it's creatively titled "Maniac Cop Rap," the jarring juxtaposition of the song "Fall Break," or the demented funhouse of "The Chucky Song," one thing is definitely for certain; none of these musicians went on to do anything afterward.

Ep 145: The Scientology Album They Didn't Want You to Hear (The Joy of Creating)
We swear this title isn't clickbait. We got our hands on one of the RAREST pieces of Scientology music ever recorded, in which a bunch of high ranking musicians in the church all recite L Ron Hubbard propaganda; but to upbeat, adult contemporary background music! From Issac Hayes to Chick Corea, this potential recruitment attempt of an album has long since been buried by history, but we dig it up and dissect it on this week's thetan-clearing episode.

Are You Tellin' Me, Ep 2: The War Between Coke And Pepsi (ft. Nazis and Communists)
Steve leads Mike on another dissection of bad, bizarre and noteworthy history, this time all about the history of all of the jaw-dropping things Coke and Pepsi have done to assert their dominance as the premiere soda brand. Do you know which brand was founded by a confederate soldier? Or which one led to riots that led to death by grenades? Or which one once had the 6TH LARGEST MILITARY STOCKPILE IN THE WORLD???

Ep 143: "The Purple People Eater" by Sheb Wooley
You know the song, but you definitely don't know what it's actually about; but did the artist even? We dive into the history of the hit novelty song "The Purple People Eater" on this week's episode, and along the way Mike provides an extensive history on the life of both Sheb Wooley and the monster itself, including scenes from the JAW-DROPPING 1988 movie based on the song.

Ep 142: "Talkin' Baseball" by Terry Cashman
While this song may hold a spot in hearts of millions of baseball fans everywhere, it's important to know that it's also a terrible song (at least according to Nick). We dissect ALL of the versions of this perennial classic from the 80's, but stay tuned to the very end to hear an original and heartwarming NEW version sung by Steven Trolinger himself! “Talkin’ Bad Songs” Produced by Andy Felicitas https://www.felicitasentertainment.com

Ep 141: The Mysterious Axeman's Jazz Murders (B-Sides)
The history of jazz is filled with as many dead bodies as it is wrong notes, and on this week's episode we go true-crime as we dive into the infamous (and purportedly jazz-loving) axeman's murders that plagued New Orleans in the early 20th century. Along the way we also dissect the actual piece of music that came out of these crimes and marvel at its...surprising jauntiness?

Ep 140: "WAP" by Cardi B feat. Megan Thee Stallion
This week we dive into the new anthem of female empowerment by two women of color that, for some reason, a lot of white people seem to not be thrilled with. We take a nuanced look on the way this song de-stigmatizes female sexuality and how it fills a need for music and entertainment that caters to more than just a single watered-down mass audience, but don't worry there's plenty of immature humor too.

Ep 139: "Flatten Da Curve" by Albany Lou ft. Uncle Murda
What we need in this pandemic isn't grounded reasoning or scientific inquiry, we need a white rapper from Nick's hometown letting us know how all of it is one giant conspiracy. We dive into up-and-coming rapper Albany Lou's latest anthem "Flatten Da Curve," and along the way Mike dives into Albany's sordid past, Nick reminisces about Albany's namesake town, and Steve certainly doesn't get topical.

Ep 138: John Cena's Rap Career
The Doctor of Thuganomics has undergone many changes throughout his extensive career, but it is perhaps his white-guy-rap persona that was the most unfortunate. Steve leads us on a journey through John Cena's music career, from his start as a "ruthlessly aggressive" baby face all the way through the memefication of his theme song.

Ep 137: Jada Pinkett Smith's Nu-Metal Band Wicked Wisdom
Before she was breaking Facebook Live with her husband Will Smith, Jada Pinkett Smith was fronting an honest-to-god Nu-Metal band that she founded herself. Was it just a novelty act, a vanity project, or a legitimate nu-metal act; which in turn would make it something we should all avoid?

Ep 135: "Porn Star Dancing" by My Darkest Days, Ft. Ludacris, Nickelback, and Zakk Wylde
How did Ludacris, Ozzy’s guitarist, and Chad Kroeger all end up in the same place with a bunch of Canadian f#&kboys at the Hard Rock in Vegas surrounded by half-naked gyrating women? We attempt to figure that out as we dissect the hit song “Porn Star Dancing” by the short lived rock band My Darkest Days

Join wise teacher Steve and apt pupil Mike as they go through 3 wild and lesser-known historical tidbits, from presidential assassinations, to the madness that was Moving Day, to the most INSANE Olympics ever held, we hope you enjoy this week's detour through history!

Ep 133: McGruff The Crime Dog's Anti-Drug Pop-Rock Album from the 80's
Anti-drug mascot McGruff the Crime Dog branched out into many forms of media throughout his career, including the incredibly obscure pop rock album for kids "Smart Kids (say no to drugs)." With hit songs all about marijuana being a gateway drug to accusatory songs assuming you use crack and cocaine to whatever the HELL is happening on the last track, this album serves as living proof that the war on drugs was lost before it even began.
