Less Rock, More Talk

I figured why not start my own thread for my podcast rather than clutter up the shitty classic rock thread?

On Episode 2, we look back at the Mainstream Rock Charts on September 28th, 1991, the week that Nirvana's Nevermind was released. Me and my co-host Nic are joined by guest, writer/comedian/traveler Ali Simpson!

This week, me and my friends count down a real humdinger of a Rock chart from April 14th, 1984. '84 is considered one of the best years in pop music history and it's easy to see why.

This week, me and my co-host Nic discuss the Mainstream Rock Charts on the Week of October 12th, 1985. We discuss the stars of Live Aid, the Miami Vice soundtrack, and Blender's Worst Songs of All Time list from the early '00s.

Those Blender lists are triggering as fuck for me.

One of these days, we're going to do an episode on that. We discuss the list briefly and there's a bunch of songs on it that are unironically good. GD '00s hipsters. >:(

I never legit get mad at those lists, but Blender somehow. Smug, shitty writing and no doubt just to troll people like me who have obsessive lists and whatnot.

You'll need to get to the Spin article where it has Skrillex as one of the 100 best guitar players ever.

On this week's episode, me and Nic are joined by my friend and youth influencer Micaela. For the first time, we count down a chart from the '00s. We take a look back at the Alternative Rock charts from the week the Boston Red Sox won their first World Series in 2004.

Hope you guys like butt rock (or U2's "Vertigo")!
