The Grateful Dead Sucks

The Grateful Dead Sucks

It’s possible The Grateful Dead smelled even worse than they sounded, which is really saying something. Even their fans agree, this band sucks. But let’s be honest, this episode is just as much about trashing hippies as it is about trashing The Grateful Dead. And one of the worst things about hippies is that they think it’s acceptable to listen to The Grateful Dead. It’s not.

The only way anyone tolerated the sound was by being annihilated on drugs. Well, then there’s Ann Coulter…

KISS Sucks

KISS sucks

All these songs sound like a 13 year old boy talking about what he thinks sex would be like and half the merch is marketed at 10 year olds. Who let this happen? Also, is KISS even a band? Because none of them can write, sing or play an instrument.

Oh, yeah, we know your parents let you listen to this when you were a kid. But what we’re saying is they did maybe-irreparable damage to you in doing so and it’s possible that every failed relationship in your life could be this band’s fault. Also, no, this is not genius marketing but good try at skirting the main issue, which is that KISS sucks!

Interpol Sucks

Interpol Sucks

 

Calling Interpol a Joy Division ripoff is so much more than they deserve. Rocking gun holsters onstage seems a lot less cool these days, huh? Yeah, so does this entire band because Interpol sucks!

Tool Sucks

Tool Sucks

 

Tool is the official soundtrack of thinking you’re smarter than everyone else. Caveat lector, edgelords. We’re coming straight for the chinks in your armor.

In this episode, Mark and Tyler treat a dissection of Tool with all the respect the band deserves, which is none. The formula to create this product is laughably easy. There’s a reason Tool fans have a reputation as some of the worst people in America – they are.

Listen, realizing you’re an idiot is never easy but try not to overreact, okay?

Radiohead Sucks

Radiohead Sucks

Alright, hands off of each other. The circle jerk is over.

Radiohead’s sound went from an unoriginal whine to a mess of incompetent IDM. Then, they got to work making it harder for young artists to get a leg up in the business.

Mark thinks Limp Bizkit is for sure a better band than Radiohead and he’s probably right about that. Tyler thinks Radiohead ruined music criticism forever. Also, it’s worth listening to the music business dork discussion on In Rainbows’ release strategy to get to the part after that about how this band was rejected by James Bond himself.

This episode was recorded several months ago but the guys had time to come back and add more thoughts on Thom and company ripping off The Hollies, now that they want to come after Lana Del Rey for doing the same thing.

Radiohead sucks.
