The Smiths Suck

The Smiths Suck

Everyone likes The Smiths because it’s super impressive that Morrissey, clearly a deaf man, can approximate singing, right? Also, guess what, it ain’t just Morrissey. This entire band is the worst.

Are The Smiths influential?

Sure.

Are any of the bands they influenced good, like, even a little bit?

Absolutely not.

Go back in time, make The Smiths not happen and everything that later instantly gets 10% better. Duran Duran were a better band and it’s not even close. Get ready to get sad about how much The Smiths suck.

 

P.S. This episode featured a small clip of The Smithsfits, which is better than The Smiths and The Misfits combined. Go check out The Smithsfits on Soundcloud!

Steely Dan Sucks

 

Steely Dan Sucks

Listen up, Danfans. You’ve been wrong and you always will be wrong until the moment you admit that liking Steely Dan is the audio equivalent of enjoying the smell of your own farts.

Steely Dan sucks.

Nothing about this is as interesting as you think it is. You might as well track down the studio musicians who make all the Goldman Sachs elevator muzak and pretend like they’re the greatest thing ever because that is literally all this is.

By the way, never let yourself be alone in a room with someone whose favorite band is Steely Dan. Trust us.

The Beastie Boys Suck

 

The Beastie Boys Suck

The Beastie Boys not only suck but are also perhaps the single most annoying gimmick in music history. It is jaw-dropping that this made-for-frat-boys cultural theft happened and that critics somehow fell in love with it.

It’s as if three people were sitting around wondering how stupid any single musical act could possibly be and this is what they came up with. If that’s what happened, wow, they nailed it. It doesn’t get much worse than this.

More like The Bullshit Boys.

Fleetwood Mac Sucks

Fleetwood Mac Sucks

Fleetwood Mac is a trash fire. Nobody even really likes this crap, they just think they remember liking it. Revisit those “classic” Fleetwood Mac albums for lessons in trash songwriting, hilariously bad singing and probably the worst production ever heard in a #1 album.

Is it any wonder a band full of terrible people made terrible music? Lindsey Buckingham apparently never recovered from being named “Lindsey” cuz this beta dude is the definition of fragile masculinity. The perfect creative force for a band full of drug-addled narcissists who can’t stop screwing each other and screwing each other over.

Slayer Sucks

Slayer Sucks

What makes a band the heaviest metal band ever? Unless it’s ridiculous Satanic imagery, muddy production, subpar musicianship, stupid lyrics and releasing the same album over and over for militant fans… Slayer doesn’t have it.

Every music writer who ever voted for Reign in Blood to be on a list of the best metal albums ever made should lose their job effective immediately. Honestly, if they had any self respect, they’d resign. That’s what Slayer is finally doing after years of raking it in as the most overhyped band in metal history, retiring. And to that we say: good. Slayer sucks.
