Social Distortion Sucks

Social Distortion Sucks

Are we sure Mike Ness didn’t see Grease in 1978 and decide to start a band? Because, uh, it would make a lot of sense if that was exactly how Social Distortion happened. What doesn’t make any sense is why people liked it then, still like it now and, in fact, incorporate this glorified cover band into their entire personality.

Take Fonzie, give him an arsenal of entry-level country music covers and a capo, get Bruce Springsteen to make a trip out to California and explain authenticity to Mike Ness – boom! You just made yourself some Social D, baby!

This episode is not brought to you by House of Blues.

The Who Suck

The Who Suck

A lot of people think The Who is a great, legendary band. They point to the virtuoso musicianship, great songwriting, genius concept albums and, of course, that rock opera. This would all be well and good, except for the fact that this band sucks.

We’ve all been lied to about The Who. Nobody here was anywhere near the best there ever was at anything they did. (Nor were they the second or even third best, as is often the follow-up argument.) In this episode, Mark and Tyler turn over every stone to try and discover what anyone ever saw or heard in this band… and, well, it gets ugly…

Sublime Sucks

Sublime Sucks

Life IS too short so listen to this and learn exactly why you should never waste another second of your existence hearing Sublime.

Everyone with a brain in their head already knows that Sublime sucks, right? The answer is yes. Maybe you think you’ve got a good idea of how much this band sucks. Trust us, it’s worse. There is so much awful information waiting for you in this episode. Honestly, this may be a Top Ten Worst Band of All Time, people. And if you don’t believe that, hey, press play and let us know how you feel after listening.

Bon Jovi Sucks

Bon Jovi Sucks

Bon Jovi sucks so much Mark and Tyler can’t even get worked up over it. Listen as your favorite podcast hosts casually dismantle this band’s career until, eventually, with no worthy adversary to team up against, Mark and Tyler turn on each other…

As we’ve seen before, Bon Jovi isn’t even a band. It’s John Bongiovi’s personal ego trip, kid-tested and mother-approved. Sometimes a pocketful of clich├ęs is all it takes to reach the *cough*laughing-stock*cough* Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, kids!

There isn’t going to be an episode of the podcast next week because Tyler and Mark are mad at each other over this one.

Nirvana Sucks

 

Nirvana Sucks

Voted one of the Five Worst Bands of the ’90s by Rolling Stone readers in 2013, Nirvana made what BBC listeners in 2005 considered to be the most overrated album ever, Nevermind. So, it’s not even up to us, the results are in and Nirvana sucks!

You know we have problems with Kurt Cobain being one of the most heralded “songwriters” of the slacker generation. (He’s not even a songwriter, let alone a good one.) You know we have problems with Nirvana biting their sound from better bands. You know we have problems with this whole 27 Club suicide death cult self-selected martyr thing.

But Nirvana was merely a symptom of a much larger problem: grunge. A truly awful cacophony – and dangerous, too! It’s quite possible that grunge killed more people than gangster rap. Anyway, you’re already pissed off about us making this episode, so you may as well listen to it now.
