How shocked would you be if anyone in this band was able to explain to explain alternating or direct currents? That’s right, folks. AC/DC is the soundtrack of being a complete dumbass. If chimpanzees could make rock music, it would be smarter than AC/DC. Actually, wait… Has anyone ever tried to teach an ape to play drums? An orangutan could for sure do Phil Rudd’s job. Okay, we’re gonna look into this just as soon as the episode is over.
A lot of people have asked us why Phish wasn’t the very first episode of this podcast. Well, do you really need us to tell you that Phish is one of the worst bands on the planet? No, you don’t. What you need is for us to tell you why Phish is one of the worst bands on the planet, so that’s exactly and comprehensively what we’re going to do. Find somewhere a little more comfortable than the ground to sit down. We’re gonna be here for a while.
You’re not alone and you’re not crazy. All anyone has to do is listen to any 5 Black Flag songs to confirm this has always been a terrible band. Everybody’s just afraid to say it.
Maybe since you can’t leave your house without seeing that logo, everyone assumes a ton of people must be listening to the band? Well, they’re not. Nobody likes this music. (Except for Grateful Dead fans but you can’t trust them.)
Who is worse? Black Flag or The Rolling Stones?
Is Ryan Adams’ music great? Or was he the guy who paved the way for Ed Sheeran? If only there were two professional music listeners to lay out the answers! Oh, wait, that’s us. This is the first episode we almost titled “Ryan Adams Sucked,” past tense, because we’re about to prosecute this dude’s entire career into oblivion.
Not sure how you decide in a battle of Oasis vs Ryan Adams but it’s worth a discussion.
