Smashing Pumpkins Suck

Smashing Pumpkins Suck

First of all, this isn’t a band. It’s Billy Corgan going into a studio and recording 100 guitar tracks per song, then whispering half his vocals before eating a bunch of broken glass and recording the other half. You’re not Kevin Shields, man. Chill.

Next, this episode contains a shocking revelation about the music of Smashing Pumpkins. It’s honestly so important that it could end up in the viral news cycle. But until Buzzfeed rips off our insights, you’ll just have to listen to the episode to hear it.

The Smashing Pumpkins suck.

The Doors Suck

The Doors Suck

The Doors are the musical equivalent of a 20-year-old who’s taken five guitar lessons and one philosophy class. That’s gonna seem pretty far ahead of where you are when you’re 15. You’re not 15. Stop listening to this band.

This is also a great example of why automatically respecting your elders is such an inherently stupid concept. How are we supposed to respect the generation that let this band become one of the most overhyped bands to ever exist?

The Doors suck.

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 happened 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.

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.
