One of the most intense flu seasons in recent memory is finally winding down. So this week we put away the Gatorade and anti-inflammatories to listen to some songs about sickness. Get down with it.
This week we're joined by one of the most delightful personalities in the comedy world: writer, musical aficionado, and host of Maximum Fun's Go Fact Yourself live show and podcast, J. Keith van Straaten. Oh and also friend of the show Jose Escobar. Together we feast upon Armenian-inspired rotisserie chickens, discuss the ethics of nicknaming a friend Adolf Hitler, and somehow get around to listening to folk singers performing covers of mainstream pop songs.
It has been said that the music you listened to in your early 20s is the music you will listen to for the rest of your life. This week, your intrepid and not-at-all stubborn hosts put ourselves to the test by introducing one another to some of our more obscure listening choices. It doesn't go as smoothly as planned. This episode is dedicated to the magazine Tiger Beat, which is better than the trash musical group Tiger Army.
It feels like 2017 has been over for a minute already, but we never got a chance to say goodbye. Join your favorite Three Sons of podcasting for a look back, a look ahead, and a "don't lookit me Little Puppet."
This week we continue our conversation about the song lyrics that inspire our hearts with our friend, brother and social justice activist Aaron Alvarez. As we close out the final episode recorded in 2017, we want to thank him for being a friend, his heart is true, he's a pal and a confidant.
We're joined by artist, podcaster and social justice activist Aaron A. Alvarez of The Obscure Gentlemen and Plain Zero to share our favorite individual song lyrics. Yama is out this week to eat some barbecue. Have a holly jolly one, fam!
Have you ever heard a song and thought it was by one artist, only to find out years later it was someone else? This week's episode is for you. Join our three intrepid hosts on a journey of mistaken identity and coming to grips with the fact that The Association's "Never My Love" was never a Beach Boys song.
By the time you listen to this week's episode, it's likely that yet another batch of powerful dudes have been exposed as predatory trash. So we're dedicating this week to discussing a topic we explored in the early days of our podcast: songs with creepy, misogynistic lyrics, unintentional or otherwise.
Last month we lost one of the greatest songwriters and musicians of our time, and also one of maybe 7 men in popular culture who wasn't an absolute monster. We had this conversation weeks ago, tbh fam, but it was more important that we release some timely episodes about Halloween candy than honor a one-of-a-kind voice the likes of which we will never hear again. Rest in peace, Heartbreaker. Additionally, this week's beautiful episode artwork comes from the irreplaceable Aaron Alvarez of The Obscure Gentlemen.

Trick or treat, fam! We may never know for sure if real monsters are real. But we do know for a fact that songs about monsters exist. Because we listened to a whole bunch of them. And we're sharing some of our favorites with you, our fam. This episode is the first of a two-part Halloween 2017 SPOOK-TACULAR, stay tuned for what's sure to be next.
Every tune has a name, but only some tunes are named after the first names of people. And those are the tunes in question in today's episode, which is dedicated to Dolly Parton.
Grrrr. RAAWWWR. Meow. No need for alarm, fam, because those weren't real animals! Just your hosts discussing songs about animals. Tune in to your wild side, and this conversation.
This week, "Fam" is short for "FAMOUS COMEDIAN PAT FRANCIS," fam! The gregarious and jovial host of hit music podcast Rock Solid invited us into his studio to break a bunch of stuff and talk about meta songs. Thanks again to Pat and a special shout out to young Remy holding it down in the background with Paw Patrol on the iPad.
After literally 113 episodes worth of tasty craveable content, we finally get around to addressing one of the topics that inspired this little podcast to begin with: misheard lyrics. Join our three gents as we share some of the songs we've heard wrong all our lives and can't hear right anymore, then join us on Facebook or Twitter to share your own.
Questions, fam. What are they all about? That was an example of a question. This week we answer some queries from fams and discuss our favorite songs that ask a question in the title.
This week we're joined by comedian, podcaster, writer, producer, and music listening guy Murray Valeriano! You might know him from his podcast storytelling on Rock Solid and Road Stories. You might know him from...other stuff. Anyway, we get together, eat leftover pizza and fresh baked cookies and talk about Murray's background and early engagement with music. After maybe 40 minutes we discuss the actual topic at hand, artists leaving their groups of origin and going solo.
We've been having a lot of fun on our music podcast talking about songs and the meanings we give them. But there's something that's no joke and that's depression. This week, Yama returns from his days on the BBQ circuit to talk about songs that either tackle the subject of depression or evoke the state of mind. This episode is dedicated to all those who struggle with the noonday demon.
We're joined this week by two experts on the male anatomy to discuss groupies' reviews of rock stars' diocks. Yama will be back next week to put a stop to this madness.
This week we're joined by the other half of Plain Zero: Cholo Nick and Travels F. Beast (real names), to share some of our favorite soundtrack songs. Meat us halfway.
