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.
Ah, the open road. Hell, even the closed road. Any road. This week we're talking about songs you listen to on the road or songs about roads. But definitely not songs about being on a boat or in a plane. Or on a plane. Or in a boat. Anyway. Thanks again to our interim co-hosts Aaron and Shred from Plain Zero, who are filling in while Yama enjoys the barbecue of all 50 states.
With Yama on vacation touring the country's best BBQ spots, it feels a little bit like our world is ending here at 12FAP studios. So we invited two comfy friends to talk about something soothing: songs for the end of the world, or songs that sound like the Apocalypse itself. Many thanks to the gang from Plain Zero podcast for guesting, and we look forward to the upcoming merger between our shows!
Out of all the instruments of music, the saxophone has been called the sexiest by men with open shirts and abundant chest hair. This week we crack open a few bottles of grapefruit shandy (that's mostly beer with a dash of grapefruit juice, not 50/50 beer and grapefruit regardless of what you hear) and listen to some of the hottest slices of saxified pop music from the 80s to today.

MUSIC. Will we ever know what it's going on about? This week, we're joined by friend of the show Tim to discuss some of the best, worst and weirdest side projects of all time. Save this podcast under a fake name on your phone, fam.

This week on the podcast, we answer a question from one of 12 For A Penny's most vocal critics: "Can you guys do an episode about epic songs, fam?" We love proving the haters wrong, so we said sure.
If you forgot Mother's Day, send your mom this episode in lieu of an apology and flowers. In an instant you will be forgiven and no longer a disappointment in her eyes, because this week we're sharing songs our parents introduced us to. We're also practicing the English language's newest tongue twister: "Canadian collabo of Creep Catching crews."

MUSIC: What's it all about, fam? This week, it's about wrestling entrance music. We're joined by Twitter's own Del Freaky of the podcast and live chat thingy Beyond The 140 to answer the question, "If you did wrastlin' to what songs would you come out to wrastle?" We also talk about Twitter and other stuff.
