On The Throwback Podcast, lifelong friends revisit important albums from their past and go through them--track by track-- with fresh ears. From the classics to the cringeworthy, every week is a throwback.

Dearly beloved, we have gathered here today to get through this thing called life. With 25 million copies sold, Purple Rain is one of the best selling albums EVER.

If you stepped inside The Darkroom on Ludlow in 2005 there was a 97% chance you'd hear a song off Antics. And a a 98% chance you'd bump into Carlos D. For that reason, the time has finally come for Bob and Dan to Take You on a Cruise with Interpol. Over a year ago New York's drabbest boys in black won a Patreon poll, but it's taken until now for th…
 
Well... you can only reside in the Nü Garage for so long before you cover some nü metal, right? Limp Bizkit's Significant Other sold 16 MILLION copies to 16 MILLION people with questionable taste, and now it's time for Dan and Bob to honor their Patreonies' wishes and cover the über successful album. Maybe it won't be as bad they suspect... right? …

And what better way to celebrate their return from a long, unplanned hiatus than with one of the BEST ALBUMS EVER TACKLED ON THE POD!

What if Dan Hanzus produced Oasis' third album? What if he was able to convince Liam & Noel to include their best unreleased tracks & b-sides that were unbelievably strewn aside in the 90's? What would Be Here Now look like and sound like with a completely re-imagined tracklist? Would Dan have been able to save Oasis from Oasis? Let's find out.…
 
You can't make a music podcast exclusively for people born in exactly 1980 without covering Nirvana's major label discography in its entirety. This week, the guys in the garage complete the trilogy by listening to the Steve Albini produced In Utero- the final studio album for Kur(d)t, Krist, & Dave. It's a cry for help, a F*ck Off to fans, and a fa…
 
New president. New Radicals. On the day Joe Biden assumed the highest office in the land, Bob and Dan were also celebrating the renewed relevance of a late-90s masterpiece created by a man who doesn’t even want you to remember his name.

The schoolgirl outfit! Those pigtails! That song! Those hooks! Britney Jean Spears took off like a rocket and changed the pop landscape when she dropped her debut LP ...Baby One More Time on January 12, 1999.

2020 may have been an unmitigated disaster, but... actually, no, never mind, there is no 'but'. 2020 sucked. That said, the soundtrack to 2020 was pretty great! In this supersized double episode, Dan and Bob look back at the year that was, and pick their 15 favorite songs. Which one will end up on the vaunted Throwback Podcast Playlist? That's for …
 
Back in the mid-90's there was a lot of hype around a "second British invasion" -- but outside of Oasis, Blur, and Radiohead, and a few decently sized blips on the Modern Rock radar, it never really materialized in the States. So while the folks in the U.K. were losing their minds over Pulp, Elastica, Supergrass, the Manic Street Preachers, James, …
 
Aruba, Jamaica, ooh, we want to take you back to November 1988 (we'll get there fast but then we'll take it slow, I promise). Dan and Bob were just a couple of 2nd grade Karate Kid II fans back then, but that didn't stop them from doing the Locomotion and getting all up in their feels like the rest of America. If you love Yacht Rock but wrestle wit…
 
It's Dealer's Choice Week on The Throwback Pod. This week, your daring dealer Dan goes back to 2007 to push play on Because Of The Times, the third offering from a gang of southern Strokes on the verge of becoming HUGE. This foreplay to Fiery Sex didn't take off in the U.S. but it definitely has a couple of big Fans in the garage. Sit back and get …
 
IT'S BEEN building up to this: Barenaked Ladies week on the Throwback Pod. Following a Gretzky-like run on Canadian radio in the mid-90's, the melodic nerd rockers crossed the border and broke through big time with 1998's Stunt. From "One Week" to "It's All Been Done" to a Sleepy Sex Mix masterpiece, the boys dig into this Juno Award winning mega-s…
 
In 1987 INXS ruled the world. Led by a Mount Babemore frontman and a trio of brothers who, at the time, had all of their fingers, Australia's favorite sons dominated the late 80's with a cavalcade of catchy singles off their album Kick. So many hit singles. So much amazing sax. So many conversations about Michael Hutchence's hotness. And, for the f…
 
Twenty-five years ago this summer, the ponytailed drummer from Nirvana bet on himself and released a solo album under the moniker "Foo Fighters". I think that gamble paid off. Let's go back to 1995, when a secretly funny and charismatic dude made the jump from the one of the most important rock bands of the 20th century to one of the biggest rawk b…
 
Look at the stars, look how they shine for you... then accept the fact that it's Coldplay week on the Throwback Pod.

Did Chuck Klosterman get it right when he said "Coldplay is absolutely the shittiest fucking band I've ever heard in my entire fucking life" or…
 
Fighting with Jay-Z? Pissing off Papa Roach?? Corrupting Lifehouse??? Before he was a sports broadcasting titan, Matt 'Money' Smith lived a whole other life in the music industry.

Here's a little ditty about Bob and Dan, two American kids doing the best they can. This week, they're going alllllll the way back to 1982 to check out a murder's row of Billboard Top 10 singles.

In 2004, an incompetent President mishandled a life-or-death situation and drew the ire of millions of angry citizens who hated how much he was hurting our country.

I want to say a little something that's long overdue: It’s Beastie Boys week on the Throwback Pod. The guys travel back to 1994 to revisit Ill Communication, the album that returned the NYC hip hop legends to superstar status. The guys also discuss Dan’s enhanced efforts on the promotional front and Bob shares a playlist to take you *out* of the mo…
 
Twenty-four years ago Bob and Dan were high school sophomores, bands like Oasis, Soundgarden, and Goldfinger were climbing the charts, and human beings were group-hugging and triple-kissing like there was no tomorrow. Turns out, that was as good as it gets. Let's go back in time to our 1950's -- the 1990's -- and check out the Top 10 Modern Rock tr…
 
The Strokes are back! Their new album, The New Abnormal, is not just the only good thing to happen in 2020, but it's also one-way-triggered Bob and Dan into revisiting Julian & The Boys' old catalog. Which brings us to First Impressions Of Earth, their divisive 2006 LP that either signaled an exciting new direction for the lo-fi NY rockers, or the …
 
The album: Pieces Of You. The artist: Jewel. The audio: not great, but considering this was our first 2-Garage remote podcast, c'mon, cut us some slack! This week, the guys are drinking alone, together, and listening to the "Courtney & Wyatt's Choice" Patreon-poll winning Pieces Of You from beginning to end for the first time ever. Will the convers…
 
Pump Up The Jam? Why yes, we will. This week we're transforming the rented garage into a rented Middle School Auditorium circa 1992. Our moms have bought us some rad rayon shirts and we're totally psyched to do the running man to the biggest pop/Eurodance hits from the early 90's. From C&C Music Factory to Technotronic to Ace Of Base to Haddaway, l…
 
Episode 100! Here we are! Thanks to all the Patreonies and people out there for making this happen! To celebrate, Dan and Bob are going to (a) burn down the garage, and (b) push play on the album that helped transform these two average 8th graders (slash-below-average-soccer-players) into award-winning Bosom Buddies. [Adam Duritz 'Rain King' Howl]:…
 
Episode 99 returns the guys to the epicenter of the Garage Rock Revival of 2001. The White Stripes. White Blood Cells. Anti-Venom to The Durst Virus.

I can tell that we are gonna be friends.…

It's 2020, Bob is 40, and we're feeling supersonic -- let's kick off the decade with some cigarettes and alcohol. Definitely Maybe is a definitive LP of the 90's and a Britpop classic. It's also Bob's favorite Oasis album, so devoting an episode to it is the least we can do for the old man. Liam and Noel: welcome to the 3-timers club.…
 
In this very special double-episode of the Throwback Podcast, Bob and Dan say goodbye to the 2010's the only way they know how: by picking 20 of their favorite songs from the decade and discussing the most random sh*t imaginable while a terrible Mike Myers movie plays in the background. Let's take a look back at the '10s with an episode nearly as l…
