ppcocaine vs Trippie Redd

ppcocaine vs Trippie Redd

February 19, 2021

This week the guys decide to listen to some newer rap music and holy shit was that a bad decision. Things get uncomfortable for Red as he thinks Branden crosses a line bringing a song about a certain kink performed by a woman trying to sound like a child. Meanwhile, Reds song features the worst vocals and the lamest attempt at covering up said vocals with a shit ton of effects. Honestly I don't think a single word is actually said in it. But does it have what it takes to take home the title this week? 

ppcocaine: DDLG 

vs

Trippie Redd: Back Back Back

Listener Suggestions: Die Antwoord vs Zheani

Listener Suggestions: Die Antwoord vs Zheani

February 11, 2021

It's the first in a series of listener suggested episodes! We've gathered a decent collection of songs you the listener have sent us to review and it's time we make them compete against each other. Both of these songs have been recommended to us through our SSOTW voicemail line            (910) 370-1604 and holy shit are they ROUGH!

Thanks to an unknown listener and a suggestion from Teresa we go down a rabbit hole of South African vs Australian rap to see what is more annoying; a rap duo consisting of a fast talking mush mouth and a hentai voice actress, or a whiny nasally child sounding woman that is having a tantrum to a drum beat. Oh and one is accusing the other of some shit... so there's that.

Styx vs Journey

Styx vs Journey

February 5, 2021

What's more irritating, a song with next to no musical talent and horrible lyrics that try to be too artsy? Or a song with way too much instrumentation, painfully whiney vocals and minutes of audio that doesn't need to be there? This week Crippled Jesus joins the show to dive into two of the worst classic rock hit songs to exist to see who is worse between:

Styx: Come Sail Away

vs

Journey: Don't Stop Believing

Rihanna vs Beyonce

Rihanna vs Beyonce

January 29, 2021

Rihanna: Disturbia

vs

Beyonce: Diva

White Chapel vs Metallica

January 22, 2021

This week we're joined by Pepper from the Rushmore podcast to discuss what happens when metal bands sell out and create "soft metal". Snare drums are thrown at you and whiny vocals will crawl through your ears as you try to determine what is worse, a depressing acoustic ballad, or what happens when your therapist becomes the front man for your band. Who brought the shittier song this week between:

White Chapel: Hickory Creek

vs

Metallica: St. Anger

Shitty Movie Theme Songs

January 15, 2021

This week Branden is joined by Doug from Good Times Great Movies podcast to discuss a category of music that hasn't been talked about on the show yet, songs written for movies. We span decades of movies to see what is actually worse, a duet between a castrato and a human didgeridoo, or a somewhat religious rock song written for a superhero possibly. You get to decide between:

Chad Kroger feat. Josey Scott: Hero (Theme for Spiderman 2002)

vs

Sybil and Guy: Keoma (Theme for Keoma 1976)

Danzig vs Suicide Silence

Danzig vs Suicide Silence

January 8, 2021

This week Red comes back on the show to dive into some of the worst rock cover songs that 2020 has to offer. Branden discovers that one of the shows former contestants found a way to turn the song that competed even worse. Even Les Claypool gets thrown into the mix to help find out what is more upsetting; a note for note cover featuring someone talented that barely shows up, or what happens when you take an already slow song, make it even slower and sound like its being sung from a coffin. You get to decide whats worse between:

Glenn Danzig: Always On My Mind

vs

Suicide Silence: Man In The Box

We're back with a new year and a new batch of shitty music! And what better way to kick off the new year then by talking about rock songs that are over 20 years old. Jodie B from Po Boys joins the show to find out which is more upsetting, a bizarrely popular song with no real rhythm or musical skill, or a rap rock supergroup made entirely of children. You get to decide between:

Stone Temple Pilots: Vasoline

vs

Bad4Good: Felony

Rich The Kid vs Drake

Rich The Kid vs Drake

November 27, 2020

This week is our last entry for Shitty Song of the Year as Branden and Red dive into the worst rap songs of 2020. Well, Branden finds one of the worst rap songs and Red gets lucky phoning it in with a song he never even heard. But still its worth going up to compete so we'll let that slide.

Pearl Jam vs Avril Lavigne

Red can't make it this week, but fortunately Jodie B from Po' Boys podcast joins the show to tear apart two of the most pandering country songs to ever exist. But it's up to you to decide which is worse, a song with every country stereotype thrown into it. Or what could quite possibly be the birth of hick-hop. It's a real toss up between:

Toby Keith: Made in America

vs

Big & Rich: Rollin' (The Ballad of Big & Rich)

October 30, 2020

This week we're once again joined by Pat Oates to look at the world of pop music.

Blink-182 Vs Bowling For Soup

October 23, 2020

This week we kill one of our own babies as Jodie would say as we take a look at Punk music. Well, pop punk anyway, to see what is more irritating; a song that tries to portray teenage angst from men in their 40's, or a song about the "Dream Punk Rock Girl" who sounds pretty fucking disgusting. Who gets to take the title home this week between:

Blink-182: This is Home

vs

Bowling For Soup: Girl All The Bad Guys Want

Psy vs Eiffel 65

October 19, 2020

This week we take a look at annoying pop earworms to see what is more irritating, a K-Pop hit that was made popular thanks to the YouTube generation for a stupid video, or an early 2000's Italian synth-pop hit that honestly a child could write, and I'm pretty sure did. Who's taking the title this week between:

Psy- Gangnam Style

vs

Eiffel 65- Blue (Da Ba Dee)

Soulja Boy vs Shop Boyz

October 9, 2020

A certain brand of rap with a very short life span, these are some of the more annoying songs we've gone through. All of that just to see what's more irritating, a kid rapper trying to be explicit and dirty, or a group of rappers who can't grasp the concept of how rock stars party. You get to decide between:

Soulja Boy: Crank That

vs

Shop Boyz: Party Like a Rockstar
