114 - Danger Cracker (Hoobastank - The Reason)

FullSizeRender 18.jpg

This week we’re taking on Hoobastank and their gigantic, sorry-about-the-domestic-violence mega-hit, “The Reason,” whose music video features an inexplicable jewel heist. (probably a good idea in retrospect)

My guest Michael remembers this being the moment his beloved Hoobastank “sold out”, we draw a definitive line between real music and fake music, I remember being forced to sing Christian parodies of popular secular songs (like this one), lead singer DougRobb sings a Sonic the Hedgehog theme about fistbumping, and much more.

Music We Like: Joni Mitchel, The Roches, & Brand New’s “Science Fiction”
