This episode is a listener request from Jack, who thought he could fake his way into “cool” music with this album. Boy was he wrong.
We cover the way-too-late-but-somehow-successful “Lips of an Angel” by DIY butt-rockers Hinder. With some of the worst vocals and the absolute worst stage presence, the singer spins a tale of talking dirty to an ex while his current girlfriend applies lotion in the next room.
We discover this song’s weird, record-breaking ties to early internet music technology including Myspace autoplays and cellphone ringtones, hear from commenters who definitely shouldn't be using this song as a blueprint for their own relationships, and FINALLY reveal the origin of this show’s chill Cali vibes.
