Why I Hate This Album Podcast
Two friends, Tim Richardson and Garrett Harvey in 2018 began sharing their views on albums that are commonly disliked by music fans and albums sparking controversy. A few discussed: Nickelback, Creed, Brittany Spears, System of a Down (Toxicity), and Sublime.
Each album they discuss provide a quick introspective of the artist's music and takes about each song in the album creating their own narrative to the lyrics with a mix of dry humor. For example, in their review of 100 Gecs by 1000 Gecs, they create a story of a robot who is killing others and performs sexual acts in the not-so-distant future. This podcast is excellent for those who don’t want to listen to bad music.
