The big movie ballads of 1998! From the blockbuster "Armageddon," Aerosmith's mammoth blockbuster hit "I Don't Wanna Miss a Thing!" From the decently profitable "City of Angels," The Goo Goo Dolls's mammoth blockbuster hit "Iris"! Which song will crush the other like a massive asteroid hitting the Earth?
Bonus episode! Hear Todd and Dany discuss the least-talked-about music event of the year! Did anyone exist besides Lizzo? Did Shawn Mendes burn up the screen with their "chemistry"? Did Lil Nas X remotely make a case for having a second hit? Is Taylor Swift still getting on our nerves? Did anyone remotely important decide to not skip the awards? Find out!
Get ready for an extremely content-warning-y episode as we talk about some dark topics as we debate which dark grunge classic should reign supreme, Pearl Jam's "Jeremy" vs. Soundgarden's "Black Hole Sun"!
Battle of the Makeup Wearing '80s Sad Boys! "Boys Don't Cry" by The Cure! "This Charming Man" by The Smiths! Who will win? And can we make it to the end of the episode talking about something besides Morrissey's awful politics?!
It's the battle of the '60s legends and their shameful late '80s sellout hits! Is former Beatle George Harrison's obnoxious "Got My Mind Set on You" the better song or is it a Brian Wilson-less Beach Boys and their irritating soundtrack smash "Kokomo"? iTunes description: It's the battle of the '60s legends and their shameful late '80s sellout hits!

It's an argument with no right answers. Comparing Gloria Gaynor's 1978 smash "I Will Survive" against The Bee Gees "Stayin' Alive" from 1977 is like asking a parent to pick a favorite child. And these are the indeed amongst the greatest progeny of Papa Disco.

There isn't a perfect answer to this conundrum. Boldly diving into this quagmire are Todd Nathanson and Danny Roth, who attempt to make sense of it all.
