Never Found in the 80s - Black Flag

One of the first and most influential American hardcore punk bands, Black Flag was a champion of punk's do-it-yourself ethic. They had their own label (SST Records) and they followed their own ideas on the kind of music they wanted to make, sometimes to the chagrin of their own fans.

If you're not putting The Band back together, this Robbie Robertson hit is the next best thing

How could we have forgotten Gettysburg ... the song?!?

No 'Back to the Future' remakes, director swears over his dead body. That's heavy!

Remakes? Where we're going, we don't need remakes. Back to the Future fans can take a deep breath. Your mother doesn't have the hots for you. There's no problem with the Earth's gravitational pull in the future. Chuck Berry never had a cousin named Marvin. Darth Vader isn't from the Planet Vulcan. And there will be NO REMAKE …

It's very rare that we get a chance anymore to do podcasts where at least two of the co-hosts are in the same room together.

Here's the show we did: a tribute to …
