It's White Stripes week on the Throwback Pod as the guys look back at "Elephant", one of the greatest albums of the aughts. Bob and Dan discuss how "Seven Nation Army" took out Gary Glitter, toast Jack White's divorce etiquette, and try to unwrap the riddle that is Meg White.
The guys welcome Headgum honchos Jake Hurwitz and Amir Blumenfeld into the garage to discuss Weezer's 1996 commercial-flop-turned-cult-classic, Pinkerton. Why was this album so misunderstood? That requires digging into the unique mind of one Rivers Cuomo.
Dan and Bob travel back to 2004 and the release of Hot Fuss, the multi-platinum breakthrough by The Killers. The guys ponder whether this is the best "A-side" of the '00s and marvel at the record's incredible sway and power over the city of Hoboken. Soul ≠ Soldier.
In the debut episode of The Throwback Podcast, Dan Hanzus and Bob Castrone discuss their bosom buddy origin story, then dial back the time machine to August 1997 and the release of Oasis' infamous flop, "Be Here Now". There will be morse code, helicopter whirring, cocaine, and more guitar rock than the world was ready for. Did we mention cocaine?
