Music Commentary

Dan Hanzus and Bob Castrone love listening to music- almost as much as they love hanging out in a garage and talking about it. On The Throwback Podcast, lifelong friends revisit important albums from their past and go through them–track by track– with fresh ears. From the classics to the cringeworthy, every week is a throwback.


We're going back, back, back in time- 30 years to be exact. Let's revisit the Top 10 Billboard hits from this week in September, 1989. Hair metal, R&B ballads, pop classics, and a surprising amount of talk about the Northridge Quake of '94. Cherish this one.

It sold 15 MILLION copies. Spawned multiple HUGE hits. Introduced the world (and, more importantly, Carlos Santana) to Rob Thomas. But in 1996... Dan and Bob HATED IT. The question is: why? Why were the teenage BFF's anti-Matchers? Why did they hold onto that hatred for decades? And why are they finally ready to finally give Rob & Co. a chance today? Do Matchbox 20 (twenty?) have what it takes to win them over, or... or will they push them away?

SUBLIME - Sublime

We don't practice Santeria, we don't got no crystal ball, and we definitely don't have a million dollars to spend (at all). But we do have an hour or so to comb through all 18 tracks of Sublime's breakout 1996 LP. If you hate summer, Patreon poll winning albums, or two white guys sharing their thoughts on reggae, you might want to skip this one. Life's too short.
