R.E.M.'s seventh studio did it all. Won Grammys? CHECK. Produced the band's biggest single ever? CHECK. Invented rap-rock? CHECK AND CHECK. This week Bob an Dan go back to 1991 and push play on the biggest album that all the cool college kids were listening to in the early 90's. So sit back as Michael Stipe, The Greatest Backing Vocalist In Rock History, and The Billionaire enter the coveted Throwback Podcast Two-Timer Club.
ATN HERO Marc Sessler joins Dan and Bob in the Throwback Podcast Studio (a.k.a. rented garage) to take a walk down memory lane and share the music that soundtracked his life. From Duran Duran to Richard Marx to a man named Dave, come with us on a journey, and experience MARC... in the Key of C.
The Cranberries' second studio album sold over 17 million copies worldwide. It ALSO beat out Hole, Collective Soul, and Sheryl Crow in Bruno The Sponsor's "Dealer's Choice" Patreon Poll.

In the meantime, let's go back twenty-five years to 1994 to revisit No Need To Argue and, more importantly, unpack the sordid details of Bob's big 9th grade fist fight.
