Ever thought about how making a billion dollars would ruin your life? Maybe you pondered a lot of options (revolutionary coup, botched CoolSculpting, basic bitch drug cartel kidnapping), but you MIGHT have missed an obvious one if you haven’t read all the People mag listicles about Shania Twain’s divorce-slash-husband-swap! Long story short, do NOT hire someone to be your best friend and then leave them alone in a palatial Swiss chalet with your superproducer husband while you go on tour. Evan, Andrew, and friend of the pod Jiji Lee discuss how Shania and Mutt Lange’s ballad remains the most perfect ballad of all time even after their gruesome divorce, and also how paradoxically it could be improved by leaning into Shania’s sheer fury over being spurned, with an added bonus of it being very hard to extradite criminals from Switzerland. Guest: Jiji Lee You can now watch the video version of this episode HERE! Walk-in music: ‘(Everything I Do) I Do It For You’ by Bryan Adams; ‘Highway To Hell’ by ACDC; ‘Someday’ by Mariah Carey.

Have you ever felt like you were the only lonely person walking down a boulevard? Well we've got news for you. You're not alone. 90% of all humans have felt like they're the only one who can understand themselves before their brain finishes developing at age 25. Evan, Andrew, and Joanna Hausmann dive in to what makes Green Day the perfect band for the adolescent mind, why Boulevard of Broken Dreams is the musical equivalent of dogs playing poker, and if Green Day have sold out or not.  Guest: Joanna Hausmann You can now watch the video version of this episode HERE!

Is it rude to name your band after an event in which your friends and colleagues died? Is it rude to fire your lead singer immediately after he shreds his vocal chords singing the biggest hit of the 1980s? Well, apparently you don't care about this sort of stuff if you're a true SURVIVOR, because you've got THE EYE OF THE TIGER! Evan and Andrew welcome back Arthur Meyer to Punch Up The Jam, who comes ready not only with a pitch-ready idea for the punch up, but with the dumbest yet most impressive party trick that Evan and Andrew have ever seen! But our intrepid hosts have an ace up their sleeve to shock their guest before the Punch is truly Punched! Guest: Arthur Meyer You can now watch the video version of this episode HERE!

Can a song be TOO catchy? Can a song be improved by making it WORSE, unlike what we do every other week, which is making every song better? Can a song be so good that it drags its singer into a black-holey whirlpool of one-hit-wonderdom? Well, the answer to all of these questions is YES, specifically because of Iyaz’s 2009 banger “Replay.” Evan, Andrew, & Phil Jamesson brainstorm ways to improve it simply by making it worse while also shop talking about YouTube, the Ocean State Job Lot, Waldenbooks, and whether pirating Independence Day could land you in jail. Guest: Phil Jamesson You can now watch the video version of this episode HERE! Walk-in music: ‘Rude’ by Iyaz; ‘Bad Habit’ by Steve Lacy; ‘Enter Sandman’ by Metallica.

Andrew, Evan, and nearly genetically identical guest Michael, discuss a dimension of our multiverse in which Bill Withers became a billionaire by having all his songs recorded by Aretha Franklin and Michael Jackson instead of singing them himself. But then they come to the immediate conclusion that that alternate universe is an entirely worse place for it, because we don’t have the privilege of hearing Bill Withers’ beautiful everyman voice, and also being a billionaire doesn’t even make Bill happy. The brothers compete to see which one of them is closest to breaking the current world record for singing the longest note, argue about how out of tune ‘Lovely Day’ is, and after Michael surprises our hosts with a surprise bonus Punch Up, laugh until they cry. Guest: Michael Gregory. You can now watch the video version of this episode HERE!

Grudgingly yet proudly acknowledging their middle-aged-ness, Evan and Andrew call in a ringer to shed some light on what the hell David Bowie is imagining when he thinks of Young Americans. Pimps? Hustlers? Richard Nixon?!? Had this guy even BEEN to America?!? Along the way, our hosts reminisce about their viral collaboration “It’s Corn,” Bruce Springsteen plagiarism, whether cocaine can make you a fascist*, and, for no discernible reason, revisit Andrew’s worst opinion. *yes.

A red-eye flight?!?! FROM Atlanta?!?! Well those travel...EAST! Evan & Andrew wax philosophical about why The Chicks' "Goodbye Earl" demonstrably takes place in France, whether they love music too much or hate music too much, and the dumbest arguments they've ever had about songwriting during their last audio-only episode before Punch Up The Jam's big move to audio AND video next week! Andrew calls his shot early for the Punch Up and performs our intrepid hosts' first ever LIVE Punch Up. Along the way they blaze through some corrections and look back at the most romantic moment ever inspired by Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums List. Starting next Thursday, 10/13, you'll be able to tune into Punch Up The Jam video episodes (in addition to audio) via The Gregory Brothers YouTube channel!

If you learn one thing from this song, it's that when anything goes wrong in your life, you simply must accuse others of being rude. How RUDE! You asked me to put a shirt on in the DMV?? Rude!! This is a huge hit that is completely upside down in its assessment of who exactly is being rude. Evan & Andrew are assisted in uprighting this song by prominent manners experts and comedy band The Wolves Of Glendale. An unassailable punch up is delivered. Important side discussions on the bad movie Hider In The House, Sebastian the Crab, and the Dixie Chicks air travel.  Guests: Tom McGovern, Ethan Edenburg, and Eric "Juicy for Busey" Jackowitz of Wolves of Glendale.

🎶I'd like to be🎶....punching up a song from the Fab Four! A scary prospect! And that's even before you get the tentacles involved. Obviously fans of the pod have been begging for a Beatles punch up for ages and we've just been too intimidated until now, tiptoeing through Lennon & McCartney solo work as prelude. But today WE'VE DONE IT. With the intrepid help of Beatlemaniac and Professional Reviewer Reilly Anspaugh, we got to the bottom of this song and the bottom of the ocean. Extensive non-maritime sidebars on cave geology, Evan's all-too-brief marimba career, and things a squirrel can do to a hollow log. Guest: Reilly Anspaugh of Headgum's Review Revue.  Walk-in music: ‘Act Naturally' by Buck Owens; SpongeBob SquarePants Theme Song; 'Honky Cat' by Elton John.

'Shine' by Collective Soul

'Shine' by Collective Soul

2022-09-1501:13:20

duh nunu nununu nununu nunu nuh YEAH it's a new ep about this 90s classic! 'Shine' by Collective Soul was a huge hit, but it was only a demo! Don't give up on your dreams kids! Andrew & Evan unearth some surprising arcana about this band's success, but not before they get in some corrections about nudity, review this song's covers by Smashing Pumpkins and Dolly Parton, and imagining fictional covers by Paula Abdul and Bel Biv DeVoe. Andrew gets so sad and self-reflective he threatens to stare into the sunset and damage his retinas! Then Andrew turns it around, rediscovers joy, and punches up the song in a twisted way. Walk-in music: ‘Space Suit' by They Might Be Giants; ‘It’s Corn’ by The Gregory Brothers, Recess Therapy, and Tariq.

Andrew & Evan get scientific help from Shelby and EJ to philosophically probe Bruno Mars’ “Lazy Song,” asking: if you have the laziest day in the history of days, didn’t that, well, probably require some great amount of planning and effort on that part? And don’t you get additional marks off if you even thought about doing P90X, or any other thing from the year 2011?  Guests: Shelby Wolstein and EJ Marcus of Keeping Records podcast. Walk-in music: 'I'll Get Along' by Michael Kiwanuka; 'Over The Rainbow' by Israel Kamakawiwoʻole; 'Door' by Caroline Polchek; 'The Way' by Clay Aiken.

Evan and Andrew turn their gaze inward when Annie Rauwerda (Depths of Wikipedia) incisively declares that their entire podcast is built on a foundation of hating. Is it too late for Evan and Andrew to walk away from their office cooler of Haterade™️?? Or has Punch Up The Jam, and a career of reading YouTube comments hardened their hearts? The final boss of this challenge is Annie's confounding opinion that Cascada's 2007 hit "Everytime We Touch" is the "perfect song." As they fight this demon, they discover their inner hot librarian and write a punch up that would make any Wikipedia editor blush. Guest: Annie Rauwerda aka Depths of Wikipedia.

You want romance? How about a list of geriatric ailments? Oh, swoon! Yep, this song is probably the front runner for "most played as a wedding first dance", and it's in serious need of a punch up. Evan & Andrew, first of all, solve the mystery of 17 vs 70, and then go on to break open a series of other earth-shaking quandaries like, Does Ed Sheeran know about smizing? Did James Blunt prevent WWIII? And what do Marvin Gaye and Marilyn Manson have to do with this treacly ballad?  Walk-in music: ‘Macarena’ by Los Del Río; ‘A Whiter Shade of Pale’ by Annie Lennox Follow Punch Up The Jam on Twitter and Instagram Get the punch-ups for yourself and support the show on Patreon Like the show?

Is Brandy getting played?? Is she in denial? And is this song yacht rock about old-timey pirates or a sea shanty about yacht rockers? One thing is for sure: issa bop. Andrew & Evan are joined by Jon Gabrus (Corked, Action Boyz, 101 Places to Party Before You Die) to break it down and punch it up. They discover why Jon wants to have his neck snapped, how to have sexual intercourse with the whole ocean, and exacerbate the long-running New Jersey / Long Island music feud.  Guest: Jon Gabrus. Listen to him on Headgum's new miniseries Corked. Walk-in music: ‘Who Is She 2 U’ by Brandy; ’The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face’ by Roberta Flack; ‘Princes of the Universe’ by Queen.

Is this song a fun romp or barbaric atrocity? Evan enlists horror movie experts Sammy Smart and Emily Gonzales (Too Scary; Didn't Watch) to dissect and dismember this terrifying and insane dance hit.

This song was slandered as “The Worst Song of the 80s”. Why?? It rocks! But as Andrew and Evan get way way into, it also sucks in unique and exciting and dumb ways. An absolutely devastating ep, with crucial insights into: what is hoopla; pre-boomer boomer attitudes, why you always go back to the mamba, calling in favors at MTV, and what is the difference between the professional French farter Le Petomaine and Marcel Proust.  Walk-in music: 'Kites Are Fun' by The Free Design; 'Nocturne Opus 9 No. 2 (Eb)' by Chopin.

Imagine a world that is in every possible respect different from our own. Yeah, just give it a whirl. It's easy if you TRY.  ...So says history's biggest imagination bully, John Lennon. We rip off the uplifting latex face mask of this song and bare the dark soul within: this song thinks it's better than you. Our very very prepared guest Arthur Meyer (The Tonight Show, The Onion) has some extremely helpful punch-up suggestions, and helps us roam through discussions of global resource scarcity, Russell Crowe, and the top-secret-but-real Clearchannel "Do Not Play" List!  Guest: Arthur Meyer (here's his album of Beatles covers) Walk-in music: 'Planets' by Joseph; 'Monkberry Moon Delight' by Linda McCartney and Paul McCartney; 'Another Night' by M.C. Sar and Real McCoy.  NOTE: This ep was recorded before Andrew went on paternity leave. Nice to hear his familiar voice though. Instead of just imagining it. Which is easy, if you try.  "Wipe that smirk off your face!" Follow Punch Up The Jam on Twitter and Instagram Support the show on Patreon and get all the punch-ups for your darn self Like the show?

Around the 21 minute mark they begin talking about Okie from Muskogee. What's interesting about that is, there is a great possibility Merle Haggard was actually being facetious, poking fun at those who hold those types of beliefs. Check out the podcast Cocaine and Rhinestones for a story about that. Find it here: https://cocaineandrhinestones.com/merle-haggard-okie-from-muskogee

I love Miel and Demi and the show, but sometimes they have the most inexplicable blind spots/obliviousness. Complaining that completely different sounding music being separated into different genres is somehow a method against black artists while rock and metal have probably 30 sub-genres between them... uh, ok guys, sure. Other times they are so incredibly insightful I literally have to pause an episode as previously held opinions/assumptions melt under their brilliance.

The guy's antics really pissed me off in this episode; constantly interrupting and playing music from his phone. He wants to upstage a real dissection of the song and turn it into a show about his jokes. Like 1/4 or 1/5 of what he says is funny or useful.

so I guess it's time to unsubscribe? I loved the dynamic of the duo with a guest, but a 1 on 1 seems boring besides talking to her dad. also miel's voice bores on you when it's mostly her talking. fun while it lasted.
