This Song Sucks Season 2 Episode 6

"Beverly Hills" by Weezer

Guest host Bo Hicks joins the boys this week to share in his hatred for Weezer’s only top ten single “Beverly Hills.” Don’t worry Weezeheads: there’s plenty of Pinkerton talk before the fellas start dunking on this Stinkerton of a song.

Bo (like many fans of early era Weezer) feels betrayed by this song, Hayden finds an odd comparison for the shitty guitar solo, and Josh finds an opportunity to talk about how much he hates the sound of children singing for the second week in a row.

Shout out to Sarah Ferguson for creating the kickass image for the episode. We’re calling it “Rivers Bo-mo.” Check her out on Instagram @pedigree_chum.

Leave us a review on the apps if you’re so inclined. Josh enjoys reading the opinions of strangers, especially if said opinion is negative in nature.

Follow us on Instagram and Twitter for insights into the way Hayden’s mind works. Please direct all comments, song suggestions, and hate mail to thissongsuckspod@gmail.com. If you write something that tickles us, we may even feature it on a future episode.

As mentioned in the episode, there’s This Song Sucks merch now available! Check out the link below to browse through what’s available from us as well as all the other great shows on The Alabama Take:
