This Song Sucks Season 2 Episode 9

"Don't Stop Believin'" by Journey

Austin Lancaster joins Josh and Hayden to pick apart the karaoke favorite “Don’t Stop Believin'” by Journey. Does everyone love this song for some reason? Yes. Does that automatically make it good? Heck no.

Austin takes us into his past to explain why the song holds a particularly hated place in his heart, Josh unearths some questionable bass playing, and Hayden is pretty sure that Journey’s manager was actually a cast member on Seinfeld.

Check out Austin’s band, Blackboot Family Band, on Spotify!

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.
