“Did Eric Sperimental Just Take Me to the Punk Rock Carnival?”
On this episode of Best Song Ever the Dear Cousins LaBenne create the lore of journalist/prospector/superhero Poppy Nuggz, his older brother Funky Nuggz and their arch nemesis Eric Sperimental, while on a truly strange horse ride of pop song vibes. Luke talks about Hamilton coming to Detroit and adds some fart noises to the classic songs, they discuss how Brian enjoys using song lyrics to hurt those he loves, Brian kills our imaginary horse Charlevoix and the boys start a Dawson’s Creek fancast all while they play the eight best songs you’ll hear all week!
Every week Ghettoblaster feature writers (and dear cousins!) Brian LaBenne and Luke LaBenne bring you fresh new songs with the hopes of introducing you to some that you may consider to be the best song ever. Both Brian and Luke have no idea what songs the other has picked, so what you are hearing is their genuine reaction to listening to the songs together.
