The One About How Womyn Rock

On this episode of Best Song Ever, recorded on the day of the worldwide Women’s Marches in protest to Donald Trump’s inauguration, Luke and Brian protest in the form of podcasting (protcast? protestcast?) and dedicate the episode to songs from women/women fronted bands.  They discuss how they’ve hunkered down in the bunker of the Doom Tomb and are stocking provisions to get through the next four years and Luke goes on a bit of a rant, ultimately pointing out how ridiculous Reince Priebus’ name is.  Other topics of conversation include Dr. Robotnik, Band and Boujee and how we really how women don’t spontaneously combust.

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.  Also, if you enjoy this episode, head to ITunes to subscribe and rate our podcast with the highest rating available to you.
