  • Two of My Biggest Inspirations!!!

    I’ve been listening to this podcast for about two years now and it’s one of my favorite things ever. As someone who gets criticized for being critical of art and media, I definitely relate to both Heather and Mike. I think it’s good to dissect music because it’s a reflection of our culture. There are so many POC, women, and LGBTQ+ folk who have shaped so many genres and created trends, but never get the credit they deserve. I’m glad that some people are willing to share unpopular opinions on bel... more

  • More Cynical Jukebox Zeroes

    So, this is basically Jukebox Zeroes, except way more politically charged (even some guests seem to notice-Scott in the TMNT ep) and the pitfalls such people fall into. If you can get past that, tho-and not everyone can- it’s perfectly decent, and it is a slightly different POV than JZ. Also, they hate twenty one pilots. That alone is a star off.

  • No fun, just bitterness

    This podcast is neither funny nor adds anything of substance to the discussion of music. The entire episode was complaining about the same points over and over with the hosts, specifically Heather (I think), just talking over the other host and guest; if you’re going to invite a guest on, at least give them a chance to speak their opinion instead of trying to invalidate every point they make with your grating impressions and very poorly researched nonsense. I listen to other “bad music” podcasts... more

  • Brutally funny, and unfazed by hallowed ground.

    If your in the market for a podcast about bad albums, and are okay with what some might dismiss and discredit as musical heresy (Say, openly hating on Tool or subjecting Marilyn Manson to ruthless, yet on-point, psychoanalysis), Make It Stop is for you. Whether you like your musical humor to focused on the big targets, or utterly heretical in the ultimate act of punching upward, you’ll find at least one episode that’ll get a laugh out of you. more
