Bryan got to talk about his favorite misogynist genre of music he grew up with so I wanted to do my own. He was kind of aged out of this during it’s meteoric rise but as a sensitive young man who liked his eyebrows plucked and his jeans extremely tight in the early 2000’s there was nothing better than ccreamo. That maligned musical genre made up of sadness, narcissism, cheating, and 20 more toxic flavors of woe-is-me frustrations with the world.
We started in the early 90’s with bands that a lot of you will probably like. We talked about Orchid, Swing Kids, The Locust, The Blood Brothers, and Indian Summer. We then delved into the sweetest pop heavy hitters like Taking Back Sunday, Thursday, and Underoath. We closed it out with a discussion about the lead singer of Brand New being a sexual assaulter and all the problematic shit that comes with screaming your feelings at the top of your lungs being your only method of communication.
