Gotta Get Out Of This Town

Do you remember the 2000s? We don't*. So to remind ourselves we created a spreadsheet of every. single. record.

Gotta Get Out of This Town is a podcast retrospective where we listen to all of those record chronologically.

Episode 6 The Suicide Machines - The Suicide Machines Late Stage Oasis
This week we time travel to the year 2000 and take a look at the only pop punk record in the discography of Ska-core band The Suicide Machines. It's weird and not particularly good... but at least doing research for this episode got Elaine into the band's other stuff so... silver lining I guess?

"You're not supposed to lick the music Ellie!"
In this bonus episode we explore four important punk records from the 90s, and talk about the genres that led to the 2000s pop punk movement.

EPISODE NOTES CORRECTION: It should be noted that Fletch was in fact misguided and there is no Kidz Bopz version of F@?ing Problems, and it was in fact just a Jimmy Kimmel skit. *THE DOWNFALL OF WESTERN CIVILIZATION: https:...
