We promised you we'd do it, and we're here to deliver. On this week's episode, Merl, El and Steve review every single track on Metallica's mammoth-sized Blacklist project. Yes, that's right: all 53 Black Album covers get rated and slated, including fresh takes on Metallica classics by Ghost, Miley Cyrus, Biffy Clyro, Rina Sawayama, Volbeat, The Hu, Royal Blood, Weezer, St Vincent, David Gahan, My Morning Jacket and many, many, many more.

We also discuss what makes a great cover, why the rock bands on The Blacklist are at a disadvantage compared to everyone else and which covers might even exceed the originals. Plus, we pick our ultimate Blacklist Tracklist using just one version of each song.

Bob Saget's Here For You

Bob Saget's Here For You

BOB SAGET’S HERE FOR YOU is a podcast that is like no other— For one, this podcast has guests who are friends of Bob’s, or just really interesting people who many of you know and love. Secondly, this podcast is unique because it goes inside Bob Saget’s mind, and then quickly filters out through his mouth. Bob has a way of calming people he has conversations with as well as being entertaining and often informative. Bob talks with his guests with genuine empathy and humor, while reaching his unusually diverse audience that he talks to as a friend, Bob is the dad with great advice, the irreverent funny guy who’s always there when you need a laugh, and the free-associative Bob who goes off on crazy tangents then returns to the subject at hand, as serious or as comedic as it may be, to wrap up each episode in a way only Bob can do. Because he really does believe, “He’s here for you."
