Amazing how many "music gods" were violent POS. Well told and researched, hosted by a mellow-voiced smooth talker and complemented with equal parts dreamy and eerie music. Just don't binge too much, it can get dark.

Very interesting. Thoroughly researched and cleverly presented. Sometimes I wonder where hard facts end and educated conjecture begins but, it's all in fun so I just enjoy.

Jennifer Hudson: An American Idol, a Triple Homicide, and Undying Faith
00:37:15

Jennifer Hudson shocked her hometown of Chicago when she was eliminated from American Idol in 2004, only to surpass everyone’s expectations when she later raked in awards and rave reviews for her role in Dreamgirls. Yet grief washed over Chicago again when her mother and brother were found slain in their Englewood home, and the smallest member of the Hudson family was declared missing. Their tragic story begins with betrayal and ends with a heartbreak so severe, only Jennifer’s long-standing faith could put it back together.

The Sex Pistols (Pt. 2): Crashing the Queen’s Jubilee, Shocking America, and Leaving a Trail of Blood, Spit, and Junk
00:37:04

In 1977, the world’s most controversial band didn’t stop when they were dropped by their major label only months after they were signed. John Lydon, Steve Jones, and the Sex Pistols continued their feud with the corporate music world, the English monarchy, and a horrified public. It was a struggle made all the more difficult by the introduction of the group’s most volatile member, a junkie who was barely clean–or competent enough–to find his way around four strings. The band’s grand plan to conquer America royally backfired and ultimately led to an explosive and bloody downfall. To paraphrase Neil Young, "this is the story of a Johnny Rotten," but it’s also a story about how great music can shock, scandalize, and galvanize the world. 


This episode contains themes that may be disturbing to some listeners and includes descriptions of self-harm.

The Sex Pistols (Pt. 1): Anarchy, Thievery, and the Death of Rock ‘n’ Roll
00:36:35

Punk rock’s greatest debut record was penned by a singer who saw traditional rock ‘n roll as a disease that needed to be eradicated and a sex-addicted guitarist who stole wallets, bikes, cars, and more than a few pieces of musical equipment to outfit the band. They cut their teeth performing for hardened criminals at a maximum security prison. They destroyed other bands’ gear and slept with their girlfriends. They scammed the working class system that had scammed them for years, by convincing the biggest record label in the world to release their controversial music. And they did all of this before the most infamous Pistol of all ever strapped on a bass guitar and pretended he knew how to play.


This episode contains themes that may be disturbing to some listeners, including self-harm and child sexual abuse.

Taylor Swift: Interstate Stalking, Vanishing Masters, and Love Letters Gone Wrong (Best of Disgraceland Season 9)
00:40:23

Taylor Swift has a list of stalkers longer than her stadium tour setlists. One drove over 900 miles to hand-deliver his “love” letters to her then-record-label, Big Machine Records. Others have showed up to her homes bearing rope, lock picks, and tools to break her windows. The threats on her life have become so persistent that her security team once installed facial recognition software at the venues she performed in, specifically to distinguish her stalkers from her fans. While making some of the most recognizable pop songs in music history, Taylor Swift also became one of the most recognizable women in the celebrity sphere – a title that on many occasions has nearly cost her life.

This episode contains themes that may be disturbing to some listeners, including descriptions of stalking and sexual assault.
