Absolutely terrible, tries way too hard to be funny and fails miserably. That aside, it's just noise, constant fast babbling that says nothing of substance.

good Lord, this is hard to listen to. a bunch of people trying to be funny through every waking moment of the podcast. laughing at their own jokes like it's Junior high. unsubscribed.

Description

Every Thursday, Andrew and Evan Gregory (of The Gregory Brothers) are joined by a special guest to revisit, review, and revise a song of their choice, and then offer an improved "punched-up" version.


Episode Date
'Rude' by MAGIC! (w/ Wolves of Glendale)
4090

If you learn one thing from this song, it's that when anything goes wrong in your life, you simply must accuse others of being rude. How RUDE! You asked me to put a shirt on in the DMV?? Rude!! This is a huge hit that is completely upside down in its assessment of who exactly is being rude. Evan & Andrew are assisted in uprighting this song by prominent manners experts and comedy band The Wolves Of Glendale. An unassailable punch up is delivered. Important side discussions on the bad movie Hider In The House, Sebastian the Crab, and the Dixie Chicks air travel. 

Guests: Tom McGovern, Ethan Edenburg, and Eric "Juicy for Busey" Jackowitz of Wolves of Glendale.

Walk-in music: ‘Many Rivers to Cross' by Jimmy Cliff; '(I Just) Died in Your Arms' by Cutting Crew.

'Octopus's Garden' by The Beatles (w/ Reilly Anspaugh)
4804

🎶I'd like to be🎶....punching up a song from the Fab Four! A scary prospect! And that's even before you get the tentacles involved. Obviously fans of the pod have been begging for a Beatles punch up for ages and we've just been too intimidated until now, tiptoeing through Lennon & McCartney solo work as prelude. But today WE'VE DONE IT. With the intrepid help of Beatlemaniac and Professional Reviewer Reilly Anspaugh, we got to the bottom of this song and the bottom of the ocean. Extensive non-maritime sidebars on cave geology, Evan's all-too-brief marimba career, and things a squirrel can do to a hollow log.

Guest: Reilly Anspaugh of Headgum's Review Revue

Walk-in music: ‘Act Naturally' by Buck Owens; SpongeBob SquarePants Theme Song; 'Honky Cat' by Elton John.

'Shine' by Collective Soul
4344

duh nunu nununu nununu nunu nuh YEAH it's a new ep about this 90s classic! 'Shine' by Collective Soul was a huge hit, but it was only a demo! Don't give up on your dreams kids! Andrew & Evan unearth some surprising arcana about this band's success, but not before they get in some corrections about nudity, review this song's covers by Smashing Pumpkins and Dolly Parton, and imagining fictional covers by Paula Abdul and Bel Biv DeVoe. Andrew gets so sad and self-reflective he threatens to stare into the sunset and damage his retinas! Then Andrew turns it around, rediscovers joy, and punches up the song in a twisted way.

Walk-in music: ‘Space Suit' by They Might Be Giants; ‘It’s Corn’ by The Gregory Brothers, Recess Therapy, and Tariq.

'The Lazy Song' by Bruno Mars (w/ Shelby Wolstein and EJ Marcus)
5123

Andrew & Evan get scientific help from Shelby and EJ to philosophically probe Bruno Mars’ “Lazy Song,” asking: if you have the laziest day in the history of days, didn’t that, well, probably require some great amount of planning and effort on that part? And don’t you get additional marks off if you even thought about doing P90X, or any other thing from the year 2011? 

Guests: Shelby Wolstein and EJ Marcus of Keeping Records podcast.

Walk-in music: 'I'll Get Along' by Michael Kiwanuka; 'Over The Rainbow' by Israel Kamakawiwoʻole; 'Door' by Caroline Polchek; 'The Way' by Clay Aiken.

'Everytime We Touch' by Cascada (w/ Annie Rauwerda aka Depths of Wikipedia)
2829

Evan and Andrew turn their gaze inward when Annie Rauwerda (Depths of Wikipedia) incisively declares that their entire podcast is built on a foundation of hating. Is it too late for Evan and Andrew to walk away from their office cooler of Haterade™️?? Or has Punch Up The Jam, and a career of reading YouTube comments hardened their hearts? The final boss of this challenge is Annie's confounding opinion that Cascada's 2007 hit "Everytime We Touch" is the "perfect song." As they fight this demon, they discover their inner hot librarian and write a punch up that would make any Wikipedia editor blush.

Guest: Annie Rauwerda aka Depths of Wikipedia.

'Thinking Out Loud' by Ed Sheeran
4121

You want romance? How about a list of geriatric ailments? Oh, swoon! Yep, this song is probably the front runner for "most played as a wedding first dance", and it's in serious need of a punch up. Evan & Andrew, first of all, solve the mystery of 17 vs 70, and then go on to break open a series of other earth-shaking quandaries like, Does Ed Sheeran know about smizing? Did James Blunt prevent WWIII? And what do Marvin Gaye and Marilyn Manson have to do with this treacly ballad?

'Brandy (You're a Fine Girl)' by Looking Glass (w/ Jon Gabrus)
4829

Is Brandy getting played?? Is she in denial? And is this song yacht rock about old-timey pirates or a sea shanty about yacht rockers? One thing is for sure: issa bop. Andrew & Evan are joined by Jon Gabrus (Corked, Action Boyz, 101 Places to Party Before You Die) to break it down and punch it up. They discover why Jon wants to have his neck snapped, how to have sexual intercourse with the whole ocean, and exacerbate the long-running New Jersey / Long Island music feud. 

Guest: Jon Gabrus. Listen to him on Headgum's new miniseries Corked.

Walk-in music: ‘Who Is She 2 U’ by Brandy; ’The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face’ by Roberta Flack; ‘Princes of the Universe’ by Queen.

'Never Gonna Give You Up' by Rick Astley
4000

You know the rules, and so do I" Uh, what rules are you talking about there, Rick? Everything ok Rick? Why do you have that knife in your hand Rick? Do you usually keep that pair of leather gloves in your trench coat pocket? Did you really just bring me to this deserted warehouse to "Rick Roll" me Rick? Why...do you have that knife Rick? WHAT ARE THE RULES? RIIIIIIIIIIIIICK!!! RIIIIIIII –––

'I Need To Know' by Marc Anthony (w/ Rachel Green and Kirsten O’Brien of Boss Bitches)
3233

Punch Up The Jam has been nominated for Best Music Podcast in The People's Choice Podcast Awards! You can vote by "saving your nomination" after you sign up here.

Voting closes Sunday, July 31st, so vote while you can!

Evan is joined by Rachel Green and Kirsten O’Brien of Boss Bitches to settle the question at the heart of most modern utilitarian philosophy: If a song is the perfect song for Zumba, can it also be a terrible song? And if it WAS a terrible song, would J. Lo pull a lever to change the course of a trolley hurtling towards Marc Anthony and instead kill his other ex-wives who were standing on an adjacent track?

Guest: Rachel Green and Kirsten O'Brien of the Boss Bitch show.

Walk-in Music: 'He-Man: Opening Theme'; 'So What' by P!nk; 'Industry Baby' by Lil Nas X.

'Barbie Girl' by Aqua (w/ Sammy Smart & Emily Gonzalez of Too Scary; Didn't Watch)
4849

Is this song a fun romp or barbaric atrocity? Evan enlists horror movie experts Sammy Smart and Emily Gonzales (Too Scary; Didn't Watch) to dissect and dismember this terrifying and insane dance hit. Diversions include: trademark lawsuits in which the judge gets very cheeky, haircuts shaped like eyebrows, and the mullet of pants. 

Guest: Sammy Smart & Emily Gonzalez of Too Scary; Didn't Watch.

Walk-in music: 'Turtle Power' by Partners In Kryme; 'May I Have This Dance' by Francis and The Lights ft. Chance The Rapper; 'Bad Guy' by Billie Eilish.

'We Built This City' by Starship
3595

This song was slandered as “The Worst Song of the 80s”. Why?? It rocks! But as Andrew and Evan get way way into, it also sucks in unique and exciting and dumb ways. An absolutely devastating ep, with crucial insights into: what is hoopla; pre-boomer boomer attitudes, why you always go back to the mamba, calling in favors at MTV, and what is the difference between the professional French farter Le Petomaine and Marcel Proust. 

Walk-in music: 'Kites Are Fun' by The Free Design; 'Nocturne Opus 9 No. 2 (Eb)' by Chopin.

'Imagine' by John Lennon (w/ Arthur Meyer)
4613

Imagine a world that is in every possible respect different from our own. Yeah, just give it a whirl. It's easy if you TRY.  ...So says history's biggest imagination bully, John Lennon. We rip off the uplifting latex face mask of this song and bare the dark soul within: this song thinks it's better than you. Our very very prepared guest Arthur Meyer (The Tonight Show, The Onion) has some extremely helpful punch-up suggestions, and helps us roam through discussions of global resource scarcity, Russell Crowe, and the top-secret-but-real Clearchannel "Do Not Play" List! 

Guest: Arthur Meyer (here's his album of Beatles covers)

Walk-in music: 'Planets' by Joseph; 'Monkberry Moon Delight' by Linda McCartney and Paul McCartney; 'Another Night' by M.C. Sar and Real McCoy. 

NOTE: This ep was recorded before Andrew went on paternity leave. Nice to hear his familiar voice though. Instead of just imagining it. Which is easy, if you try. 

"Wipe that smirk off your face!"

4653

ARE YOU OKAY? Gianmarco Soresi stops by the podcast to discuss goths, outsized teenage emotions, music made in response to 9/11, debate the attractiveness of a sulky man, and much more. Read the bad, bad book that is this episode because unlike your jock boyfriend, this podcast just gets you.

'Frontin' by Pharrell (w/ Negin Farsad)
4542

Pharrell originally pitched this song to Prince, and we can confidently say, we’re glad Prince said no! This song rules! Makes you think, maybe Prince should have said no to more things! Negin Farsad returns to the pod bringing some personal history with this Pharrell feat. Jay-Z classic, and frankly more personal history than we needed as she recounts some shocking schoolyard taunts. Evan spends way too much time talking about cupping melons in the grocery store, and eventually punches Frontin up to much applause. 

Guest: Negin Farsad (Fake The Nation, Birdgirl)

Walk-in music: 'Rock Your Body' by Justin Timberlake; 'Boasty' by Wiley (Ft. Stefflon Don, Sean Paul, & Idris Elba)

'Mr. Blue Sky' by ELO (w/ Amy Miller)
3878

If you spent 6 weeks in a Swiss chalet, you'd probably write a beloved, feel-good rock hit too. Evan and comedian Amy Miller get into airplane etiquette like a couple of 90's stand-ups, an Elmer Fudd-ELO conspiracy like a couple of academic theorists, and wax problematic on humans having koala babies. Tune in to hear Evan punch-up this classic!

'Beggin' by Måneskin (w/ Daniel Thrasher)
4351

I’m beggin, beggin you, to listen to this tale of how evil bond-style supervillains are conspiring to take over society with This One New Sound that is actually old and grates on your ears. Daniel Thrasher stops into the pod before going out on tour to share the reason he hates this Måneskin song (apparently it’s a C#). Michael Gregory guest hosts to support Evan’s mental health (Evan really tests the bounds of sanity with this week’s punch)

Guest: Daniel Thrasher

Walk-in music: 'Tiptoe Through The Tulips' by Tiny Tim; 'Grazing In The Grass' by The Friends of Distinction.

'I Get Around' by The Beach Boys (w/ Tim Daniels)
4219

Evan's losing his mind and has Friend of the Pod and Beachboyologist Tim Daniels (The Complete Guide to Everything) in for triage. The Beach Boys: They got around in every way you’re thinking. In the fictional but sort of autobiographical world of this song there’s drag racing, hot promiscuous sex, bragging about fat stacks, and “cool head”, yikes. In the real world there was abuse, fights, drowning, beefing with other bands, not to mention the Manson family stuff. As the Beachies sang, Fun, Fun, FUN!

Guest: Tim Daniels

'Bring Me To Life' by Evanescence (w/ Michael Gregory)
4310

The song that launched a million emo kids! Have you ever felt like you can’t wake up? Did you try having a random dude yell CANT WAKE UP at you? Evan, set adrift as a solo host, sorely missing his cohost Andrew (who’s on paternity leave), pulls in the next best thing, his other brother Michael, who proceeds to hit a home run with a stunning GUEST PUNCH. This episode gets to the bottom of what Bring Me To Life is really about: no it’s not the clown from It, but he does come up for some goth reason. 

Guest: Michael Gregory

'With Arms Wide Open' by Creed (w/ Markiplier)
4259

With Ahms Wahd O-PAHNN. Why would we ever want to punch up this beloved song about daddy issues?? Evan and Andrew interrogate YouTube legend Markiplier (Mark Fischbach) about his childhood connection to this sensitive but rockin' tune. Many groundbreaking ideas and questions come to the surface: How NOT to do your album art photoshop, Why does Scott Stapp sing like a muppet, How does Andrew have a certain musical Spidey Sense, Why did Scott Stapp fight another rock band and have an orgy with Kid Rock?

Guest: Markiplier

'Dust in the Wind' by Kansas
3710

All we are is dust in the wind, dude. This crucial insight has been blowing the minds of rock fans for decades. Dust. Wind. Think about it man!! Andrew & Evan get into the nitty-gritty on this classic hit and are shocked, shocked to discover that the band Kansas is actually from Kansas!! And somehow this song is the first thing the singer ever learned to play on the guitar?? They get in a fight about Evan's soundboard abuse, but make up by the end of the episode to make a Very Special Announcement about hosting the podcast.  

Walk-in music: 'All My Life' by K-Ci & JoJo; 'Everywhere' by Fleetwood Mac.

'Levitating' by Dua Lipa (w/ Connor Ratliff)
6097

It's the hit of the century! It sounds like it's from the 1980s and the 2080s at the same time! Everyone and their pet alien loves this song, and that's why, to punch it up, we knew we had to enlist the help of Connor Ratliff, a legend in the podcastiverse for his dedication to dissecting utter minutiae. And Connor did not disappoint, at one point obsessing over the syllables in a single measure to the point that Evan yelled "YOU HAVE GASLIT YOURSELF!" Our intrepid astronauts veer across the Milky Way and discover connections from Dua Lipa's Levitating to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Jon Ossoff, and beer-brewing Trappist monks.

'Manic Monday' by The Bangles
3843

MONDAYS AMIRITE???? Is the very controversial claim at the heart of this huge 80s hit from the Bangles. Evan and Andrew investigate whether Mondays are really persecuting The Bangles orrrrrr was this song perhaps written by an alien who had just learned about human jobs? No, in fact, it was written by Prince, and this episode reveals that he plagiarized one of his own @%#$ songs when phoning in the writing of this overgrown nursery rhyme. DJs and producers, don’t miss the absolutely sick sample pack of snares that Evan drops at 17:45, completely manic. Historians, don’t miss Andrew’s insights about Mike Myers, Fun Days, and Sex Shooters. 

This week’s punch up is exTREMEly useful in your everyday life and if it had its own title other than “Manic Monday Punch Up” it would be “The Consequences Of My Actions” -- get this song and other punch ups on our Patreon: www.patreon.com/gregorybrothers and support the pod!

'The Reason' by Hoobastank (w/ Mano Agapion)
4384

“I’m not a perfect person,” begins this very imperfect song by perfectly named Hoobastank. NO DURR. Mano Agapion (Drag Her, Podcast Killed The Video Star) absolutely hoobed in with some stanky insights, and we can now call this song what it is: abuse. Even more shocking discoveries are made about the SoCal ska scene, Ross from Friends, and Biff from Back to the Future. Andrew brings an eye-opening punch up to the show that changes everything. And the reason is…..you.

Guest: Mano Agapion

'Down On The Farm' by Tim McGraw (w/ Dana Schwartz) ft. Zachary Williams on vocals
3940

Andrew comes to the pod this week with a barnyard axe to grind: Why ain’t there country music for them northerners? Down On The Farm by Tim McGraw proves the PERfect vessel for his punch up which turns out inventing an entirely new subgenre of music!! Evan is both aghast and delighted. Dana Schwartz (Anatomy: A Love Story; Noble Blood) saves the day as official Rhode Island Consultant, and together they figure out a lot about Quahogs, casual country sexism, wine scrotums, and Hollywood nepotism.

Guest: Dana Schwartz

'Como Me Quieres' by Khruangbin
3824

Khruangbin: indie darlings that combine world music with vintage soul, all while making you feel like you stumbled into one of those Chill Beats Study Music For A Rainy Day playlists. Incredible music with one HUGE problem that results in a....punch up that is serious? That probably should win a Grammy? For those keeping score at home, Evan thinks he's gonna get away with not having to lose at trivia, but Andrew spontaneously springs one on him during this week's corrections round-up.

'I Want It That Way' by Backstreet Boys (w/ Jack Douglass and Erin Breslin)
3602

You want it...that way? WHAT WAY?!? Evan and Andrew are joined by Backstreet Boys' superfans Jack Douglass and Erin Breslin to get to the bottom of WHAT WAY the Backstreet Boys so desperately wanted, while also wanting so desperately for their fire, their one desire, to NOT also want even as they were wanting it. Wow. Along the way, our gang also discusses the songs most entangled by their relationships with direct objects, the Susquehanna River, and the crimes of Lou Pearlman.

'Sexy Bitch' by David Guetta ft. Akon (w/ Justin Richmond)
4431

You know that feeling when you wanna say something really respectful, that recognizes someone’s personhood and beauty both inner and outer? Akon had that feeling, and it ended badly. Andrew and Evan bring in Actual Music Podcaster Justin Richmond to help figure out this completely insane song, and on their journey they find similarities to Point Break, suspiciously strong similarities to this one 80s hit, and similarities to how your history paper turns out when you try to do it all in one night. 

Guest: Justin Richmond

Walk-in music: 'Ode to Joy (Banjo)' by Carter Burwell from the Raising Arizona ending credits; 'Hit 'Em Up' by 2Pac; 'Big Sur' by The Thrills

'Flavor of the Weak' by American Hi-Fi (w/ Jake Hurwitz)
4721

Our intrepid hosts explore the sub-sub-sub genre of pop-punk songs about high school love triangles by Berklee College of Music graduates. There’s a lot to unpack! Jazz chords, Miley Cyrus’s thanksgiving plans, and screaming the word NINTENDO, for starters. Along the way, Evan and Andrew use their intimate knowledge of loving but occasionally antagonistic brotherly relationships to ingratiate themselves with their boss.

Meanwhile, while staring out the window of their podcast, they stumble upon a shocking secret that will turn the music industry on its head...and turn Punch Up The Jam into a true crime podcast forever...

'I Won't Back Down' by Tom Petty (w/ Kristen Bartlett and Jason Gore)
4681

Just what was it that made Tom Petty so afraid that he had to shout from the rooftops, “I Won’t Back Down??” Well, we got into it, and okay, it’s pretty bad. It’s a real heartbreaker. But a butterfly flaps its wings over an intentionally set house fire in Los Angeles, and 30 years later, it brought us together with Kristen Bartlett (Full Frontal with Samantha Bee) and Jason Gore (The Best Show) to deliver a punch that is so shocking it may have converted this show into a True Crime pod??

'Deja Vu' by Olivia Rodrigo (w/ Tim Daniels and Tom Reynolds)
4519

In a rare and dangerous maneuver, Evan and Andrew decide to punch up a chart-topper so recent that they could topple from its vertiginous heights. Unfortunately after listening to 'Deja Vu' dozens of times, they still cannot parse the references to a little known indie rock band named Billy Joel. To rescue the punch, they called in expert witnesses Tim and Tom from The Complete Guide to Everything podcast. Thankfully, they know about everything. Resulting in probably the best punch up of 2022. So far.

'Gasolina' by Daddy Yankee (w/ Joanna Hausmann)

Against all odds, Evan and Andrew punch up a song not in their mother tongue. Along the way, they discover that Daddy Yankee's reggaeton anthem 'Gasolina' may not be about road trips, discover that Daddy Yankee may not have actually been about to play for the Seattle Mariners when he was shot by a stray bullet, and discover it's not just English Majors who love to talk about horny metaphors.

'Because of You' by Kelly Clarkson (w/ Akilah Hughes)
5140

Because a butterfly flapped its wings in Kamchatka, global wind patterns shifted, causing the accursed demon Simon Cowell to arise, which backfired for the agents of hell when his reign led to the ascent of the verified seraphim Kelly Clarkson, because of which we now have the song "Because Of You." Evan and Andrew are joined by old friend Akilah Hughes to unpack the many causal relationships in this tragic tune.

'Hotel California' by Eagles Pt1 (w/ Miel's Dad)
3438

Eagles AND the return of Miel's Dad Jim? A TWO part episode of a very much one episode podcast?! No DEMI!? Recorded...on the ISLAND????? WHAT is HAPPENING?! A lot, explained in episode but in a nutshell: there's a two-week gap between end of frontloaded studio episodes and the last two live episodes together. Miel will be continuing the podcast (!!!) and there will be tweaks to the show after Demi's departure, not reflected in this interim two-parter.

So if you like an informative episode, the warm smell of colitas, and the entire history of EAGLES (no the???) straight from a former industry hot shot, enjoy!

'Kiss From a Rose' by Seal (w/ Travis McElroy)
5525

We punched up the TRUE national anthem with Travis McElroy (@travismcelroy - My Brother, My Brother and Me, The Adventure Zone podcasts). Is it drugs? Is it love? Are they the same thing? Seal will never explain his 1994 hit "Kiss From A Rose" and personally??? I respect that.

Video of the punch-up available on Youtube!

Plus, an important announcement from Demi.

UNPUNCHABLE JAMS: "Locomotive Breath" by Jethro Tull, "Don't Give Up" by The Whitest Boy Alive, "Black Rainbow" by St. Vincent, "Tiger Teeth" by Walk the Moon, "Stolen Moments" by Cautious Clay, "Ghosts" by Gary Jules.

ALSO, I FACT-CHECKED MYSELF on the "key changes" we reference throughout the episode and found this incredibly insightful comment from reddit user "willylumplumps"

"It looks like his main device in "Kiss From a Rose" is to blend the keys of G mixolydian (key of C) and Gminor.

So for example, the intro is Gmin, F, G. This has a mysterious sound because the first two chords sort of establish the key as Gmin or Bb while the G major sort of surprises us and snaps us back to key of C.

The verses and choruses are G mixolydian which is really just the key of C starting on the 5 chord. He's starts using the borrowed chord flat 3 (Eb).

One last sneaky thing he does is that he never goes to the tonic until the bridge which gives the bridge a really triumphant quality because our brains and ears haven't heard home until this point. And then he drops a freakin' flat 6 chord on us just because he can"
