We're doing a totally original and not-at-all-derivative thing! The Itch has decided that it's time for a listener-voted tournament to crown a winner of the prestigious "Future Episode Recipient" title. We've chosen 16 bands that got frequent airplay on our radio show but have yet to be discussed on the podcast. We're pitting them against each other this month to see who you love most, and we'll do an episode on the winner. It might be a discography ranking, a history lesson, or even an interview with a band member. Either way, it's all in your hands. You can vote on the first round directly at this survey link (bit.ly/itchmb1), or you can vote in our Twitter polls for each matchup (or both, if you're that kind of person). We'll announce the first round winners and the second round brackets next week. Thanks for participating, and happy March Bandness!

Within a single year, Taylor Momsen of The Pretty Reckless was faced with the deaths of both her rock hero and her musical muse. Her downward spiral and climb back from the brink led to Death By Rock and Roll, one of the first great albums of 2021. In this episode, The Itch explores the album, as well as the infamous "27 Club" and the classic rock influences that weave throughout. We also debut our new Flavor of the Week playlist.

We're back and we're mildly rebranded! While we put the finishing touches on everything from guest spots to new art, we're here to celebrate our Itchiversary with a mission statement, a few teases about what's to come, and a bit of bro love to top it all off.

Alright, so this conversation has virtually nothing to do with music. But since it's snowing everywhere and we're excited for our official return this coming Monday, we decided to share a little side conversation from our season premiere recording that was prompted by Dan asking about our favorite snow memories.

We're almost ready to return! In the meantime, here's one last revisit to one of our favorite episodes of last season: our conversation with Sean Dowdell of Grey Daze. Enjoy his stories about life with Chester Bennington of Linkin Park, and our newly recorded intro about Amends...Stripped, a collection of acoustic versions of Amends tracks using alternate takes of Chester Bennington's vocals.

Alright, so even after releasing the extended version of our Rock 'n' Rasslin' episode, KC and Aaron STILL had one more bit left over to share. If you can ignore the lower audio quality (that's the last time we experiment with a recording service called "Cleanfeed") and turn on your imagination, you'll discover the endless possibilities that could have been ... with The Greatest Wrestling Story Never Told.

When Dan went on vacation last year, KC and Aaron found the perfect topic to talk about while their Itch brother was gone: Rock 'n' Rasslin'. In fact, we enjoyed ourselves so much that we had to cut the episode down to keep it anywhere close to our standard length. So as a bonus for those who appreciate the show and appreciate wrestling, we're releasing the extended version of this episode as a primer for the Road to WrestleMania (and the Road to Revolution)! And as a bonus on top of a bonus, do yourself a favor and check out AEW music producer Mikey Rukus and his debut album, Bring the Rukus. Enjoy!

After months of garnering attention with his impressive and amusing consistency on Twitter, Max Collins and Eve 6 finally announced a release date for their new EP, Grim Value, and dropped Black Nova, their first new track in nearly a decade. And even though The Itch is still on break to plan for season 2, we couldn't resist getting together to talk about it. And our feelings on everything are... mixed. So enjoy this off-the-cuff, barely edited conversation about music and marketing (along with a detour for a tired and grumpy Dan to complain about Pointfest). Have we connected yet?

In case you missed it the first time or haven't listened to the full episode yet, this is the closing segment of our Black Rock Matters episode. We hope it serves to honor a few of the countless artists we love, as well as to introduce listeners to their music, which can be found on episode 10's playlist.

Episode 10 was one of our early favorites. We got to research, ponder, and present a History 101 overview of some of the many black artists who have played a role in the formation of rock music as we know it, as well as in the formation of The Itch itself. In celebration of Black History Month, we're revisiting it to celebrate this rich history. Enjoy!

It's time! Since institutions like Pitchfork, the Grammys, and the even the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame struggle to define, much less always honor rock, The Itch has taken it upon ourselves to nominate artists for prestigeless rock bragging rights and imaginary trophies.

In this Short Cut, The Itch corrects the context of a comment from episode 32 (which you should listen to immediately if you haven't yet). But despite the correction of our intention... we may accidentally end up insulting Shinedown anyway. Listen to find out, and then let's talk!
