With former Sex Pistols front man Johnny Rotten at the helm, you’d think P.I.L.’s 1979 release Metal Box would be a slam dunk for anti-establishment types the world over, but that is not the case for punk rock-loving comedian Kyle Kinane.   For guest playlists, new music influenced by this album, and full show notes, go to The500podcast.com.   Join the movement.
In the Premiere episode of The 500 as a Spotify Original, Comedy icon Bobby Lee runs wild with R.E.M.’s 1987 album Document revealing the hilarious highs and lows of his life and career as well as his passion for alternative music at the 2019 Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal.        For guest playlists, new music influenced by this album, and full show notes, go to The500podcast.com.  Join the movement.
The 500 with Josh Adam Meyers counts down Rolling Stone Magazine’s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time with comedians, actors, and musicians, using facts from the albums and song meanings as a road map to interview each guest. Previous guests include Bill Burr, Jim Jefferies, Wanda Sykes, Kevin Nealon, and Bert Kreischer, all sitting down with Josh to talk about the album and life.
There’s a time for happy songs, sunshine and general good cheer. And then there comes a time when it’s best to sit and stare pensively out a dirty window at bleak, rain-soaked landscapes and ponder the meaning of human existence in an uncaring universe. Krystina Hutchinson has had plenty of both; enough to know that sometimes it feels good to feel bad. After all, unrelenting self-reflection and brutal honesty are hallmarks of her stand-up, as well as the key ingredients in making her podcast, Guys We Fucked, one of the most successful and widely respected of all time. And what better theme music is there to those moments of dark ruminations on love and misery than the soulless soul music of Echo and the Bunnymen’s 1981 sophomore release Heaven Up Here?   The 500 is a production of Native Creative Podcasts.   For show notes, guest playlists, and fan blogs about the music go to The500Podcast.com.   New Artist/Song influenced by Echo & The Bunnymen:  ‘Medio Litro’ by Cosmonauts (Listen on Spotify)   Join.

Some artists speak for a generation. Some albums perfectly encapsulate a moment in time that, while perfect in that context, may seem out of place in any other time. English heavy metal icons Def Leppard’s contributions to the pantheon of rock are undeniable. But along the road to glorious immortality, there can often be a few questionable deviations. Without those somewhat dubious digressions, though, there would no opportunities for master comedians like Big Jay Oakerson and Randy & Jason Sklar to hilariously unpack the mullet-sporting, ripped jeans-wearing cheese of the 1987 album Hysteria, as they did for the first ever live episode at the 2019 Moontower Comedy Festival in Austin, Texas.     The 500 is a production of Native Creative Podcasts.   For show notes, guest playlists, and fan blogs about the music go to The500Podcast.com.   New Artist/Song influenced by Def Leppard:  ‘Panic Attack’ by The Glorious Sons (Spotify) (YouTube)   Join.

There’s a reason they call romantics hopeless, and it’s because while love can raise you up to dizzying heights of euphoria, it’ll also send you slamming into the ground with the speed of freight train and zero explanation. There aren’t many people in the world who know this better than comedian Tony Sam, host of the podcast Legally Insane and ‘Food: Fact or Fiction?’ on the Cooking Channel. He’s had his heart ripped out more than a few times, enough so to know he isn’t always free from blame when things go bad. But through it all, the lo-fi indie pop of the Magnetic Fields has helped him find some understanding through the curious chaos of intimacy, with their incredible 1999 three-volume release 69 Love Songs acting as something of a guidebook.   The 500 is a production of Native Creative Podcasts.   For show notes, guest playlists, and fan blogs about the music go to The500Podcast.com.   New Artist/Song influenced by Magnetic Fields:  ‘Dog Inside a Car’ by Fell Runner (Spotify) (YouTube)   Join.

Music can remind us of many things: a time in our lives we were happy or a place we never wanted to leave, a fleeting moment we can't return to a lover we can't forget. For comedian Kelsey Cook, few bands held such an important space in her head and heart as Coldplay, who came into their own just as she was navigating the fraught path towards womanhood. The post-Britpop of those gentle piano rockers' 2002 sophomore album A Rush of Blood to the Head provided Kelsey with no small amount of comfort as she maneuvered through turbulent relationships and the uncertainty of adult life, ultimately bringing her to the success of appearing on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Comedy Central's This is Not Happening, and the launch of her own podcast, Self-Helpless.     The 500 is a production of Native Creative Podcasts.   For show notes, guest playlists, and fan blogs about the music go to The500Podcast.com.   New Artist/Song influenced by Coldplay:  Luke Sital-Singh "Lover" (Spotify) (YouTube)   Join.

Little Steven hated the idea. One of the most raw albums Bruce Springsteen ever produced sets the scene for actor and comedian Jay Mohr to bare his soul discussing his own roller coaster ride following his heart to the bottom and back up again. The roots between these two prolific entertainers intertwine at a much deeper level than merely their shared home state of New Jersey. Saved by the Bell, the Boss takes a faint break from blue collar dreams to tell the story of straddling the fence in a relationship that shouldn't be saved despite pure poetry in the 1987 album Tunnel of Love.   The 500 is a production of Native Creative Podcasts.   For show notes, guest playlists, and fan blogs about the music go to The500Podcast.com.   New Artist/Song influenced by Bruce Springsteen:  Gaslight Anthem "National Anthem" (Spotify) (YouTube)   Join.
