Episode 44: Funny Music

Usually, Brent and Rob share what they think is really good music.  In this episode, however, good music isn't necessarily the goal.  This time, the focus is on music that sounds funny (though most of the tracks in this episode are very good nonetheless).  They also welcome two stand-up comedians as guest commentators, Jacob Sirof and Kevin Shea, to help flesh out the funny theme.  Full track listing below.

NOTE: This was their second attempt at recording this episode, because the first time they recorded it, Jacob and Kevin's microphones didn't work.  The Legacy Music Hour believes the first recording was funnier, fresher, and overall more fun than this one, so even though you can't hear Jacob and Kevin very well, the talking parts from the original recording will be released in a couple days, so stay tuned for that.  In the meantime, check out this "second try" episode, which isn't as funny and fun, but, here it is anyway.

  1. This episode was an absolute disaster. Not only did these "comedians" not have the appreciation that Rob F and Brent have for awesome VG music, but they were also very obnoxious and not funny at all. Please never ever have these guys on your show again.

    1. This comment was more hilarious then the entire show!

      Thanks for a good chuckle.

      But you are right ;)

  2. Holy shit, you guys know Harmony Korine films?! He's my favorite writer/director. I'm very impressed!
