Episode 23: Dirty White Boy / Nothin’ But a Good Time

It’s time for some songs about guys being dudes as Vintown and Sammerz cover two of the greatest songs of all time: “Dirty White Boy” by Foreigner and “Nothin’ But a Good Time” by Poison!

We start off with “Dirty White Boy”. Did you know this song is called “Dirty White Boy”? Seriously, how did that happen? We get into some song meanings (more like wrong meanings), the album cover that made the Bible Belt mad, something called “crypto-racism”, and more.

The YouTube comments for this one features a sweet old lady named Peggy who really loves this song. Also, a baby named after cocaine? Only in the YouTube comments!

The show then makes its way to Poison’s 1988 classic, “Nothin’ But a Good Time” and talk about the song’s working class roots, Poison vs. Motley Crue, the classic music video, hockey, and Yogi Bear. (No picnic baskets were harmed in the making of this section.)

You want comments? We got comments! Lots of drug talk, annoying wives, a guy talking management’s side in a Poison video, and the dastardly Kirk Cobain is to blame for all of it.

Dudes rock and so does this episode.
