Very interesting. Thoroughly researched and cleverly presented. Sometimes I wonder where hard facts end and educated conjecture begins but, it's all in fun so I just enjoy.

The Ramones (Mini Episode): TV Bombs, Psycho Therapy, Toilet Syringes, Turning Tricks and Saving Rock ‘N’ Roll
00:02:02

Sniffing glue, hooking for drug money, hurling rocks at the Beatles, and writing infectious sunshiney melodies about their grimy reality, the Ramones were what the world needed in 1976. As rock ‘n’ roll was getting bloated with excessive experimentation and unfortunate forays into disco, four cretins from Queens stripped it all away to two-minute three-chord anthems with hard, fast backbeats and buzzing guitars. They adopted the same surname to solidify their brotherhood, and they lived like brothers and fought like brothers to the very bitter end. Listen to hear how the Ramones saved rock ‘n’ roll. This is a mini episode of Disgraceland. To listen to the full episode as well as all archived episodes of Disgraceland, episodes on The Rolling Stones, Cardi B. Ozzy Osbourne, Prince and others follow @disgracelandpod on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.

No musical artist better personified the hedonism of the ’70s than David Bowie. He captivated the imaginations of music fans all over the world with a dizzying array of creative alter egos; Major Tom, Ziggy Stardust and the Thin White Duke among them, and his obsession with occultist Aleister Crowley drove him down a dark, excessive hole filled with cocaine, orgies, arrests, fascism, death and madness that very nearly destroyed him. This is a mini episode of Disgraceland. To listen to the full episode as well as all archived episodes of Disgraceland, episodes on The Rolling Stones, Cardi B. Ozzy Osbourne, Prince and others follow @disgracelandpod on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.

Tupac Shakur Pt. 1: 1960s Radicalism Gives Way to Socially Conscious Rap, a Charismatic Screen Star, and Deadly Violence
00:32:41

Tupac Shakur was many things. He was a supremely talented MC and was wildly charismatic in front of the camera. He was also violent, angry and completely unable to keep himself out of trouble. Part one of his story traces his rise through the radical influence of his Black Panther lineage, the deadly violence that seemed to follow him wherever he went and the inevitably of both prison and superstardom.
