The P.O.D. Kast
Keep on rollin', baby. It's a monthly podcast where Bryan Quinby (Street Fight Radio) and John Cullen (Blocked Party) dissect a classic nu-metal album and wonder why they just can't give up thinking nu-metal is good. Probably because it really, really is.

It's a truly wild episode of the POD Kast this month, as Bryan talks about the first time he did acid...at the age of 12. It sets the tone for the entire episode, as we discuss Neighborhood Jesus, Mick Thomson's "sense of humor" and just how it became...

Episode 33: Hollywood Undead's "Notes From the ...
It's time for one of the most puzzling albums we've ever covered on this show, a pure nu-metal album that came out in the complete dead zone of 2013 from a bunch of guys who don't seem interested in anything other than trying to be famous. From a...

We don't think it's because of the album we were covering, but Bryan made it down to the Street Fight Studios just in time to vomit and then immediately record this episode. Bryan said that while he powered through, he doesn't remember most of the...

Episode 26: Rob Zombie's "Hellbilly Deluxe", or...
This album might not be exactly nu-metal, but it's the perfect fit for October as we discuss Rob Zombie's unique ability to invent his own genre that combines rockabilly, nu-metal, and good old-fashioned rock into something almost wholly unique (if...

It's an album that contains multitudes this month, as the storylines are aplenty around PM5K's breakthrough album. The lead singer is Rob Zombie's brother. He's obsessed with science fiction (or so he says). The album contains almost no emotion...

It's been almost two years since we covered a Korn album, and so the boys get down to business on what is likely the most important album in nu-metal history. It might have aged a bit weirder than you remember though, with some clear gimmick tracks...

One of the more surprising entries in the nu-metal canon if you knew nothing about the band other than what you heard on the radio, the album that features "Fly" is indeed a nu-metal album. We learn that Mark McGrath basically wanted to mimic Korn...
