E8 The Itch and Pony Show: Deftones and Evolving Beyond Nu Metal

E8 The Itch and Pony Show: Deftones and Evolving Beyond Nu Metal

This week, the guys celebrate the 20th anniversary of Deftones’ seminal album White Pony! Along the way they touch on:

  • How an awful thought can become a great song
  • How to use music to end an unwanted relationship
  • The benefits of bands sticking together
  • How to not be just nu metal
  • Haunted houses
  • Limp Bizkit?
  • Bands that do quality covers (and Dan's surprising choice for who does it best)

Plus, the guys name drop AIM and Napster, and Aaron (possibly) resists the urge to be totally annoying!
