Meh

I tried to like this podcast but it is too unfocused on the music. Too many personal stories are shared. Too many bad and crude jokes. Preparation to discuss the artist is also quite lacking.

If you like long, rambling convos

...then you’d like this. The hosts don’t spend a whole lot of time talking/debating about the actual subject, so shorter episodes could help. A lot of laughing at their own jokes.

So much fun

Ty to Joel Kim Booster for recommending his defense of Maroon 5 & a great podcast! Tom & Tommy are so funny and good-hearted. They really strike a balance between being critical but in a supremely fair way. Not stuck up or snobby at all.

Laugh-Out-Loud Funny Piss-Freaks

Tom & Tommy are hilarious hosts. First and foremost, I think that's the best way to approach a podcast like this. They are great comics and that humor translates to the witty banter they share while they admit their guilty pleasures or shred a band to pieces.Aside from the laughs, this podcast has also taught me to really think harder about music and why people become attached to certain songs or certain bands. The research and news stories that swirl around the bands presented lends to the funny, but it also opens up a discussion about our society and why we shun or praise the things we do.Incredibly funny and insightful. LISTEN & SUBSCRIBE.

Self-indulgent, boring, and offensive

One host talks 95% of the time and can’t stop laughing at his own unfunny jokes. He also used both homophobic and ableist language within the first 30 minutes of the episode I listened to. Truly awful.

It's just a lot of fun

I'm a grad student and I just think this is one of the best podcasts to just smoke and unwind to. Always a good listen.

Funny And Fun

These guys are funny, and have funny guests. I especially enjoy that Jared fellow. I’ve been cherry picking episodes that I think will be especially funny or interesting, and avoiding ones that feature artists I consider indefensible. The somewhat unfocused style was confusing until I got a feel for who is who, but after listening for a while, it’s a bunch of fun.

Always makes me laugh

Stand by Your Band never fails to brighten my day. Tom and Tommy are both hilarious and have a great rhythm. The idea behind the podcast is very wholesome. And of course, I love that they portray p*ss heads in a positive light. This podcast has introduced me to great music: Vampire Weekend, They Might Be Giants, Charles Manson. The mark of good music or podcast is how easily one can attach it to good memories. Stand by Your Band is only associated with my best.
