Episode 7: Friends of the Dead

This week, the Badland Girls talk (and sing) about all things music! In addition to keeping up the not-so-long tradition of sparking unresolved nerd fights and giggling, they also get goofy over their favorite film/TV scores and nerd out on garage rock and yeye. Number of "fucks" in this episode: 22.

Corrections: Destiny was wrong about the Olsen Twins. They are 5 months younger than she is. She was also wrong about the name of Mariska Veres' band. They were called Shocking Blue, not Deep Blue. I know you're upset, so here is their version of "Love Buzz." We're also sorry that Rhea accidentally calls David Carradine by the wrong first name. We blame Quentin Tarantino.
