In this episode, Tyler and John discuss how artists are gaming the Billboard charts in the lamest way possible to boost rankings. They express frustration with these strategies and question the credibility of chart achievements, particularly regarding the dominance of certain artists like Sum 41, blink-182, Drake, and Taylor Swift. This conversation leads to a discussion about today's potential influence of payola and streaming manipulation. The boys then shift their focus to Spotify rolling out music videos to its platform and whether or not it should be seen as a threat to YouTube. Finally, they round out the episode by discussing one iconic artist's unenthusiastic decision to return to Spotify.
