Loud and Sad Radio: Episode Two is here to take you on a road of reminiscing! A hell of an episode. Here is what you missed:
In the past weeks, we introduced you to the magic that is Loud and Sad Radio with the debut episode with heartthrob host Pete Wentz. Now we’re back with another episode filled with killer content. If you missed it, shame on you! But as always, we’re here to save the day and give you an overview of what went down on this week’s episode.
Starting naturally with a delightful dad joke, we almost have to question our love for Pete Wentz. But in the end, do we still stan? We yabba dabba do.
Pete and co-host/friend Elliot continue on the dad theme, talking about their journey of fatherhood. Wentz dialing in on dad duty of delivering his second child. Shit gets slippery. Providing a perfect opportunity for a pause and play, giving us our first track of the show, an unforgettable throwback by Bright Eyes.

The episode escalates effortlessly into the discussion on Batman and Ben Affleck’s role. Wentz makes a good point, deeming him perfect for the part as he has an unforgettable ‘superhero chin’. And, like, he’s totally right.
While this track might seem random to outsiders, Wentz explains that this lovely little melody was used for the Zach Snyder Justice League trailer. Unfortunately, Zach Snyder had to drop out due to his daughter’s passing, and the song was the one used in her memorial service. Talk about a passionate pairing. We’re going to go cry now.
Leonard Cohen – ‘Hallelujah’

Kicking it in Kyoto, the pair can’t talk about the place without following it by the soundscape that is Phoebe Bridgers. Not only does this song absolutely smash, but it ties into the current artistry. We wonder if Bridgers is a FOB fan?!

Focusing on FOMO, emo Kanye, and Wizard of Oz vs. High School Musical, this show really does provide a representation of randomness. The playlist is perfect as it provides both nostalgia and present-day tunes. But this one? Nostalgia to the core.
Fall Out Boy – ‘Sugar, We’re Goin Down’
