Also In This Episode

The Chris Brake Show theme song is in the pocket with the new snare drum! John’s dad helps the Bone Fags with their drum set, Dave Grohl kicks a dude out of a concert, and Chris goes to the Indiana State Fair to hear the Rev. Peyton’s Big Damn Band play but some guy ruins the whole thing by being obnoxious. We also talk about telling people to shut up: gangster style.
Then the 40 Oz Pimp calls in and gets to talk with James Hetfield from Metallica, then proceeds to threaten to sue us. And the guy across the street from 40 gets really angry and yells at 40. Finally, 40’s manager Zach weighs in on the situation with the guy across the street, to tell us what’s really going on over there.
