Good episode? Give it some love!
The Banana Boyz revisit one of Joe's favorites, Dillinger Four - a pop-punk band comprised of four beer-swilling, bartending, butt cracking dudes from Minneapolis, Minnesota, and compare their underground success as a "bands' band" to punk rock super stars Green Day! It's really a jumping-off point for a discussion about DIY Punk scenes in North America, the roots of pop punk, and why Joe just loves D4 so damn much!
