Roach Koach celebrates a personal sesquicentennial this week with Slipknot and their album Vol. 3: The Subliminal Verses.

Episode 129: Strait Up

Roach Koach concludes Compilation Month with Strait Up, a record that unites a large number of nu-metal legends for one cause, to pay tribute to the late Snot frontman, Lynn Strait. Before Jenny, Lorin, and Matt get to that they have to talk about Who’s In The Studio and Who’s Tweeting(4:30)! We have Disturbed feedback, and we talk about who would win a fight, the Five Finger Death Punch guy or The Guy. Then it’s time to discuss Strait Up (17:45) and how it shows nu-metal artists dealing with grief, tugs at your nu-metal heart strings, and even activates the pit! Does it deserve a spot in the Nu-Metal Canon? Listen and find out!
