TSOM01: Taggin’ Up With the Hulkster


For this episode, the crew takes three selections from Hulk Hogan’s 1995 release Hulk Rules and subjects themselves to the atrocity of this record. They are joined by Clint Carroll, who is sickeningly well-versed on the record as well as other albums recorded by wrestling stars. He is an old friend of TSOM’s Jeff. He met him searching for a CD at a music store back in 2001.



Show notes:

Voices: J. Wyrick, S. Bennett, C. Allred, B. Collier and special guest Clint Carroll (from somewhere in East Texas)


Clint Carroll with the disturbing admission he owns two copies of this record.

Recorded the evening of 6/11 in a hot garage where a dog has defecated in the corner and a hornet was swarming overhead, making for an uncomfortable start to our taping.

Intro music contains elements of M.Barnacle’s “Erase That” (used with permission), contains elements of some old video of Mean Gene, the Fat Boys, Kid Koala, Johnny Adams, Biggie Smalls coughing up something nasty, Larry and Tommy. Arranged by TSOM’s Jeff.
