Part 3 of my conversation with guest Brian Salvatore as we wrap up the CompCon Awards. I've also got the Bonehead of the Week and music from Magnolia Electric Co., Dinosaur Jr., Kurt Vile and Dump.

Show notes:

- Recorded via Skype

- Worst Album by Best Band

- Mid-'90s Van Halen was really bad

- George Harrison had some questionable releases in early '80s

- The Clash's Cut the Crap was like a parody of the band

- Best Album by Worst Band

- The Strokes: One-hit-album wonder?

- Jay: Give the band Live credit for somehow having a career

- Best Non-Guitar Solo

- Jay: Looked at instruments other than drums

- Plenty of great bass solos over the years

- Best Live Album

- Stones played faster on Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out

- J. Geils Band were an amazing live act

- Sore Thumb Award for song that doesn't fit on album it's on

- What's the deal with skits on hip-hop albums?

- Best Moustache in Rock

- Jeff "Skunk" Baxter had a classic 'stache

- Zappa was defined by his 'stache

- Bonehead of the Week

Music:
Magnolia Electric Co. - The Dark Don't Hide It

Dinosaur Jr. - Entertainment

Kurt Vile - Never Run Away

Dump - Superpowerless
