Seconded. I've followed his career for years so to hear him on the podcast was just amazing. Damn that little ciggy smoking boy video and the hurt it caused!!

Synthosizer in the bathtub
CBB made me a fan of Manchester Orchestra. They’ve been my fav so far
That really was a great performance
Their live version of bed head from the most recent tour is, as Scott says, the definitive version. So damn good.
As a longtime fan of both MO and CBB, my brain imploded when I saw they were guests the first time they were on! I was also relieved that the guys were fun and funny, it’s always awkward when the non-comedy guests can’t keep up.
The have their own patreon podcast that is genuinely hilarious! I’m only a week removed from seeing them two nights in a row so I’m going through withdrawals.
Love their music and how much they get involved too!
Colin Hay at Garry and Gilly's wedding
I love that rendition is Next Year People! It has become one of my favorite songs, and that version has Scott, Gilly, and PFT on it which makes it even better.
My all time favourite episode
Another call-in performance, like when Colin Hanks stopped by.
St Vincent, just for her reaction to Harris' small plate irish jamaican restaurant.
I believe there was also a hand gesture mentioned with the “oooOH.”
I once fell asleep to this episode when I was ill and woke up during her performance of Surgeon and thought I was having some type of mystical experience. Was so confused about what was going on
Tapas the Morning to Jah!
Bless Nick Wiger.
Silversun Pickups are great podcast guests. I only know a few of their songs, but after hearing them on CBB I sought them out on a few other podcasts. Brian Aubert is hilarious and really enthusiastic on Who Charted and James Bonding.
Dan Mangan IMO
I’m also a Dan Mangan stan
His first live appearance is incredible, audience hanging on every phrase, gives me chills
CHVRCHES was an all time great for me. I loved their stripped down versions of their songs. Silversun Pickups was also awesome.
Yeah!! CBB got me into CHVRCHES for the first time
I like the songs American Football did on CBB, but honestly I usually skip through the music on the podcast. It's really not what I want to hear when I'm listening to CBB. The musical guests are usually pretty good, but it's just so different from the vibe of the rest of the show, I just want to get back into the comedy.
It’s always sad middle-class-black-rimmed-glasses music.
I’m partial to Mister Heavenly because they’re one of my all time favorite bands and engineer Brett played with them
Man Man is an all time favorite band of mine so Mister Heavenly was a fun surprise to hear on the podcast. Blew my mind that Brett was a part of the band then and part of Man Man now.
CBB also introduced me to Chvrches (I had heard the name but never listened), and they've become very frequent in my rotation. Also an amazing live show.
The National is probably my favorite band, so I'm biased towards saying them, but also they are very funny in general and I think personal friends with Scott (which, to be fair, most musical guests seem to be) which makes them feel like a good fit for the show.
Also there's a great bit on their most recent appearance where Scott reads a portion if a review of their new album where the author pretty hilariously uses a ton of flowery adjectives to try to describe the album and when it's over Scott says, "So the question I want to ask you all is - Is it impossible to write about music?" I think about that a lot when people try to describe music to me.
Don't Stop or We'll Die once did an episode that made me laugh so hard it reminded me of how Paul Rust loves chemicals so much he's like a regular Walter White over here.
For me it's actually Townland. I've listened to their album a bunch after the played on the show
Tears for Fears was great and definitely gave me a new appreciation for those guys as musicians.
American Football, Diane Coffee
American Football, Manchester Orchestra - Wajatta was also amazing!
Loudon Wainwright was great! Funny guy and awesome songs.
Surely you mean Loudon Wainwright the THIRD
(Good idea for a threedom guest)
Where's the Loud On Loudon podcast?
I hate most of the music on the podcast to be completely honest, but the Electrical Guest first appearance I think is my favorite of all time. Also, I know it isn't CBB, but the Dan Deacon episode of Improv4Humans is goated.
Sooo… this isn’t a thread where we rank all the times Scott has done the Don Pardo voice from best to worst??
MK Breeze or MS Lickley.
I do not share Scott’s taste in music.
I really enjoyed the CHVRCHES episode, and Manchester Orchestra is also great.
Keep wanting to say Ted Leo but I think that was I4H.
He was definitely on cbb too.
One of the earlier live shows, it's good
Was he on Spontaneanation at one point or was it only Aimee Mann (not a hidden swipe at her or anything)?
He was! Life Drawing Class. The CBB ep I must have been thinking of is from 2010, Rock n Roll Dreams.
The CBB versions of Oh fortune (Dan mangan) and Gin Atomic (Townland) are remarkable and worthy of being on any playlist
The Christmas episode (maybe 2014?) with Aimee Mann and Ted Leo is great and one of my favorite episodes with great tunes
I loved electric guest
Honestly became a fan of two because of the show. Electric guest and yacht
I'd never heard of "Stars" (from Toronto) before hearing them on I wanna say 341? "Banging on the table with stars"... As with a lot of the M*E*USE-IKLE guests, l liked their live version of "elevator love letter" better than the studio version I eventually tracked down!
Unknown Mortal Orchestra! I honestly don't remember the appearance, I'm just a huge fan of his band.
Love when Wajatta(Reggie Watts and John Tejada) are on!
I agree that the American Football episode was my favorite musical guest. Silversun Pickups are prob my favorite musical guests in terms of podcast participation though.
I really loved Colin Hay’s appearance. I was never really a men at work fan and didn’t even know he did solo work but he was so so good.
(Also American football was wonderful)
I know- I like his stripped down versions of all the songs he did live, better than the ones on his album he was there to plug!
I was already a fan of The National and CHVRCHES so I feel like I’d be biased choosing either of them, so I’m going to go with Silversun Pickups. It might be recency bias though, but they were just really good guests too.
The first time I heard MKB was the hardest I've laughed at anything in my entire life👍 love that first Dan Mangan appearance tho too
