There are several common misconceptions about rock n roll. Back in the 80's and 90's it was an accepted fact that you had to have long hair in order to be a rock star. Before Living Colour came around it was assumed (by non-Fishbone fans) that you had to be white to rock. Another given was that for a song to truly rock it had to be led by a screaming electric guitar. This is again an example of an 'alternative fact'. The truth is there are a bunch of great, hard-rocking tunes that just happen to have an acoustic guitar as the backbone. Ben is joined by Aussie brother from another mother Maurice Bursztynski to dispel the myth that you need electricity to rock. Tossing aside any longhaired ballad you might think of, Ben and Maurice go for the muscle and power of an acoustic guitar and count down some truly great rockers.

Maurice is the illustrious host of 2 awesome podcasts - Love That Album and See Hear. Find them at the following links:

Before the 1990's there was a period in popular music where there was no irony in a lyric like the following:

Tender love is blind
It requires a dedication
All this love we feel
Needs no conversation

It's a time long-forgotten by today's music. Back in the day you could be as unabashedly cheesy as you wanted to be and if the song had a catchy melody and a hook, you had a hit. Comedian, tv writer, producer and all-around swell fella Frank Nicotero still lives in this unpretentious world and makes no apologies for it. Frank returns for his second podcast with a topic that could very easily produce a playlist of the cheesiest songs to ever be assembled on All Time Top Ten, and we couldn't be more thrilled with the results. Brace yourself and get lost in the cheese as we present Top Ten Classic Duets, which for our purposes is anything pre-1990. Irony and coolness can take a holiday.

William Shakespeare's plays and sonnets are a part of our everyday lives, whether we know it or not. "All's well that ends well", "good riddance", "heart of gold", 400 years later people all over the world still quote the Bard. His influence has also seeped into our music, and some of our favorite songs in rock and pop are directly or indirectly inspired by Shakespeare. Pal-of-the-podcast and former Shakespearian actor Summer Blake has appeared in several of The Bard's plays, including the enigmatic role of Juliet. She joins the podcast for her first solo episode minus her husband Ryan Blake, who still might be lurking about with a word or two. Ben and Summer count down the best songs that were inspired by Shakespeare with a few seldom heard surprises. The game is afoot!

In a unique twist on the regularly scheduled format, All Time Top Ten has decided to loan out the show to a couple of thieves and rascals from the mean streets of Hollywood to turn a topic on its ear. All Day Sucker's Morty Coyle and Jordan Summers have been best friends for decades. Their friendship is only matched by the urge to roast the crap out of each other, and where better to do that than at each other's funerals? Ben hangs back and moderates while Morty and Jordan take lovable swipes at each other, roast-style, and curate the music to be played at each other's funerals. If you don't know them going in, you'll feel like you do by the end. Hilarious stories of misadventures can't mask the fact that these two inseparable chums have a great deal of love and respect for each other. The feelings aren't necessarily said, but more brought out by the music they picked in this ridiculous roast battle.

Quick note: at one point we bring up the late great Gary Shapiro and have some fun with him. It should be said that it's pure coincidence and this episode was taped about 10 days before his passing.

All Day Sucker is hard at work on another album. Hear some past tunes and keep up with the latest from the lads at http://www.alldaysucker.net

Anyone who's ever read a book or seen a documentary on what goes on behind the scenes in the world of rock and pop music will not be the least bit shocked to learn that the music business is chock full of big ripe juicy assholes. And the assholes themselves would be the first to admit it, which is the ultimate asshole move. From the artists themselves to managers, producers and more, the lowest of the low sometimes can make the highest of art. For those of us who love music unconditionally, we must accept the fact that sometimes our heroes are less than stellar human beings and there's documented evidence to prove it. Ben is excited to welcome the least asshole-ish person in the LA music scene, musical savant and truly one of the hardest working dudes and nicest guys in town, Fernando Perdomo to count down the best of the worst. Tales of frighteningly shitty behavior are punctuated by the most brilliant music ever made. Hot fries in your face if you don't like it!

In pretty much every waking moment, Fernando Perdomo is either producing, tracking, mixing, writing, or performing live somewhere on this planet. Find out what he's up to and hear some killer tunes made at Reseda Ranch Studios by heading here:

Happy Earth Day to everybody spinning around on this big blue marble, taking its yearly trip around the sun. This hunk of rock hurling through space is a pretty amazing home, and it sounds like a well-worn cliche but it truly is the only home we have. It's hard to believe that many folks take it for granted and don't appreciate this place for all it gives us. Nearly 50 years ago, Earth Day was founded as a reminder that the oceans are not our toilets, the forests are not ours to ravage and leave for dead and the sky is not the world's ashtray. As long as these reminders are needed, activists and artists will keep pushing for more awareness, conservation, and just basic human decency when it comes to our very fragile planet. Fellow tree hugger Chris Wolffing joins via Skype to play some of the best songs that need to be played to keep us aware and appreciative of this beautiful home we all share.

We here at ATTT are always open to ideas. Not in a creepy romantic way, but with format tinkering. Sometimes a topic lends itself to cover the entire spectrum, which means we're going to need to take the good and take the bad. There have been 24 official James Bond films, going all the way back to 1962's Dr. No. 24 films, 24 theme songs and this feels like a good opportunity for some format tinkering. Thankfully we happen to know 2 of the biggest Bond fans on Earth, and they just happen to be super opinionated about movies and music. So... here's the first installment of "Worst To First", in which the neighborly good-natured style of Gabe Scalone meets the cranky get-off-my-lawn attitude of Matt Dinan, and the 3 of us play EVERY James Bond Theme, and present them from the least to the greatest, chosen in real time. It's a little experimental so bear with us, but we think it makes for good listening. Let's get Bondy.

The bass player may be the loser of the band, according to 'hilarious' memes and t-shirts, but we know the truth. A tastefully crafted and skillfully played bass line can turn an ordinary song into sonic gold. It's hard to believe that ATTT has gone 260 episodes before tackling this all-too-important subject. They're real, and they're spectacular, and you better listen on good headphones or speakers or you'll be sorry. The always affable Dustin Prince is back to help us count down the first of many volumes of ridiculous, sick, and unbelievably tasty bass lines. Get out your air bass, you're gonna need it.

Huzzah and hurrah to all the music supervisors in Hollywood who have the enviable task of expertly marrying music and moving pictures to create memorable moments in film and television. Many of our fave TV shows from the past and present rely on well-placed music cues to enhance a scene and bring out all the feels. ATTT takes a good hard listen to the songs that made good TV great TV by simply existing in a scene and subsequently becoming big hits due to their appearance on TV. Special guest Jeff Axelrod spent many years working behind the scenes in television and joins Ben in celebrating the almighty music supervisor with this ridiculously-named episode. Turn off the idiot box for a minute and listen up!

Let's face it, the thought of a higher power that created everything in the universe and oversees it's entire creation is fascinating, comforting and also terrifying. Man's place in the cosmos and here on Earth is always up for discussion and maybe the occasional holy war, and the central theme of God is always in the back of every sentient being's psyche, whether they believe or not. What we need is a guide to our feelings, thoughts and the ways of the world. Enter Gary Shapiro, cantor, rabbi, musician, comedian, mensch. Gary has been kind enough to help Ben and All Time Top Ten cleanse their souls and be lifted higher, by counting down the greatest (non-religious) songs about God. God the motif, God the concept, God the omnipotent and omnipresent, God the way to a higher plane of existence. It's all there for your approval or derision. And of course the music is amazing.

Gary can be found performing his subversive brand of musical comedy all over Los Angeles. Find out more and get a light chuckle several times a week by following him on Twitter:
