Debate the Most Popular Music Feuds of Our Time With iHeartRadio’s New Music Podcast “Rivals”!
The Beatles versus The Rolling Stones, The Notorious B.I.G. versus Tupac, Kanye West versus Taylor Swift — in each of these battles, who would you choose? What does that say about you? And, as a society, why do we love to endlessly debate these feuds? iHeartRadio’s new music podcast “Rivals” aims to answer these questions. Each episode of the show dives deeper into a particular pairing, drawing connections to the larger forces surrounding each.
For most people, music opinions can spark passionate arguments, but this is especially true for the hosts of the podcast, Steven Hyden and Jordan Runtaugh. Both are music journalists and critics, and they’re obsessed with examining the biggest and most obscure rivalries in music history. Each week on “Rivals,” they’ll break down the details of a different colorful beef and attempt to figure out why many of our favorite pop, hip-hop and rock superstars can’t seem to get along.
Listen to Hyden and Runtaugh’s analysis of the rivalry between Jimi Hendrix versus Eric Clapton and what it says about burning out or fading away. Then get the story behind the bad blood between Taylor Swift and Katy Perry that lasted for most of the 2010s or learn more about the Miley Cyrus versus Sinead O’Connor debate and how it relates to the perennial battle between old and young.
