Episode 4: Punk Is Dead

At first blush, the Grateful Dead have nothing to do with punk and metal. Or do they? Ed and Casey look at the surprising ways the Dead connect to other musical movements on the underground and elsewhere. Have the walls separating punk, hardcore, metal and jam finally come down? We brought in two special guests to help us investigate. Jay Coyle is the founder of Music Geek Services and an instructor at Berklee Online. He talks about the Dead’s trailblazing direct-to-fan efforts and how DIY became the going rate in today’s music marketplace. Michael Brunetto is a self-professed “metal kid” and musician who shares his experiences as a longtime Deadhead who also loves the heavier stuff. Plus another Feed Your Head, this time featuring punk rock icon and Deadhead Henry Rollins.

ABOUT Dead To Me

A cross-cultural journey through the land of the Dead
Dead to Me is a podcast about the Grateful Dead in the same way that Friday Night Lights is a show about football. Hosts Casey Rae and Eduardo Nunes explore a profound array of cultural intersections and how the Dead’s legacy ripples through our contemporary reality in fascinating and often unexpected ways.

Produced in partnership with Chunky Glasses Media, Dead to Me is lovingly crafted to appeal to Heads and non-Heads alike. Through entertaining interviews and compelling segments—all tied to specific themes—Casey and Ed examine a range of social, cultural, political, spiritual and pharmacological phenomena alongside special guests who offer unique insights into the band and the American experience writ large.

Whether you’re a (tie) dyed-in-the-wool Head, or merely Dead-curious, Dead to Me is your venue for captivating conversations about music, culture, and so much more. It’s never too late to get on the bus.
