Pink Floyd's 1979 album The Wall was a theatrical progressive rock album based upon lead songwriter Roger Waters' own feelings of alienation, isolation, and mental anguish. It has gone on to be one of the highest selling records of all time, made major hits out of tracks like "Hey You" and "Another Brick In The Wall (Pt. 2)", and has been cited for helping define the concept album.
It's considered a very good album by a lot of people.
In 1982, the story behind The Wall was adapted into an experimental film directed by Alan Parker.
37 years later, The Nostalgia Critic's The Wall was released to YouTube. A parody of the feature film, it was written and performed by internet reviewer Doug Walker under his moniker The Nostalgia Critic, with internet musician Rob Scallon arranging and performing the backing tracks. It was presented as a love letter to both the album and its movie version, but was roundly criticized for being cynical, snide, and nasty in its humor, as well as failing to do the proper research necessary for clever satire.
It and its soundtrack are considered very bad by a lot of people.
On a new Jukebox Zeroes, for some reason Lilz and Patrick decided to listen to Nostalgia Critic's The Wall for themselves, with assistance from Jenna Sokalski of the Twitch series Weird Crushes, and the podcast Geeks vs Nerds.
It did not go so well.
