Sit back and enjoy as the lead singer of The National, Matt Berninger melts your earholes with his baritone voice on today’s WHO CHARTED! Matt tells us how the song The National wrote for The Hunger Games almost didn’t make it for being to dark as he helps countdown Billboard’s Top 5 Alternative Songs Chart. He then shares a story involving Superman and The Lone Ranger during the Movie Chart. Later, Matt reveals what his tattoo says and the times he’s had to deal with drunks while performing as he answers your Twitter questions! Remember to pick up the Who Charted? Holiday Bundle and a pair of Kulap Vilay-SOCKS over at the Earwolf store!

Had to do a Moonraker-style pigeon double take when I saw who the guest was today. I'm a HUUUUUUUUUGE National fan! This is exciting!

Howard's face in the cover picture on the front page is amazing.

The false start on Rudolph the White Nosed Reindeer had me rolling.

Carmen Electra is from Cincinnati. And... um... Howard Taft?

As far as "lady National" bands go, The Jezabels come pretty close in my opinion:

Oh, and when he asks how the reindeer breathe underwater, Poseidon says they're just seas lions painted like reindeer. But sea lions also can't breathe underwater. I love all of this.

A fun episode everyone!
While I do not know The National's work that much, Matt was a fun and out of the box choice as guest for Whooch.

And what's up with Howard's face? Mid-stroke shot? Summah Withdrawl?

I really enjoyed this episode.

As a fan of The National, I would recommend to anyone even remotely interested should listen to their album High Violet. If you don't like it, you definitely won't like the rest of their work. They're pretty accessible, though. It's not like they're math rock.
