"I don't make these videos because I hate pop music, I do it because I LOVE pop music."

Todd Nathanson is a YouTube-based reviewer and member to Channel Awesome, who focuses his snarking on pop music. Combines legitimate complaints with humorous observations and Shout Outs. Also, he always obscures his face in his videos.

Todd has 4 different shows:

  • Todd's Pop Song Reviews, where he reviews modern pop songs for how bad (and sometimes good) they are that makes him ask how they even became popular in the first place.
  • One Hit Wonderland: invokeda look at the careers of One-Hit Wonder artists, their one hit song and analyzes whether or not they had more musical talent than their one hit would imply.
  • Cinemadonna: a review series of the entire filmography of Madonna.
  • Trainwreckords: analyzing Career Killer albums that removed well-known, successful artists from the popular spotlight.

Once a frequent "Special Guest" on Pushing Up Roses' "Let's Play Shorties". Todd also regularly appeared on Roses' Let's Plays of Edutainment PC games from the early 90s. He also had frequent cameo roles and co-writing credits on The Nostalgia Chick's early videos.
