** Lots of the criticism of Walker's "Wall" review said he came off as ignorant of Film/TheWall, its history, and the meaning behind its lyrics. Crash took the opposite viewpoint; Doug Walker understood album and film just fine, he just tried to bend its symbolism and visuals to ''his'' ends. And ''that'' is what really offended Crash.

* Crash's ''big'' TheReasonYouSuckSpeech on his Number One spot for the Worst Albums of 2019: ''[[WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic Nostalgia Critic's]] [[Music/TheWall The Wall]]''. He rips apart how insulting, disregarding, and a big middle finger the album is to the source material, points out how the review and album were just Doug ''intentionally'' missing the point of it simply because it hits more closer to him, along with it being more of a platform for Doug to air out his grievances about the Channel Awesome drama. The fact that Crash labels it as [[BrokeTheRatingScale 0/5]] (his ''first'' zero in his channel) adds more air to it.

* The entire final TheReasonYouSuckSpeech towards Pitchfork after reading their infamously loathed and despised negative review of ''[[Music/{{tool}} Lateralus]]'' and calling out the site for how much they alienate their audience with entitled and HolierThanThou attitude towards the bands they hate and how they [[TakeThatAudience insult their audience]], and ''especially'' when calling out reoccurring reviewer Brent Dicrescenzo's [[CriticalResearchFailure lack of research]] in his reviews and his borderline [[CausticCritic bitter and apathetic attitude]] towards '''anything''' and his [[{{Padding}} pretentious writing]] when he ''could get to the damn point of the fucking review!''

* His blunt and to the point rant about why he hates King 810's second album and his ''refusal'' to even play their music during his ''BEST/WORST ALBUMS OF 2016'' list, in such visceral and callous tone, he makes it clear he ''hates'' not just the album, but the band, especially how David Gunn simply wants to be known for his JerkAss antics than the music itself.

* In his review of [[Music/RedHotChiliPeppers One Hot Minute]], he namechecks the track "Shallow Be Thy Game" as one of his favorites on the album, and when he goes into why that is, he gives a scathing, no-holds-barred verbal smackdown to the Evangelical Christian church and the "born into sin" platitude. It is both deeply cathartic and deeply moving.
