22. Stan Grows Up – and Realizes New Music Literally Sounds Like Shit (Season 15, Episode 7)

In what's widely considered one of the creators' most personal episodes, South Park experiences a new form of popular music for kids called Tween Wave that literally sounds like someone shitting to Stan. Some 15 seasons into their cultural phenomenon, here's Parker and Stone directly addressing the fact that they're getting older, and what's popular now doesn't quite work for them – though to be fair, Bob Dylan and the Police sound just as "shitty" to kids as Tween Wave does to Stan and the adults. The episode then delivers an emotional haymaker: a montage involving the aftermath of a wrecked marriage and the passage of time, set to Fleetwood Mac's "Landslide." It's also just a great excuse for more farting noises per minute than you can possibly imagine. BT
