1. A phrase used to describe the release of an inferior new album by a popular or critically acclaimed musical act, the belief being that said band is so popular they could "fart in a microphone", release it, and sell a million copies.

2. A release by an artist whose popularity has eclipsed the music's quality.
U2 have some pretty awesome albums, but their last one was like a fart in a microphone - people just buying them because it says "U2" on the cover.
