First seen in [[death metal]], '''Brainkrieg''' is a death metal band in [[Strong Bad]]'s imagination that seems to use all of the wrong "d-e" words in their song (dentist, deli-style, [[Wikipedia:De La Soul|De La Soul]]). They also frequently use the phrase "Jugga jigga wugga". They have a large, poorly drawn audience watching their performance. [[Cheerleader]] seems to be a fan&mdash;she comes for the wuggas, but stays for the jiggy juggas. They also received last place in The Battle of the Crappy High School Bands. Apparently, their music is popular with rats, as on two different occasions during the [[Homestar Ruiner Teen girl Squad|issue]] featured in [[Homestar Ruiner]], rats are attracted to the girls whenever a Brainkrieg ringtone plays.

The name "Brainkrieg" is most likely a pun on "Blitzkrieg" (German for "Lightning War"), a battle tactic used by the Wehrmacht in World War II, as well as a real-life [[Wikipedia:Blitzkrieg (band)|heavy metal band]] from England. Here, their name literally means "brain war", although the German word for brain is actually ''Gehirn''.

Brainkrieg released a video, "[[Hooked on Decemberween#If I Don't Get Video Games...|If I Don't Get Video Games...]]", for the [[Hooked on Decemberween]] holiday compilation album. In this song, they sound less like death metal, skewing more towards grunge or hardcore punk. The song revealed much more about the characters and their personalities: the band is fairly rebellious, obsessed with video games, and the singer apparently has a crazy uncle named Edgar.

In late October 2009, the band put on a live performance from the garage of the singer's parents' house, where they played their new single, "[[Decomposing Pumpkins]]", to an audience that included [[Cheerleader]], [[What's Her Face]] and all four [[The Gregs|Gregs]]. The drummer's mom did not give out good candy, so the other band members threw a decomposing pumpkin at him.

"Decomposing Pumpkins", in its entirety, was later selected as the [[Quote of the Week]] on October 22, 2009. Since this was just before the unannounced [[Homestar Runner (body of work)|Homestar Runner]] [[HRWiki:Hiatuses|hiatus]] went into effect, the Quote of the Week was not updated until exactly five years later. Additionally, this means "Decomposing Pumpkins" had the longest tenure as Quote of the "Week", far outlasting the previous record holder, [[Strong Bad]]'s "[[Teen Girl Squad Issue 13|Garbage Disposal]]" song from June 21, 2007, which lasted seven weeks before being updated.

In 2019, they wrote a song for [[Trogdor!! The Board Game Rulebook EP]] called "[[Trogdor's Fiery Rage (song)|Trogdor's Fiery Rage]]".
