'''Limozeen''' is a [[Wikipedia:Glam metal|glam metal]] band that [[Strong Bad]] admires; he even has an autographed picture of the members. Their name was born from the email [[band names]] and their logo is reminiscent of [[Wikipedia:AC/DC|AC/DC's]], having a similar font and lightning bolt in the center. The band consists of four blonde brothers with rhyming names (with their black-haired cousins Harry and Terry from [[Wikipedia:Long Island|Long Island]] occasionally contributing rhythm guitar and keyboard, respectively).  Their last name, Palaroncini, evokes an Italian heritage.  There was a cartoon based on the band that was set in [[outer space]], entitled ''[[Limozeen: "But they're in space!"]]''. However, its cancellation was announced ''during'' the pilot episode by [[Teeg Dougland]], the band's producer. They even have their own [[Limozeen Coloring Book|coloring book]], which was published for the 1989 Limozeen "Ladies, We're Staying in Room 302 at the Ramada" Tour. Limozeen has made some strange albums, including one called ''Feed the Childrens'', though it could just be a single. Strong Bad featured one of the songs on this album as number two in his [[bottom 10]] because the lyrics mainly consisted of "la la's", "na na's", and "doot do's".
 +
 
 +
The members of Limozeen are played by [[The Brothers Chaps]] and their friends while wearing outrageous [[wikipedia:1980s#Trends and Fashions|'80s-style]] blonde wigs and clothing. In some cases, the same person plays all the members of the band. In the [[Limozeen Thanksgiving E-Cards]], four different people played the members of Limozeen. In the email [[flashback]], [[Matt Chapman]] is everybody in Limozeen, while in [[monster truck]], all the members are played by [[Donnie Chapman]].
 +
 
 +
In 2007, Limozeen received "mainstream" exposure with the inclusion of their song "[[Because, It's Midnite]]" on the ''[[Wikipedia:Guitar Hero Encore: Rocks the 80s|Rocks the 80s]]'' edition of the ''[[Guitar Hero]]'' video game franchise.  This is the second time that a song from the [[Homestar Runner (body of work)|Homestar Runner]] body of work has appeared in a Guitar Hero title, the first being Strong Bad's "[[Trogdor (song)|Trogdor]]" as an unlockable bonus in ''[[Wikipedia:Guitar Hero II|Guitar Hero II]]''.

Limozeen is a glam metal band that Strong Bad admires; he even has an autographed picture of the members. Their name was born from the email band names and their logo is reminiscent of AC/DC's, having a similar font and lightning bolt in the center. The band consists of four blonde brothers with rhyming names (with their black-haired cousins Harry and Terry from Long Island occasionally contributing rhythm guitar and keyboard, respectively). Their last name, Palaroncini, evokes an Italian heritage. There was a cartoon based on the band that was set in outer space, entitled Limozeen: "But they're in space!". However, its cancellation was announced during the pilot episode by Teeg Dougland, the band's producer. They even have their own coloring book, which was published for the 1989 Limozeen "Ladies, We're Staying in Room 302 at the Ramada" Tour. Limozeen has made some strange albums, including one called Feed the Childrens, though it could just be a single. Strong Bad featured one of the songs on this album as number two in his bottom 10 because the lyrics mainly consisted of "la la's", "na na's", and "doot do's".

The members of Limozeen are played by The Brothers Chaps and their friends while wearing outrageous '80s-style blonde wigs and clothing. In some cases, the same person plays all the members of the band. In the Limozeen Thanksgiving E-Cards, four different people played the members of Limozeen. In the email flashback, Matt Chapman is everybody in Limozeen, while in monster truck, all the members are played by Donnie Chapman.

In 2007, Limozeen received "mainstream" exposure with the inclusion of their song "Because, It's Midnite" on the Rocks the 80s edition of the Guitar Hero video game franchise. This is the second time that a song from the Homestar Runner body of work has appeared in a Guitar Hero title, the first being Strong Bad's "Trogdor" as an unlockable bonus in Guitar Hero II.
