The Rock

There was a quote from Strong Bad's character video on a La Crosse, Wisconsin radio station called "95.7 The Rock." It goes from the part where Strong Bad says, "Ladies, form a line to my left for makeouts! Dudes, form a line to my right for high-fives," and stops at the part at which Homestar says, "Well, I was going to get a high-five, but I see that I'm already here."

  • It seems that The Rock are frequent users of Homestar Runner quotes, around once a week or so you can hear one pop up.

Q98

On Q98- 98.7 FM (a radio station in Fargo, ND/Moorhead, MN), the DJ, Stash, told listeners to visit the radio's website "...at q98.net, it's dot com." This is a reference to the First Time Here? cartoon, in which Homestar says, "Welcome to HomestarRunner.net ... It's dot com!" They also played a sound clip from Strong Bad's character page cartoon, were Strong Bad says, "Ladies, form a line to my left for makeouts! Dudes, form a line to my right for high fives!"
