STRONG SAD: And I creep them out of the trash! {holds up record titled "Girlfriend Haircut" covered in mud and with a banana peel on it}

STRONG BAD: Yeah, that sounds like you. All Limozeen's doin' for Record Store Day is releasing a Cassette Maxi Single of their 7th Final Reunion Tour Brunch.

{Cut to wooden table with a Cassette case named "Limozeen but they're at brunch!"}

STRONG BAD: It's just them at some restaurant talking about escrow and knee surgery.

BUBS: Here ya go, Strong Sad. That'll be $400.

STRONG SAD: Ooh, on sale even! {turns around to face Strong Bad} Check it out, it's a B-side only.

STRONG BAD: Whoa!

STRONG SAD: It's pressed on 180-gram two-dimensional vinyl!

STRONG BAD: {rubbing his chin} Really? Swipey Town!

{Strong Bad jumps over to Strong Sad and punches down the Vinyl as we hear it shatter on the grass}

STRONG SAD: Oh! Where'd it go? {Looking down frantically} I can't see it!

STRONG BAD: Rwah-ha-ha-ha! {Strong Bad walks away} Music nerd! How's that for obscure?

[edit] The B-est of B-sides

{Cut to Sloshy music video with a soft drum beat in the background as the watermark "Made with BAND TRIBUTE SLIDESHOW LYRICS MAKER PLUS - TRIAL EDITION" is across the screen. Seconds later, Sloshy's logo appears. It is then replaced seconds later with a disc case of someone holding a guitar with their face whited out and in the corner, in Comic Sans, "the worst fonts EP"}

[edit] Fun Facts

[edit] Explanations

  • Record Store Day is a real holiday celebrated on the third Saturday of April to celebrate the culture of the independently owned record store. Some records are made specifically for Record Store Day and distributed to stores celebrating the holiday.
  • "180-gram vinyl" refers to modern gramophone record releases, which are often pressed on heavier vinyl (usually weighing 180 grams) as they provide higher quality sound and are less prone to deformation.
  • Many seven-inch vinyl singles are to be played back at 45 revolutions per minute.
  • The B-side of a record is its flip side, as opposed to the A-side. A-sides usually featured the recording intended to receive radio airplay and hopefully become a "hit" song, with B-sides usually being a throwaway song.
  • A Maxi single is a music single release with more than the usual two tracks of an A-side song and a B-side song.

[edit] Trivia

[edit] Remarks

  • The poster that appears at the "Of the in-store. Yeah!" is in Swedish and literally means "Performing live in Jukasjaarvi at the score's honorary ballroom - 10:00".
  • Both the German and Swedish posters use the 12-hour format, uncommon in Continental Europe, as it's more common for concerts to be in the evening. This means that the posters would say, respectively, 21:30 and 22:00.
  • The Japanese sticker on the cover for "All Tomorrow's Euro-Restrooms" literally means "DVD release on August 5th".
  • In the Flash version, the words "Than Thou Records" on Strong Sad's record and on one of the album covers can be highlighted using the cursor.
  • Bubsmoeba being a portmanteau of "Bubs" and "amoeba" is reminiscent of highschool, in which his paramecium form resembles an amoeba.
