[edit] Lyrics

TARANCHULA:
Mired on the moor!
Swamped in the sludge!
Dying on the floor!
Drown in the trudge!

Drown in the Trudgemank!

Drown in the Trudgemank!

PEACEY P: {talking} Hello? What? Who? Taranckula? Naww, fool. Wait, how much? Dang!

{rapping} Peacey P back on the mic again
Getting paid to rhyme with Scandinavians
Trudging through the mank so it's easy to find me
Mixing rap and heavy metal, like the early nineties.

{talking} '91 or '93. Anthrax and P.E.

I got the Crample-O style and the Crample-O flow
Got these metal-heads all up in my "STU G.O."
And get your product phat for ya

TARANCHULA:
Get your product phat!!

BOTH:
AHHHHHHH!

PEACEY P:
I'll say it once again, just in case'd you missed it,
Clean the gravy out your ears cause your head is a biscuit.
Y'all biscuit-heads!

That's what happens when you're down with the trudgemank!

TARANCHULA:
Get your product phat for ya!

PEACEY P:
That's what happens when you're down with the trudgemank!

TARANCHULA:
Get your product phat for ya!

PEACEY P:
That's what happens when you're down with the trudgemank!

TARANCHULA:
Get your product phat for ya!

PEACEY P:
That's what happens when you're down with the

BOTH:
Trudgemank!

PEACEY P: {talking} Maybe some of y'all fellas can maybe think about taking a shower or somethin' next time before ya come up in here. Stank!

{End video. Cut to The Cheat's Computer Room, where The Cheat is alone at his computer.}

THE CHEAT: {expectant, and then upset, The Cheat noises} {takes out a pizza trophy and places it on the desk} {happy The Cheat noises} {claps hands}

[edit] Inside References

  • The pizza trophy that Strong Bad said that he would give to The Cheat for his crazy cartoon in the Strong Bad Email of the same name appears in this music video at the end.
  • The Cheat has used JPEGs in this animation, which he had previously done in New Boots.
  • The run-down, industrial-like environment as well as the screw and the slab of meat at the beginning of the music video is a reference to Taranchula's previously seen music video: "The Decoupage", seen in death metal.
  • As with previous songs featuring Peacey P, this song is produced by Crample-O Stow Records. "Crample-O" appears in the lyrics and on the side of Peacey P's yacht.
  • Peacey P has blood on his coat during a segment, and mentions showering and "stank".

[edit] Real-World References

  • Peacey P refers to Anthrax and "P.E.", who collaborated on the track "Bring the Noise" in 1991, an early teaming of heavy metal and rap.
  • "Trudgment Night Soundtrack" is a reference to the 1993 soundtrack for the movie Judgment Night which featured pairings of rock and hip hop artists.
  • In the parts of the video where Peacey P is wearing a multicolored jacket and hat, he is wearing a shirt underneath which references A Tribe Called Quest, a hip-hop group popular in the early '90s.
  • The lines "I'll say it once again, just in case'd you missed it, / Clean the gravy out your ears cause your head is a biscuit" may be a reference to a line from a classic Digital Underground song. In "The Humpty Dance," Humpty Hump (a.k.a. Shock G) has this line: "I sang on 'Doowhutchyalike,' and if ya missed it, I'm the one who said, 'Just grab 'em in the biscuits!'"
  • In the spirit of the collaboration with Taranchula, Peacey P's boat exhibits "CRAMPLE-O" written as "Crample-Ø". Some Scandinavian languages use the Ø, or an "O with a stroke", in their alphabets.
    • Incidentally, the Ø is usually used to represent a sound similar to the "oo" sound in the word "book".
  • The navy and orange "34" jersey that Peacey P wears is similar to a Walter Payton jersey. Wearing retro or fashion sports jerseys is popular with some rappers.
  • The loading screen simply says Load, which may be a reference to the Metallica album of same name.
  • The line "Down with the Trudgemank" may be a reference to the song "Down With the Sickness" by Disturbed. Due to the mention of Public Enemy, it may also be a reference to "Down with the P.E." from the song Burn Hollywood Burn, which was previously parodied in Homestarloween Party.
  • The saw blade seen in the video may be a reference to the "buzzsaw guitar sound" pioneered by Swedish Death Metal bands such as Entombed.
