The [[Wikipedia:lo-fi music|lo-fi]] band '''sloshy''' is a group that [[Strong Sad]] enjoys listening to. They were introduced in the Strong Bad Email [[concert]], where they were opening for a [[Limozeen]] concert. [[Strong Bad]] was at first unwilling to view their set (as he had not heard of them), instead choosing to come "fashionably late". Due to a general lack of women in the audience, Limozeen never came on to play, and so sloshy played both sets, becoming one of Strong Bad's favorite bands until he finally realized they are not [[Heavy metal|metal]].

The band has been around since approximately 2001, and initially had a total of three members: Mitch Stockton, the lead vocalist and guitarist; Clark Cross-Country, the bassist and backing vocalist; and Dan DiMinilliditto, the drummer. In 2018, it was revealed they had added two new members, Doug Tarndner and Mark D., who both play guitar. Overall, they appear somewhat apathetic to their performances; during concerts, the band just strings some Christmas lights over the bass drum for special effects, wear whatever they had been wearing that day, and display a general lack of courtesy for the audience.  Clark looks strikingly similar to [[Wikipedia:Patrick Wilson (musician)|Patrick Wilson]], the drummer of alternative rock band [[Wikipedia:Weezer|Weezer]]. He wears regular glasses, not sunglasses, much to Strong Bad's astonishment.

The band has been around since approximately 2001. One of sloshy's most noticeable traits is that their only backup singing consists of one of the members (very blandly) repeating previous lines with an echoey microphone effect, or in the case of "Because, It's Midnite," saying "Because, It's Midnight." This, and the band's overall style, bears similarity to influential indie/alternative rock band {{w|Pavement (band)|Pavement}}.

The lo-fi band sloshy is a group that Strong Sad enjoys listening to. They were introduced in the Strong Bad Email concert, where they were opening for a Limozeen concert. Strong Bad was at first unwilling to view their set (as he had not heard of them), instead choosing to come "fashionably late". Due to a general lack of women in the audience, Limozeen never came on to play, and so sloshy played both sets, becoming one of Strong Bad's favorite bands until he finally realized they are not metal.

The band has been around since approximately 2001. One of sloshy's most noticeable traits is that their only backup singing consists of one of the members (very blandly) repeating previous lines with an echoey microphone effect, or in the case of "Because, It's Midnite," saying "Because, It's Midnight." This, and the band's overall style, bears similarity to influential indie/alternative rock band Pavement.

The members of sloshy were the antagonists of Limozeen: "But they're in space!" on at least one occasion. However, the page title of Limozeen vs. sloshy ("The Label Made Us Do It!") suggests that sloshy and Limozeen are signed to the same record label.

The name sloshy is usually written in all lowercase even in running text, and their wordmark is rotated 180 degrees with the o being a different color, usually red (ʎɥsols).
