[edit] I Eb Et Ip

If you are wondering about the title, I'm saying I EDIT IT in vector SB style. Anyways, you more or less went off the original. I like it and Don't at the same time. But, now that I edited it, I like it! -Absorr|Homestar Runner Wiki is a must 00:03, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Title

From what the article indicates, it seems like the confirmation of the title here is based entirely on an MP3 filename. Is that in fact the case, or is there something else on the DVD to evidence this name? Heimstern Läufer 04:38, 4 July 2009 (UTC)

Unfortunately, I can't say since I don't own any Homestar DVDs. BBG 23:32, 10 July 2009 (UTC)
OK. I really don't think this page should have been moved without having discussed it or having a clear, incontestable source, so I've reverted for now and added a {{rename}} tag to begin discussion. First order of business: someone who has the DVD, what is the exact source of this title? Is it an MP3? If so, it's likely abbreviated and not authoritative (especially since the TTG people seemed to call it "The Protest Song" on their forum, which is a more plausible title than merely "Protest").

My copy of the SBCG4AP DVDs arrived today, and I can say that the name "Protest" is entirely from an MP3 filename. However, unlike, say, the filenames of the Quotes of the Week, these filenames all have reasonable song titles in them (and aren't heavily abbreviated):

  • 01 Handle My Style.mp3
  • 02 Protest.mp3
  • 03 My Face.mp3
  • 04 Doin' the Wigglie.mp3
  • 05 Food Related Love.mp3
  • 06 Not Very Nice.mp3
  • 07 Death of DADgeresque.mp3
  • 08 Handle My Style (Reprise).mp3
  • 09 Handle My Style (Instrumental).mp3

They also did a similar thing on the Sam and Max Season 1 DVD, have a few of the songs on there (a sampler for the soundtrack that was also released)... and all of those had the official song titles as filenames. So I think "Protest" is, in fact, the name of the song. --phlip TC 15:02, 16 July 2009 (UTC)

Wait, what? We're fighting over something that only two people ever look at? I mean, what? I'm really quite confused...... but anyway, keep the title. Like I said before, no one looks at this at all. In fact, why should we have this page up anyway? Doctorwho295 July 21, 2009

My vote is keep the title as it is. "Protest" is not the name of the song, like the first sentence in the article would suggest. Marzipan just said, "I wrote you a protest song." That definitely doesn't mean the name of the song is the name of an entire genre of songs that have been around for more than 40 years. so, just leave it alone.
btw dr. who: there are plenty of pages like that on this wiki, this page doesn't need to be deleted just b/c you think no one ever looks at it. The Knights Who Say Ni 23:45, 21 July 2009 (UTC)
It seems abundantly clear to me that the filenames are the titles. Hence, Protest it is. — DeFender1031*Talk 23:49, 21 July 2009 (UTC)
Whereas it seems abundantly clear to me that some of these filenames are abbreviated. "Not Very Nice"? What kind of song title is that? Seems like it's been shortened. Heimstern Läufer 23:55, 21 July 2009 (UTC)
Good point. Even so, "Protest Song" is still better than "Can't You Hear the Wind Blow?". — DeFender1031*Talk 23:57, 21 July 2009 (UTC)
It should be named protest song

Why come the title says can't you hear the wind blow and the sentence says protest?!? Make them Same 75.67.225.156 16:44, 18 August 2009 (UTC)

How about Marzipan's Protest Song? i'm pretty sure we don't have a definitive title, and this is a good generic description. The Knights Who Say Ni 01:58, 19 August 2009 (UTC)
