[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] Trivia

  • Peacey P's nightcap reads "Slee P".
  • The bubbles (after the meat slithering across the floor) have the Taranchula Logo on them as part of the reflected light pattern.
  • The Cheat's trophy reads "PIZZA TROPHY FOR THE CHEAT".

[edit] Inside References

  • The pizza trophy that Strong Bad said that he would give to The Cheat in crazy cartoon 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.
  • 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.
