Okay, I so called this. I was totally thinking about Sloshy while I was walking my dog last week, and I was like "Man, it would be awesome if Limozeen did a cover of a sloshy song."
THEN MY DOG WENT PEE, THE END.

This toon proves that Sloshy sucks, and Limozeen rocks.
WHY, do you ask?

BECAUSE IT'S MIDNITE!!!

3/5

Schweeeeeet. I was just thinking, since I've been playing Guitar Hero games lately, that the Brothers Chaps are insanely talented musically, at least as far as being able to crank out realistic cheesy '80s hair-metal is concerned. I mean, doing all those character voices is one thing, but to be able to sing in that high range on top of all that... Matt is my hero.

And Limozeen does an awesome job turning Sloshy's non-song into something palatable. FUN FACT: You can "mash up" the chorus with Twisted Sister's "We're Not Gonna Take It." :P

Sloshy, meanwhile, sucks. Much worse than I picked up on from the email, since :sb: decided they were his new favorite "metal band." Not only that, the "original" clearly wasn't even the same version of their song, because it didn't have the long, monotonous guitar solo in it anywhere.

Oh, and another thing I noticed... there are some marked differences between the Limozeen "original" of "Because, It's Midnite" and the Guitar Hero version. I don't own the CD, so does anyone know which of those two versions is on the CD?

Awesome! I like their music things. I agree that they're really artistically talented, even when they're mocking those styles. I give it 5.

Probably the one from the website, because they changed Trogdor a little just for Guitar Hero as well.

I listened a second time, and I think maybe I was wrong about there being a difference; the Guitar Hero one just has the lead guitars mixed higher, covering up some things (like the keyboards in the last chorus).

Sloshy is good and you don't know it, now Limozeen of the other hand, it was a very interesting cover. I sorta liked Sloshys cover of Limozeen was actually better the Limozeens cover of Sloshy

4/5

a refrence to smoking isn't bad, they refrenced it in a lot of episodes before and no one's had a problem. And it's not like kids that are 6 or 7 watch this and go "Awesome man! Sloshy must be good cause they smoke!*calls up 21 year old dude he met on his fake myspace* Hey dude buy me some cigarettes"

Augh. I don't know why I said that. Maybe because colds affect my ability to tell what's good and what's good.

I didn't mind Sloshy in the email, but I wasn't a fan in this toon (not that that wasn't intended, they're making fun of the genre). This actually made me like Limozeen better, though - they're cover was actually pretty good (coulda done without the rolled r's, though)

I actually give this one a 4/5, mainly because I think the idea was brilliant.

Is it just me, or does sloshy sound a bit like Thursday? Except, you know, sloshy kind of sucks, while Thursday is awesome.

Pretty good, especially the easter egg at the end. That was ROFL.
4/5

Meh. Couldn't listen to the whole thing. Not really that great. Don't want to use complete sentences.

I didn't listen to most of it, just the first part of each song, and the Easter Egg.

I voted a 3, but should have voted 2.

I liked it. Especially Sloshy's version of "Because, It's Midnite." Also, to me, TBC appear to Mudhoney fans. Sloshy has a similar guitar sound to Mudhoney and Larry Palaronchini sounds like the singer (Mark Arm) at times.

Limozeen forever!

I didn't like the Sloshy cover, so when it ended, I went right ahead and listened to the Limozeen original.

Heart of a lion,
And the wings of a bat
Because it's Midnite!

I wish I could change my vote to "5" because I haven't been able to get these songs out of my head since this morning. I love how Limozeen seemed like they enjoyed covering "We Don't Really Even" while sloshy... didn't really even care.
And here I was thinking TBC had stopped making awesome music.

Ok I'm listening to Sloshy's version of Because It's Midnite and it kind of sounds like In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida by Iron Butterfly

in reguards to my edit that someone promptly took down:

why wouldn't we want a cross-reference to this? I know I sure didn't know about this page he's referencing. I'm sure other people don't as well.

A great parody of the music industry and the mini toon easter egg was funny.

Eh, I didn't find the songs too great/funny when compared to other songs on the website, but the easter egg was really awesome. I'll give it a 3/5.

At the beginning of Sloshy's cover of "Because, it's Midnite", the singer sounds exactly like Stephen Malkmus.

And the easter egg was great, 5/5.

I thought the Stinkoman version of Because it's Midnite was a little better than the sloshy one, though.

EDIT: And I loved that Easter Egg. But why are Limozeen firing on sloshy? What did sloshy do?


Stinkoman version?

I feel really feel stupid for asking, and I checked the wiki... :blush:

And I wish there was a way to download the original "We don't even really care"...

Who says that was necessarily the same song?

I'll say it was OK, because I enjoyed the easter egg more than the toon itself.

It'd be better to bring it up on the talk page. DeFender is kind of quick to revert anyway, so I wouldn't take it personally.

It's on one of the Strong Bad Email DVDs. Disc 2 I think. He says the lines in a surprised sort of tone and it's really funny.

And I think you can download the original sloshy song from the wiki's Quote of the Week page.

I have Disc 2, and that has Homestar, Strong Bad, Marzipan, and Coach Z Karaoke. I think it's number four.
