The intro to Trogdor, crediting the song to Strong Bad.

Guitar Hero is a series of video games formerly developed by Harmonix that enables players to play along to well-known rock songs using a guitar-shaped controller. The CEO of Harmonix, Alex Rigopulos, contacted The Brothers Chaps and asked if they would be willing to include a Homestar Runner song as a bonus track on Guitar Hero II (see Georgia Tech - 26 Apr 2007). Following the success of Guitar Hero II, Harmonix developed Guitar Hero Encore: Rocks the 80s and once again used a Homestar Runner song as part of the game's set list. Another sequel in the series, Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock, had many people's hopes up to have another song from the homestar runner body of work. Unfortunately, there is no song on the game from homestarrunner.com

Guitar Hero II

The description of Trogdor from the in-game store.
Trogdor is an unlockable bonus track in Guitar Hero II. The description given for the song in the game's menu reads
The Trogdor song from
the Strong Bad Email
'dragon' was actually an
afterthought that was
added at the last minute.
Mike was finishing up
the cartoon and Matt
suddenly started
screaming the chorus
while making eggs.

The loading screen for the song displays what is apparently advice on playing the song from Strong Bad:

"For squeadlies, mash on the trembalo. For meadlies, tone up on your chord surpassers. Oh, and I'm awesome."

This advice is based on Strong Bad's guitar terminology from guitar.

Guitar Hero Encore: Rocks the 80s

Because It's Midnite is featured as an "encore" song in Guitar Hero Encore: Rocks the 80s. The song is considered particularly difficult, because of the main guitar solo.

The Loading screen for the song reads
While on tour,
Limozeen used to
demand leather
sheets from the
hotels they stayed
at until the rashes
and animal rights
activists became a
problem.
