'''Number One [[Jam]]''' is a phrase used within the [[Homestar Runner (body of work)|Homestar Runner]] body of work when [[The Brothers Chaps]] or a character is describing a song.  The term is often used in a self-referential context, so there is nothing to verify whether or not a song is actually a Number One Jam.  However, sometimes the claim is verified, as in [[time capsule]] when Stinkoman remarks "It tastes like a number one jam" after eating the Grumblecakes single.

This article is about "Jam" as a musical term. For the other uses of the word, see Jam.
"It tastes like a number one jam!"

Number One Jam is a phrase used within the Homestar Runner body of work when The Brothers Chaps or a character is describing a song. The term is often used in a self-referential context, so there is nothing to verify whether or not a song is actually a Number One Jam. However, sometimes the claim is verified, as in time capsule when Stinkoman remarks "It tastes like a number one jam" after eating the Grumblecakes single.
