'''Taranchula''' is a death [[Heavy Metal|metal]] band first mentioned in the Strong Bad Email "[[band names]]." The members of the band are Dave Bjornborg, Dave Olafstenston, and Schenkel McDoo. Their only known songs are "[[Moving Very Slowly]]" from ''[[Strong Bad Sings and Other Type Hits]]'' (heard briefly during the email [[fingers]]), "The Decoupage" (whose video is directed by [[Teeg Dougland|Mort Dougland]]), "Brother In A Jar" (composed for [[Strong Bad]]'s would-be [[your funeral|funeral]]) and "[[Trudgemank]]", featuring Peacey P (which The Cheat animated a music video for). Also, in the Strong Bad Email [[montage]], Strong Bad can be seen listening to a Taranchula album with the [[Wagon Fulla Pancakes]], and in the email [[more armies]], an Easter egg reveals their album ''Shady Missionaries.'' They might be based on Sepultura, a Brazilian thrash metal band that uses stop motion animation in their videos, much like Taranchula's clip in [[death metal]]. The picture of Taranchula in the ''Strong Bad Sings and Other Type Hits'' insert is very reminiscent of [[Wikipedia:Glenn Danzig|Glenn Danzig]].

The video for "The Decoupage" is perhaps a spoof of the band [[Wikipedia:Tool (band)|Tool]]'s video for their single "Sober", as both videos are stop motion and feature a shapeless creature slithering about the sets of the videos. In Tool's case, the creature is of [[Wikipedia:Sober (Tool song)#Video|unknown origins]]; in Taranchula's case, it is a piece of meat.

Taranchula is a death metal band first mentioned in the Strong Bad Email band names. The members of the band are Dave Bjornborg, Dave Olafstenston, and Schenkel McDoo. The three members of the band are portrayed by Matt, Mike and another Matt. Their only known songs are "Moving Very Slowly" from Strong Bad Sings and Other Type Hits (heard briefly during the email fingers), "The Decoupage" (whose video is directed by Mort Dougland), "Brother In A Jar" (composed for Strong Bad's would-be funeral) and "Trudgemank", featuring Peacey P (for which The Cheat animated a music video). Also, in the Strong Bad Email montage, Strong Bad can be seen listening to a Taranchula album with the Wagon Fulla Pancakes, and in the email more armies, an Easter egg reveals their album Shady Missionaries. The picture of Taranchula in the Strong Bad Sings and Other Type Hits insert is very reminiscent of Glenn Danzig.

The video for "The Decoupage" is perhaps a spoof of the band Tool's video for their single "Sober", as both videos are stop motion and feature a shapeless creature slithering about the sets of the videos. In Tool's case, the creature is of unknown origins; in Taranchula's case, it is a piece of meat. The video for "Moving Very Slowly" was released on the Strong Bad Email DVD.

Products endorsed by the band include the Taranchula Black Metal Detector (from Videlectrix Kidx) and Cold Ones Dry.
