"Go for the 8-track!"

The 8-track tape is a now-obsolete format for recorded music. Gaining popularity in the 1970s as a way to play music in cars, they were soon superseded by cassette tapes. Strong Bad's penchant for obsolete technology means the tape format sees occasional reference in Homestar Runner.

[edit] Instances of the 7-Track

The 7-Track is a fictional cassette player introduced in Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People and used in three of the episodes. In real life, although there were 3- and 4-track tapes, no 7-track ever existed.

  • Homestar Ruiner — Strong Bad has a 7-Track player in his bedroom, saying that its lack of a play button was its downfall.
  • Baddest of the Bands — The 7-Track returns, and Strong Bad remembers when he used to put Strong Sad's retainer in there to "make it feel like it's still part of the team".
  • 8-Bit is Enough — Strong Bad once again notes the 7-Track player, mentioning its lack of an on-button, speakers, or any place to insert a tape.
