Strong Bad Sings and Other Type Hits (also called Strong Bad Sings) is a compilation album including twenty songs by Strong Bad and other various characters and artists from the Homestar Runner body of work, as well as a "Secret Song" sung by Homestar Runner himself. The title of the album is based on the toon Strong Bad Sings, a commercial for a fake Strong Bad album, and many of the songs named in the toon can be heard in full. The CD is sold for $15, and includes a color booklet and Limozeen sticker.

[edit] CD

Part Description
CD It looks like a home-burned CD-R of the Videlectrix Media brand (which parodies the appearance of many CD-Rs), with a capacity of "70 jg". The title looks like it was hand-written with a permanent marker. On the underside of the CD, the word "Homestar" is laser-etched into the outer part of the middle.
Cover The front of the CD jacket has a blue ballpoint pen illustration of Strong Bad with blaring amps for feet, lightning bolts for arms, and two electric guitars sticking out of his head like gigantic horns.
Inside Cover Trogdor is burninating a modern-day city and fending off a jet, helicopter, tank, and some infantrymen. A defeated pig-man, possibly the Kerrek, is also shown. There is also a pouch-like slit to hold the booklet and sticker.
Sticker A rectangular sticker with the Limozeen logo in white on a black background.
Booklet The front has a color version of the illustration from the jacket. The next two pages feature three promotional posters:
Strong Bad
[Illustration of SB saying "26 Bucks!"]
Live in West Rekjavik
Wednesday the 3rd
Bring some ladies!

The Kinda Long-Haired Band

the lounge at Dobble Hall!

18 and over
At the Iron Rock Tavern
w/ special Guest Firehorse (up from Dempsey)

On page four, there is a Taranchula album cover, featuring a sinister-looking rocker-type flexing his biceps, with a black background and glowing white skin. The Limozeen album cover for "Zeenin' Into the Night" is seen on page five, and features the members of Limozeen in silhouette, standing atop a limousine at sunset and assuming rocker poses.

The last two pages contain the drawings behind the credits and acknowledgments appear to be "prototype" drawings of some of the characters, including Teen Girl Squad and Eh! Steve!. A fat Strong Sad, a The S is for Sucks prototype and a Stinkoman without any blue hair can also be seen. A character that looks a bit like Homeschool Winner can be seen on the far right side. There are also a few pictures from Exaggerations.

The back of the booklet contains a photo of Dangeresque-like sunglasses under a spotlight.

Part Description
Front cover An illustration of Strong Bad standing in a sci-fi landscape. He is muscular and has three arms - a typical boxing-glove hand holding a stylized microphone with an eyeball at the top, a cybernetic arm holding aloft a laser sword, and a monstrous green arm holding an electric guitar with an eyeball on the head. His mouth is full of sharp teeth and bat-like wings are coming out of his back. He is wearing zebra-striped tights and a space helmet.
Spine The star from either the H*R logo or Homestar's shirt, the title "STRONG BAD SINGS (AND OTHER TYPE HITS)", the label code "FG40", and a Fangamer logo.
Back cover The version of Strong Bad from the cover, seen in reverse onstage overlooking a sea of skull-like faces. Beneath this is a track list broken up by sides, and below that is the copyright information.
Vinyl record Fangamer: Red with black splatter.
Ship to Shore: Green with black splatter.
Side A label A stylized illustration of a monstrous Strong Bad in profile, with "Side A" printed beneath.
Side B label A much simpler illustration of the reverse, drawn by Strong Bad, on lined paper with "SIDE B" written roughly beneath. A sticky note on the drawing reads:
hey art guy,
i dunno.
sumpn like
this? -SB
Record sleeve front Illustration of a warrior-style Strong Bad, different from the version seen on the cover, with a mohawk and wearing armor. He is holding aloft a sword in his cybernetic right arm, and yelling into a microphone held in his left hand. He is facing a large dragon with guitar-like features, like tuning pegs and frets, all over its body.
Record sleeve back Typed list of credits. In the margins, several doodles from Strong Bad suggest squinting your eyes to see the shapes that the text make up.

Liner notes

"Strong Bad's musical talents exist at a crossroads of a crockload of
sonic tenacity, lyrical ascendancy, and melodic pretendency. These raw
ingredients are melted down in the brainfurnace of his mind and poured
at high velocity out of his fleshtangle mouth into the waiting vessel
of your eager ears like melted cheese into that little meatbowl that
happens when you microwave a single slice of baloney."

— Strong Bad, talking in the mirror a few seconds ago

Welcome, taut listener, to this vinyl release of Strong Bad Sings! If
you're like me, you've spent the last 17 years of your life trying to
get the original CD release to play on your turntable, ruining needles,
wrecking the disc, and spending many fruitless hours on the phone with
Audio-Technica customer support. I even tried spray painting the CD
black and cut a bigger hole in the middle with a jigsaw so it'd look
like a seven-inch. It still didn't play (and actually made sparks this
time!) but I was able to sell it to Strong Sad for 23 bucks when I
wrote "UK Import" on it. The point is, this version of the album will
ACTUALLY work on your record player! Also Limozeen is on it! Twice!
And Taranchula! Definitely sub-woof your tweeters when those tracks
come on. I was kinda hoping Coach Z and Marzipan's songs would get cut
from this release but they're still on here. But it's mostly all me and
that means this record is full of train-droppers, know what I'm sayin'?
So get a super long extension cord, put your record player in your
car, roll down the windows, and crank this here opus while you drive
around the cul de sac until the neighbors call the cops*!

How do I make #1 Jams with boxing gloves on? Drop the needle, taut
listener, and find out!

  • The CD contains the music video for "These Peoples Try to Fade Me" directed by The Cheat. While video should auto-start in a Windows-based computer, it will not auto-start on a Mac OS-based computer. However, it can be viewed on either system, regardless of whether it starts itself automatically. The name of the CD when it is in the drive is "SUPER_SECRETS".

  • Wild's Pizza and Iron Rock Tavern are real companies.
  • The "backwards message" mentioned in the inscription makes reference to backmasking, a recording technique where backwards audio is recorded onto a track meant to be played forward. Urban legends held that rock musicians would use backmasking to hide subliminal Satanic messages.
