Music plays a role in the cultural and social interactions of several different groups in Erfworld. Several different sides have been shown singing and playing various musical instruments, including at least two types of horns. Erf-b1-p007Same-site.PNG Erf-b1-p094Same-site.PNG

Music also plays a role in coordinating troops in battle during dance-fighting. For instance, in the Battle for Gobwin Knob, units that were engaged in dance-fighting either performed their own songs, as in the case of TransylvitoErf-b1-p111Same-site.PNG, or music was generated magically, as was the case when Charlie's Archons created a beat for the Royal Crown Coalition forces to follow in the courtyard of Gobwin Knob.Erf-b1-p128Same-site.PNG

Crazy!
Go!
Cool!
When you're a bat,
you're a bat all the way!
From you first startin' stat,
til the turn you decay!
Da DOO da-doo-dooooo...
Da DOO da-doo-doo doo DOOooooo...


Excerpt from an untitled, anti-Jetstone song from Gobwin KnobErf-b1-p101Same-site.PNG
ostensibly written by Parson Gotti

Oh the mighty men of Jetstone,
Their testes have not yet grown!
Their king stays home and gets stoned,
While the prince goes out and gets pwned!

And the men from Transylvito
Are hung just like mosquitos!
To protect their little egos
They put burritos in their Speedos!

Real World References

The Transylvitian dancefighting song is a modified version of the Jet's theme song and the song "Cool" from the musical "West Side Story".

The lyrics to the song overheard in the Glade of the Hippiemancers are from the song "A Mighty Wind" from the movie of the same name which is a mockumentary about folk music.
