'''''24: The Musical''''' is a fan-made musical based on the second season of FOX's hit drama ''Series/TwentyFour''. The music and lyrics were written by Creator/JonAndAlKaplan and it also features the ''24'' soundtrack music of Sean Callery. It parodies both the general elements of ''24'', as well as specifics from the show's second season, such as the hacking off of Marshall Goren's head and the infamous "trapped in a woods with a cougar" sequence. It can be found [[http://www.jonandal.com/24-season-two/ here]]. A music video of the Kimberly Bauer song "Bring It On" can be found [[http://www.funnyordie.com/videos/2fccd72a35/24-the-musical-kim-and-the-cougar here]].

!''24: The Musical'' includes many of the familiar tropes of ''24'', as well as the following:

* AngryMobSong: "Three Countries In The Middle East", though it's a pretty small crowd (the president's advisers).
* BackupBluff: In "I Will Torture You", the president calls Jack and tells him expressly to ''not'' kill Ali's innocent family as a means of getting him to talk, as it's "just not the way we work here". Jack affirms that he understands, and then returns to Ali and bluffs that the call was the president giving him a blank check to do whatever is necessary to get the information from Ali.
* DeathSong: "Someone Had To Volunteer"
* DarkReprise: "Dammit! (The Longest Day of My Life) Reprise and Finale"
* TheElevenOClockNumber: "Coliseum Fight"
* TheEndOrIsIt: "Dammit! (The Longest Day of My Life) Reprise and Finale"
* GreyAndGrayMorality: {{Lampshaded}}, in "Dammit!," Jack Bauer sings that "Sometimes the rules can be gray," in justifying shooting Marshall Goren and then asking for a hacksaw.
--> '''Jack''': Get me a hacksaw, to cut off his head!
--> '''Mason''': Are you crazy, Jack?
--> '''Jack''': Come on, George. He's already dead! I know this is drastic, it's all that we've got. Sometimes the rules can be gray!
* JackBauerInterrogationTechnique: "Torture and killing / They're par for the course / Sometimes there's no other way / You want results / You gotta use force / This is the longest day of my life!"
** He has an entire song, "I Will Torture You", about how he tortures Ali.
* LampshadeHanging: Plenty of it regarding the show's stock-in-trade tropes
* LetsDuet: "So Many Weeks Away", between Michelle and Tony.
* MoodWhiplash: "Someone Had To Volunteer", which jumps between the lampshade-hanging humor of the rest of the songs and genuinely tear-jerking moments as Jack decides that he needs to stay behind to make sure the nuclear bomb will explode without killing others.
-->'''Jack''': I love you very much, sweetheart.\\
'''Kim''': Daddy, you can't do this. / You can't leave me alone. / Forget about the stupid bomb / You're gonna end up just like Mom / Come ''home!''
* MurderIsTheBestSolution: According to Jack, all his problems with terrorists can be solved through a combination of shooting people in the head and torture.
-->'''Jack:''' You want results, you gotta use force!
* TheMusical: Obviously. The creators chose the program's second season for the musical because they felt it was the most entertaining at the time that they made it.
* PrecisionFStrike: Jack Bauer, towards the end of "Dammit! (The Longest Day of My Life) Reprise and Finale"
* RhymesOnADime: President David Palmer in the "Back Where I Belong" song
--> '''David''': Am I skeptical? Very! And there's a reason for it, Sherry!
* ShapedLikeItself: From "I Will Torture You"
-->'''Jack''': I will torture you! / I will hurt you until you tell me things!
* VillainSong: "Back Where I Belong"
** "The Murder Of Jack"
* YouMakeMeSick: David Palmer to Sherry in "Back Where I Belong"
-->'''Sherry''': Back where I belong, isn't that a kick? I'm the mother of your children, after all.
-->'''David''': You make me sick.
