Awesome Music / Regular Show

Go To

Regular soundtrack? It's anything but!

  • "Death Punchies" gives us a whiff of 80's epic as early as the fourth episode, in the form of a short montage set to "You're the Best Around".
  • Mordecai and Rigby doing a Training Montage on an arcade game while "Hangin' Tough" plays over the sequence. Seriously, the writers seem to love dated 80s music. It's pretty awesome that the producers are willing to pay for all this music, since the licensing fees must be huge.

  • The score piece that plays during the audit in "Don". It almost sounds like it belongs in a theatrical production.
  • The ending theme that doesn't air on Cartoon Network proper, but does play when shown online and on DVD and Blu-Ray.
  • Kenny Loggins' "I'm Alright" proves to be a perfect fit for the opening of "First Day", in which we see Mordecai and Rigby getting their jobs at the park and moving into their room.
  • Pops' awesome rendition of "Footloose" in the climax of the karaoke episode.
  • "Hey Man, Nice Shot" by Filter playing during the climax of "Slam Dunk" (even though that song isn't about basketball playing; it's about the suicide of a corrupt politician that was broadcast on live television). The scene was a parody of the basketball scene in The Cable Guy.
  • "Mississippi Queen" by Mountain plays after the Mordecai, Rigby, and Benson imbibe a concoction of the same name during the climax of "Weekend at Benson's". The Disney Acid Sequence that ensues is excellently crafted and fits the song quite nicely.

  • Mordecai has a training montage to "Holdin' Out For A Hero" so he can eat a 12-egg omelette in under an hour in "Eggsellent".
  • Dies Irae plays when Skips beats Rigby in arm wrestling and kills him.
  • The 100th episode "A Bunch of Full Grown Geese" gave us the ultimate in 80's awesome with Stan Bush's "The Touch".
  • The BGM that plays when Skips drives Mordecai and Rigby to the Game Inferno Tournament. It's like something from Japanese anime.
  • "Return of Mordecai and the Rigbys" has "Keepin' it Cool", which starts out as an acapella song, but gradually becomes a kickass rock song. While this was all in Mordecai's imagination, it's still a rock so hard, it doesn't need instruments.
  • The background music in the "Put the Hurt On Him!" game, apart of "Just a Regular Game" on the Cartoon Network website.
  • The song that plays during the Nightmare-athon game is BADASS.
  • The background music during "Think Positive" when Benson builds up too much rage and starts to turn red all over and float in the sky, turning into a mass of power that threatens to destroy the entire park. The music sounds like the Bruce Faulconer soundtrack for Dragon Ball Z, and is not only fitting, but intense and epic. Full scene here.
  • "The Christmas Special" has Trans-Siberian Orchestra's "Christmas Eve/Sarajevo 12/24", a rock-remix of "Carol of the Bells". And it is awesome.
  • Mordecai and Rigby's song in the Thanksgiving special is a cross between awesome and heartwarming. The episode's opening and ending theme are also worth putting on this page.
  • The Metallica-esque thrash metal song that underscores the scene where Benson, Mordecai and Rigby are driving down the world's deadliest highway in "Busted Cart".
  • Party Tonight. Who cares if they were lip-syncing, it was still an exceedingly awesome song! CN made an awesome 80s music video for it. It's live action, and it has lasers.
  • "Rap It Up" has some sick beats provided by Childish Gambino, Tyler, the Creator and MC Lyte.
  • Mordecai and Rigby's rap about the world's countries from the short "USA! USA!".
  • The short "Fun Run" has Pops jogging all over the city while listening to "I Ran (So Far Away)".
  • "No Train, No Gain" is an episode length parody of the Training Montage. To mix up Pops's training for his battle with Anti-Pops, Mordecai and Rigby switch in DragonForce's "Through the Fire and the Flames", which results in Pops's powers growing immensely and the gang having to try stopping the music before things get out of control. Almost the entire song is played, which means it consists of nearly half the episode.
    Earl: How long is this song??
    Mordecai: Five and a half minutes!
  • In the episode "Gary's Synthesizer", Gary and his evil brother David engage in a musical duel for the throne to the appropriately named "Synth Wars".
  • With the show finally ending, how do they decide to go out with a bang? Among other things, they close out the Grand Finale with one last licensed song: "'Heroes'" by David Bowie. It proves to be a great fit for a "Where Are They Now?" Epilogue, and a beautiful tribute by J.G. to Bowie.


How well does it match the trope?
