Soak is the first album from Guitar Fight From Fooly Cooly, released August 14, 2020.

Soak contains examples of:
- Album Intro Track: "64" is (just barely) the shortest track on the album and introduces the album with some riffs and samples of Super Mario 64.
- Emo Music: Falls into "Emo Revival". Musically, it uses distorted guitars playing either Math Rock-tinged riffs or power chords and the lyrics are emotional, blunt, and often yelled.
- Last Note Nightmare: Ginger Ailment starts out as a surprisingly calm song right after Teens//Candle, one of the harder songs up to that point. About halfway through, it stops for a second before launching into heavily distorted Noise Rock and stays that way for the last half of the song.
- Math Rock: There's some distorted math rock style riffs on the lighter songs on the album, like 64 and Stay Hydrated, Fuck Em.
- Mohs Scale of Rock and Metal Hardness: Generally around a 5 to 6, but some songs like the Noise Rock second half of Ginger Ailment and the Heavy Metal-like ending of Tea And Crumpets bump it up a notch.
- Noise Rock: The last half of Ginger Ailment. The first half is calmer and almost ambient, but the last half launches into heavy distortion and noise with no warning.
- Non-Appearing Title: All of the songs, except a sample in My Friends Are My Power and the Harsh Vocals ending of Tea And Crumpets.
- Re-release the Song: Stay Hydrated, Fuck Em was released as a demo in June of 2019.
- 64 samples Super Mario 64, mainly Mario's voice lines and... elevator noises?
- My Friends Are My Power samples a line from when Sora battles Riku in Kingdom Hearts."How will you fight without a weapon?" "I know now, I don't need the keyblade, I got a better weapon. My heart!" [...] "I don't need a weapon, my friends are my power!"
- Both Teens//Candle and Dr. Robot use samples from FLCL, with the latter using the "guitar hit" noise. What would you expect from a band called Guitar Fight From Fooly Cooly?
- Shout-Out: Many, throughout the album. Also see Sampling.
- My Friends Are My Power samples a line from Kingdom Hearts and the lyrics talk about "feel[ing] like a Heartless" and asks "will I ever find my keyhole".
- 4th Gen:We're in Sinnoh and I'm fighting Team Galactic again / But you know / It won't be for too long / I'm far too distracted / Yeah / No Diamond, Pearl, or Platinum for me
- Textless Album Cover: Aside from some labels you can barely make out, the cover is completely textless.
