His chops are too righteous!

Don't ever look back, on the world closing in,
Be on the attack with your wings on the wind,
And the games will begin!

SpongeBob SquarePants isn't a musical series. But when you've been on television for more than ten years, it's obvious that you're gonna have a few songs scattered throughout episodes. As for SpongeBob, it's had nine soundtrack albums (one of which came from the first movie, two from the second movie, and one from the musical).

The original Theme Song was created by Derek Drymon, Mark Harrison, Stephen Hillenburg and Blaise Smith, based on "Blow the Man Down", mixed in with other sea shanties, as Hillenburg always enjoyed that style.

Below is a list of the SpongeBob SquarePants soundtracks, and the songs featured in them.

The soundtracks provide examples of

  • Album Intro Track:
    • "WH20 Radio Show Open" from The Best Day Ever, featuring Al Bacore from WH2O introducing the album to the in-universe radio listeners.
    • "Prologue" from The New Musical, featuring French Narrator welcoming the audience to Bikini Bottom before the next song, "Bikini Bottom Day", plays.
  • Book-Ends:
    • Original Theme Highlights starts with the Theme Song and ends with its Halloween version.
    • The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie's soundtrack begins and closes with a version of the Theme Song.
  • Face on the Cover: Original Theme Highlights and The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie's cover prominently feature SpongeBob's face.
  • Fake Radio Show Album: The Best Day Ever, which in interspersed with song requests from the characters, ads, and even radio hijacking by Plankton.
  • Game of Chicken: "Ridin' the Hook" describes playing "hooky" (riding a fishing hook, getting pulled to the surface, then jumping off before reaching it) combined with this.
    They reel you in so fast
    Let's see who lets go last
  • "I Am Great!" Song:
    • "Superior" features Squidward bragging about how great he is compared to everybody else.
    • "Who Wants to Race Me?" has Sandy singing about how fast she is.
  • Job Song: "Employee of the Month" is about SpongeBob's work ethics at the Krusty Krab and how it earns him the titular award.
  • Location Song: "Bikini Bottom/Rock Bottom" is about the relaxing nature of Bikini Bottom and the energetic nature of Rock Bottom, told seperately in contrasting verses.
  • Longest Song Goes Last: The Best Day Ever closes with "Bikini Bottom/Rock Bottom" (4:41).
  • Lyrical Dissonance: "Where's Gary?" is an upbeat song about SpongeBob being distraught that Gary is missing.
  • Minimalistic Cover Art: The Yellow Album's cover is just the album title with yellow background. Although the cover of the "enhanced version" is less minimalistic with the addition of SpongeBob, Patrick, and promotional text.
  • Money Song: "Cha-Ching" from The Yellow Album and "Fishin' for Money" from ''The Best Day Ever". Not coincidentally, they're sung by Mr. Krabs.
  • Non-Appearing Title: "SpongeBob and Patrick Confronts the Psychic Wall of Energy", "Prince Paul's Bubble Party".
  • One-Word Title: "Barnacles!", "Superior", "Snowflakes".
  • Refrain from Assuming: Nobody ever refers "Gary's Song" as that, the likelihood is they're calling it "Gary Come Home".
  • Shout-Out: The Yellow Album's title and cover is an obvious one to The White Album.
  • Stylistic Suck: Squidward's vocals in "Superior" becomes this at several points, to the point he ends up coughing after struggling to reach the final high note.
  • Title Track: "The Best Day Ever" in The Best Day Ever.
