about

This is a parody of City Escape (or Escape From The City), a song made by the band Crush 40 for Sonic Adventure 2, a video game by Sega. It's © them as of 2001. I wrote new lyrics and remade it to pay homage to the Game Grumps and their beloved Sonic '06 series, which I recommend you go watch: www.youtube.com/watch?v=t7AtQHXCW5s

It also uses clips from their show, which are all (whatever license they use) them (or, in the case of "Hey" and "GREAT GREAT GREAT", © Sega again).

Here are the episodes that have the clips in the order of the clips' appearances:
Hey - Episode 5: Take It
We're playing..., and OH NOOOO - Episode 1: Oh No
Octopus Face - Episode 7: The Not-So-Silver Lining
GREAT GREAT GREAT - Episode 33: GREAT GREAT GREAT
Trainwreck - Episode 36: Off the Rails
Beautiful Little Moment (the one that goes Ohhhhhhhh ARIN DON'T LEAVE WHAT IS MY LIFE) - Episode 20: WHAT IS THIS?
It's no fuckin' use!, and Can we just stop now? - Episode 85: Catharsis

You might notice my voice randomly slightly changing. That's because I re-recorded the vocals to get rid of mic pops, but liked a lot of the old vocals better than the new version. So now it's basically a duet between me in 2013 and me in 2017. I think that's kinda cool.

Originally released 12/25/2013 (Merry Christmas / Happy Holidays / whatever)

lyrics

Hey
We're playing Sonic '06
Oh no
OH NOOOOOO

Rollin' around at the speed of sound
Got this game to beat, gotta get through these glitches
But where's the next stage; I've checked everywhere
I wish Soleanna had one way to find out
Only gray buildings ahead
I might as well just go in circles instead
And what's with these realistic faces?
At least they aren't octopuses (octopus face)

It's no use; it's no use
If we could finish it would be great great great (GREATGREATGREAT)
But I just glitched through a wall
It's no use; it's no use
But we promised our lovelies that we would do it
We'll make it through, prove it to you

Follow us!

Rollin' around at the speed of sideways?
I swear it's the game; I did not mean to do that!
Just give the controller to me
You always die quickly; show us the proof, Barry
*trainwreck sounds*
That is what you are right now

It's no use; it's no use
If we could finish it would be great great great (GREATGREATGREAT)
But I just glitched through a wall
It's no use; it's no use
But we promised our lovelies that we would do it
We'll make it through, prove it to you

Follow us!

*beautiful little moment*

Rollin' around at the speed of diagonal?
We're both dead inside, but we keep pushing for you
The tension in here just keeps going up
Some have speculated that we'll kill each other
This game just can't be finished
This series is why we had our first speed-ups
Arin's making embarrassing groans
Barry look at this; you're fired

It's no use; it's no use
If we could finish it would be great great great (GREATGREATGREAT)
But I just glitched through a wall
It's no use; it's no use
But we promised our lovelies that we would do it
We'd make it through except Jon left

Now we can't!
(IT'S NO FUCKIN' USE!)
'Cause Jon left!
(AAAAHAHA)

Not to say that Danny is bad
I love Dan!
and bought all the Ninja Sex Party albums and Starbomb and it's great and wow Brian is a professor and makes good music too my favorite is No Reason Boner yeahhhh

*more beautiful little moment*
