Thanks! I keep saying that one of these days I'm gonna revamp it with even more references, but I've yet to commit to actually doing that.

Lots of the songs depicted are from Flood yes? I see, Birdhouse In Your Soul, Lucky Ball and Chain, Dead, We Want A Rock, and.... other things look familiar but I can't place them

Yeah, there are a good many from Flood but I tried to use songs from a wide variety of albums. One of these days I'm gonna take the time to re-do this with even more references.

This is SO amazing!!! My sister and I got so excited that we probably spent over half an hour obsessively looking for references that we might have missed...you know, because we're just that cool ;p. Totally made our day! I especially love the Birdhouse In Your Soul reference, though Lucky Ball And Chain is a close second. (Flood was the first album I listened to when I was 9, and it's still my favorite :love:) This brings back so many happy memories from my childhood--thanks!!

Thanks for taking the time to comment! I'm so glad to know you and your sister got so much enjoyment from it! Though I give most of that credit to TMBG...enjoyability seems to flow naturally from them.

I've often considered making a revamped version of this packed with even more references, but have yet to take the time to tackle the project. :)

Aww, I adore how many song references there are in this pic. For some reason it particularly amuses me that the crane doubles as a reference to "They'll Need a Crane" and "Lucky Ball and Chain". xD

also, there's the "i am a grocery bag"
and "we wanna rock"
is the chair from "someone keeps moving my chair"?
Reply
:iconstudiobueno:
StudioBueno Featured By Owner Dec 30, 2007
The grocery bag is actually a double-reference. You guessed one of them--the other one is from "Dead".

You're right about the chair.

is the "catfood" reference to "Don't Lets Start"?
and just a hunch, but is the birds flying a reference to one of their early EP songs "Birds Fly"?
Reply
:iconstudiobueno:
StudioBueno Featured By Owner Dec 30, 2007
Yes, the catfood is "Don't Let's Start".
Your guess for the birds is good, but I actually didn't even think of that one!

My intended reference was "Flying V" from the "Here Come the ABC's" kids' album.

Oh, I totally missed the "They'll Need a Crane" reference...I thought it was "Lucky Ball and Chain" because there was a four-leaf clover on it...

Had a fun time finding all the references though. ^__^

:iconstudiobueno:
StudioBueno Featured By Owner Dec 26, 2007
Actually I intended for that to be a reference to "Lucky Ball & Chain" AND "They'll Need a Crane" at the same time. Multi-tasking song references! Woo-hoo! Thanks for commenting.

That would be "Wearing A Raincoat" from the "Spine" album.
