SPONGEBOB Singing a Black Sabbath Song Is the Greatest

SpongeBob SquarePants may be one of the most successful children’s programs of all time, yes, but the show about a fun-loving sponge who lives in a pineapple under the sea also has a pretty good relationship with metal music, believe it or not. For instance, Pantera contributed a song to the “Prehibernation Week” episode, while Motörhead was included on the album The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie – Music from the Movie and More.

The metalhead foundation is there, and it’s all led to this: a fan edit by YouTube channel Movie Munchies of SpongeBob performing “War Pigs” by Black Sabbath ( via Tastefully Offensive).

You’ve surely heard “War Pigs” an uncountable amount of times by this point, so the real beauty here is in the editing. SpongeBob’s mouth movements sync up pretty much perfectly with Ozzy Osbourne’s vocals, and there are nice touches like Squidward playing clarinet during the guitar fills of the song’s intro, and SpongeBob playing organ and guitar elsewhere. A lot of the 7-minute song is instrumental, so it takes some clever editing to avoid dead air during a song of this length, and Movie Munchies pulls it off smoothly.

Does this measure up to the series’ greatest tunes like “Ripped Pants,” “The F.U.N. Song,” or “Campfire Song”? Perhaps not, no, but it could probably made Squidward’s set for halftime at the Bubble Bowl. What other hilarious and fun SpongeBob SquarePants fan edits have you come across?
