Strong Bad Sings (and Other Type Hits) is a compilation album featuring songs by Strong Bad and other characters from the Homestar Runner web cartoon series.[2] Strong Bad Sings is the first CD spinoff from the online cartoon world of homestarrunner.com.[3] The CD stands out since the characters' expressive nature and sarcastic wit comes across through sound alone even though they normally are present in a visual format on the website.[3] The songs represent various pastiches of popular music, such as glam metal, folk, hip hop, techno and indie rock.

The songs "Trogdor" and "Because It's Midnite" appear in Guitar Hero II and Guitar Hero Encore: Rocks the 80s, respectively. There is also a "Secret Song" that features Homestar Runner very late into the last track.[3] The disc also contains a music video for "These Peoples Try to Fade Me", inferred to be animated by The Cheat.
