Cavalcade of Glee and Dadaist Happy Hardcore Pom Poms is a 2006 breakcore album by Venetian Snares.

"XIII's Dub" has a 13/4 time signature, "Donut" has an 11/4 time signature, "Twirl" is 10/4, and "Cancel" is 5/4; this deviates from Venetian Snares' primarily used 7/4 time. "Swindon" contains a sample of a female voice saying "Someone in Leicester got stabbed in a club with, like, a syringe full of AIDS blood". The track is named after the English town of Swindon, in Wiltshire. The title of the third track, "Pwntendo", is a portmanteau of the gaming slang word "pwn" and the name of the video game company Nintendo. "Tache" features a recording of Philippe Soupault's poem "Quand on regarde une montre". The track "P", contrary to the harsh breakcore beats of the other tracks, is rather subdued, containing no percussion whatsoever. The track "Vache" features a sample of the French spoken sentence "Une machine qui fait des vaches", which translates to "A machine that makes cows", also referring back to the sample which appears in the beginning of the song, "This is a machine for making cows." "Vache" likely relates to the album art.
