Author Topic: Looking for a bluegrass Mario Bros song I heard on WTMK in 2000s  (Read 18387 times)

Hey guys, first I'm so glad TMK and the FF are still up. This place holds a special place in my heart, it was one of the first places I liked to hang online out when I was a crazy kid. Not many forums are still around from those days, at least none that I visited.

Anyway, I can't remember the exact date but sometime in the 2000s I was listening to WTMK very often and there was one song that I only heard once or twice that was this Country or Folk or Bluegrass kind of band playing a song about the Mario Bros. It was their own original song, it didn't reference any of the games' theme music. I only remember a bit of the lyrics:

"...he kicks the turtles, he stomps mushrooms ...I'm gonna kill Mario and his brother Luigi, I'll make those *******s pay for what they've done..."

When I first heard it I remember I emailed the band asking if they would send me the song. They encouraged me to buy the album instead. But I was a broke kid, and I couldn't convince my parents that I needed it. Now I've forgotten the band's name, the song name, and all I remember is that chunk of the lyrics and the melody. It still pops into my head every once in a while, and I try to find it but never have any luck.

Does anyone know this song?

Welcome back!

The song is "Italian Plumber Lawsuit" by The Woodbox Gang.

That's definitely it!

"My blood curdles when I think of those poor turtles" it's great to finally hear it again after only hearing it on WTMK years ago.

Thank you!
