First of all special thanks to @shintsukimi205 for letting me use his poster as both inspiration for the song and the cover art for it. The full picture can be seen here:

Second of all I'm not gonna lie, this is the first I ever heard of @piconjo. I knew he was related to Pico and Newgrounds but up until l shintsukimi205 told me about him I had no idea who this user was or the character he inspired. So after hearing about him I thought why not?

While from what I've heard he's often portrayed as a villain, the picture I've viewed here, which seemed to be inspired also by the Matrix, made him seem like an Anti-hero. So I did my song around that. The picture itself shows the aftermath of a battle between him and his archenemies The Toadies. So I got to thinking since the bodycount on said picture is an all time high, how would one prepare to suit up and what kind of music would be playing in the background. Taking some inspiration from the Newgrounds Rumble Theme song of his name I made a fast paced punk based rock song that I hope fits well within his character. Enjoy.

I really like how the intro is just this banging drum line and then the bass comes in and sounds really video game like and the timbre is just like perfectly crispy. then the lead instrument makes it sound even more like perfect video game music but its strange, i dont know if the composition itself and speed makes it sound more like it would work in a video game or what, because after the second break when the instruments come back it seems more like I start to realize the do sound smooth like VSTs but theres some sort of classic style to it. it may be because the guitar comes in first in the second half instead of appearing when the track is peaking

Well when I was composing this I had no idea who Piconjo at the time was. A friend of mine filled me in on it and using his picture as the inspiration for it, I wanted to go a route different than what most people view Piconjo as. The majority see him as a villain, whilst this particular artist saw him as an Anti-Hero. So I figured this guy's supposed to be related to Newgrounds, related to Pico and that's been around since the late 90s. So I based it around that, this person was pretty much the Anti-Pico, so I gave him a song that pretty much summed up the Newgrounds Franchise as a whole. Somewhat, cheesy and comedic, but somewhat serious and a lot of action.

The fact that it may work as a video game song is a welcome surprise, because that's how Pico got started. So I figured Piconjo deserved the same treatment.
