Battle of the Bands/Transcript


  • Billy's dad has the same face-paint and stuff of Gene Simmons of the rock band KISS, while Billy had a Red-haired wig and a blue and white face like Marilyn Manson.
  • When Billy's Dad says, "Join me, and we can rule the rock as father and son!"
    • This dialog is based on the Star Wars movie, "The Empire Strikes Back", when Darth Vader confesses to be Luke's father, and asks Luke to join him on the Dark Side : "Join me, and we can rule the galaxy as father and son"
