The Lyrics

Hey Mythbusters, can I
Hey Mythbusters, can I
Eat pop rocks and drink Sprite?
Should I try?
No-oh-ohh

After the break, they’ll take
And give us all the answers
To the questions that we find hard
I’m wondering, could I
Use a jetpack to fly?
But if I just sit tight,
That myth will get denied

Hey Mythbusters, can I
Hey Mythbusters, can I
Live if ice hits my eye?
Should I try?
No-oh-ohh
(ohh)

They like to crash, and blast
A homemade tree-trunk cannon
But it won’t last, it’s busted now
And I’m wondering why
Toast falls on the buttered side
And onions make me cry
They help all of mankind

Hey Mythbusters, can I
Hey Mythbusters, can I
Punch a shark in the eye?
Should I try?
No-oh-ohh

What's the myth that’s next
For those guys, Adam and Jamie?
I will sit down every week and watch it
And right now it’s ‘can a ray of light
be used to sink a boat?’
Can a playing card be used to break somebody’s skin?
And I’m wondering if I should do that
They tell us not to before every episode
They won't ever know if I just found out on my own

Hey Mythbusters, can I
Hey Mythbusters, can I
Use plywood to take flight?
Should I try?
No-oh-ohh

Hey Mythbusters, can I
Hey Mythbusters, can I
Break glass if I sing high?
Should I try?
No-oh-ohh

I've watched the show a couple of times but, it left me disappointed. Your parody did not. 555

ABC The 555's 'BUST" out on this bit of brilliance!

It's not bad, I like the idea and the OS was kinda fun--I had a little trouble following the pacing though--that's my only real complaint, that and no out the ballpark lines, but still pretty good
Matthias - August 10, 2010 - Report this comment
Very fun! I love the show! Are all of these things you referenced in here real episodes? Because that would be cool if they were.

Pretty cute, went well with the OS. Too bad I never saw the show, it would mean more to me otherwise.

Thanks everyone, and yes Matt, all of the things in here were actually covered in episodes.

(ABC M & N) Well-done, and strangely enough, I remember every stunt in the parody (I can recite from memory a lot of 2007-08 Cash Cab, Dirty Jobs and Deadliest Catch, too.). Must be from all the time I spent vegetating in front of the Discovery Channel after my older sister's untimely death. 555 myths busted to smithereens.

(ABC M/N) Love the show, and so does my bro and dad! We would watch it every Sunday morning while eating breakfast. Enjoyed most episodes whether it be folding the biggest piece of paper, or making the 'creamer cannon'. You sure pulled a 'stunt' with this satire!

I'd love to do what these guys get to do, or at least most of it. They do a lot of work to pull off a stunt to bust a myth. Great parody about a fine show.

(ABC5-MN) Nothing really fantastic, but still a nice little tribute to a show that I really need to watch. 555

I know the song from Guitar Hero, AFI are one of the few emo bands I like. I've caught Mythbusters a couple of times, enough to get the gist of the parody. 555 to you, my good man.
