Sweet Victory by drfsupercenter published on 2012/08/18 01:54:31 +0000 This song was undoubtedly made famous by SpongeBob SquarePants, in the episode "Band Geeks." For years, I was wondering where the song came from, as there's no way the producers of SpongeBob would be rock musicians. It is performed by David Glen Eisley, featuring a guitar solo by Bob Kulick. Nickelodeon conveniently left that out of the credits entirely. The track actually came from Associated Production Music, a company who caters ONLY to producers of TV shows and similar, and sells licenses on a per-use basis. Just to get one piece of the song would cost almost $500. The album that this track comes from is called American Games. I've obtained the full-length, uncut track from "MyAPM", a free-to-use Flash-based site where you can "audition" the tracks. By doing a bit of URL snooping I found the original mp3 file and downloaded it. This upload is untouched from that, so if you click Download, you can have the best quality of this track physically available without being an APM customer. I know it's not great, it's only 128kbps... but that's what they had. Thanks for listening! Also, yes, I know SpongeBob's "The Yellow Album" features this track. That is a cut version that only has the one verse, still, and just features a longer instrumental... complete with annoying sound effects.
