"Boom" was featured in the episode Bret Gives Up the Dream and is performed by Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement. The song also appears on their self-titled album.


Boom is an inner monologue sung by Bret while conversing with Coco, the attractive new sign holder. The song is performed in a electronic/reggae style similar to that of Jamaican artist Shaggy. The lyrics centre around his attraction to Coco but are distinguished by the fact that nearly all nouns are replaced by the word "boom". The accompanying video features Bret and Coco dancing in front of an animated background and has strong similarities to the Black Eyed Peas' "Hey Mama" video. Also featured prominently during this sequence is a 1980s Casio DG20 digital guitar.


Lyrics for Boom from Bret Gives Up the Dream

Oh my God. She’s so hot. She’s so flippin’ hot. She’s like a curry. / I want to tell her how hot she is, but she’ll think I’m being sexist. / She’s so hot she’s making me sexist. / Bitch. / I think I need a 1983 Casio DG-20 electric guitar / Set to electric mandolin / Some drums / Yeah / Hear me now!

I see you with a sign / I want to boom like it’s never been done / Bust moves like the click boom of a gun / My beats stay locked and my eyes are zooming / My feet start tweaking and my body’s booming / The first day of boom and the flowers are blooming / Booty boom bass and the party is booming / Boom ba-boom like a rocket taking off to the moon / Boom boom like a bride and boom-ah

See you shaking that boom boom / See you looking at my boom boom / See you want some boom boom / It’s clear it’s boom time / Boom boom

Let me buy you a boom boom / You order a fancy boom / You like boom / And I like boom / Enough small boom let’s boom the boom-ah

Fast-forward, selecta

Now we’re rolling on a boom boom / Riding to my private room / And we boom whats boom and we both assume / We’re gonna boom boom boom ‘til the break of boom

Who’s the boom king? / Who? / I’m the boom king. / What? / Who’s the boom king? / Tell me now. / I’m the boom king / He’s the boom king

My phone is beeping, it’s B-boom Boom / He’s back from ten years doom and gloom / He said he had his boom chopped off in the boom / But the crazy boom still loves to boom / Unzip the boom and the lens goes boom / Your b-boom drops / Ba-boom ba-boom boom / We both get freaky and my boom gets leaky / Then we boom boom boom boom / Boom boom boom

Who’s the boom king? / Who? / I’m the boom king / What? / Who’s the boom king? / Hah! / I’m the boom king / Bret’s the boom king
