Michael Guy Bowman:

"Sburban Jungle" finally comes into its own with its full reveal after being on the shelf for months. That we didn't delay the thing further amazes me considering the scale of the story, although I'm still indebted to Andrew for making the animated sequence which the song accompanied especially iconic. Who doesn't love the picture of Rose making her incredibly stylized jump to catch the bottle during the piano break?

Michael Guy Bowman: (Bowmantown Discord, excerpt)

wow guys, i mean i know sburban jungle kind of wedged itself into the lore of homestuck but it's cool to hear how much it means to you guys

it was probably the first "full" song written for the project, andrew told us to do loops at the beginning thinking all the flashes would be loops. the short version was written as a loop, but then the loading screen ended. i wrote out a "full" version to give it a tag and andrew loved it so much he decided to sit on it, so the full version was ready to go as early as August 2009 but didn't end up in the comic until 2010

Michael Guy Bowman: (YouTube description, excerpt)

The theme song of #Homestuck, first appearing as an excerpt on page 137 and then later in full on page 1149 ([S] Enter). The full song was originally released by What Pumpkin on Homestuck Vol. 4 on April 13, 2010.
