Information on the rappers

The MythBusters are a science entertainment television group, consisting of special effects experts Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage. Originating in 2003, the Mythbusters use elements of the scientific method to test the validity of myths, rumors, movie scenes, adages, Internet videos, and news stories. The show is one of the oldest and most popular shows on the Discovery Channel currently in production. Alongside them were Kari Byron, Tory Belleci, and Grant Imahara, until they left the show in August 2014. The show ended on March 5th, 2016.

Verse 1:

Wow, your raps are just too wack to handle!

Let's do it like we do on the Discovery Channel.

Your science is preposterous; the opposite of competent process,

And in this episode, we'll give you a synopsis,

Starting with the vacuum cleaners strapped up on your back!

It's a fact: positrons don't react like that!

You built a laser grid with no safety switch,

And Walter Peck was right: that's some shady shit!

Good thing you work in a firehouse, 'cause you just got burned.

You are poor scientists, and that's confirmed.

Verse 2:

Ghosts aren't real, but it should be said.

It's time to bring the B-Team back from the dead.

Hey! Things are getting scary when Tory, Grant, and Kari

Come harder than Ray when that ghost popped his cherry!

We reject your flows and substitute our own!


Why'd you stop? I couldn't think of a rhyme.

Well, just say the first thing that pops into your mind!

During the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man's verse:

Blaze chumps and flip Kari butter-side up! (Hey!)

Show these dweebs how to rock a beret! (Hey.)

Scrapped lyrics

Wow, your raps are like your sequel: too whack to handle.

Your raps are like your sequel: just too whack to handle.

You're something strange and you don't look good,

You've killed more people than you've saved in your neighborhood.

You say you get the girls but I'm not jealous,

Your girl's a demon dog who moonlights as a cellist.

We're the lyrical colossus urban-legend bawses!

We're kinda like the streams 'cause you better not cross us.


  • The Mythbusters are the first group rappers to rap against a group of rappers differing in size from their own.
  • This marks the fifth time Nice Peter and EpicLLOYD rap alongside each other.
    • However, they both rapped for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, but Peter wasn't in costume. If this is counted, then this was their sixth time.
  • They were among the first characters other than Adolf Hitler to have appeared in a season trailer, along with two of the Ghostbusters.
    • However, the Mythbusters' faces were seen in the trailer, whereas the Ghostbusters' appearance was limited to merely their feet and a hand.
    • In the trailer, Hyneman was shorter than Savage, which is accurate to real life. However, in the battle itself, Savage was shorter than Hyneman.
  • The real Mythbusters posted a picture of Peter and Lloyd as them on their Facebook page before the battle was released, making them the seventh and eighth people to respond to themselves in an ERB.
  • They are the first group to be backed up by another rapper, let alone another group.
  • They are the first group to have a female rapper.
  • They are the first group from a non-fictional television show to rap.
  • With five people, they are the group with the highest number of people.
  • They are the first rappers/group of rappers to destroy their own location.
