Demo version

"Robot Riot" is a song sung by Love Händel near the end of Phineas and Ferb The Movie: Across the 2nd Dimension. It accompanies a montage of the ferocious clash between Doofenshmirtz 2's Norm Bot battalion attempting to seize control of Danville and the defending force led by Phineas and Ferb.

Lyrics

Danny: It's gonna be a mechanized mêlée
A bit of a big bot brawl
When we get through you're gonna know it's true
The more metallic they are the harder they fall
And don't mess with me 'cause I'm a whole lot of trouble
when I'm backed up against the wall

We're gonna kick some robot chassis
So you better tell your robot nation
To say a robot prayer, 'cause you better prepare
For an automaton annihilation

You think you're gonna take us down
Well, mechanical man you just try it
You gonna ride that rail out of town

This is a Robot Riot! (Robot Riot)

I think you know what I mean (Robot Riot)
This is a Robot Riot (Robot Riot)
I'm gonna break you down
And sell you for scrap metal (Robot Riot)
But I'll keep enough to build myself a trampoline
'Cause your momma was a blender
and your dad was just a washing machine

This is a Robot Riot!

I'm gonna rip you up, I'm gonna break you down
I'm gonna take you to a chop shop down town
You know that you'll be dreadin' this android Armageddon
I think you better check your fluids 'cause I know you're sweatin'
You know you're gonna lose and sing the robot blues
You'll blow a fuse and take a robot snooze
I will deactivate ya, because I kinda hate ya
Don't wanna beat around the bushes, gonna decimate ya

This is a Robot Riot! (Robot Riot)
Oh man it's on! (Robot Riot)
This is a robot riot (Robot Riot)
I'm gonna rip you up
and put you back together (Robot Riot)
In a new configuration just to mow my lawn
Danny and Bobbi: Cause your sister is a fridge,
and you know her light is always on

Danny: This is a Robot Riot!

Robot Riot Robot Riot (Look Out!)
Robot Riot Robot Riot

This is a Robot Riot! (Robot Riot)

You better listen up
I got some breaking news (Robot Riot)
I'm gonna melt you down and pour you on some baby shoes (Robot Riot)
I'm really on a mission
I call it demolition (Robot Riot)
And when I'm through you're gonna need more than a new transmission (This is a Robot Riot)
No matter how you strive
You're gonna take a dive (Robot Riot)
I'm gonna mess you up and devastate your hard drive (Robot Riot)
I'm gonna shut you down, I'm teaching you a lesson
Rip out your CPU and show it to you still processing

This is a Robot Riot!

I'm gonna rip you up, I'm gonna break you down (Robot Riot)
I'm gonna take you to a chop shop down town (Robot Riot)
You know that you'll be dreadin' this android Armageddon (Robot Riot)
I think you better check your fluids 'cause I know you're sweatin' (This is a Robot Riot)
You know you're gonna lose and sing the robot blues (Robot Riot)
You'll blow a fuse and take a robot snooze (Robot Riot)
I will deactivate ya, because I kinda hate ya (Robot Riot)
Don't wanna beat around the bushes, gonna decimate ya

This is a Robot Riot!
I'm gonna rip you up, I'm gonna break you down (Robot Riot)
Gonna take you to the chop shop down town (Robot Riot)

This is a Robot Riot!
I'm gonna rip you up, I'm gonna break you down (Robot Riot)
Gonna take you to the chop shop down town (Robot Riot)

This is a Robot Riot!
I'm gonna rip you up, gonna break you down (Robot Riot)
Gonna take you to the chop shop down town (Robot Riot)

This is a Robot Riot!
Gonna rip you up, gonna break you down (Robot Riot)
Gonna take you to the chop shop down town

This is a Robot Riot!

All right!

Background information

  • Jaret Reddick confirmed the song in a tweet on September 14, 2010.
  • The original demo was recorded lo-fi in Martin Olson's office at Disney using Garageband and no mics. Dan Povenmire sang the lead and Swampy Marsh, Martin Olson and Jaret Reddick played guitar and sang backups. The laughing at the end of the demo is that of Olson and Reddick. They found the fact that they stopped playing at exactly the same time rather amusing.
  • The song is performed by Jaret Reddick (as Danny) and Dan Povenmire makes the background chorus as Bobbi Fabulous.
  • The song is the 3rd longest original song, behind "Kick It Up A Notch", and "Summer Belongs to You".
  • This is the first song to begin with an extended version on a soundtrack.
  • The phrase "The more metallic they are, the harder they fall" is a reference to the common phrase "The bigger they are, the harder they fall."
  • Almost everything the boys have invented is used to fight the Norm bots in this song though appears from Season 1's "Rollercoaster" to Season 3's "The Belly of the Beast".
  • There is a game on the website called Robot Riot! (game).
  • This is one of two songs to mention a "washing machine" in the lyrics, the other being "Technology vs. Nature" from "Perry Lays an Egg".
  • This is the second song to have the word robot in the name ("Robot Rodeo" in the eponymous episode).
  • The DVD also has some sounds like for example during "Cuz' your mom was a blender" zoom can be heard.
  • In the Radio Disney version Doofenshmirtz's voice can be heard.
  • The song was played in Disney's Phineas and Ferb: The Best LIVE Tour Ever! while everyone waited for the show to start.

Dubbing

  • In the Greek dub of the movie, the song "Robot Riot" is called "Είμαι ο εξολοθρευτης", which literally means "I'm your Terminator".
  • In the Spanish version this song is call "Sublevados" (Rebels).
  • In the French version this song is called "Les robots sont en guerre" (Robots are at war).
  • In the Latin American dub, is called "Luchando con Robots" (Fighting with Robots). For unknown reasons, translation of the lyrics that only appear in the soundtrack and in the DVD are included, but only the half of a verse (from "You better listen up" to "...more than a new transmission", instead of repeating the "chop shop down town" lines).
