    • Troy: What do you say, dog? You ready to get this party started? You ready to burn this mother down? Up jump.. the boogie?

      Troy knows his music as he quickly goes through heavy metal, disco and hip-hop in his party references.
      "You ready to get this party started" directly quote from and is the title of the heavy metal band KoRn's song from the 1999 album Issues.
      His disco referring "..burn this mother down" is an almost direct quote from the title cut of The Trammps 1976 album Disco Inferno.
      And finally "Up jump.. the boogie" directly quote from and refers to The Sugarhill Gang's 1979 single Rapper's Delight, which is considered the song popularizing hip-hop in both US and the rest of the world.
