Patrick and SpongeBob go to a comic book store, and Patrick sees an ad for a mail-in offer promising to record a song. He takes SpongeBob's comic book money to enter, and submits an entry called "I Wrote This." The song does not make much sense and it is so awful that the paper smells terrible when he submits it, and the band died from recording it. When the two listen to the song, it turns out to be so bad that it destroys SpongeBob's pineapple. Patrick had a flashback when he recited the poem: "Roses are blue. Violets are red. I have to go to the bathroom." The gym teacher told him that he had told him repeatedly that it was gym class, so he had the class throw dodgeballs at him. SpongeBob however enforces to Patrick that it is the greatest song ever, so he and Patrick try to get the song on the radio.
They are immediately kicked out by the radio station, so, finding a different method, they climb up the Radio Tower and use gum to stick a record player to the top of the antenna. The song is heard throughout the town, which causes rioting, breakups and head explosions, the town formed an angry mob, headed by Fred and protested. They chase SpongeBob and Patrick down and Patrick starts to sing the song in front of everyone until his old gym teacher arrives, saying that Patrick never learned his lesson, which leads to the two getting pelted by dodgeballs and the episode ends by the scene.

The scene where the gears in Patrick's head turn was previously seen in "Patrick SmartPants."
In real life, a record player stuck to the top of a radio tower with gum would not broadcast music.
Patrick's song should have been on a CD, not a record; records (though for nostalgia purposes is still in limited production) went obsolete in the early 1990s.
When SpongeBob asks if Gary owns a dodgeball, Gary meows to say no, but Gary rolls his eyes when he meowed, assuming he does own a dodgeball.
When SpongeBob and Patrick climb up the radio tower, the space object that pass them is Sputnik 1, Russia's and the world's first artificial satellite, which in fact launched on October 4, 1957 and burned up on February 4, 1958, so it is impossible for Sputnik 1 to appear in the episode.
The radio mast on the radio station looked exactly like Warsaw Radio Mast in Poland, which was the world's tallest structure until its collapse in 1991.
