"Really Loud Music" is an episode of season 3 of The Loud House.

Summary

Hoping to win a song-writing contest, Luna contemplates whether she should go with a song that's true to her sound or try to make something that the whole world will love.

Why It's Just The Right Amount Of Loud

  1. Since this is a musical episode, the entire Loud family get a musical number, and most of them are really fun and catchy, most notably Luna's "Play it Loud!".
    • The duet sang between Lori and Leni, "Lori2Leni", is very heartwarming.
  2. Lynn's song, "Get Pumped!" has an epic, heroic feel to it.
  3. Nice story about Luna getting worried about being herself when the judges force her use to use the stage name LuLu.
  4. Great cameo from the Casagrandes during "The Best Thing Ever" song.
  5. Incredible worldbuilding.
  6. Uses the "be yourself" moral rather well as Luna doubts that people will like her style of music, leading to her trying to be more like the type of singers people would listen to on the radio nowadays, but ends up doing the music she likes.
  7. Good voice acting and animation as usual.

The Only Bad Quality

  1. Depending on your view, some of the songs can be annoying.
    • Lucy's song (if you can even call it that) is really weak as she doesn't really sing.

Trivia

  • When Chris Savino first announced this episode, he announced it as a rock opera. A rock opera is when a majority of the dialogue (if not all the dialogue) is sung.

  • This is the first special episode where Sammie Crowley and Whitney Wetta aren't the writers, as well as the first special to be solely directed by Kyle Marshall.
  • Lincoln appears on the title card as the microphone Luna is screaming in.
  • In the original storyboard, the Casagrande kids (sans Carlitos) weren't originally going to appear in the Great Lakes City town square, as it was originally going to be a group of random civilians. Miguel Puga also confirmed that the reason why one of them is wearing a mask is that it's a reference to New York City and how some people wear crudely made Mickey Mouse costumes.
  • This episode takes place after "L is for Love", as it is revealed that Leni is dating Chaz.
    • However, Season 5's "Undercover Mom" implies that she has broken up with Chaz, as she has a crush on a boy with cowlicks.

    • In the Latin American Spanish dub, half of the characters that appeared with dialogues, in this case, Lincoln, Lori, Leni, the twins, and Rita, changed their voices in the moment of performing their songs. However, Luan, Lynn, Lucy, Lisa, and Lynn Sr. have their normal voices when performing their songs.
  • Doug Rockwell played a caricature character of himself in the episode while Michelle Lewis was played by a different actress. According to Doug in an interview on the Loud Crowd podcast, both he and Michelle had to audition for the roles despite the characters being themselves and Michelle did not play her character because she was unable to convey the personality needed for the character.
  • Hops, Izzy, Bitey, El Diablo, Gary, and Fangs were the only members of the Loud household not seen dancing to "The Best Thing Ever". Similarly, the members of the Santiago/Casagrande household not seen dancing to "The Best Thing Ever" were the adult family members, the pets, and Carlitos.
