Cartman's musical tastes run toward progressive and arena rock in general and maudlin power ballads in particular. " Cartman's Mom is Still a Dirty Slut " shows for the first time that Cartman has the uncontrollable urge to finish singing Styx 's " Come Sail Away " whenever he hears any part of the song, which he can do, under pressure, in 27 seconds (possibly a sign that he has a very minor case of OCD based on the fact that he mentioned it was not only songs he had to finish). In " Kenny Dies ", Cartman sings " Heat of the Moment " to the United States House of Representatives convincing them to vote in favor of stem cell research. Cartman also appears to enjoy teen pop, as demonstrated in his Britney Spears dance sequence in " AWESOM-O ". He also quotes, "Haha charade you are" from Pink Floyd's song, Pigs (Three Different Ones). During a scene in " Whale Whores " Cartman sings the Lady Gaga song " Poker Face " while playing the video game Rock Band with Kenny as the drummer. This song was later released as a real downloadable single for the game.
