Ink or Sink
Like most Squid Squad music, Ink or Sink features a blend of rock and electronic music, starting with an intro that places emphasis on the synthesizers and guitars, before moving to a section with alternating vocals in the Inkling language. During the chorus, the song abruptly switches to heavy metal, before switching back after looping. It is one of the five battle songs released with Splatoon at launch, and like all battle songs, it has a random chance of being played during online matches. It can also be heard in Squid Beatz, and it is included in Splatune.
Through the fictional interview contained in the Splatune booklet, it was revealed that Ink or Sink was the first song Squid Squad wrote after Splattack!, and features MURASAKI using his many spines as sticks on the drums.
In the Super Smash Bros. series
