Ink or Sink is a song performed by Squid Squad.


Ink or Sink is one of the five multiplayer songs released with Splatoon at launch. Like all battle songs, it has a random chance of being played during online matches. 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.

In the Super Smash Bros. series
