Each member was hand-selected by Doctor Sung from the far reaches of the multiverse.[1][2] They crash-landed on earth in 2007, ruining their ship’s hyperdrive and effectively stranding themselves in Halifax, Nova Scotia [3][4][5][6]. In 2012, they relocated to Toronto, Ontario where they have recorded a majority of their material[1][2][6]. Prior to their crash, TWRP was traveling through space on a mission to eliminate boredom and sadness from the universe, but when they witnessed rampant boredom across Atlantic Canada, they decided to stay[7]. Their arch-nemesis, Doc Boredom, often makes appearances at their shows but is routinely foiled[1]. TWRP also battles against The Haters, “sworn enemies of the fun who are bent on hater-ing them and un-groovifying the world at large”[8]. To aid them in their mission, TWRP created the Mobile Fun Unit, a “battery-powered, dumbed-down version of their typical set up used to wage guerrilla warfare against boredom” on the streets of Toronto[5][1][7].

On several occasions, the members of TWRP have mentioned that they are immortal beings who have traveled through space and time[1][6]. Having been experienced time travelers, TWRP has revealed some secrets about the future of humanity. For example, in the 2016 US Presidential Election, Canadian rock band Nickelback wins the election and becomes President of the United States[9]. It is worth noting that, in the future, a band with a similar sounding name, Nickelbalk, owns the Canadian province of Alberta and has become its own county led by Chald Krunger. The nation of Alberta exclusively listens to Trumpet Rock, one of the three genres of music which TWRP hold disdain towards. The other two genres are Adult Techno and Scrandiddly. Commander Meouch compares the future of humanity to that of Biff’s timeline from the 1989 movie, Back to the Future Part II[1].

Despite the extraordinary circumstances of their existence, it has been confirmed that TWRP has human dads[4].

TWRP has, on several occasions, denied allegations that they wear costumes. In an interview with Music She Blogs, they explain that “in the unbounded multiverse each and every possible reality exists simultaneously… and we just happen to come from a reality where dudes look like us”[5]. They have admitted that their Armor was created by their human friend and artist, Keith Sheppard[10][11]. Their armor and helmets may serve functional purposes. On Doctor Sung's personal Tumblr page (inactive since 2012), he stated "The truth is, my pylonic headgear actually acts as a mojo-inhibitor - without it my libido would be so destructively powerful that a single thrust of my pelvis would shred the fabric of reality, causing the formation of an all-consuming supermassive [sic] black hole, and the end of life as you know it"[12]. In a 2018 AMA, TWRP described their appearance out of their suits as having "no distinguishing features whatsoever" and that they are "four pink fleshy balloons, completely indistinguishable one from the other.[13]"

Origins of the Name Edit

The origin of the name, Tupper Ware Remix Party, is conflicted. In a 2012 interview with Music She Blogged, the band stated that the words Tupper, Ware, Remix, and Party were the first four words spoken by the drummer (probably Havve Hogan) when they asked themselves “What the fuck are we going to call ourselves”[5]. This account is contradicted in a 2015 interview with Dave Hurlow of Scope Magazine, where Doctor Sung claims he chose the name because he liked the way it sounded, even though the words had no meaning to him at the time[2]. This account is also called into question when, in a 2016 Reddit AMA, they claim that Tupper Ware Remix Party was the result of putting their names into Google and translating it into English[10]. In a 2017 Reddit AMA, it is explained that "Sung and Hogan met at drum camp (millions of years ago), and became fast friends. One night, after watching Interstella 5555 high af and eating an entire bag of Riesen, the two pals joked about making a ridiculous band. Literally, the first name that came to mind, with absolutely zero thought or hesitation, was Tupper Ware Remix Party" [14]. In a 2018 AMA, TWRP revealed that their band name, stage names, appearances and many early decisions were made arbitrarily. To avoid legal issues, they prefer to go by TWRP [15].
