I've Been Delayed

I've Been Delayed is a song that was played at the igloo room in Penguin Chat and the Night Club in Penguin Chat 3. It is performed by TAS1000. It's the oldest music track in Club Penguin.

At their facebook page they say: Anders has found out that Matt Krysko has given Lance Priebe(co-founder of Club Penguin) permission to use TAS 1000 songs in RocketSnail (Lance's company) games. -Lewis

It also says: I have just been notified that 'I've Been Delayed' has been re-added to Club Penguin (formerly, Penguin Chat 3), for user igloos in-game. Great stuff. -Lewis


These are the lyrics for the original song; the version played in the Night Club during Penguin Chat 3 and the new lyrics for the Igloo Music released in 2013.

TAS 1000

TAS 1000 was the band that made the song I've Been Delayed. Their only album contained 12 songs, along with "I've Been Delayed". The band was formed by Matt Krysko, the son of the Club Penguin co-founder, Dave Krysko.

TAS1000 (2002-2005) was an experimental music collective. The band members lived in Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada. Their music was based on a used answering machine they bought, which was called "Sanyo Telephone Answering System 1000", and contained an old cassette that the previous owner forgot.

They took parts from the cassette, and combined them with their own music, in order to create songs. The band made their last performance in 2006, and at the end, they threw the TAS1000 machine out of the stadium, meaning that the band was over.
