I didn't think this was a transcription of porno music (see its use in the MST3K movie "Mitchell" et. al.) I always thought it was the sound of that energetic seventies "disco"-esque guitar riff that was used over a lot of the action scenes in TV and movies of the time (e.g., Dirty Harry). Porno music is that jazzy based "slow goove" music with the drum machines. I've seen cappers represent it by *cue porn groove*. I could be wrong, though. BitShifter 18:52, 14 June 2006 (UTC)

I believe it goes . . . ahem . . . both ways. The 'wokka chikka' is representative to the guitar sound made in the music of the opening credits of Mitchell. Frank Zappa penned the sound as 'wakka jawakka', which he named a excellent (as most Zappa albums are) album after. I am not a guitar player so perhaps there someone like Beckett can let us know what technique is used to make the wokka-chikka/wakka-jawakka sound. Arch 20:29, 14 June 2006 (UTC)

In their 70s hey-day, pornos commonly used the Wokka-chikka kind of music. This IS the slow groove music. It's not a fast-moving wokkachikka. It's changed over time because, well, they're pornos. They use whatever's cheapest and easiest to get. When we ref it, we're referring to the corny segue music that would signal there's a sex scene coming up, normally after some really cheezy setup. --Indomitus 00:43, 16 June 2006 (UTC)

Just found a case of MST using it in the porno music sense - in the short What to do on a Date (503), after the narrator says "...if you plan for what she'd enjoy" Tom sings "waka chicka wung chick-a-wang" (approximatley, it definetly starts with wocka-chicka). My sense of it is that the common usage is to imply pr0n, that it predates MST (as per Zappa's transcription above), and that it may alos be used to just parody '70's music as in Mitchell! But, since we can't hear the music while capping, I suspect 9 times out of 10, it's the former meaning here. --GersonK 21:29, 16 June 2006 (UTC)
