Top 10 Songs that Became Memes

The Top Ten
1 Never Gonna Give You Up - Rick Astley Never Gonna Give You Up - Rick Astley Cover Art

*Looking at a beach
10 seconds later...
Never Gonna Give You Up, Never Gonna Let You Down, Never Gonna Say Goodbye, And Hurt You!

This meme will always be a classic to me

When music was good, back when Rick Astley was young. Also, the best meme in the world. And the best song in the world!

Never gonna give you up
Never gonna let you down
Never gonna run around and desert you

Was Awesome when it came out and Still Is. Great workout tune!

2 All Star - Smash Mouth All Star - Smash Mouth Cover Art

Okay, so when I was little and actually liked to eat at McDonald's, they came out with Happy Meals that had Kidz Bop CDs. Being a little kid and not knowing better, I loved my CD and they had the song All Star, which was the best thing I had ever heard. I sang along to it whenever I heard it in the store. However, my CD is now missing and I had not heard the song in forever until I discovered the meme. To this day, All Star is one of my favorite songs of all time.

So many All Star memes now. Yeah and Somebody Once Told Me The World Was Macaroni is a meme remake of this song lol!

Somebody once told me the world is gonna roll me. I ain't the sharpest tool in the shed.

Somebody once told me the world was gonna roll me

3 We are Number One - LazyTown

TheTopTens but every time someone votes for something We are Number One plays.

Easily the greatest song ever written. Brings tears to my eyes every time I hear it.

This song holds a higher status than all songs... R.I.P. Stefan Karl

This song really may save a man's life, go on Robbie Rotten!

4 Darude - Sandstorm Darude - Sandstorm Cover Art

This song is an ultimate weapon for trolls who were asked by someone who wanted to know the title of the song.

The meme you see every time when someone asks the name of the song. They get the answer Darude - Sandstorm.

Every time a guy questions what song or game it is, please expect for a Darude - Sandstorm

Guys, NEVER put in what song is in a YouTube video. It will just be Darude - Sandstorm!

5 Africa - Toto Africa - Toto Cover Art

Art is a craft that is meant to stimulate the senses. Art can be divided into pure and free art (referring only to beauty) and in bound art. Non-aesthetic purposes also apply in bound art, such as crafts and eloquence.

I bless the memes down in Africa.

Never knew this was a meme, just knew it as an amazing song

Hear the drums echoing tonight

6 Bring Me to Life - Evanescence Bring Me to Life - Evanescence Cover Art

I've seen this meme on youtube where this song was taped over an episode of Spongebob where Patrick is choking and gasping for air. It was actually really weird but still a really good meme.

Evanescence will always be better than most if not, all of the mainstream artists

Hello, why isn't this in top 3? This is the only music with female voice and it's cool. Say it loudly: WAKE ME UP INSIIDE!

I don't see why no one seems to care for this song. It's a masterpiece.

7 Ocean Man - Ween Ocean Man - Ween Cover Art

Ocean Man. Take me by the hand lead me to the land that you understand. Ocean Man the voyage to the corner of the globe is a real trip. Ocean Man the secrets of a tan man imbide by the sand. Soaking up the thirst of the land. Ocean Man can you see the wonders of amazement at the overman...

This song really goes with every ending scene/end credits sequence, doesn't it?

Ocean Man take me the hand take me to the land that you understand

If only they had this in Creature From the Black Lagoon...

8 Roundabout - Yes Roundabout - Yes Cover Art

I love this song. Without a doubt the saddest case of a good song being ruined by a mediocre meme.

One of the few songs on this list (in my opinion) that was already a good song before the memery started.

I'm surprised kids nowadays even know who Yes are.

The acoustic guitar part in the beginning is very good.

9 The Sound of Silence - Simon & Garfunkel The Sound of Silence - Simon & Garfunkel Cover Art

This is probably every kid who has a Youtube channel and loses lots of subs.

Seriously, why do old songs have to be memes? Memes belong to modern day songs.

Hello, darkness my old friend...

Hello darkness my old friend 0.0

10 Dragostea Din Tei - O-Zone Dragostea Din Tei - O-Zone Cover Art

I love this song (not just because of the memes).

This was one of the first songs to become a meme
It's the Numa Numa song

I knew this song before it became a meme.

The Contenders
11 Gangnam Style - Psy Gangnam Style - Psy Cover Art

I misheard that as "Counter-Strike"

This one is funny

Oppa Gangnam style

12 Shooting Stars - Bag Raiders Shooting Stars - Bag Raiders Cover Art

One of the best memes of 2016. We actually did a video contest at my school last year where we several groups had to make a music video and we used this song for part of it and even did video editing to make it look like the protagonist was floating through space.

Even though the memes were great, I love this song.

This song is unironically amazing

This was never funny

13 Let It Grow - The Lorax Let It Grow - The Lorax Cover Art

I am Glemeno,
I am old, my hair is very white.
But I remember that there are trees everywhere!
And no one needs to pay for the wind...
So I said;
Let it grow!

Let it grow, but every word is replaced with the first time the word was said in the movie.

You don't know me, but my name's Cy. I'm just the O'Hare delivery guy. But I think that's trees might be worth a try. So I say, let it grow!

People are making parodies of this song on YouTube.

14 Snow Halation - Muse (Love Live!)

Actually a god damn good song and you cannot deny it.

Love lives inside the snow

Setsunasa ni wa namae o tsukeyou ka "Snow halation"

15 Boulevard of Broken Dreams - Green Day Boulevard of Broken Dreams - Green Day Cover Art

I walk a lonely street, because everyone else broke themselves in there dreams!

American idiots walk on the Boulevard of Broken Dreams only during the holidays.

This is such a great song though.

You Spin Me Right Round, Right Round, Like A Record Baby, Right Round!

The moment Chester Bennington committed suicide, the meme and all the jokes this song made died with the singer on July 20th.
