4 Darude - Sandstorm

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

Guys, NEVER put in what song is in a YouTube video. It will just be Darude - Sandstorm! - Datguyisweird666

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

One day I picked up the guitar...
then walked to my brother and said
"ready for a dead meme? "
he said "..."
I said "okay here we go! Its Darude - Sandstorm" then mindlessly strummed as loud as I could then ran away
then he said "uh what? " - EliHbk
