The Internet’s favorite song, “Friday,” gets re-imagined by a Bob Dylan impersonator. I’m now holding my breath for the “I’m Zack” remix.
“It ain’t me, babe.” – Bob Dylan

“Bob Dylan? Never heard of it.” -Rebecca Black
Pretty sure the chorus of My Back Pages will make the poor girl’s head explode.
Nothing to add. Solid work all around
Gotta have my bowl is RIGHT!
So guys the more I think about Rebbecca Black the worse I feel, I mean it’s so rare for teenage girls to actually be teenage girls and be dorky, I’m sure some of us either did, or were capable of, making something just as bad when we were her age
I kind of feel bad for her too. If any of my fake news casts from ages 9-12 got onto the internet I’d be mortified. But I’m pretty sure that she’ll probably get a contract with Disney before this whole thing is up.
I am so glad the internet was still dark and scary and not as accessible in my formidable years. 13 year old me would make “It’s Zack” look like Ok, computer.
I hope Rebecca Black becomes a cautionary tale for untalented teens wanting fame. She is our tribute, our Wicker Man if you will.
I think you all are forgetting that an actual record label put out Rebecca Black. Its not like she uploaded this on to You Tube from her home computer. With that said, I have listened to “Fried Eggs” atleast three times today.
My understanding of the situations (which comes from a vancouver newspaper website I looked at yesterday) is that the ‘record label’ that released this video is a company that rich parents pay to have their kids flown out to california, record a song, get it auto-tuned all to hell and then make a professional looking video for it. So to sum up, I dont fell sorry for the rich girl…
I’m thinking it might all be a front for that mysterious rapper who appears in almost EVERY one of those girls’ videos. Nothing kickstarts a legitimate career in hip hop like appearing in dozens of tween videos about homework and pogs.
Also, almost all the videos have at least one kid in braces…good to see ARK music factory isn’t bracist.
Come senators, congressmen
Please heed the call
Don’t stand in the doorway
Don’t block up the hall
For he that gets hurt
Will be he who didn’t get down on Friday
(which seat will I take?)
I ain’t gonna work on Becky’s farm no more
No, I aint gonna work on Becky’s farm no more
Well, I wake up on a Friday
Fold my hands and pray for rain
She just won’t pick a seat
While I’m drivin’, it’s insane
It’s a shame she asks for fun, then asks for more.
I ain’t gonna work on Maggie’s farm no more.
Boo. Real Dylan got in the way or fake Dylan at the end.
How many days in a week go by
Before we can get to the end?
And how many seats can one car have
Before I can cruise with my friends?
Yes how many notes can one girl sing
Before autotune helps them bend?
The answer my friend, is going to get me hits
The answer is going to make me rich
This rivals Bruce Springsteen and Faux Neil Young signing “Whip My Hair Back and Forth” as the greatest moment in music history.
We all remember Bob Dylan did that Christmas record right? Right?
I’m just saying…”impersonator”…You don’t trick me Dylan, not again!!!!
Yo yo yo…Jenna Rose has got somethin’ to say bout this
Is it just me or is this version pretty sweet? Partying partying YEAH.
So Rebecca Black’s song and video hit the Internet and became a part of the popular consciousness. There’s a lot to mock about this song, true, but as a party anthem for teens, it’s perfectly acceptable and only slightly more vapid than what’s already on the radio.
Yet mocked it is. If mocked by teens who are into metal or rap or alternative, that’s one thing, but this is being mocked by adults.
Adults, this song is not for you. That’s pretty clear. Watch tsunami damage and cat videos, adults. Listen to the Foo Fighters or Mumford and Sons or whatever adults are listening to these days.
