A Year Since Friday

- -

It's Friday! But not just any Friday. Today is the one-year anniversary since the Queen of Music FAILs, Rebecca Black, graciously blessed YouTube with her music video "Friday." The Internet has never been the same since.

Relive the awe and wonder of the original video. Recall where you were and how you felt when its sweet music and sublime choreography first graced your senses. Then scroll through our scrapbook of favorite "Friday" moments and view the homages that others have made to the music that changed our lives forever.

The tribal choruses and close-up shots of JUSTICE in the first ten seconds might make you think you're about to watch another Kony 2012 video. Nope! Just two rich white girls "singing" in what might be the worst music video in recent memory. They don't use much autotune, but I almost wish they did.

Sonic Youth: Worse than Rebecca Black? Bested by the two-man Black Keys? Or is a smug 13-year-old boxed in by his fetish for chords and intonation?
