This Might Be the Next Rebecca Black, and We're Not Just Saying That

Thanks to the horrible songwriting, the mercilessly autotuned vocals and merciless synths, the tacky costume and set designs, and the creepy sexualization of 12-year-olds (yes, she is 12 years old), this video has already racked in well over half a million views in three days. Edit: WHAT YEAR IS IT

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.

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?
