STORY OF SONG
2011 was undoubtedly the year of “Party Rock Anthem”, a song produced by the duo LMFAO (RedFoo, SkyBlu) together with GoonRock and Lauren Bennet, which was shot on all the radios of the moment; the release of “Party Rock Anthem” was now known to have shaped new musical records, but after 7 years it seems that the song of the Duo LMFAO does not want to be forgotten.
The 2018 for “Party Rock Anthem” was the year where he reached his third album of Diamante, in USA. The year in which it has sold over 20 million units, the year in which it was elected as the best hit in the world by the “Billboard 60th anniversary” and not only, with over 1.5 billion views on Youtube, the song is becoming (again) a world-class meme. Starting from September 2018 a video appeared on the net showing the “Party Rock Anthem” video clip dancing on the notes of another song with the same BPM (130) of Party Rock, the video generated a chain reaction on the Social Network, and many people created video mixes with songs from the BPM similar to Party Rock and putting it on top of the Duo dance in the video; the extraordinary thing is that the dance of “Party Rock Anthem” is able to match almost all the songs, giving the feeling that the dance created by LMFAO for Party Rock Anthem, is actually a dance for songs with BPM close to 130. With this meme there are also little known old songs in the name, such as “September” or “Cotton Eye Joe” have become viral.
