Over 100 million views on youtube. That's kind of incredible and I sorta don't hate the song as much the more I hear it. If Black doesn't get a deal from this and put out a decent bubble gum pop album, then all is wrong with the world.

You certainly have a different view of the grand scheme of things than I do

I find the original melody, in isolation, quite infectious. It's the awesomely cretinous lyrics, and the thought that today's awful, stupid culture so quickly propels untalented idiots into celebrity and wealth, that makes the whole thing so insufferable.

America has always made untalented people famous in the music world so what's new about this? There are one of these every year now...and she deserves at least some money after the pummeling that she has endured from the internet world.

I wonder how many hipsters would have picked this up on vinyl if they had put out a special edition on record store day?

Some other interesting parodies/offshoots:

The actual recording digitally slowed to 5x (Quite ambient, though):

Isn't it? It's like the guy wanted to see how many shred techniques he could cram into the song and still keep it recognizably Friday

Credit where it's due, he has serious chops

Pretty cool and catchy version but I wonder why the video is reversed?

That's really cool, and just goes to show that what ruins metal is the shitty vocals.

Seriously. That's some real talent and artistry there, but if it were a metal song it would have truly awful vocals accompanying it, making it unlistenable.

because all metal bands have shitty vocals.

edit: Also, that dude's Zelda cover is fucking epic.

113 million views is crazy, I think I watched it at like 80 million in the early stages of the thread. Also, stupid question, but do hotlinking views also get counted or is it only views from the youtube website?

Don't forget five solid minutes of blastbeat drumming.

Well, after 167 million views, it's all over.

http://mashable.com/2011/06/16/friday-gone/

It’s a black day for Friday fans, as Rebecca Black’s “Friday” has been taken down due to a “copyright claim by Rebecca Black.”

...

The video, which had been viewed more than 167 million times, does have a history of disappearing briefly from YouTube. On Monday, it was briefly made available as a YouTube rental, costing $2.99 to watch, before returning to its normal free state.
