11 Viral Songs We Knew All The Words To Long Before YouTube Was A Thing (And Probably Still Know Now)

- Page 1

Growing up when the internet was just starting to get good was definitely an interesting time. Things were a heck of a lot different then they are now. We didn't have YouTube or Facebook to share these things, so you had to either forward it in an email or send it on MSN messenger.

Even though the methods of sharing weren't that plentiful, there still managed to be a bunch of viral songs that we all knew whether we wanted to or not. No matter how many times we saw them, they seemed to become embedded in our memories and probably still are today. Luckily they have all been transferred onto YouTube now, so we can still watch them!

How many of these do you recognize?

1. Peanut Butter Jelly Time

You might think that a video that contains nothing but a dancing banana would be boring and forgettable, but it's been over a decade and people are still singing it.

2. Trogdor

Trogdor was one of the greatest Strong Bad email episodes ever, and it still will get stuck in your head to this day. Strong Bad was too good to pick only one, so here's a bonus.

Bonus: Techno Song

If you claim you don't remember singing all the different parts with your friends you are lying.

3. Oogachaka Baby

Everyone remembers getting this video sent to them, it was so popular that it even made its way into Ally McBeal. That's pretty insane if you think about what it is.

4. Potter Puppet Pals: Mysterious Ticking Noise

Even if you didn't like the Harry Potter franchise, you could absolutely get on board with these ridiculous videos. This song still pops into my head every time I talking about Snape, Snape, Severus Snape, DUMBLEDORE!

5. Llama Song

It doesn't make and sense, and that's perfectly okay. Don't bother trying to explain it because no one ever will. Llama, Llama, Duck.

6. Badger Badger Badger

A seemingly infinite loop of Badgers will keep you entertained for roughly 15 seconds, and then you'll be a little bit annoyed that it's stuck in your head. Thought you could forget about it didn't you?

Those aren't the only videos you'll remember watching...

It's Been Over 20 Years Since 'Space Jam' Came Out, But What Ever Happened To The Monstars?

Since the Looney Tunes started, they have been able to bring together the entire world with their hilarious cartoons. Whether we were watching Bugs give a haircut, Wile E. Coyote chase the Roadrunner, or Sylvester go after Tweety, there were infinite possibilities and all were entertaining. But one story really beat out the rest as the most memorable, and that was Space Jam. You might not think that a silly 90s movie about basketball could top decades of cartoons, but guess what, it was pretty freakin' awesome if you ask me. Warner BrosSpace Jam came out in 1996 and it


8 Young Celebrities We Grew Up Watching Who Ended Up Behind Bars

You might think that growing up in the spotlight would be difficult, but you would hope that having money at a young age would help set you up for a successful future. As we've learned over the years, that is not always the case. As it turns out, being pushed into the spotlight and having people judge you while you go through puberty is apparently not all that good for you. Who would have guessed? Can you sense the sarcasm? Going through this intense scrutiny at such a young age isn't really that great, and not everyone handles it as


The 'Dawson's Creek' Cast Reunited And It'll Make You Wish You Could Go Back To Capeside

Dawson's Creek was one of the most iconic shows on television in the 90s. It was basically all of our first glimpses of what teen drama looked like, and even though our lives were nothing like those of Capeside, we sure felt like we were a part of it. Personally, I was always a fan of Joey Potter. She had such an interesting backstory and I felt really bad that she lost her mother. I was always on Team Pacey too, so the fact that they ended up together was everything we wanted. Dawson's career obviously turned out okay and


Founder Of Toys 'R' Us, Charles Lazarus, Has Passed Away At 94

Going to Toys 'R' Us was literally the highlight of our childhood. Each and everyone of us would run through those sliding doors and would immediately turn into little Tasmanian devils and tear through the store as though we had no knowledge of manners. The reason that we got to enjoy this epic experience was because of Charles Lazarus. Lazarus founded his company in 1948 and every since he has watched his company grow. That is, until this week. The first toy store he opened was not called Toys 'R' Us, but instead "Children's Bargain Town." He knew that the
