Dancing Baby HD

The Dancing Baby was one of the first internet memes, dating back to 1996. Because everything old is new again, JArmstrongArt decided to update the funky CGI baby to run at 60fps and 1080p resolution. Through some serious sleuthing work, he was able to dig up the original 3D model. Oooga-chaka! (Thanks Rob!)

Baby Thunderstruck

Baby Thunderstruck

Over the course of a year, Matt MacMillan captured sounds his baby son Ryan made, not just so he’d have the memories, but so he could catalog the samples by pitch, and turn them into a cover version of AC/DC’s Thunderstruck, thus immortalizing his tot in the Internet’s meme hall of fame.

Music of Memes (1700-2017)

Music of Memes (1700-2017)

You’ll recognize most of these meme-worthy tunes, each of which epitomizes a moment in time as well as just about anything else about the era. Though we think JordiTK should have gone with Yello’s Oh Yeah instead of Trio’s Da Da Da to represent ’80s German minimalism.
