Tom MacDonald has broken the internet again with his latest viral anti-woke anthem, 'Snowflakes.' Last month MacDonald bought Eminem's NFT beat for $100K and turned it into his own ode to the rap icon from the perspective of the infamous 'Stan' character. A pretty expensive stunt just to become a viral sensation, but hey, it worked. Now the 32-year-old is making his mark as 2021's most provocative rapper, perhaps in an effort to actually become the next Eminem. 

You know who hates America the most? Americans. 
Trigger warnings used to be on TV for seizures 
And now they're everywhere to protect millennials' feelings

It's difficult to tell whether he's succeeded in 'owning the libs' with his spicy bars, or if his haters are mostly just offended by how bad the track is. Whether you're genuinely triggered or ironically delighted by MacDonald's epic anti-woke summer jam, you've got to admit—the man knows how to go viral.

20+ Metal Memes For True Heads

Metal isn't for everyone. And we don't really have to say that. Being a fan of heavy, dark, and often evil-sounding music isn't for everyone. You could say it's an acquired taste. But once you've acquired that taste? You're a metalhead for life. And as is the case with most art forms, metal (and its many subgenres) has become the subject of quite a few memes. There are quite a few subreddits and even a Facebook page dedicated to memes of the metal variety. This collection features a little bit of everything. Wholesome metal memes.Memes for Meshuggah fans.

Funny Memes & Tweets People Can Sing Along To

We can't be the only people who are desperately missing karaoke. Singing our favorite songs with complete strangers or a group of close friends is such a liberating feeling - and one that we can't wait to relive. Until then, we settle for singing with the radio in the car, or while we dance while cleaning our homes. These memes provide a different kind of substitution, and they've got a few things in common. They're all funny, and they're all riffs on popular lyrics that we know and love. Who knew a meme could be a remix?

Journey's "Don't Stop Believin'" has become something of an American classic. It's like "Sweet Caroline" in that when somebody plays it on a jukebox or during a DJ set, people are inevitably going to sing (or scream) along. In this video, Alex Melton takes the 80's song and puts a different kind of nostalgic spin on it - the millennial nostalgia of Blink-182 style pop punk.

Who says you need instruments to make music? If you listen closely to your surroundings, the mechanical clanks and clamor of the city are like an urban symphony. Composer and jazz pianist Sam Ross was inspired by an old YouTube video of a noisy AC window unit that sounded like a free jazz drum solo and took it upon himself to elevate the jam with some funky piano and a full backing band. The result is truly epic.

On this day in 1994, Kurt Cobain tragically died at the age of 27 in his Seattle home. Over the years, fans have wondered where Nirvana would have gone if not for Cobain's untimely death, but the reality is that he suffered from both mental and physical illnesses that would have continued to hinder him creatively in life. An organization called Over The Bridge is aiming to 'change the conversation about mental health in the music community' with their current Lost Tapes of the 27 Club project—an album of songs generated by AI software in the style of various musicians who all died at the age of 27 and struggled with their mental health. The album includes one Nirvana tribute called Drowned in the Sun. Everything in the song was generated by AI software except for the vocals, which were performed by the frontman of a Nirvana tribute band. The song itself is a somewhat unsettling pastiche of the legendary band. Drowned in the Sun certainly wouldn't have been one of Nirvana's best, but AI-generated music as a process is pretty surreal and fascinating in itself. Computers can't replace legends, that's for sure.

Video Of Prince Playing Basketball Backs Up Charlie Murphy's Classic 'Chappelle's Show' Story

'Chappelle's Show' is easily one of the greatest comedy programs of all time. The guests. The blunt social comedy. I mean, Dave Chappelle. There are so many episodes and moments that we've shared eagerly with friends and watched too many times to count. But the one that feels universally loved (Besides Piss On You, of course) is the late great Charlie Murphy's 'True Hollywood Stories' tale of playing (and losing) a game of basketball with a bloused up Prince.

The story is beloved for a reason. And yesterday, on Twitter, the internet was gifted further proof of Prince's skills on the court, thanks to user @freezep0p. They uploaded footage from a Prince's LOVESEXY tour in which the musical genius flaunts some serious basketball skills. He spins the ball on his finger and then proceeds to absolutely nail a shot with the ease of Michael Jordan. The tweet quickly went viral, and spawned some serious nostalgia for Murphy's epic anecdote.

People Really Hate Rick Astley's 'Never Gonna Give You Up' 4k Remaster

There are very few memes as timeless as the "Rickroll." The meme, which involves Rick Astley's "Never Gonna Give You Up," is a classic prank. And today, the internet became shocked after seeing their beloved 1987 music video remastered in crisp and clean 4k. The remaster comes courtesy of Revideo, a YouTube account that remasters videos with AI for kicks. This is without a doubt their most viral effort. On Twitter, user @Ray_sho shared a clip of the spiffed up video, deeming it cursed. Though some viewers were appreciative of the makeover, many responses echoed their revulsion. We'll admit that there's a certain charm that's lost with all the fuzziness eliminated, but anything involving Mr. Astley is a joy in our books. Check out the difference between the videos (and enjoy some of the peanut gallery's responses) below.

Parrots are incredible birds. They can speak, they often outlive their owners, and apparently you can train them to sing along with you to Led Zeppelin's 'Stairway to Heaven.' After watching this video, we're no longer impressed by parrots who are able to express their desire for crackers.

24 Hilarious Twitter Reactions To The Kim & Kanye Divorce Rumors

Looks like 2021 has claimed its first victims. You know, besides the thousands of people who have died of Covid-19. Page Six dropped a bomb on pop culture fanatics yesterday. The bomb? That Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are getting divorced. The exclusive report claims that multiple sources have come forward to share that "divorce is imminent" for the couple. This isn't the first time a tabloid has teased their journey to Splitsville, but Page Six cites Kanye's absence from the Kardashian family holiday celebrations and Kim's equally absent wedding ring as proof that they are calling it quits. 

The high profile couple has yet to speak on the matter, but people on Twitter are making up for their silence with some seriously funny and scathing reactions. While some people are giddy about the news (people who love drama, Kanye fans who crave new music), other Twitter users are using this moment to call out Kim and Kanye for their narcissism, money-hungry families, and some of the more ridiculous stunts of their relationship. And then there are the people who claim they don't care - but for some reason feel the need to tell the world about it.

23 Roasty Tweets About The CIA's Painfully Hip Rebrand

It's the first week of 2021, and if the CIA had rebranding on their list of resolutions, they can cross that sh*t off. The spy agency unveiled their new website design today, and it looks, well, pretty familiar. That could be because it resembles a Berlin rave poster, or maybe because it's also strangely similar to the oft-copied art of Joy Division's Unknown Pleasures. Either way, the design job simply aches of the agency's yearning for fresh blood and diverse operatives. It's a look we have yet to see from dry and dull government agencies. But this departure from the bureaucratic design of yore seems to be a bit too intense for the critics of Twitter. The rebrand is now the subject of a whole lot of scathing (and witty) commentary. Most of the humor lies in the niche intersections of art, music, and geography, but we're pretty sure at least some of these tweets will register to your brain as "funny" or "true." And hey, maybe their design will convince you to aid in a coup or two of your own.
