I heard my band in real life, offline on the computer, and on the internet. WISSK is famous now, huh?

What makes you think that counts if you're a part of that band? Of course YOU'VE heard it Plus, I've seen memes made out of that song, I've heard iot on TV commercials, and I've even heard a couple kids mimicking it at an old school. I never bothered to ask before since it didn't matter to me.

I'm not saying it's uber-popular, but it's clearly more popular than you think. Just because you haven't heard it all over the place, that doesn't mean I haven't in my youth.

Oh look, a sheltered white boy assumes he knows what someone else thinks and has experienced. I'm shocked, I've never seen something like this before.

I'm going to throw this in the mix.

Chacarron Macarron | Meme Research Discussion | Know Your Meme

It;s an internet meme, it reached 20 on the UK Singles charts.

This is from the link:
"BBC Radio 1 DJ Scott Mills started a campaign on October 30, 2006 to get the song to #1 in the UK singles chart. A link was put up on the BBC website to the video on YouTube. Although the song did not reach the top, the campaign pushed the song all the way up to #20, which became its peak. It is one of the current at-bat songs of New York Mets shortstop Josť Reyes, Cleveland Indians third baseman Andy Marte, and Texas Rangers shortstop Elvis Andrus. Additionally, Arizona Diamondbacks Catcher Miguel Montero used this song in the 2007 season."

It's a Diamondback's theme song. And a Texas Ranger's. You really can't compare your band to something that's obviously got a little popularity to it. I never said it was Led Zeppelin IV level, but it clearly has some popularity.

Oh, WISSK is your band name? I googled it, nothing came up.

And who said I assume I know what you think? You're the one who just compared youself to a baseball player's tune. You haven't given me anything to back up your statem,ent except "This is how it is."

But you know what, all you're going to do is troll me because you and I share something in common: a very defensive personality. So I'm ending this before you piss me off.

Who could forget publicity stunts from BBC DJs and the theme songs of unheard baseball players (also referred to as baseball players without steroid scandals)?

WISSK is an acronym for Wolves in Sheepskin, moron. Everyone knows that.

I only see Bandcamp pages. I meant FB. Because I think I may have found it. Not sure if you'd want me posting.
