'''Auto-tuned'''!"''

[[http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL736C3116AD309B58&feature=plcp Auto-Tune the News]] is a web series by the Gregory Brothers (and Evan's wife Sarah), under the Website/YouTube username "schmoyoho" [[ItIsPronouncedTroPAY (accent on the yo)]], that consists of [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin taking news clips and applying the Auto-Tune filter to them.]] Combined with backing vocals, clever editing, masterful tunes and witty lyrics, the result is often CrowningMusicOfAwesome. In recent days, [[BSide shorter songs made using a single source]] have also become [[MemeticMutation wildly popular]]; this "Songify THIS!" series seems to have taken over the original "Auto-Tune the News", which seems to have been renamed "Songify the News" for more recent entries.

!!Provides examples of

* {{Adorkable}}: All of the Gregories, but ''especially'' Evan and Michael.
* AnalogyBackfire: ''"Our metaphorical car got no breaks and no gear-shift, we'll go metaphorically far while we're '''standing in the ditch!'''"''
** ''[[ThisIsForEmphasisBitch "Bitch!"]]''
* AutoTune: Obviously.
* AmbiguouslyGay: Elena Kagan, possibly.
-->''"We're having a conversation / about the implication / of sexual orientation, / [[TakeThat a silly allegation / of extreme exaggeration / and pointless information / when it comes to confirmation]]..."''
* BabiesMakeEverythingBetter: [[MisterSeahorse Michael gave birth to three]] who are totally capable of singing, playing instruments, [[BreadEggsMilkSquick and growing beards]] at such a young age.
* BadassBeard
** Jimmy [=McMillan=] of the [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Rent Is Too Damn High party]].
** Andrew Rose has one too, though it's nowhere near as bushy.
* {{Beat}}: "This is an awkward silence, I guess I'll fill it with ad-libs."
* BandOfRelatives: The group consists of Michael, Andrew and Evan Gregory, and Evan's wife Sarah.
* BrandNameTakeover: In a way, with their own videos. A lot of recent Songify This videos are considered to be Auto-Tune the News videos.
* BlackBestFriend: Dwight Howard, beats from the [[{{Mondegreen}} Regulates]](?).
* BSide: ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yghFBt-fXmw Obama Sings Kick Ass Song]]'', ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hMtZfW2z9dw Bed Intruder Song]]'', ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-fTh2GffJsM Banker's Song - We Didn't See It Coming]]'', ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qIoG4PlEPtY Backin' Up Song]]'', as well as [[ArchiveBinge many others.]]
** "Banker's Song - We Didn't See It Coming" was originally done for an {{NPR}} podcast, of all things. It doesn't help that the backing track is the same one used in #13, which in turn uses the same backing track from {{Weezer}}'s memories.
* CallBack: The line, "Very Thin Ice," started in #2 and came back in #3 and #8.
* TheCameo: Music/TPain in #8, [[Music/GoodCharlotte Joel Madden]] in #11, Music/{{Weezer}} in #13, Creator/JosephGordonLevitt in "Get your money, Turn Gay", and [[WebVideo/EpicRapBattlesOfHistory Nice Peter]] in "Muffins In Congress".
* CargoShip: Andrew Rose and his shoe, InUniverse.
* CityOfAdventure: Three of the "B-side" vids are from Huntsville, Alabama (bed intruder, strut that ass and Use Both Sides).

** "[[DoNotTouchTheFunnelCloud Oh my god oh my GOOOOOD!]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m50n4hqx1Ho&list=PL08FD35E184A24E7F&index=26 LOOK AT THE TREE!!]]"
* CouchGag: Auto-tune the news! Auto-tune the news! (Tragedy/C-Span2/Sarah Palin/''Everything'') sounds better auto-tuned!
* CreditsGag: The guy at the end of each video always has something minor happen to him, from already saying something he said earlier, to telling the chorus in the background to stop singing.

* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: "Your team responded late here, coach, how did you do it?"

* DrugsAreBad: Junkie Einstein refutes this worldview, and uses his senatorial position to argue for [[GovernmentDrugEnforcement exactly the opposite.]]
* EngineeredPublicConfession
** Often without the engineering part. A running gag is "Do you want to buy drugs from me?"
*** "[[CubanMissileCrisis It's still a place that is strictly off-limits.]]" "Not for this G, I just went there illegally, speaking of which [[RefugeInAudacity will you buy drugs from me on national TV?]]"
** "Now they're saying I [[BadBoss groped a male staffer!]] / [[ManipulativeEditing Yeah, I did!]] (Um) Yeah, yeah, yeah"
*** "A manly back rub. (JUST A BACK RUB!)"
* EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys: Frank [=McGee=], Angry Gorilla.
* EruditeStoner: Junkie Einstein might be a parody of this type, as the only thing he's knowledgeable about is how to get high ([[IntoxicationEnsues or how not]] [[GRatedDrug to get high]]). He holds a degree in biology ([[ItMakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext that he got because he was caught smoking]] [[GRatedDrug lettuce]]), but can't tell the difference between a tiger and a giraffe.
* ExhortTheDiscJockeySong: Subverted in "DJ Play My Song (No Leave Me Alone)," where the DJ keeps trying to explain that he doesn't take requests and that he can't turn up the music any louder without violating noise ordinances.
* [[strike:Five]] [[FiveManBand Four Man Band]]:
** TheHero: Michael on the show, Evan in the band.
** TheLancer: Evan on the show, Michael in the band.
** TheSmartGuy: Michael doubles as this.
** TheBigGuy: Andrew Rose.
** TheChick: Sarah.
** TheSixthRanger: Katie Couric
* FacePalm: Anderson Cooper's interview with one of Pastor Worley's supporters in Muffins in Congress is enough to elicit one of these from the group.
--> Hold up, this [[SarcasmMode learned and witty discussion]] could go on forever.
--> Apply your palm to your face and you will feel better, much better.
* FunnyBackgroundEvent: In one of the short videos, entitled "Sarah Sings with Babies", half of the fun of the video is watching the background to see if [[ItMakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext Michael can catch the frisbee as he jumps off the dock into the lake]].
* GovernmentAgencyOfFiction
** [[Music/TPain The Federal Commission of T-Pain]]
** [[ThirdPersonPerson The Federal Commission of Me]]

* ManipulativeEditing: Both played straight and lampshaded with the Eric Massa interview, where they make it look like he admitted to groping a male staffer (and then right after start repeating that "You can take anything out of context.")
* {{Megane}}: Michael.
* MelismaticVocals
* MemeticMutation: [[invoked]] The "Bed Intruder" song has been covered in the genres of Metal (both Shred/Speed and Death varieties are represented), Acoustic, Marching Band, and Chiptunes, among others. Doesn't hurt that the original video for it featured a piano cover.
** There are ''dozens'' of videos setting "Winning" to just about every form of media on the planet.
* {{Mondegreen}}
** "I got this cause I'm BadAss!"
** [[InvokedTrope Invoked]] with Junkie Einstein's presidential debate song. Go ahead, just guess what he said.
* MundaneMadeAwesome: In Auto-Tune Verse, all addresses made to Congress ''must'' be submitted in the form of a song, all debate must follow a similar structure to a rap battle, the congressional choir must be present at all times, and the congressional drummer sets the agenda for every session.
* MyFriendsAndZoidberg: "iTunes link below. Earnings go to [insert unintentional singer here] and the Gregorys. And Apple."
* {{Nepotism}}: ''Strictly'' disallowed in New Orleans. [[NoExceptYes Except for family members]]. And sexy turtles. OW.
* NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer
** The "smoking lettuce" interlude is so bizarre that a news report ''about'' it is added in to show that it really happened.

-->YES: This actually happened. I know what you're thinking, but seriously, this is real.
* NotSoDifferent: After 10 episodes of [[AmericanFederalism absurd American politics]], #11 showed that UsefulNotes/TheEuropeanUnion has its own brand of crazy as well.

* ThisIsForEmphasisBitch
** Christine O'Donnell lets us know that [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=44mqiBrB0zI she's "not a politician and not a witch, bitch"]].
** The end of #13 qualifies as well. "Standing in the ditch, bitch!"
** The refrain in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XUvhAPs38RA "DJ Play My Song (No Leave Me Alone)"]]:
--> "The noise level is already at the legal limit; now sit down and let me do my job for a minute bitch!"

* TwoferTokenMinority: Antoine Dodson is an AngryBlackMan and CampGay.
* VerbalTic: You'll be on very thin ice, Shawty~!
* VomitIndiscretionShot: Lead poisoning! Ew!

* [[IWillFindYou We Gon' Find You]]: You don't have to come, and confess. [[ParanoiaFuel We're looking for you.]]
