Stupid Statement Dance Mix
"It's too late! They already have it on YouTube! And someone even made it into a music video!"
More proof that people on the Internet have too much free time.
So, you just heard the latest stupid thing some celebrity said. It's astonishingly and hilariously stupid; in fact, every time you hear it, it gets funnier and funnier. Actually, after a while, it seems to have its own peculiar rhythm. All you need to do is loop it a few times, set it to a drumbeat, and add a couple of instruments, possibly Auto-Tune
it... tada! It's a new song! Make a simple video for it, slap it on YouTube
, and you're good to go!
Note that the statement does not have to be stupid. It could have odd diction, or idiosyncratic pronunciation, or something else that made it the grist in the mill of Memetic Mutation
. Whatever it was, it's got a nice techno beat now. Recent Real Life
examples may be Auto-Tuned
to make it even more danceable. To make things even easier, there are now apps for Android and iOS that would automatically do that for you!

and Speedy Techno Remake

and Red Zone Remix Vid
for specific examples of this trope that have gotten out of hand.

- RNC chairman Michael Steele accepted when Stephen challenged him to a rap battle, but he never showed up. So Stephen just had to do it for him.

- Parodied on Law & Order: Criminal Intent, in the "WeepingWillow17 episode, itself a parody of Lonely Girl 15. When Megan Wheeler posts a plea to the (apparent) kidnappers of the titular Willow, their response inexplicably starts off with a dance mix. Along with the general Shown Their Work in that episode, the writers probably just wanted to squeeze one more in.
- Also parodied in Fun with Dick and Jane. After our hero fights Lawrence Dobson to get to a job interview, both men find a line of dozens. Just before they go out for a drink, one of the executives calls Dick into his office. No, not to give him a job, but to call other execs in and show everyone the SSDM based on Dick's statements after his boss crashed the company he used to work for and left him holding the bag.

- And when, discussing a formula for the number of times you can fold a sheet of paper, he explained in all seriousness that "what you need is length and thickness," the entire panel warned him that this would be a dance mix tomorrow.

- Brooklyn Nine-Nine, In-Universe example: Street punks pull this on Diaz while she and Santiago are trying to recruit them into the Junior Police program.
- Family Matters has the "Do the Urkel" rap: "Do the Urkel! Do-do-duh-do-duh-do-do the Urkel!"
- The X-Files: Scully Likes Science.
- This shows up in-universe in an episode of Castle, "Meme is Murder" - Castle wanted the video for his latest book to go viral on the internet, and well, it did. It just wasn't the video he expected.
- The unofficial DVD and soundtrack of the 1970's CBS special A Special Sesame Street Christmas features one of these called "Your Imagination", credited to "Michael Jackson and DJ Oscar". It's a rather flimsy attempt to create new material featuring Jackson, whose role in the special is merely a minute-long cameo despite the fact that he appears on both the DVD and soundtrack covers.
: So here’s how you make a DVD bonus feature: 1. Take a freeze frame of Michael Jackson and a photo of Oscar the Grouch. 2. Edit Michael Jackson’s few lines of dialogue to make it sound like a song about the joys of imagination. 3. Throw some fuzzy pink confetti animation in the background. 4. EVERYBODY DANCE
- The Ur Example is the composition "It's Gonna Rain" by Steve Reich, where he took part of a speech from an over-the-top street preacher and looped it...in 1965. Many of the early pioneers in the techno/trance/house genre cite Steve Reich and specifically this piece as an inspiration.
- Another early example was Scott Johnson's "John Somebody" which came out in the late 70s. It sampled random bits of phone conversations with friends and recordings of laughter and played guitar riffs to accompany them. Though his work wasn't necessarily to mock them, but to bring attention to the musical quality of the human voice.
- The band Talking Heads seem to have been instrumental in the development of this trope, oddly enough:
- An early example comes from lead singer David Byrne and frequent producer/collaborator Brian Eno: The 1981 album My Life in the Bush of Ghosts is made up of songs based around samples from interviews, field recordings, or TV broadcasts. The samples weren't as 'chopped and screwed' as many of these other examples, and the focus was on sampling-as-an-instrument instead of making fun of celebrities, but the essentials are there: voice samples, played around with and used as if a vocal track, and set to a backing beat.
- Meanwhile, the Trope Maker might come from a collaboration between keyboardist Jerry Harrison, Bootsy Collins of Parliament/Funkadelic and producer Daniel Lazerus, operating under the name Bonzo Goes to Washington. In 1984, they gave Ronald Reagan's infamous "We begin bombing in five minutes" joke a dance mix.
- Also in 1984, Time Zone (Johnny Rotten and Afrika Bambaataa) first recorded their classic rap World Destruction, then made it into a dance mix version featuring, among other things, a sample of then-Presidential candidate Walter Mondale saying "Mr. Reagan has a thing about arms control."
- Also running for President in 1984 was Rev. Jesse Jackson, whose iconic address to the Democratic Convention and one of his "Free South Africa" speeches were sampled by Stetsasonic for 1987's A.F.R.I.C.A.
- Arguable proto-example: Ice Cube wrote a song called "The Predator" in 1992, whose refrain looped Arnold Schwarzenegger's catchphrase "I'll be back," from The Terminator.
- Prince had a #1 hit single in 1989 with "Batdance". The song is literally two Stupid Statement Dance Mixes mashed together: a maniacal dance beat for Batman and the Joker, with a slinky funk number for Vicki Vale. Each section also got their own 12" remix.
- Here's a transcript of the early part of the song, just to give you a taste of how schizoid it really is: "[guitar riff] 'Oh, I got a live one here! Heh-heh-heh-heh-heh-heh-hoo-hoo-hoo-hoo!' [marimba] [guitar riff] 'GET THE FUNK UP!' 'BATMAN!' 'GET THE FUNK UP!' 'BATMAN!' 'GET THE FUNK UP!' 'Go-Go-Go with a smile! [percussive beat] 'BAT-DANCE!' 'Do it!' [saxophone riff]..."
- Similarly, Madonna's "Now I'm Following You" remix on I'm Breathless, based on a cover of a 1930s tune heard in Dick Tracy. Madonna even "interacts" with the movie's characters, causing an overlap with another trope.
- This one nearly rivals "Batdance" for sheer outrageousness: "[comically slowed-down voice] My feet...My feet...might be falling out of - [comically sped-up, "chipmunked" tape-player voice]..."
- There's a weird one on the B side of the original "Like a Prayer". Madonna recites the Act of Contrition, a prayer for forgiveness — and immediately loses her temper.
- One of the earliest clear examples (predating YouTube by a good ten years) has to be It's a Skull (AKA Valhalla, in the style of... a crap dance mix), which featured vocals made entirely from voice samples taken from Valhalla and the Lord of Infinity, an adventure game for the Amiga, created as an entry to Amiga Power's regular "In the style of..." competition, and later published on the coverdisk a few issues later.
- Pre-Internet proto-example: At a 1986 Venom concert in New Jersey, the late Joe Cole, roadie for opening act Black Flag, recorded the drunken onstage banter of Cronos, singer for headlining act Venom ("It's called Newcastle Brown Ale! IT KNOCKS YOU ON YOUR FUCKIN' BACK, LET ME TELL YOU!!"), with the songs edited out. Sonic Youth leader Thurston Moore released the recorded ranting as an unofficial 7'' single on his record label Ecstatic Peace, and the Beastie Boys sampled it.
- There's an entire subgenre of using Stupid Statement Dance Mixes as a Take That, Critics!: wrapping their words up in the very music they're rallying against:
- In a very different example we have Tim Lambesis of As I Lay Dying's side project Austrian Death Machine. The concept is to make brutal, hardcore, thrash/metalcore songs out of Arnie quotes. It even has Chad Ackerman of Destroy the Runner performing Arnie impressions.
- 80s mutant disco group Was (Not Was) released a dance mix of the first George Bush's "read my lips" speech under the name A Thousand Points of Night.
- Bass Guitar giant Victor Wooten of all people has one.
- British art-pop group The Chap, with Never a frown with Gordon Brown.
- Some of multimedia performance group Emergency Broadcast Network's work in this vein was used as an opening act for U2 in the 90s.
- TAS-1000's only album, A Message For Marta was all songs based around loops of answering machine messages (taken from a tape that was in a used answering machine a member purchased).
- Negativland's U2 single set some bootlegged outtakes of a foul-mouthed Casey Kasem to a cheesy instrumental version of U2's "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For." Naturally the official release got sued out of existence.
- Negativland has done a number of these over the years. The best known and most controversial is probably "Christianity Is Stupid" in which a recording of Rev. Estus Pirkle, speaking in a self-produced 1971 film about what life under Godless communism would be like, is taken out of context and re-edited.
- Imma let you finish... but I have the best stupid statement mixes of all time, yo!
- FRONTIER PSYCHIATRIST! Made by The Avalanches from various clips from non-musical records (as well as movies).
- Marcus Kinchin's "Dub of Doom" remix of The Nightcrawlers' "Push The Feeling On" was far more popular than the original song, to the extent that all subsequent remixes were based on his.
- "Call My Name", an early self-released song by The Spinto Band, did this with The Childlike Empress from the film version of The Never Ending Story ("Why don't you do what you dream, Bastian? Call my name! Call my name!").
- When Paris Hilton's pop album came out, Danger Mouse and Banksy made 500 CDs with a SSDM of all the stupid things Paris has ever said and distributed them randomly in record shops in the UK amongst the real albums.
- They Might Be Giants' "P.S.O.K." - though there is a brief chorus of sorts sung by John Flansburgh, most of the vocals are sampled stage banter from Kiss's Paul Stanley, sourced from a bootleg collection of banter entitled People, Let Me Get This Off My Chest. It mainly demonstrates how Stanley keeps using variations on the same lines show after show:
We haven't played this one but once all this whole tour
We haven't played this one in a long time
I don't think we've played this one in a long time
We haven't played this one in a long time
- Roughly 80% of Fatboy Slim's music is this, such as:
- German techno band Scooter delighted us with hits like "Hyper, hyper" and "How much is the fish?".
- "Director's Cut" by '89 Skratch Gangstaz mixes various Arnold Schwarzenegger lines into the track.
- German DJ group Noisy Stylus remixes the Powerpuff Girls episode "Beat Your Greens" into the track "Broccoli Wars".
- Handsome Boy Modeling School's So...How's Your Girl? includes two short SSDMs of an episode of the sitcom Get A Life, which the group got their name from: "Look At This Face (Oh My God, They're Gorgeous!)" and "Modeling Sucks".
- Covenant's "Painamplifier"("Put your life in a pain-a pain-a pain-a pain amplifier") and "Shelter"("The atom bomb explodes again!"... :BAAAOOOM: :BAAAOOOM: :BAAAOOOM: for the rest of the song)
- Paul Hardcastle - "19":
Saigon, Saigon, S-S-S-S-S-S-Saigon. N-N-N-N-Nine-Nine, N-N-N-N-Nineteen.
- Subverted in that it wasn't intended to mock the thing it was sampling, rather reenforce the horrors of it.
- Look at this photograph. Every time I do it makes me laugh. Every time I do it makes me laugh. Every time I do it makes me laugh. When I laugh it makes me laugh. Every time I laugh it makes me laugh...
News and Current Affairs
- V.I.M.'s 1991 song "Maggie's Last Party" is one of then-former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, sampling from a speech presumably criticizing the rave scene.
- Also prior to YouTube, in 2000 German chancellor Gerhard Schroeder got a sample of his saying "Get me a beer or I'll go on strike!" added to some polka.
- This is Evolution Control Committee's entire schtick, though their most famous song, "Rocked by Rape" spliced together a number of Dan Rather clips to skewer him rather effectively. CBS was not amused, but their attempts at squashing the song backfired spectacularly.
- Ted Stevens: "The Internet is a series of tubes."
- Aussies would remember "Pauline Pantsdown", based on remixing words spoken by politician Pauline Hanson from about ten years ago. It wasn't techno but it actually got airtime and reached #5 on the Triple J Hottest 100.
- Even our "good friend" Jack Thompson is not immune to this phenomenon. Of course, the sheer volume of his stupid statements means you could probably get a full album out of him.
- Andrew Meyer, a University of Florida student at a John Kerry rally: "Don't taze me, bro! Don't taze me! I didn't do anything!" Fortunately for us, they didn't listen.
- A variation was the video for "Dirty Laundry"; instead of sound clips, it used video clips of news reporters and anchors.
- During his Thing A Week project, Jonathan Coulton did a few of these.
- "W's Duty" by Jonathan Coulton is a Stupid Statement Dance Mix of George W. Bush talking about duty, because Jonathan Coulton is willing to admit that it does in fact sound like a word for poop and this is in fact funny.
- His first Thing a Week, "See You All In Hell", also falls under this.
- His song "Bacteria" (from before Thing A Week) does the same with an employee video about proper sanitation from KFC.
- Bill Bailey remixes soundbites from politicians, especially George W. Bush, live as part of his act. And occasionally stranger things, like snippets of the weather forecast.
- JEAN MICHEL JARRE IS A FRAAAAAUD
- GWB's many statements over those eight long painful years just begged to be SSDM'd. Even Neil Young got in on it. In his 2006 release Living With War, the song "Let's Impeach the President"note includes a coda in which a 100-voice chorus shouts "FLIP!.... FLOP!" over soundbites of Shrub saying first one thing, then another, about the 9-11 attacks, Bin Laden and Saddam Hussein.
- It's taken entirely too long so far to make a techno remix out of Barack Obama's most memorable quotes.
- Though it includes a good deal of non-sampled vocals mixed in, there's the self-explanatory Autotune The News.
- FUCK YOU DEPUTY STAGG, FUCK YOU.
- For anyone who's not in Ireland, this is of when a Member of the Irish Parliament, Paul Gogarty, exclaimed that in the middle of a debate.
- Former Hungarian Prime Minister, Ferenc Gyurcs Ăˇny was as much parodied as he was criticized for his famous speach. The infamous lines "because we fucked it up" and "in this bitch of a country" are pretty frequent in remixes. It's even funnier when the mix is done to the tune of what was the theme song for his own electoral campaign.
- An old one: a techno remix of Hugo Chavez (or someone imitating him) repeating the refrain "palo por ese c*** " ("get [their] ass beaten", roughly) over and over, among other controversial statements. Apparently the mix was created by his opposition, but in an ironic twist the song was adopted by his own followers.
- And the remix of the King of Spain chewing Chavez out with approximately, "Why don't you shut up?"
- It doesn't get any more stupid than this, when a reporter says, "He climbed to the top of Mount Everest, but... he's gay. Excuse me, he's blind." The short version, with just the stupid statement, can be found here or here and here and here and the remix can be found here and mostly here. It never ceases to be hilarious and painful.
- Struttin' that ass.
- Courtesy of Auto-Tune the News, most likely the Trope Codifier, the "Bed Intruder Song", SO YOU CAN RUN AND TELL THAT RUN AND TELL THAT RUN AND TELL THAT HOMEBOY HO-HO-HOMEBOY!
- The "Chk-Chk Boom!" girl, a Kings Cross resident who gave a fabricated eyewitness account of a public shooting to A Current Affair complete with the aforementioned sound effect, has been turned into several dance mixes.
- Here's a genuine eyewitness account of a foiled gas station robbery, from Kansas City resident Diana Radcliff, set to an Autotune that earned her and the group international viral notoriety.
- While he was watching Gaddafi's latest rant promising to destroy the pro-democratic uprising against him, Israeli musician Noy Alooshe thought that the dictator's crazy gesticulations and speech patterns reminded him of a trance party. The result: Zenga Zenga, the same speech autotuned to Pitbull's "Hey Baby." It's become popular among members of the Libyan opposition.
- From Songify This: I WAS BANGING SEVEN GRAM ROCKS, THAT'S HOW I ROLL, WINNING!
- For more brilliance, there's Totalcult's Fire Breathing Fists, which includes Cypress Hill's "Insane in the Membrane".

- A Brazilian woman complained on how a social welfare program barely left her money, even to buy some pants for her 16-year old as the price is "over R$300". Of course this fits under a catchy beat.
- When Candice Michelle Took a Level in Badass in 2007, challenging Melina for the Women's Championship, WWE composer Jim Johnston took her previous entrance theme "What Love Is" (a fairly straightforward R&B number with a rap breakdown toward the end) and remixed it into a new version that started out like the old one and sounded like it for about four seconds, but then veered off into wacko repetition mode and stayed like that for the rest of the song; with its mind-numbing techno beat and ad nauseam repetitions of "Move your body", "Raise your hands up", and "All eyes on muh-muh-muh-muh-muh-me!", it's easy to interpret this as a parody of Stupid Statement Dance Mixes...but no, it's dead serious. (You can hear the "What Love Is" remix on the 2008 album WWE The Music Volume 8.)

Of course the fandom is leaping onto the footage with abandon, and we should expect to see every "standard SSDM" using it out by the next month latest.

Techno Porno Groove Mix. It was only a matter of time before we got the logical conclusion. "Look at this...HUMAN. I WILL SHOW YOU TRUE POWER. Sneaking into the captain's quarters...I KNOW YOU FEEL THIS."
- Puzzlingly, the end-credits music for Sanitarium is a remix of various lines from the game. It may not be one statement over and over, but it's close enough to this trope to be amusingly incongruous with the rest of the game.
- that's memes? Daijoubu da, mondai.

- There are several remixes of a Let's Play for Super Kaizo World when the LPer, Proton Jon is spin-jumping on a Pokey, which is moving at an excruciatingly slow pace (rather bad, since he only has 100 seconds to complete the course). His cries of "MOVE FASTER POKEY!" have apparently undergone Memetic Mutation. "Groove faster Pokey!"
- There is also a Baldur's Gate Gather Your Party Remix.
- Hyperdimension Neptunia: Blanc / White Heart's "Thunder Tits" remark gets a Sparta remix.

- Try this. Recommended for those who have trouble staying awake! Can't sleep, clown will eat me.
- The folks at the mrbrown show took several soundbites from the National Day address, made by the Prime Minister of Singapore Lee Hsien Loong, and then remixed them to the rhythm of "My Humps" by the Black-Eyed peas. This one needs a bit of context first: the Prime Minister had made a jarring malapropism when he addressed an earlier podcast by the mrbrown show, in which an aspiring politician can't get his order of noodles, because the hawker has surveillance footage proof that he did not order what he had claimed to. This in itself was referencing an incident that happened during the 2006 General Elections in Singapore. The Prime Minister countered this by saying "I will say, mee siam mai hum", which means "rice vermecilli without cockles". However, the dish of mee siam is never eaten with cockles anyway, which demonstrated how out of touch the Prime Minister, and his scriptwriters, were with the people. It can be argued that he was trying to say hiam, or "chillies/spice", but who eats non-spicy mee siam anyway? At any rate, you can check it out here.

- True Capitalist gets this a lot. So much so, that its host hates it.

- The Game Grumps have inspired tons of these, to the point that one fan has compiled six unofficial albums, with 30 or more songs each, and that's barely scratching the surface.
- There have even been a couple in the show itself, made by resident video editor Barry. Most notably, in a playthrough of Mario Party, Jon requested that Barry remix Arin sobbing (as Princess Peach) "Iwonttakeyourjewelsanymorewhatthefuckyoucanhavethemallbackifyouwant!" The result was glorious.
- From Yu-Gi-Oh! The Abridged Series, we get "Would You Like This Baby?". While mostly original, it does contain a clip of Lanipator saying "Hi, I'm Lanipator" from a video Lani had uploaded four years previously.

- This video uses lines from the South Park movie mixed to a techno-ish beat.
- The Bloodhound Gang did a variant on this with their song "Ralph Wiggum," which is a song made entirely out of quotes by, well, Ralph Wiggum from The Simpsons. "I'm a pop sensation," indeed. Though technically, one line was spoken to him, instead of by him.

- Punch Your Buns- Ryden Ridge Remix 
- There is not enough room on this page to list all the remixes of My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, and we don't want to play favorites, but just Take Our Word for It that there a lot of them. It might be exaggerating to say every line from every episode has been incorporated into one somewhere, but only slightly.
- One particularly noteworthy example is 'Avast Fluttershy's Ass' which, rather than reworking Fluttershy's lines into lyrics, reworks miniscule samples of them (and a few sound effects, such as her kicking a vase) into the melody. Also uses her "Flutterguy" voice to provide bass. It actually became so popular that it received multiple remixes and inspired several imitators.
- The mane theme itself gets this treatment in the opening of Equestria Girls.
- Fluttershy's infamous "You're... going.. to LOVE ME!" speech was given the "SPARTA!" treatment.

- It's like a turducken!
- There was also one for the DNGS, and another one for All Hail Starscream! - in all cases, made by The Hub themselves, and used in ads for the Huboom block.
- An In-Universe example - Soundwave does it to Optimus Prime while being interrogated. Miko's quick to lampshade:
Whoa! Optimus Prime, the remix.

- Hey Arnold! seemed particularly fond of using these for end credits music.

- Tear open the heavens! Gather brother soul blades!. It synced perfectly enough to make a Dance Dance Revolution stepfile for simulators to it.
- Charlie bit my finger
- Not exactly an example of this trope as it isn't a celebrity or movie quote, but instead about how astronomer Patrick Moore plays the xylophone (or least he did till arthritis stopped him). "Par-pa-pa-pa-pa-Patrick!"
- Robert Byrd's "Barbaric" speech got the treatment in this YTMND.

- German late-night commedian Stefan Raab has done quite a few of these, most famously involving the german chancelor singing "Go get me a bottle of beer, else I'm going on strike!"
- Though his canonical example of the trope may just be 'Maschen-Draht-Zaun'.
- Nafiza Ziyad, who's apparently PRESSIN CHARGES

- Even talking cats are not immune to this. Oh Don Piano!

- Super Timor!
- Developers, developers, developers, developers! (Steve Ballmer)
- This Youtube channel is entirely based on pasting the "I'm Black Y'all" rap from the hip-hop mockumentary CB 4 over various VGM songs. With hilarious results, of course.
- Stark Effect's Mic In-Track, an EP of techno songs based around anonymous internet-users' home recordings, which were unwittingly shared on peer-to-peer file-sharing programs due to being left in the same folder as their shared music. "Bunny Rabbits Satan Cheese And Milk" and "Eeples And Beeneenees" best fit the stupid statement dance mix formula, though "I Miss You" is actually downright sad.
- If this statement is false, then this statement is true. And Alfred Tarski can't save you now, bitch.
- Looks like a alien invaduh!
- This isn't so much a Stupid Statement Dance Mix as it is an Incoherent Noises Dance Mix, but it still kicks ass.

- The Tiger Woods voicemail slowjam.
- Here is an example of how a SSDM can be used to pay tribute to the most iconic figure in Professional Wrestling.

- Ashens later reviewed a handheld game called Retieval Mankind's Batman for his popular Popstation Watch videos. He made a passing joke about how the tat looked like a fat Batarang. Then, this video happened.
- Ashens himself made one from an old clip from Columbo. He plays it anytime he needs to show off a device's audio quality instead of playing a licensed song and risking a takedown notice.
- Bring a chicken to the doctor.
- Somebody call an AMBERLAMPS!
- Whoa-oh Black Betty -AMBERLAMPS!- Yeah-ha Black Betty -AMBERLAMPS!-
- Not a "statement" really, but a dog that makes strange noises when its owner attempts to hold it's mouth shut has inspired several remixes, including hip hop, dubstep, trololo, and of course the ubiquitous sparta mix.

- Senator Stevens would like you to know that The Internet is a series of tubes, not a big truck.
- John, do the windy thing!
- Ladies and Germs, behold the Farting Preacher Dance Remix. Clearly, we as a society have reached the pinnacle of something here, it's just hard to say what.
- A genre of video from Japan called "gachimuchi" (a Japanese term for big, muscular men) involves making a Stupid Statement Dance Mix out of gay porn, mostly those involving adult film star Billy Herrington. The results are... weird.
- Swedemason, the creator of Jungle All The Way (aka the "PUT THAT COOKIE DOWN" song) has an entire YouTube channel full of these.
