about

Basically, this track is everything Insane Ian wishes he could be...famous on the internet for his nerdy songs, just like his nerdcore and comedy music peers. Well, more famous than he already is, anyway.

lyrics

Internet Famous by Insane Ian
Featuring Chris Ballew of the Presidents of the United States of America
This song is an interpolation, not a parody, of "Naked and Famous" by The Presidents of the United States of America.
Music recreated and produced by Klopfenpop, a Resident of the United States of America.

1)
I can't explain why I love the 'net so much
For entertainment, it's got the Midas Touch
Online shopping, games, cat videos,
streaming shows, ladies with no clothes
YouTube has replaced our MTV
We now download our tunes for free
Y'all love "Rap Battles of History"
Frontalot and Watsky, SO WHY NOT ME?
I had a few of my videos go viral
But not enough to have my whole career spiral
Out of control, or have my fame explode
I still have to pay my own way to shows
To stay so relevant takes so much work
Gotta stay in the public view like some 30 Foot Smurfs
My lust for fame is clearly quite evident
That's why I went and borrowed this riff from the Presidents

Chorus (Chris Ballew):
Ev'rybody wants to be Internet Famous
Ev'rybody wants to be just like me, I'm Famous! (X2)

2)
Now I'm not trying to say that I'm not well known
but no one knows my music in the town I call home
Well, that's not exactly true, there was that one time
"Aren't you that rapper from online?" asked in a drive-thru line
Been at this a long time but it feels like no one knows me
I've got a lot in common with the great Luke Ski
We both like to Rock about Spock and BioShock
So why are we not touring shows like Adam WarRock?!
We'll do anything to get our fan's attention!
Hell, we'll even put on our OWN convention!
I top the charts hosted by DJ Particle
But get a one-line mention in that Buzzfeed article
I try to stay vocal on all social media
But I would still kill for a page on Wikipedia
I'm always retweetin' about the games I have beaten
But tweet about a song and I get blocked by Wil Wheaton!

Chorus

3)
Don't get a nosebleed! Don't get upset!
I can't be Internet Famous just yet
There's a big gold dollar sign on my computer set
I will send my ass to YouTube and go pay my debt
If I want to go and rock more shows
I'll make more music videos!
I'll review games, I'll post 'em online
I mean, I plan to, I just gotta make time...
If fame's my aim, I'll keep to my schtick
Eventually this trick will stick
But if that won't work, one last escape
Put out my own comedy sex tape!

Chorus (X4)
I love my fans.
