The comedic stylings of Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone have appeared to uncover the new age of music.

T-Pain’s original (maybe) but recognizable (of course) addition to the Internet hit “I’m On a Boat” is supposed to be a joke, but it sounds very similar to a lot of hits gracing the radio waves these days. If you’re at work, however, be warned that the lyrics contain a ton of profanity.

This large family of songs topping the charts is the least of the worries coming out of the music business. I guess we should all panic once the songwriter awards head in that direction. Stats for Viral Hip-Hop Parodies Trending: Older & Mild
