We've all heard Scandal and Patty Smyth's hit 80's jam "The Warrior," featuring one of the most distinctive "Bang, bangs!" in music history.
Just in case you've forgotten what it sounds like:

Comedian Patton Oswalt must have spent some of his Valentine's day jamming out to the song, because he celebrated the year's most romantic day by starting a new meme!
The rules of the meme are simple. Instead of "Bang bang," Twitter users are substituting...well, pretty much anything.
The meme took on a life of its own—long after Oswalt stopped tweeting, his fans continued the legacy he began.
It's hard to explain why this meme works so well...but it really does.
When humanity is dead and gone, hopefully a future civilization finds this meme to explain what we're really about.
The meme has undergone numerous evolutions.
For those who've fallen behind on the news of the day, this meme is the most important thing you need to cover.
