We all remember 2011's smash hit "Party Rock Anthem" by seminal songwriters LMFAO, but what many people don't know is that the song is written at 130 b.p.m. For those who aren't musically inclined, that means 130 beats per minute, a jaunty tempo that happens to be shared by many other upbeat songs. Just how many you ask? All of them, as Twitter quickly discovered in its newest, most beautiful meme.
For comparison's sake, here's the original:
