A new parody song making fun of 90s Euro dance music (EDM) has taken the internet by storm.

Comedian Kyle Gordon posted a cheesy music video of an electronica ditty called "Planet of the Bass (feat. DJ Crazy Times & Ms. Biljana Electronica)'" on the social media site X.

Since its posting on July 28, the video racked up over 93.5 million views to date.

The overlaid text in the video read:

"Every European Dance Song in the 1990s.”

It featured a male and female duo singing to a heavily-synthesized track and bopping around the futuristic interior of New York City's Oculus transportation hub.

The clip took aim at the kind of music that was reminiscent of 90s Europop acts, like Aqua and ATB, which tended to focus more on delivering uptempo and hypnotic beats rather than relaying any message of significance in the lyrics.

Poking fun at the lack of substance in the songs from the nostalgic genre, the parody tune included nonsensical lines like:

"When the rhythm is glad, there is nothing to be sad."
"Danger and dance, clapping the hands, when we out in the space, on the planet of the bass.”

Fans of the hilarious track already had their favorite lines.

And even though the song was created purely out of mockery, it was added to the playlist of music lovers.

New fans were obsessed with the video to the point of noticing new details with every repeated viewing.

Much to the delight of fans, Gordon posted a link for the full song presave in the thread.

According to his website, Gordon is a New York-based comedian who has over 3 million followers and almost a billion views across his social media platforms, including Instagram, Facebook, TikTok, and YouTube.

In addition to being a successful content creator online, Gordon has performed live to sold-out crowds across the country.

His work was featured on cable channels including Comedy Central and Adult Swim, as well as publications like Fast Company, Insider, Buzzfeed, Sports Illustrated, and Time Out New York.
