"Gangnam Style" is a song made by K-pop singer PSY. It is a major meme on the SiIvaGunner channel, being the 4th-most recurring joke behind "The Nutshack", "Snow halation" and "Meet the Flintstones".

History

On July 12, 2012, Korean pop artist PSY released "Gangnam Style" on his album PSY 6 (Six Rules), Part 1. The music video for the song was uploaded onto YouTube the same day. The song became the most viewed video on YouTube in August 2012 (which caused emergency maintenance of the website following its foray into 1 billion views), with currently over 4.3 billion views and 23 million likes. "Gangnam Style" was the most viewed video on YouTube up until mid-2017.

After the music video for "Gangnam Style" was released it became a massive viral hit, with the song, dances, and PSY himself becoming pop culture icons. The song and dance would be referenced in various commercials, tv shows and films. "Gangnam Style" would appear in in video games such as Just Dance 4. "Gangnam Style" would also inspire multiple parodies to be made of it. PSY has also made numerous appearances at major events and in other media after the song's success.

As of February 2022, it is currently the 11th most viewed video on YouTube.

Nearly ten years later after "Gangnam Style" and the album were published, PSY would bring back the character with his iconic dance in the music video "'That That", which is part of his album PSY 9th uploaded on April 29, 2022.

The song would also become a meme and become a notable source of mashups on Triple-Q's channel. He would release collaborative albums on his Bandcamp page based around "Gangnam Style" and other songs by PSY called GANGNAMCORE. It is worth noting that several SiIvaGunner rippers (including key figures Chaze the Chat and MtH) contributed to the GANGNAMCORE series, even before the channel's formation.

Channel events

"PSY Days" are celebrated annually on the channel, always heavily featuring "Gangnam Style" alongside other PSY songs.

July 15, 2016 was the fourth anniversary of "Gangnam Style"'s upload onto YouTube, and the first PSY Day. In celebration of the anniversary, rips were themed around PSY and "Gangnam Style" in the event.

On July 10, 2017, Triple-Q tweeted an image of "Gangnam Style" losing its position as most viewed video to Wiz Khalifa's "See You Again feat. Charlie Puth", which was closely trailed by "Despacito' by Luis Fonsi ft. Daddy Yankee. The following day, Triple-Q announced he was taking submissions for his latest album GANGNAMCORE 3 & Knuckles: The Weight Oppa World. On July 15th 2017, the SiIvaGunner channel began another "Gangnam Style" event, PSY Day 2, starting with "The Sun Rises - Ōkami". President Haltmann would later Tweet about Triple-Q's album,[1] which was released an hour before the rip "The Weight of the World - NieR: Automata" was uploaded.

PSY Day 3 was originally going to be on July 15, 2018, the sixth anniversary of "Gangnam Style", but a two-week copyright strike forced the event to be pushed to a different PSY-related date, celebrating the third anniversary of the original release of "Daddy".

PSY Day 4 was held on July 15, 2019, celebrated of "Gangnam Style"'s 7th anniversary. Every rip uploaded, with the exception of "Goodbye Baby - LISA: The Painful", featured songs by PSY, including "Gangnam Style".

PSY Day 5 was held on July 15, 2020, celebrating the eighth anniversary of the original release of "Gangnam Style". It was revealed in the video "PSY Day 5 Reveal || SiIvaFes", as part of The SiIvaSummer All-Star Festival.

PSY Day 6 was held on July 15, 2021, during SiIvaGunner All-Star Summer Festival 2021: Legends of the Western Sunset, and celebrating the ninth anniversary of the original release of "Gangnam Style". It was revealed in the video "The Bounty of Gentleman PSY - The SiIvaGunner All-Star Summer Festival 2021". The event ended with a community post, saying "Bang", implying that PSY was caught and killed for the bounty.
