"Wii Shop Channel" (also known as the "Main Theme" from the Wii Shop channel) is a frequently ripped track and a minor meme on the SiIvaGunner channel.

Summary

The Wii Shop Channel[1] music was composed by Kazumi Totaka, a veteran music composer for Nintendo, mostly known for the "Totaka's Song" recurring Easter egg. It has been the only song featured while browsing Nintendo's online shop service for the Nintendo Wii since its launch in 2006, however the shopping service was shut down on January 30th, 2019.

The track was later featured on the album Touch! Generations Soundtrack[2], as well as in the Super Smash Bros. series: in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, the original song can be heard on the stage PictoChat, while a remix/mashup with "Mii Channel" arranged by Hirokazu Koshio appears on the Miiverse stage in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U.

The song is somewhat infamous amongst avid Wii users due to its catchy but repetitive nature, ending ingrained in their brains after long sessions (Nintendo's online services not being the fastest nor the most intuitive), much like the Mii Channel music.

The first time "Wii Shop Channel" appeared back on the defunct GiIvaSunner channel was with the high quality rip "Wii Shop Channel/Mii Channel - Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U"[3] on March 8, 2016[4] (it would eventually be reuploaded on the new channel on May 10, 2016 with the slightly different title "Wii Shop Channel / Mii Channel - Super Smash Bros. for Wii U"). It was a mashup of the already rearranged song with the classic meme Never Gonna Give You Up. Its first appearance on the SiIvaGunner channel was again with the arranged version with "Wii Shop Channel (Beta Mix) - Super Smash Bros. Brawl" on April 17, 2016, a mashup with "Cha Cha Slide" by DJ Caspera. The remix doesn't actually appear in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, though it might be less a mistake than another misinforming bait-and-switch, as the description is not correct either ("Masato Code with RiRiKA" is credited for the arrangement; first of all it's Coda, and they are actually responsible for "Bath Time Theme" in SSB4).

The track is mostly famous on the channel thanks to a mashup with Hotline Bling, otherwise known as "Wii Shop Bling" by toonlink. Only an updated version would be uploaded on the new channel months later on January 6, 2017, while the original mashup version was never uploaded to the GiIvaSunner channel (most of the top comments of the "Wii Shop Channel" rips uploaded prior this one lamented that it wasn't this).

There are currently 27 high quality rips of "Wii Shop Channel" and its remixes on the channel. The original renditions were initially put in their own "Wii Shop Channel" playlist but were eventually added to the Nintendo Wii playlist (likely to keep the playlists more logical, as similar songs such as "Mii Channel" didn't had their own dedicated playlist) mid-August 2017, although subsequent "Wii Shop Channel" uploads would still feature their own thumbnail and keep "Wii Shop Channel" in the title as their game of origin.
