An American Classic: Bob Dylan's Original Version of "Friday," the Song Rebecca Black Ruined

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Racking up millions of YouTube views and mentions on celebrity gossip sites like this one, Rebecca Black's "Friday" has become an instant Internet sensation.

Little did we know it was just a Bob Dylan cover sung by a no-talent hack.

The legendary singer of "Blowin' in the Wind," "Like a Rolling Stone," "The Times They Are a-Changin'" and other American anthems has such an incredible resume, some of his works are lost in the shuffle, hidden gems waiting to be discovered.

Maybe now, "Friday" will be recognized among Dylan's greatest hits:

Follow the jump for Rebecca Black's unbearable version ...

THG NOTE: Obviously this is not a real Bob Dylan song. It was recorded by some dude after Black's nonsense came out. But the guy's good, you gotta admit.

Tell us you don't die laughing every time "Bob" sings the refrain, "partyin' partyin' yeah." We've never appreciated the existence of weekends quite so much.

Nice damage control bro


me thinks you really thought that was Bob Dylan, and had to revise this posting. He hardly sounds like Dylan, only in tone on his ending phrases. Don't really expect Hollywood gossip to know the difference though. shame


Sorry but I think you've been had, a quick internet search will show you that this is a fake.
