These viral songs and music videos on YouTube are not just a list of funny YouTube songs but are all the best viral songs on the Internet. The catchiest viral Internet songs of all time are not only the pesky songs that get stuck in our heads but are also some of the best creations ever to come about in the early Internet times. From the original gangster meme of the hamster dance to the Trolololo to the classic Rick Roll, these songs are the best of the best available on YouTube.

Almost any video on YouTube can go from being nothing to completely viral, providing it has something that makes it hilarious, bizarre, or so awful that it's  actually awesome. There's no exact science to becoming an Internet meme, but as these catchy Internet songs prove, once you reach virtual stardom, there is no going back. Ah, the power of the Internet. I'm sure even the musically oblivious 8th grader would approve.

This is along the lines of those viral videos that are popular purely for how random they are. The confidence and drive with which this song contains actually makes sense, though, is what makes it so great.

If this song were a person, it would probably think it was perfectly normal. This is why this song rules.

If there was grandfather of catchy Internet meme songs, the "Hamster Dance" would be it. This ditty, posted back in 1997 on a little site named Geocities.com, features dozens of animated hamsters dancing to the song "Whistle Stop" by Roger Miller. Years later, the hokey song is still stuck in our heads.

When does a banana dance? During Peanut Butter Jelly Time, duh. Peanut Butter Jelly Time first started in 2002 after the release of the song from The Buckwheat Boyz, as an animated GIF featuring a banana with arms, legs and a face, dancing to the catchy track. It quickly became more popular than sliced bread and even appeared on an episode of the animated series "Family Guy."

Jon Lajoie spells out exactly what he wants from women in his love song titled "Show Me Your Genitals." Brought to us by the same Canadian comedian who wrote the "2 Girls 1 Cup Song," this classy number includes lyrics such as "It's not sexist 'cause I'm saying it in a song, That's right bitch, now take off your thong..." It gets better. There's a second song in the series titled "Show Me Your Genitals 2: E=MC Vagina."

What's better than one rainbow? Two rainbows, now forever known as the magical "Double Rainbow." First shown in a YouTube video by Hungrybear9562, who cries in awe of the beautiful sight, the "Double Rainbow" was transformed into a catchy Auto-Tune song by the masterminds behind the "Bed Intruder Song," The Gregory Brothers. It's so bright, so vivid, ahhh!
