Viral songs on YouTube, with videos, is not just a list of funny YouTube songs, but 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 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 anything can rise from being just another Internet video to full blown viral video providing it has something that makes it hilarious, bizarre or so awful that it's 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.

    Bed Intruder

    Popularized by The Gregory Brothers on "Auto-Tune the News," the "Bed Intruder Song" takes bits and pieces from a viral news clip, Auto Tunes it and plays it back for all to enjoy. Featuring Antoine Dodson, the clip warns residents to "hide yo kids" and "hide yo wife" against a home-intruding rapist on the loose. For anyone that says crime does not pay, The Gregory Brothers sold over 100,000 copies of the track. Do the math.

    Keyboard Cat

    Using footage originally shot in 1984, "Keyboard Cat" not only wears clothes, but he also plays an electronic keyboard, much to the envy of other cats around the world. When Keyboard Cat is not playing people off stage after a poor performance, he's appearing in commercials, television shows and video games. Okay, really this cat is not that special, rather a cat named Fatso being maneuvered by his owner, Charlie Schmidt. Whatever, it works.

    Play us off Keyboard Cat.

    OK Go - Here It Goes Again

    Making OK Go a household name, "Here It Goes Again" is not only an Internet sensation but also a billboard hit having entered the top 40 after its 2006 debut. What exactly made this random video from a random band a hit? The elaborate video featuring the band dancing on treadmills, filmed in a single take that needed 17 tries to perfect, that's what. OK Go went on to perform the dance at the 2006 VMAs and take home a Grammy Award for the video. Not bad for some unknown indie group from Chicago!

    Hamster Dance

    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, 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.

    Techno Viking

    Filmed at the popular F***parade in Berlin, Germany, in 2000, the "Techno Viking" is part scary, part bizarre and part hilarious all in one. A large buff man, complete with Thor's hammer around his neck and an impressive beard, stars in the clip where he can be seen first protecting a woman from a seemingly drunk guy, then leading the crowd in dance while walking down the street. This here is one techno dancer you'd surely not want to meet in a dark alley.
