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.

    Also called "Pop-Tart Cat," Nyan Cat is an eight-bit abomination of a cat, which features the body of a cherry toaster pastry, that can fly though outer space leaving a rainbow-colored trail. Nyan Cat graced our computer screens in April 2011 and quickly became the most popular meme in the galaxy and spawned numerous remixes and spinoffs. The original, of course, is the best.

    Resurrected from a clip from the 1960s in the Soviet Union, "Trololololo" is an amazing musical clip performed by Russian singer Edward Anatolevich Hill. Actually titled "I am very glad, because I’m finally back home," "Trololololo" is also known as the "Russian Rickroll" and led to dozens of covers and remixes, including one notable version from acclaimed actor Christoph Waltz.

    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.
