The Day The LOLcats Died: The Ultimate SOPA Protest Song

There are many ways to stand up to SOPA. Websites like Wikipedia and BoingBoing are dark, there's a rally in New York, and people everywhere are signing petitions and contacting their senators. My favourite method, though? A protest song to the tune of Don McLean's 'American Pie'.

Created by comedy team LaughPong, the song urges you to take action. If you still don't know exactly what SOPA is, then you should read our guide. Or just sing along. The chorus goes, altogether now:

Why, why are laws a thing you can buy? They got paid off, should be laid off, re-election denied, Our web means more than lawyers, lobbies and lies, So speak up before the internet dies, Speak up before the internet dies.

So keep calling. Keep emailing. Make it known that the internet was built on the same principle as the US: freedom. [LaughPong]
