How a rock song became a meme among millennials: From The Washington Times
A group of students from Columbia University have created an ancient song, “A Rito Song,” that has been making the rounds online, drawing comparisons to the popular pop song “American Idiot.”
“Rito” is a popular video game character and is the protagonist of a video game in which players play the role of a rapper.
It was first released in 2005.
The song, which is a remix of a classic Japanese rock song, features an array of instruments, ranging from guitar to mandolin and drums.
In the song, the characters ritos, or raps, at random in a room, before being followed by an audience of friends and family.
It’s been viewed more than 5 million times on YouTube, with more than 50 million views in less than a year.
The students behind the “A Jap” project, which they call “Aron,” say they have a long history of creating music and art in their spare time, including using the computer in their dorm room to create a video series.
They say they are “ancient ritologists” and have “an interest in the history and culture of Japan.”
The song is being played in Japan by the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department and by the Shinsegae Museum in Osaka, according to a tweet from the project.
“We are not really an artist,” Aron said.
“We are just a bunch of people who like music.”
The students, who say they would like to have their work published in a popular Japanese magazine, say the song has a “unique, and unique voice,” as well as a “witty sense of humor.”
They have started a crowdfunding campaign to make their work available online, but have not yet been able to raise any funds.
They are hoping to raise $10,000 to publish the music online.
