Gallagher Killed the Internet Star
To the tune of "Video Killed the Radio Star," with apologies to the Buggles

I saw you in a bookstore back in '02
I'd refresh all night to see updates coming through
Though just a n00b it didn't stop me loving you
(Oh-uh-oh)

Then things got boring when you split with l33t Largo
Filling the strip with rot of sad girls in the snow
Do you remember the game jokes used to go
(Oh-uh-oh)

I read your fan board
(Oh-uh-oh)
What are they mad for?
(Oh-uh-oh)

Gallagher killed the internet star!
Gallagher killed the internet star!
Plot lines came and stole the show
(Oh-uh-oh)

So now we're long past the Second Fanboy War
We read the archives of the fun that came before
Now when you update the pages are a bore

(Oh-uh-oh)
It was a fun strip
(Oh-uh-oh)
Too bad, a dull strip

Gallagher killed the internet star!
Gallagher killed the internet star!

Angsty fans and angry rows
We can't fast-forward the strip's too slow

(Oh-uh-uh-oh)
(Oh-uh-uh-oh)

Gallagher killed the internet star!
Gallagher killed the internet star!

Angsty fans and angry rows
We can't fast-forward the strip's too slow
Plot lines came and stole the show
Put the blame on Kimiko!

You are~ an internet sta~r
You are~ an internet sta~r

Gallagher killed the internet star!
Gallagher killed the internet star!
Gallagher killed the internet star!
Gallagher killed the internet star!
(You are~ an internet sta~r...)
Gallagher killed the internet star!
Gallagher killed the internet star...
Not as good as Wavebird_Ocelot's. But imagine old blue eyes singing to the tune of When I Was 17...

When Rodney was here
It was a very good strip
It was a very good strip for gamer nerds
Who liked Neverwinter Nights
Romero jokes would delight
And l33t speak would appear
When Rodney was here

When Rodney was here
It was a very good strip
It was a very good strip for impatient nerds
Who can't wait for a week
Simple jokes they would seek
They had no reason to ph34r
When Rodney was here

When Rodney was here
It was a very good strip
It was a very good strip for shallow nerds
For whom thinking is rare
No plot? Didn't care
Largo drank more beer
When Rodney was here

But now the plot is deep
With sad girls in the snow
And now it can touch you deep in your soul
And Fred's artwork is great
Yes sometimes that makes him late
But it's a lot better, you hear
Than when Rodney was here
