Charlie covering his ears
Two annoying girls moved into the apartment above me.
I'm forced to hear every dumb thing they say.
These are my letters to them.


“Hey Claire, what day is it?” Oh no, please don’t sing–“It’s Friday, Friday, gotta get down on Friday.” It’s Thursday!

    Ooh. A new low.

    • Walker says:

      Nobody commented on your comment so I thought I would.

      • Lola says:

        Well thanks, that makes me feel special! I’ve never had the first post before but was determined not to be one of those annoying “FIRST!!! BAM!!!!” people…

  2. Justin Smith says:

    Guess what you get to endure again tomorrow?!?

  3. Madeline says:

    This post basically made my life.

  4. Liz says:

    hey, at least they can’t be any worse than the girl that actually sings that song. i heard her on Leno the other night and at first i thought that the mic was picking up some feedback, but no, it was her. she sounds like cats fighting.

  5. anjaa says:

    is it weird that i can picture them saying this?

  6. PorscheLuvr says:

    Charlie, have you ever considered moving?
    Please don’t.

  7. Charlie McDowell says:

    They also said, “I can’t wait for her next single!” I can.

    • Taylor D says:

      You should play a Chas McD demo for them. I can totally see that becoming their new jam;)

      • Dolores Umbridge says:

        Charlie, have you ever thought about blasting The Beatles or The Rolling Stones? Just so these girls get a taste of what real talent is?

        If that untalented Autotuned nimrod Rebecca Black can get famous through that crappy song, *I* could be the next Kristin Chenoweth.

    • Charlotte says:

      There was an interview with Rebecca Black (who sings “Friday”) and the interviewer asked Rebecca, “What do you think about the fact that people are saying your song is the worst song ever written?” and Rebecca goes “Well, at least they’re listening to it,,,,?” Sigh.

    • Kevin says:

      New from Rebecca Black, “Pizza Day”!

      • Liz says:

        damn, i wanted to sing about pizza. maybe i’ll call my song Sloppy Loe Day. it will be all about how high school kids like it when their school serves sloppy joes for lunch and they have to decide whether they went to eat it with fries or mac and cheese.

  8. Slim says:

    Seems like they should be willing to come downstairs if you provide cereal.

  9. Julia says:

    Partyin’ Partyin’ YEAH! :P
    She sang 2 lines of the national anthem during an interview and she actually has a nice voice. I think it’s just the dreadful song.

  10. Tegan says:

    Silly GAM, it seems that your calender’s wrong,
    Or your mouth and your brain simply can’t get along.
    Who knows, they might really be genius inside!
    (Not likely, but here at DGAM, our hope has not died..)
    After all, it seems GAM defender does well
    How long his faith lasts, I guess time will tell.
    Still I wonder if either of our GAM can sing,
    So tell us Charlie, how much talent they bring
    To the musical moments the girls seem fond of;
    Is it angels or toad-croaks you hear up above?

    Ohh my god. Toad croaks. I really had nothing better. My apologies.

    • Manda says:

      I thought it was witty, much better than anything I could come up with.

    • GAM Defender says:

      Lmao wow, I just realized I was in this. I’ll keep it up as long as the website’s alive.

    • Tegan says:

      Haha, thank you, manda, but you never know. And GAM defender, it was my tribute to you because I enjoy your posts almost as much as I enjoy people’s efforts to get you to stop posting.

  11. Stephanie says:

    I was just torturing someone with that song about an hour ago. “Guess what? Tomorrow is Friday, Friday…”

  12. Emily says:

    Charlie, you poor man….I wish I could give you a hug just for being nice enough NOT to bang on the ceiling and holler at them to shut up.

  13. Emirah Charlotte says:

    oh my. i dislike that girl muchly. but i think the GAM should do thier own rendition of it! by they way, love your website!

  14. Dolores Umbridge says:

    Charlie, is it true that DGAM is being made into a TV show? Please say yes. I desperately want you to say yes.

  15. Sarah says:

    Roses are Red
    Rebecca is Black
    Hear her torturous tune?
    I’d rather be stabbed in the back.

  16. Leila says:

    Ok, so I just listened to that song for the first time ever…. and it’s terrible!! Eeek! I’m so sorry that you have to listen to them sing that, Charlie!

  17. Sarah says:

    This sounds like my grade for a week…

  18. Zeina says:


    And I thought nobody liked her!

  19. Kamella says:


    • Dolores Umbridge says:

      My sister from another mister is 11 and incredibly talented. People don’t say that she’s an amazing singer because she’s 11. They say that because it’s true.

  20. Sarah says:

    So after hearing this song, I realized that people that like her compare her to JBiebs. I’ve never actually heard one of his songs so I looked him up. 1) She is nothing like him 2) he’s not auto-tuned 3) I think I have Bieber Fever…

    • somegirl says:

      i hate the biebs, but this slayyyed me, love it

      • Sarah says:

        I think it’s the dancing that got me. Or maybe that his lyrics are real and don’t list the days of the week. Not his looks though. Probably the dancing…

  21. Rescue Ninja Chuck says:

    So, I kept seeing her name pop up everywhere, and I literally just googled it to figure out what everyone was talking about. This new world of overnight pop stars is getting a little out of hand…

  22. Alessandra says:

    Well now we can equate that Rebecca Black and the GAM Girlies are on the same IQ level.

  23. Beth says:

    Oh my god, I am so sorry

  24. GinnyPotter says:

    Roses are red, violets are blue, if Rebecca Black wins ANY awards, Kanye you know what to do…

  25. KimeeFace says:

    Oh dear. Today, my drama teacher left the class for a few minutes and some freshman started singing that song. It was terrible, but luckily when he came back he gave them all demerits.

  26. GAM Defender says:

    This is my favorite song ever actually…

  27. Katie says:

    It’s Thursday, Thursday, gotta get down on Thursday.
    Yesterday was Wednesday, today it is Thursday. Tomorrow is Friday and Saturday comes afterwaaaards

  28. ILikeYouILoveYou says:

    Somebody shoot me. I *beep*ing HATE that song! DX<

  29. Alex says:

    ARRRGGHHH! MY EARS!!! I am going to pray that this song is NEVER mentioned again!!

  30. TJ says:

    It may be the loss of sanity the very existence of such a song has caused me talking, but I’m legitimately beginning to enjoy Friday. Totally going to see Rebecca Black on her upcoming mall tour.

  31. Kotoka says:

    After reading this, I thought, “But it’s Wednesday!” GAM moment… Spring break can really mess with one’s head…

  32. Rayne says:

    I have nothing against Rebecca Black the only crime she’s committed is make bad music, it’s not her fault though. I blame the parents.

  33. Hermoine Granger says:

    today i freshman started singing this sing in class. i yelled at them

  34. Belle says:

    Well, tomorrow is Thursday. And Sunday comes after.

  35. Taylor says:

    Don’t you just love how now we all know most of the days of the week?? Thanks Rebecca!! :)

  36. Tina says:

    Hey! I was correct! I predicted they were going to say something about that song! Kingsley Shacklebolt, you were correct too!

    • Dolores Umbridge says:

      Speaking of Kingsley, whatever happened to my fellow Harry Potter commenters?

  37. Michelle says:

    this blog makes me feel a little less alone… my neighbors suck

  38. alexaluvs says:

    This song is now on the “not at school list” at my high school. It was part of our morning announcements today that if you sing this song or play it on an instrument or ipod you will get detention

  39. Team Black. Siriusly. says:

    I. Hate. That. Song. So. Friggin. Much.

  40. Lord Voldemort says:

    UH! I cant get her song out of my head…. Wow my favorite part is “FUN FUN FUN!” its just so stupid!

  41. angel says:

    i get earworms very easily, doesn’t matter whether it was a good song or not. So I don’t think I’m going to be listening to this Rebecca Black girl.

    Sometimes, it is good to not be in US.

  42. Liz says:

    Has anyone else heard the acoustic version? It popped up on youtube when I went to see what this was(CAUTION: Murderous rage inducing). Let’s just hope the GAMs short attention spans stay true to form.

  43. Sonia says:

    okay umm i seriously don’t see GAM Defender’s point in sticking up for the girls…GAM Defender, you annoy the hell out of me. This website is to laugh and comment on how ridiculous the girls living above Charlie are. Not STICK UP FOR THEM which is kind of the OPPOSITE of the whole point of this website. Please. Stop.

    • That Itallian says:

      Actually, I love the defender and all their awesome optimism…
      don’t be hatin’.

    • Holly says:

      Oh sweetheart, I’m pretty sure GAM defender was kidding about that….

    • angel says:

      Hahah. GAM defender is funny.

      You got to appreciate the hard work he puts in just to defend the GAM. Keep up the hard work GAM Defender.

    • Chelsea says:

      Thank you!!! He acts like he’s trying to bring this website d

      • Chelsea says:

        Oh my gosh. Dumb touch screen!

        Anyway, he acts like he’s trying to bring this website down on its knees, and he’s sucking all the fun out of it, for us at least.

      • GAM Defender says:

        I told you directly I didn’t want to bring the site down.

    • Heather says:

      I totally agree. The point of commenting in online forums is to find a group of people who appreciate what we like in the exact same way we do, without fear of alternate points of view or varying senses of humor. GAM Defender, by facetiously defending the girls above Charlie, is threatening our ability to foster a mob mentality. I mean, now I have to learn to spell 4 syllable words like “facetiously” and pray for the invention of a sarcasm font. What next, am I expected to learn proper capitalization and use of ellipsis?

      • Cygnus says:

        “Did you ever know that you’re my Hero, and everything I would like to be….” Singing this one for you!

      • GAM Defender says:

        I was unaware this was a totalitarian online community…

      • Heather says:

        My darling GAM Defender, I would like to explicitly state that I adore you. Were I given a sarcasm font even the two Girls Above Me hating on you would realize that the joke is on them.

      • GAM Defender says:

        Ha, I figured you were being funny. But most of the arguments against me have been exactly like that so I assume you’re on the other side of my 50% approval rating.

      • Cygnus says:

        NAH, Defender Baby, she ripped the haters a new one in the most articulate, subtle and scathing way possible. That is why I sang for her. I love your posts and am now a big fan of Heather!

      • GAM Defender says:

        I was wondering, “Since when did Cyg hate me?”

      • Heather says:

        Now that’s how I like to roll; skip joining the family and immediately begin gathering fans. You can tell that I enjoy being the narcissistic egotist because this is now the 2nd time I’m responding to my own comment.

      • GAM Defender says:

        I’m the cat that shows up around your house and everyone feeds and pets but some people are kinda pissed off cause I keep pissin’ on the welcome mat.

      • Dolores Umbridge says:


    • GAM Defender says:

      Why does there have to be only one opinion on this site? If Charlie had a problem with it, I’m sure he would tell me. And I’m trying not to lash out at anyone, I’ve said before it’s just fun and games. I defend somethings they say and once in a while reply to things that weren’t directed towards me. It’s supposed to be amusing, not bring down the site. I’ve been on here for a long time, why would I want to bring it down?

      • Death Eater says:

        I get where you’re coming from.

        The Death Eaters love you, so you’re doing good :D

      • Charlie McDowell says:

        GAM Defender, I propose an old fashion joust. You in?

      • Jinxed says:

        *hugs* I enjoy your posts, GAM Defender, and I am stricken enough by everyone’s harsh words against you that I’m actually posting for the first time since finding this site. Your delightful optimism makes me smile. ^_^

      • GAM Defender says:

        Place and time- I’ll be there.

      • Leila says:

        Charlie, joust, as in riding horses whilst wearing armor, carrying lances and charging at each other? Or the kind where you’re fighting with swords? Or the kind where you stand back to back and then walk ten paces, then turn and shoot? So many options!!

      • Lorreina says:

        darling I have no hate for you in fact your very name made me love you ;) though you gotta admit, these girls would be the type to enjoy a terrible song such as “Friday”

      • Cygnus says:

        But wait. A joust would be for the honor of the ladies. I think we can all agree that A) these ladies could not grasp an abstract concept like honor and B) given their conduct, they have precious little intrinsic honor left to vie for.

        ewww and can you imagine the favors given to you two noble knights…. jousting with La Perla thongs fluttering from your lances not just anachronistic, it’s wrong!

      • GAM Defender says:

        “Honor” from the girls?

        … I’ll prepare my horse immediately.

  44. Stephanie says:

    So, it’s midnight (Central) where I live, so guess what? It’s Friday, Friday…

  45. Jordan says:

    Should I feel stupid for having no clue who this Rebecca Black person is… or should I just be greatful and continue to listen to classic rock?

  46. Jamie Lynn says:

    Oh jesus.

    That song is stupid.

    and believe it or not

    them singing it,
    makes them even more stupid.

  47. pb says:

    so good being on the other side of the world in a timezone well ahead of the usa – i only just read this post and my friday is already almost over.

  48. Louisa says:

    I have only listened to ‘Friday’ once, I don’t get how anyone could listen to it enough to actually get past the stupidity of it to learn the lyrics. To be fair I think I was in shock.

  49. Claire says:

    I have never been so proud to share a name with one of these girls.

    • Dolores Umbridge says:

      I honestly got scared for a minute because you share a name. My first reaction was “OH MY GOD THEY FOUND IT!”

  50. Miles says:

    Haha Its a terrible song, but so catchy. And ridiculous. Its kind of like a car accident – you can’t help looking at it.

    My favorite part is where she is trying to decide where to sit but there is only one seat open.

    • Julia says:

      I like the fact that she is 13 yet her friends are driving a car. Last I checked that’s illegal.

      • Alice says:

        There’s also a part where they’re standing up in the back of the car going down the highway…pretty sure that’s illegal too…

  51. PorscheLuvr says:

    Charlie, have you considered getting revenge? Like you doing what they do. Everyday.

  52. jrizzle says:

    thats songs been stuck in my head for soooooooo long! its so bad!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  53. Ashlea says:

    AGH! I gotta make up my mind! Which seat can I take? :P

    As a hearing impaired person, I generally appreciate the sound of well, just about everything! This however, made me cringe. Fun Fun Fun Fun!

  54. Tigerr says:

    Rebecca Black’s only problem in life seems to be figuring out which seat to sit in…That’s the thing that annoys me the most. Here I am attempting to learn for my AS exams, and THAT is her biggest problem?!

  55. Toemailer says:

    They are still there are they?

  56. CookiesVs.Cupcakes says:

    Hate that song but, y’all know she didn’t WRITE it right? There’s like this company you can take your teen to and *they* write and you have no choice but to sing it. She still sucks though.

    • Chelsea says:

      Personally, I think the fact that adults wrote it, and then allowed the recording to be released, just makes it even worse.

      • Cygnus says:

        Think that warrants a call to Child Protective Services… she is a minor and is clearly in the clutches of horrible people. Total Lemony Snickett worthy plot line to follow.

    • pb says:

      she still chose to sing it, though. she could have told them she wasn’t going to sing something with such painfully asinine lyrics.

  57. Jillian says:

    Rebecca Black is the best thing to happen to these girls. Finally, they have a catchy tune to help them learn the days of the week.

    • bandgeek4life says:

      What about the Black Eyed Peas, “Monday Tuesday Wednesday and Thursday, Friday Saturday Saturday and Sunday:

      • Heather says:

        Having two Saturdays (ala the Black-Eyed Peas’ song) probably would work for these girls, but Rebecca Black does make a list without all that confusing repetition. Once they find jobs they can’t live with Eight Days a Week.

    • Sara says:

      Jillian, BEST COMMENT EVER!

  58. Lonely Girl says:

    I am forever thankfull that my taste in music is eccentric. I don’t think I’ve even heard of Rebecca Black.

  59. AmyD says:

    I feel amazingly lucky to be able to say I have not heard that song, nor do I ever want to.

  60. Alice says:

    The acoustic version isn’t much better.

  61. Jessie says:

    Oh dear… I think a small part of my soul just died.

  62. Keri Anne says:

    I’m sure this spiked youtube views of this song… Bless her heart. (Long time viewer, first time poster!) :)

  63. Prosopagnosia says:

    They are so dumb. They are really dumb. Foreal!

    • KimeeFace says:

      So dumb, so dumb, so dumb. He’s climbin in yo windows, he’s snatchin yo people up.

  64. Lizzzzzz says:

    I got dumped today, and this actually made me smile… at least im not as dumb as them :) thank you charlie for constantly making me smile when i think i cant.

    • Charlie McDowell says:

      I am sorry for your dumpage. But we’ve all been there and time will help. Any good guys on here for Lizzzzzz?

      • KimeeFace says:

        Well, I’m a lesbian and according to a school-wide vote me and every other lesbian in GSA have been named honorary guys. Do I count?

      • Lizzzzzz says:

        Thanks Charlie :) i know time will help. But it would really be convenient if there was some magic remote (think the movie Click) to fast forward through it all…

  65. bandgeek4life says:

    Charlie, what’s the other girls name, I have been wondering forever. (long time reader, first post)

  66. Holly says:

    I feel your pain. My attitude towards school has turned from grudgingly optimistic to pure hatred due to that song.

  67. maria says:


  68. Ylva says:

    Saw another video on my facebook wall (gotta do something about my friend list…) today and felt “what the heck, I gotta check up what in the world this song is”.

    I didn’t listen. I am so glad. Simply the lyrics makes me wonderfully happy that I’m not home in Sweden, but in Japan, where they only play japanese music on tv.

    Btw (sorry for text-walling). I just got this: Oh God, this is so America, when reading all you Harry Potter related names and so. Crap it, in Sweden people hanging out on these sort of sites bully the shit out of HP-fans. Don’t take me wrong, I just think it’s fun and very much America.

  69. Jahu311 says:

    Complete coincidence, that day was the first day I ever heard that song!

  70. Alicia says:

    Hey guys.

    The girls are in love with the Friday song,
    They sing it loud and all day long.
    The rest of us laugh because it’s so bad,
    Black thought it was good, that’s what makes it so sad.
    While she keeps singing about where to sit,
    I’ll remember next time not to listen to her shit.
    It sucks to be Charlie, he has to hear it a lot,
    Until the girls quit singing…I doubt they’ll ever stop.

  71. anonymous says:

    So Charlie, do you think they’ll ever realize that you’re blogging about all the dumb things they say?

  72. Becca says:

    BEST SONG EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    lol, jk. the GAM are probobly the only people on the planet that like that song.

  73. MacKenzie says:

    I am actually musically talented (not to sound conceited I just am) and I heard this song and literally just died inside and I could totally picture the GAM singing it like rockin’ out to it and it hurts my heart lol Seriously best post ever though:)

  74. Just wanted to share your post…

    […]We don’t hesitate to share things which we feel useful for our visitors. SO, we have linked back to your site. Thanks.[…]…

  75. Christina says:

    I feel your pain Charlie. Every girl at my school has been singing this for weeks. I’ve been dying.. =/

    • Tammy says:

      Yup and the worst thing is when evrybody is singing that dumb song ALL the time, it get stuck in your head and you automaticly start singing it too. :3 I tried to shut myself up many, many times last week. C=

    • Chelsea says:

      Are you kidding? If anyone was to sing it at my school, it would be the guys! (Thankfully, not yet! :) )

  76. Jenny says:

    Gah please post pics of them! I’ve always wanted to see their faces

  77. Link Building Services…

    Best Link Building Services…

  78. bri says:

    So, is it just me or is that song actually stupid? Like, i don’t know how that chick got a career because the song is just absolutely annoying to the fullest extent. It made me so mad the other day when I saw that it was highly rated on itunes. That girl seriously has no talent.

  79. Mr. Adam says:

    All I do is laugh at the video, especially her awkward “friends” back-up dancers. Hilarious.

  80. Lauren says:

    Heh. There’s nothing ironic about that song. Did you catch the rapper in there? He makes the video legit.

  81. Paladin says:

    The shit you put up with, Charlie…

  82. AmyD says:

    Did anyone else try to come to the site yesterday and it was not here?!?! I about died!

  83. says:


  84. Matt says:

    Have you ever felt that your past experiences with these girls clouds your mind an causes you to judge them unfairly? My friends have done the same exact thing and forgetting the day of the week is also quite normal.

  85. Louisa says:

    Kind of wondering where Charlie is…Surely the girls have said more stupid things already its been four days already!

  86. Non-Sparkling Vampire Girl says:

    Now I have this song stuck in my head. I think my brain is gonna explode.

  87. Erin says:

    ^^ diddo

  88. Rachel says:

    It makes me glad to know that you have more annoying neighbors than me…because when I’m listening to my upstairs neighbor’s 30-pound Labrador run around up there and wanting to go all Friends with the broomstick on them, it makes me happy to know that at least my neighbors aren’t singing the Friday song. That I know of, anyway. :)

  89. Kate says:
