daily dot theme song
One year, 3 million served, and finally, a catchy tune to call our very own.

After one year and over 3 million readers, I think it’s time the Daily Dot finally had its own theme song.

That’s why, for the Dot’s first anniversary, I made a music video devoted to all the communities we cover, with the help of my Explainer Music colleague Andrew Bean.

Lyrics:

A new site was born one year ago
Devoted to people who call the Web home
Viral video creators, all kinds of meme makers
Reply girls, redditors, trolls, and dogshamers


Weird Etsys, weird Wikipedia entries
Pinterest, the Pirate party, and r/trees
Bloggers, Kickstarters, fake Twitter accounts
And whatever's on YouTube right now


All the news that's fit to print,
retweet, like, reblog, upvote, or pin
It's the Daily Dot: hometown paper of the Web
It's the Daily Dot: a record of the Internet


Who's the authority on bronies? The Daily Dot
Who exposes SOPA cronies? The Daily Dot
And when that guy from the Atlantic was banned by Reddit?
Who was there on the spot? The Daily Dot


From a Morning GIF and the latest remix
To 4chan and Anonymous
Their beat is Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, Reddit, Etsy, Canvas, Pinterest
And sometimes even Google+


All the news that's fit to print,
retweet, like, reblog, upvote, or pin
It's the Daily Dot: hometown paper of the Web
It's the Daily Dot: a record of the Internet

10 definitive Daily Dot stories
Even with more than 6,000 stories filling up the Daily Dot’s infinite scroll, there are quite a few that stand out as being particularly indicative of our overall mission: to be the paper of record for the Web, to go deeper and capture the people behind the memes, viral videos, and breaking news in online communities.

Little girl keeps 6 hungry pit bulls in line as she prepares their meal
This 4-year-old girl could probably give the Dog Whisperer a run for his money. Mealtime for dogs is always something of a production. When you own six pit bulls, it’s akin to an entire Broadway show in terms of effort and entertainment. One 4-year-old whose family owns six hungry pit bulls decided to take charge over their meal time, and as you can see below, she used the power of the kibble to gain complete control over the situation.
