"Running in the 90's" is a Eurobeat techno song performed by Italian disco artist Maurizio De Jorio under the stage name Max Coveri and written by Pamela Prandoni, Laurent Gelmetti and Clara Moroni.[7] The song is most often used in YTMND sites and montage parodies and/or to incorporate humor on a certain subject.


"Running in the 90's" first appeared on the compilation album Super Eurobeat Vol. 85 in 1998.[7] After the release, the song received critical acclaim and praise from prominent reviewers. Eurobeat once reviewed (in a now-deleted article) that, "The action and the rush of adrenaline the song delivered was astounding, we haven't seen anything like it."


The song grew popular as a meme after it was featured multiple times in the Japanese anime Initial D: First Stage. The first time the song was used was as the background for the final race scene of Episode 4: "Into the Battle!"[1] (shown below).

On November 3rd, 2009, YouTuber JoeDutchCoast uploaded the song to YouTube,[2] and has gained 45 million views April 2021 (shown below). YouTube user PsychoDon904 also uploaded the song on Jan 7, 2010, and it has since gained over 1 million views and 8,900 upvotes.[6]

Throughout the 2010s, the song became a common subject of YTMNDs and YouTube remixes. On November 20th, 2017, YouTuber Nickimaki Clips posted a compilation of memes featuring the song, gaining over 6 million views (shown below, left). On August 26th of the same year, YouTuber Sdronk did the same, gaining over 1.1 million views (shown below, right).

Lol, Internet

Lol, Internet is a series of YTMNDs featuring Ronald McDonald driving a car with his finger pointed at the sky under the caption: "lol, internet". The YTMND became popular after a version accompanied by Running in the 90's was uploaded to the site. Originating from 4chan, the phrase is often used to remind Internet users to not take the Internet so seriously.
