Pumped Up Kicks

"Pumped Up Kicks" is an indie pop song by the band Foster the People, which was originally released as the band’s debut single in September 2010. The song’s lyrics are written as a monologue from the perspective of a homicidal teenager, who fantasizes about murdering other youths with “pumped up kicks” with a gun. Online, the song has been used in numerous remix videos about school shootings.



"Sam Hyde Is the Shooter"

Comedian Sam Hyde has been a target of a hoax campaign in which his name is invoked as a possible suspect in a number of major gun violence incidents across the United States since 2015, including the shootings in San Bernardino, California, Kalamazoo, Michigan, Hesston, Kentucky, Minneapolis, Minnesota, the Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs, Colorado, the U.S. Naval base in San Diego, California, the U.S. Air Force base in San Antonio, Texas, among many others. In July 2016, Hyde was once again falsely attributed by several European news outlets[18] as a suspect in the shooting spree at a shopping mall in Munich, Germany, resulting in the largest spike in search queries of his name to date.
