"(Song) But It Keeps Getting Faster" refers to a series of video game and pop songs remixed such that the tempo of the original track gradually increases over time.


The first "…but it keeps getting faster" remix is of the song "Bonetrousle" from the Undertale soundtrack. It was made by Tumblr user stainedinlavenderblood[12] and posted February 2nd, 2016. On February 8th, a GitHub website[1] created by user joezeng featured the track and it was posted to the /r/undertale subreddit[2] by redditor Falzar. It gained 583 points, 98% upvotes as of September 19th, 2016. The same day, redditor walle303 posted a link to an index[3] to "keeps getting faster" remixes he and joezing had made to the /r/undertale subreddit in a thread titled "(Insert Song Name) except it keeps getting faster [Index Page],"[4] which gained 138 points and 98% upvotes.


Over the next few months, "Keeps Getting Faster" remixes remained part of the Undertale fandom, as dozens of Undertale related remixes appeared on Youtube. There was also a Super Mario Brothers 2 remix uploaded to Youtube by theFizzyNalor.[5]

The format began to spread outside of video game soundtracks to pop songs and other types of music in August 2016. On August 18th, Youtuber "chopping boss" posted a Nutshack Edit that gained over 130,000 views in a month.[8] Another contributing factor to the remix-style's spread was the inception of Keeps-Getting-Faster,[6] a Tumblr dedicated to posting "Keeps Getting Faster" remixes.

Other popular remixess of theirs include a-ha's "Take On Me,"[9] The Killers' "Mr. Brightside,"[10] and "All Star". [11]
