The Sweet Caroline (Relevant DNB Remix), also known as Sweet Caroline (Diagnostix Bootleg), is a U.K. jungle, drum and bass (DNB) and dubstep remix of Neil Diamond's 1969 song "Sweet Caroline" that was created by the YouTube channel RELEVANT DNB in late 2020. In September 2022, it trended on TikTok due to a mass perception of how bad it was. It was later deleted by Relevant DNB on YouTube but not before it trended on Twitter in memes similar to Hudson Mohawke's 'Cbat.'
On September 27th, 2020, the YouTube channel RELEVANT DNB uploaded a YouTube video titled, "Neil Diamond – Sweet Caroline (Diagnostix Bootleg) (Free Download)," which was a U.K. jungle, drum & bass and dubstep remix of Neil Diamond's song "Sweet Caroline." In one month, the video received roughly 11,000 views. By August 2022, the YouTube video gained roughly 375,200 views. In September 2022, the video was made private by RELEVANT DNB due to it going viral on TikTok for negative feedback. A reupload was posted on September 26th, 2022, by the channel Juneau, gaining roughly 32,300 views in one day (shown below).
On September 23rd, 2022, TikToker jackgrindrod_ posted a screen-recording of the song, writing in text overlay, "Wtf is this," while scrolling through the video's comment section. Over the course of four days, the video received roughly 3.1 million plays and 535,000 likes (shown below, left). Soon after, various TikTokers started using the sound in their videos. For instance, on September 25th, 2022, TikToker barosanto used it to make a joke about being in an Alberta, Canada nightclub, gaining roughly 102,700 plays and 9,600 likes in two days (shown below, right).
On September 24th, 2022, Twitter user komm_breakfast tweeted jackgrindrod_'s TikTok, captioning it, "my fucking stomach hurts from laughing this has gotta be the worst shit i’ve ever heard in my life lmfao," and receiving roughly 596,900 views and 56,800 likes in three days (shown below).

The negative attention prompted RELEVANT DNB to make the video private on September 26th, 2022, however, going into the rest of September 2022, the humorous discourse continued on social media, aided by Juneau's YouTube reupload of the song.
Reddit Guy's Weird Sex Music / "Cbat" by Hudson Mohawke
Reddit Guy's Weird Sex Music or 'Cbat' by Hudson Mohawke refers to reactions and memes made about a post to the /r/TIFU subreddit in which a user complains about his girlfriend's frustration with the music he prefers to play during intercourse. The story initially went viral on Twitter, before migrating to TikTok where people attempted to replicate how he would likely thrust to the beat of the song in question, "Cbat" by Hudson Mohawke.
Making A Beat At 11 PM
Making A Beat At 11 PM refers to a series of memes on TikTok in which a man is seen dancing and getting lit while mixing a beat in his room at 11 p.m. with the beat then immediately sounding horrible upon waking up and checking it the following day, which then shows the man with an awestruck face as he recognizes how bad it is. The video went viral in late 2019 and became a trend on the platform over the following years with other people using the sound in skits of their own, sometimes using the phrasal template "Making A X At 11 PM" with things like "Art" replacing "Beat" but having similar outcomes.
