To enter the contest, look for the lyrics below,  perform a cover of the song, and visit our SoundCloud page where you can upload it.


Contest participants are encouraged to produce some of the most stereotypical pop song music they can bear to play. Here's a breakdown of awesome prizes:


The Grand Prize:

  • Berkleemusic is offering the winner one free class at their online college for their upcoming September 27th term; they get to pick from over 130 cutting-edge classes. Did you want to take a class on Online Marketing With Topspin? Or, maybe you will decide that it's best to brush up on your Voice Technique or Slap Bass skills instead. The option is open.
  • Exclusive online marketing presence analysis and case study performed by the staff at the indie music marketing hub ReverbNation. This premier into optimizing the winners direct-to-fan efforts will be featured on Hypebot.
  • Jay Frank, Senior Vice President of Strategy at CMT and author of Future Hit.DNA, will perform a "hit-analysis" on one of the winner’s songs. Using the fifteen points he talks about in his book, he will provide the artist with advice on how to create their next chart topping hit song.
  • Bruce and I will also provide our personal consulting services the winner and featuring them as a exclusive Hypebot case study.



    But Wait… There's More Prizes!!!!!!!!!!!

    The Three Runner-Up Prizes:

    • Bruce and I will feature the three runner-ups on Hypebot, featuring each in their own insight-driven case study where we let the growing community analyze and advise the artist, based on their specific wants and needs.
    • Tunecore will distribute your album too.
    • SoundCloud yearly Lite accounts.
    • ReverbNation Press Kit for one year.
    • Bandzoogle subscription for one year.

    Awesome prizes, right? Thank our wonderful sponsors for that. In saying that, I think your ready to embarrass yourself a little and get your inner pop star on.


    What’s unique about the lyric is that the words are those used most often in the Top 50 selling downloads of this year. To illustrate how I used the data to write this lyric, I've color coordinated the words in the chorus. I used the largest words on the chart for the chorus and the smaller ones for the verses. Just so you know what kind of terrible awesomeness your getting in, here's a the full song lyric:

    The Hypebot Hit Song
    Look, my hands gonna touch this, ain’t gonna stop me now

    1. Ahaha. I love it. As an added bonus “Oh baby, yeah, Imma rock your body hard—like damn” is also what I will be using to pick up ladies tonight.

    2. @Voyno Please note, Hypebot is not liable for any subsequent or future damage done to your face by a backhand…. Use this pick up line responsibly.

    3. I presume you’re not expecting entries from heterosexual women?
      Because, you know, some of us might be musicians or songwriters … and some of us might actually read Hypebot.
      Didn’t realise that was short for “Hype Bottom” …

    4. Lame, Lame, Lame…..so typical. We need to step it up y’all or we’re really going to end up like the movie “Idiocracy.”
      Much Love

    5. i’ma kill you fools…lol..just kidding..but uhh..i got this one, i’m a machine.

    6. done…cause you know i get around…like that…oooohh baby yeah…..
      i’m bad…i had enough night…i wanna break luv …break the luv…all chicks sang…i had enough tonight!!!!!
      ;p is there any way we can trade these wonderful prizes for some hard cold cash??? just wondering..lol.

    7. Okay Ladies , I’m soooo sorry I got caught with this , sexist piece of work , and didn’t represent girl power please forgive me
      U Know… ‘it’s a man’s world BUT it wouldn’t be nothing without a woman or a girl’- so says my main man mr.James Brown.. ohhhyeahh, baby baby babaeh!!!!!! , .. so I decided to remix the song for the bull pen
      ur gurl A2thaJ
      New lyrics:
      Now look
      there anit way you can touch this
      rise to the top and can’t nobody stop me now
      let the boys believe
      i really get down
      take you back to my crib in New York
      Let you walk home, walk on
      you can get my number
      baby tweet me on i-phone
      I’m bound to keep it rock all night long
      boy you gotta know
      I’m a bonfide siren and you know my drink is strong
      Love your going down
      I had enough tonight
      I wanna break the luv
      cause bad

    8. This is retarded. I’ve never seen a stronger case for continuing to persue my own style of music and not getting sucked into the pop game – like bad.

    9. i kind of consider it very entertaining, like a little mental teaser of sort, it’s all just a formula and the formula makes money so the formula will not change only the ingedients.
      I don’t think anyone will agrue that the underground, indie, unsigned talent or whatever you call it is so massive and diverse and dare I say wonderful..but alas that is not the nature of the beast my friend.
      It’s like cattle, just control the lead steers and the herd follows..what can you do yeah it’s like bad ;p

    10. oh! if the voting process is going on throughout the contest, doesn’t that mean that it’s more likely to gather votes if your entry is first rather than last? i expect there are a quite a few people like me…being last-minute sorts.

    11. I assume entries are up-to-and-including tomorrow, 8/10? Is this correct? Ours is being mixed right now – and tomorrow is the earliest we’ll have it in.

    12. oh man…i took off early today from work and spent the past 12 hours working on this…and now they extended it for another month?? i’m so bummed.
