Videos beget more, similar videos, usually set to the same song. Now, major labels are scrambling to find their next TikTok star.

Ways To Say "Dame" refers to a series of videos popular on TikTok in which people lip-sync to a call-and-response song that instructs the listener to say the Japanese word "Dame" which roughly means "no good" in different inflections.

Why Mona, Wannabe This song was released by band Why Mona back in , but you probably know it better from every single e-girl transformation video ever made reaching fever pitch at the end of last year. Who knew you could make the Spice Girls' biggest bop even better by making it moody enough to feature in a sex scene on Riverdale , eh? Why Mona knew, apparently.

Released on the official soundtrack to the movie by the same name, this song is just over a decade old. The movie is an adaptation of the Japanese film about a five-year-old boy develops a relationship with Ponyo, a young goldfish princess.
