Back when the internet went abuzz with the likes of ChatGPT and Midjourney, it became clear that AI trends had evolved outside of the more serious fields it had been associated with up until now. It’s around that time that we saw TikTok get inundated with AI-generated cover songs. It brought us a cover of Drake’s ‘Passionfruit’ by Ariana Grande and another of Justin Bieber’s ‘Love Yourself’ by Kanye West.

A couple of months into the trend and big popstars and rappers have now been replaced with toothbrushes, South Park’s Eric Cartman, and even Toad of the Super Mario franchise. Although I can’t give you much of an explanation as to why exactly everyone seems so obsessed with these viral yet very strange covers, I can bring you an extensive list of the best ones out there:

1. Can’t Feel My Face by Peter Griffin


2. Baltimore Anthem by Minecraft villager


3. Cupid by Toad


4. Hips Don’t Lie by Eric Cartman


5. Don’t Stop Me Now by Patrick


6. Billie Jean by King Julien


7. Beautiful Girl by Homer


8. Yellow by Andrew Tate


9. 7 Years by the whole SpongeBob SquarePants crew


10. Die For You by Squidward


11. Set Fire To The Rain by Stewie


12. Cooler Than Me by Stitch


13. Sprinter by toothbrush and electric drill


14. Gangsta’s Paradise by Minecraft door


15. Freed From Desire by mosquito


16. Rap God by chicken


17. Whiskey, cola & tequila by chainsaw
