SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS – Jellyfish Jam

In 1998, Mark Governor, along with his longtime recording engineer Glenn Nishida wrote and produced a song called Stadium Rave for a compilation CD called Clubmix. Later that year, the animators of a new animated series called Spongebob Squarepants used the song in an extended dance sequence in the episode Jellyfish Jam. In the episode, Spongebob takes home a jellyfish to make him his pet. The jellyfish loves to dance to the song Stadium Rave with Spongebob, and when Spongebob goes to bed, the jellyfish lets in his friends and they have an all night rave, infuriating Spongebob’s neighbor Squidward. The episode soon became one of the most popular of the series, and when YouTube became popular, kids would post videos of themselves dancing to “Stadium Rave” imitating Spongebob. (In many cases they would mistakenly title the song Jellyfish Jam). Eventually those fans grew older and some became DJs. They started to post remixes of the song on social media, and then outdo each other by making a one hour mix, then a 6 hour mix, and then a 12 hour mix of the song. (This is inspired by Squidward’s complaint that Spongebob parties with the jellyfish for 12 hours.)

The song Stadium Rave has become one of the most popular and recognizable memes on the internet, used not only on YouTube, but Instagram and TikTok and even in the video game Guitar Hero. Nods to the meme in pop culture have used Stadium Rave in commercials and TV shows. It has been sampled in hip hop tracks, and many cover versions To date, it has ben used thousands of times, has millions of listens and views, and remains popular to this day.
