Block the DiggBar

By Brian Briggs, Scott Small

Here's another one of our song parodies. This time it's "Block the DiggBar " to the tune of "Rock the Casbah " by The Clash.

Now Kevin Rose told the site admin
Navigates away must stop
When readers click the story links
The page views start to drop
The programmer he wrote his code
To frame the target sites
And Digg will always win
In those crazy Google fights

John Gruber don't like it
Blockin the DiggBar
Block the DiggBar
John Gruber don't like it
Blockin the DiggBar
Block the DiggBar

By order of the Fireball
We ban that framing bar
It generates the page views
With that crazy scripted bar
But the Digg coders they brought out
The electric coffee urn
The local Python coder
Got his Python coding cap
As soon as the Fireball
Had dropped his claim
They began to frame

John Gruber don't like it
Blockin the DiggBar
Block the DiggBar
John Gruber don't like it
Blockin the DiggBar
Block the DiggBar

Now over at the Reddit
Oh! they really laugh at 'em
The Digg crowd say it's cool
To dig this DiggBar thing
But as the wind changed direction
The backlash it grew higher
The Diggers caught a whiff
Of that crazy ball of Fire

John Gruber don't like it
Blockin the DiggBar
Block the DiggBar
John Gruber don't like it
Blockin the DiggBar
Block the DiggBar

The Kevin called up his coders
He said you better earn your pay
Drop their pages between the framesets
Down the DiggBar way

As soon as the Kevin was
Biking out of there
The frame coders surfed to
The options page of theirs

As soon as the Kevin was
Outta their hair
The DiggBar failed

John Gruber don't like it
Blockin the DiggBar
Block the DiggBar
John Gruber don't like it
Blockin the DiggBar
Block the DiggBar

He thinks it's not Kosher
The Internet can't take it
You know we really hatessss it.
