The gansta version of the macarena. the words still cant be understood, and it has launched as many parodies that are as retarded as the song itself.
person #1: What are you listening to? And why are you dancing??
person #2: It's Crank Dat and I'm dancing yo.
preson #1: Righhhtt. You look like you're doing the Macarena on speed.
A horrible song with no lyrical talent whatsoever
Person: Love that Crank Dat song
Person 2: Can you do the dance?!?!
Person: There's a dance?!?
Person 2: Yeah it goes like this *proceeds to move about like they are a retarded monkey on speed*
Alternative meaning, popularized by the the Soulja Boy song of the same title. Crank dat refers to the act of masturbation, as indicated by the lyrics "watch me "crank dat" soldier boy then superman that hoe"
Watch me crank dat soldier boy then superman dat hoe...OR...watch me masturbate my erect penis then ejaculate on this promiscuous woman's back before sticking a sheet to the soiled spot on her back causing an eventual cape-like effect.
song that is contributing to the retardation of america
After listening to crank dat, John transformed from a genius to being in a persistant vegetative state.
A stupid-ass hip pop fad started by a song (crank dat soulja boy) by the talentless southern rapper Soulja Boy.
There's at least a million of songs that have the words "crank dat" in it, and they're all repetitive, stupid, and have no lyrical meaning whatsoever. It's just another bunch of retarded club songs that people are gonna forget about in a few months.
Here are a few of these shit-tastic songs:
Crank Dat Soulja Boy
Crank Dat Spiderman
Crank Dat Peter Pan
Crank Dat Yank
Crank Dat Batman
Crank Dat Superman
Crank Dat Lion King
Crank Dat Jump Rope
Crank Dat Weezy Wee
You can already tell that they're horrible just by reading their titles.
The name of a song by Soulja Boy, which serves to establish an equally idiotic dance. On par with who let the dogs out and the macarena, this song demonstrates no talent or creativity, and proves how stupid most followers of the hip-hop mainstream truly are.
"I'm have no mind! I'm going to crank dat!"
A song that's become an epidemic among teenagers in an alarmingly short period of time.
A song labeled as "rap/hip-hop" that nearly every teenager in America knows about. The song - for lack of a better word - rapped by the seventeen-year-old kid known as Soulja Boy has made several remixes and versions, from Spiderman to Robocop. All follow the same basic dance pattern, with the exception of a few minor changes during the chorus. It's a poor excuse for talent in the music world as it degrades women, and shows just how far "talent" has plunged in the 21st century - the lyrics alone show the literacy levels of the person who raps it. Just look up the lyrics to it on here - it's sad to see that few realize the exact meaning of the song before they look up the meaning. The song has had some controversy as to its lyrics and overall meaning, being banned at many schools/education facilities due to its content.
The only credit I can give to the song is that it spread so quickly and that the dance is probably the best known dance for late 2007, mainly becoming known from the popular instructional video for it on YouTube. Honestly, as soon as you here the signature "YOOOUUU!" at the beginning of the song you know it's Crank That (or Dat, depending on your literacy) Soulja Boy and just about everyone starts doing the dance to it.
You want an example? Turn the volume up on your iPod to the max and start playing Crank Dat/That in a room full of kids. Watch how many start dancing/attempting to rap to it.
