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.

A horrible song by the talentless Soulja Boy, comes with a dance. It plays everywhere especially in the suburbs where white kids and their parents sing along to it and do the dance...until they find out what the song's actually about.
Crank Dat is the reason I have no faith in humanity.

A horrible song by a horrible "artist" (Soulja Boy) that talks about how some guy (Soulja Boy) whacks off onto a girls back when she's sleeping, and sticks a bed sheet to her back, and it sticks, hence SUPERMANN!
Soulja Boy: Crank dat soulja boy, superman dat ho.

The most annoying song ever to be released. It is rapped by Soulja Boy, a 17yr old kid with no talent. One of the songs that makes rap music hard to defend.
Person 1: "crank dat and superman dat hoe"

Person 2: Lets kick his ass for singing that song
