The first American Idol reject to gain widespread fame. Hung, an engineering major at Berkeley, turned in a horrendous rendition of Ricky Martin's She Bangs at his audition and was roundly rejected by the judges. Despite this setback to his singing career, he was signed to a record deal and released one album, Inspiration, a collection of covers sung by Hung and peppered with occasional words of wisdom. To this day, many are still unsure whether Hung was a savvy genius with an almost supernatural ability to mock his own self-image or just a naive fool who truly believed he was talented.

Get the William Hung mug.
The most sublime singer in the history of music. Every time I hear his music, especially covers of passe hits like She Bangs, my soul is transported to another dimension. He sings like an angel on crack and his voice is just mind-blowing.
If it wasn't for William Hung's songs, I'd commit suicide.
