A meme that has become irrelevant or unfunny, often due to age or overly cringeworthy use.

A Dead Meme does not have to be old; many people still continue to make Shrek jokes despite the many years since original thread.

Often times a Dead Meme can be revived, if only self-referential, or satirical. If not, it can be considered quite annoying for a Dead Meme to be used.

Person 2: No, stop.

Dead Memes, unlike Dank Memes or even Normie Memes, are memes known to have been not used for many years by mainstream Dank Meme Culture. Often killed by Normies, these memes are at the bottom of the barrel. Think of it this way - Dank Meme ---> Mainstream Meme ---> Normie Meme ---> Dead Meme. Examples include trollface, Stuff Things Stuff, Clean All The Things, and Rage Comics.
Memer - Bro, check out this Dank Meme.
Normie - Nah dude, that meme sucks ass. Check out this meme.
Memer - What the fuck is that dead meme? You normie piece of shit.
