What do animated maniacs, creepy tuxedo-wearing men and autotuned Europeans share in common?
They've all unleashed irritating songs that have weaselled their way into pop culture, lodged themselves inside our brains, and somehow coaxed us onto dance floors to repeat their moves over and over again (often on YouTube).
