The Music of Rebecca Black: Coming to Glee!

at . Comments

Britney Spears. Madonna. Lady Gaga. Rebecca Black.

You might say that being covered by Glee is a sign that a musical act has left an indelible mark on popular culture. Some don't want that distinction, but so be it.

In this case, however, you might wonder if Glee is going too far in pursuit of the newest, hottest trend. Although this particular trend has great comedic potential.

Rebecca Black’s “Friday,” the viral, this-must-be-a-joke-wait-it's-serious sensation that has been viewed 100 million times on YouTube, is getting the Glee treatment.

So many PSAs to be written around Rebecca Black a cappella ...

The unlikely "hit" song, which some critics consider among the worst in the history of human civilization, will appear an upcoming Glee episode that centers around the prom.

Going the honors on "Friday" will either be Kevin McHale, Chord Overstreet and Mark Salling, or Salling and returning guest star Jonathan Groff (as Jesse St. James).

What do you think? A fun (fun, fun!) move by a fun show, or another sign that Glee has abandoned whatever writing standards it once had in favor of cheap gags?
