Magic!'s "Rude" kicked Iggy Azalea's "Fancy" from the throne atop the Billboard Hot 100, but the song has inspired more backlash than loving remakes.

"Rude" tells the dumb tale of a dude who asks for a dad's blessing to marry his daughter. The father says no and the narrator says, "I'm gonna marry her anyway." Since we live in a time and country where women don't need permission to do things, non-fans have taken to YouTube to promote anti-"Rude" covers. Earlier this week, Benji Cowart, a father of three, wrote a response from the father's point of view, which has been viewed over six million times.

Meanwhile, YouTuber Nicky Costabile turned the sexist song into a feminist anthem. Lyrics credited to Marisa DiFrisco say what we're all thinking: "I belong to no one for the rest of my life, say no, say no, is this a joke, say I decide my husband til the day I die but at this rate I'd rather have no one."
