“We Didn't Start This Website!” is a fad conglomeration sung to the tune of Billy Joel's "We Didn't Start The Fire". While it has earned many accolades, it is also despised among many "Forgot Poland Army" members. This may be because they misunderstand the history and intent of this site. So here goes...

Back in July of 2006, moheevi drunkenly stumbled into YTMND Ventrilo and used his mod power to drag all of the site regulars into his room. This included MasterSitsu, boomaga, NuclearBastard, NeoMatrixClt, and many others. His idea: to create the greatest YTMND compilation ever! Originally, this was the idea: http://moheevisidea.ytmnd.com/

Later on, they decided to put their creative powers together (boomaga's voice, Sitsu's image editing, Neo's lyrical abilities, moheevi's randomness, and anyone else who wanted to contribute. And so began, the YTMND: Omega Project.

They were thinking of songs they could use to sing about the site. One idea was "Clint Eastwood" by Gorillaz, and another was Snoop Dogg's "Jin and Juice". They settled on Billy Joel's "We didn't start the fire", because he was naming off fads/events of HIS era in the song. To get the ball rolling, NuclearBastard found an instrumental version of the song, so now it was Neo's turn.

Neo first went to the ytmnd wiki (here) and gathered as many fads as he could. Then, he spent the next few weeks comparing the original song and trying to match them up to the fads. Also was the issue of rhyming. Surprisingly, not many of the fads rhymed, so he had to get creative.

Finally, all the verses up until "People raiding ebaum" were done. It was time to get a singer. Many people were sought out for the job such as Bupo and billysk8r. Eventually, they bailed out, and so did the rest of the "originators". Neo then decided to take the project on himself. He finished a few more lines of lyrics and sang it (tone-deaf). He then presented it to Ventrilo shortly after the e0n8 fisaco. It was seen as "creative, yet tone deaf".

Neo decided to wait until his "singers" were available to work on the project, but the months passed by, and more and more fads were created, requiring updates, and making it harder to make rhymes. It became sort of an "in-joke" on the YTMND Ventrilo as "We didn't finish this website". So, once his "New Years Eve Premiere" deadline passed, Neo gave up. The "Omega Project" was dead.

Skip forward to January 18th, 2007: Feedrosie, a YTMND enthusiast had just finished making a site with Neo called "Mac vs. PC" It recieved such high reviews that the duo decided to work on another project. After they scrapped the idea for a sequel, Neo remembered the Omega Project, but lamented that he didn't have anyone to sing it. Feedrosie then informed him that HE could sing it, and sent Neo a demo recording. The Omega Project was back on.

Originally, it was going to be a duo with both Neo and Feedrosie singing, but Neo's voice was considered "detrimental" to the success of the site. Once the lyrics were finalized, the grueling task of looking up over 100 fad images and cropping them into a .gif was put in Feedrosie's hands. He spent 6 straight hours the day before it premiered to get it perfect. There were sync/size issues that spanned right up until an hour before the site went live. For instance, the full 4:30 song was impossible to fit on the site, so huge amounts of possible lyrics were left out, as well as intended amimations/effects.

Neo's personal opinion of the site is this: - "I wanted to do sort of a YTMND Anthem, but also a way to say 'This is how far we've come; now let's work on moving forward with something new.'"

The site currently holds the number one position as top rated YTMND of all time, as it surpassed New Talent on 60 Minutes.
