This is one of those songs that will be burned into our memories forever whether we like it or not. I remember when the hype was just starting. It was a catchy cross-genre song that caught attention for many different reasons. Nowadays this song is EVERYWHERE. You can't go 20 minutes without hearing it on the radio, or in a store, or on social media. People have all of the lyrics memorized yet they cant even remember what their social security number is probably.
Of course it was only a matter of time before the kids got their hands on it too. I bet that 3/4 of these students wouldn't pay attention when a teacher tells them to "quiet down" but the minute Lil Nas X wanders up he has every single kid's undivided attention. That is basically a miracle IMO.
It is truly remarkable what how one song can take over the world like this one has.
