"Revenge" is a Minecraft parody of the song DJ's got us Falling in Love by Usher featuring Pitbull. It was written, produced, partly-sung, and uploaded by CaptainSparklez, with the main vocals sung by TryHardNinja.

It is the most viewed Minecraft video on all of YouTube, having over 238 million views and 3.3 million likes as of July 2020.

Plot Edit

Steve goes mining for diamonds, when a creeper sneaks up on him. He escapes unharmed, but takes a rest too early and another creeper explodes behind him that appears out of nowhere, which almost kills him. Steve escapes again and decides to get revenge on the creepers, so he begins training in his house to craft his diamond sword. After training, he leaves and gets his revenge by killing a bunch of creepers.

In the music video this plot is shown as an animation, interspersed with CaptainSparklez's Minecraft character performing the song.

History Edit

The parody was released on August 11, 2011, and quickly became very popular. It passed 100 million views in May 2013.[1] On August 20, 2011, CaptinSparklez made the behind the scenes of revenge.

In April or May 2015, the "Revenge" music video was made private for copyright reasons. Later, on December 25, 2015, the video was made public again, however the audio was replaced with a new version of "Revenge".[2]

The new version (which is usually called "Revenge 2.0" or "Revenge 2016" to distinguish it from the parody) has mostly the same lyrics as the parody, but is otherwise a completely original song, not using anything from "DJ's Got Us Fallin In Love Again". The song was created and again sang by TryHardNinja, with CaptainSparklez again rapping.[3]

The new version of the song was met with mixed to negative reception mainly because it replaced the parody.

The parody was restored in May or June 2018.

Starting in February 2019, the parody became a meme, mainly focusing on its opening lyrics, "Creeper, aw man", as well as a fad where people tried to sing it via chat in Discord. The meme has caused the song to come back into popularity.

On 29 July 2019, due to popular demand, CaptainSparklez posted a lyric video for the parody song.

Lyrics Edit

(TryHardNinja is in normal text, CaptainSparklez is in italics.)

Creeper,

aw man..

So we back in the mine,

got our pickaxe swinging from

side to side, 

side-side to side.

This tasks a grueling one,

hope to find some diamonds to-

night, night, night, 

diamonds tonight. 

Heads up, 

You hear a sound, 

turn around and look up. 

Total shock fills your body. 

Oh no it's you again, 

I could never forget those 

eyes, eyes, eyes, 

eyes, eyes-eyes-

cause baby tonight, 

the creepers tryna steal all our stuff again. 

Cause baby tonight, 

grab your pick shovel and bolt again 

(bolt again-gain) 

and run, run until it's 

done, done until the 

sun comes up in the morn’. 

Cause baby tonight, 

the creepers tryna steal all our stuff again. 

Just when you think you're safe, 

overhear some hissing from 

right behind, 

right-right behind. 

That's a nice life you have, 

shame it's gotta end at this 

time, time, time, 

time, time-time, time. 

Blows up, 

then your health bar drops and you could use a 

one up. 

Get inside, don't be tardy. 

So now you're stuck in there, 

half a heart is left but don't 

die, die, die, 

die, die-die, 

cause baby tonight, 

the creepers tryna steal all our stuff again, 

cause baby tonight, 

grab your pick, 

shovel, 

and bolt again, 

bolt again-gain,

and run, run until it’s 

done, done until the 

sun comes up in the morn, 

cause baby tonight, 

the creepers tryna steal all our stuff again

(Creepers, your mine, haha) 

Dig up diamonds, craft those diamonds, 

make some armor, get it baby-

go and forge that like you so MLG pro, 

the sword’s made of diamonds so come at me bro. 

(Huh) 

Training in your room under the torchlight, 

hone that form to get you ready for the big fight, 

(Ooh) 

every single day and the whole night, 

creepers out prowling, (Hoo)

alright. 

Look at me, look at you, 

take my revenge that’s what I’m gonna do, 

I’m a-warrior baby, 

what else is new, 

and my blades gonna tear through you, 

bring it

(Cause baby tonight) 

The creepers tryna steal all our stuff again, 

(Get all your stuff, yeah, let’s take back the world)

(Yeah,) 

baby tonight 

(Hahaha)

Grab your sword armor and go, 

(It’s on)

Take your revenge. 

(Woo)

(Ohoh) 

So fight, fight, like it’s the 

last, last night of your 

life, life show them your bite. 

(Woo)

Cause baby tonight, 

the creepers tryna steal all your stuff again, 

cause baby tonight, 

grab your pick shovel and bolt again, 

bolt again-gain, 

and run, run until it’s done, 

done until the sun comes up in the morn’. 

Cause baby tonight, 

(Come on) 

the creepers 

(swing your sword up high come on) 

tryna 

(yeah your sword up come on) 

steal all our stuff again. 

(Woo)
