'Pants on the Ground' might be the best song ever on 'American Idol'

Last night‘s Atlanta auditions for American Idol featured at least one break-out star: General Larry Platt and his debut song “Pants on the Ground.”

Laugh it up, judges — this song is totally on its way to remix glory right now. Behold:

Here it is Auto-Tuned:

And one more for good measure:

(The visuals leave a little something to be desired, but I like that music the best.)

Okay, PopWatchers, pull your pants up. You kind of love this song, too, right?

    I admit that I laughed at “Pants on the Ground”, but, as far as “Idol” songs popularized by hopeless rejects during the audition rounds, I’m still ALL about “We’re Brothers Forever.” (I even forced my little bro to make that his ringtone for me.)

    • Ceballos

      I should clarify, I mean “ORIGINAL songs popularized by hopeless rejects during the audition rounds.”

      William Hung and “She Bangs” is clearly king otherwise.

    • Allie

      haha i agree ceballos!! we’re brothers forever will always be number one!! lol.

  • Ally

    best part of the auditions last night. hands (not pants) down.

  • SDTim

    I dig the last remix! Awesomeness.

  • Bobby’s Robot

    He was fun, but I hope he doesn’t turn into another William Hung.

    • Brian

      William Hung was big because he was pathetic and oblivious to his own massive lack of talent or appeal. General Larry Platt is none of these. Also, Platt’s song is his own.

  • chichi

    This is the best audition in the history of Idol and the most memorable. I have never laughed so hard in my life.

  • Goober

    And we have a winner! The rest of the season is rather useless after this gem! Go General!

  • graeme

    that last remix could totally be a big hit.

    • tia

      Agree completely! Needs some radio play…

    • Bette

      This could totally be a big hit like ‘Who Let the Dogs Out!” Me like!

  • Mimi

    LOVED the song! especially cause it actually made sense! he’s so right about those people with their (sing it with me) PANTS ON THE GROUND!!!

  • Vivi

    Just checked out “We’re Brothers Forever”. It was okay. But “Pants on the Ground” is all that and a bag of chips! What? And it’s the truth! These guys looking like straight FOOLS with their pants on the ground. Pull that sh*t up! Get a belt!

    • Ceballos

      You’re right about “Pants on the Ground” getting an important message out there. Hopefully the song can help usher in a new trend in which people wear belts and/or wear pants that fit properly.

      • JayNYC

        Was wondering about that myself. We can only hope.

      • Melinda65

        After that issue has been properly addressed, maybe General Platt can write a song about women who wear midriff-baring tops despite having a midriff that is more of a midroll. I don’t make them see mine, and I don’t want to see theirs.

    • Ceballos

      Melinda, Gen. Platt would already be too late if he did that – we needed that song on Tuesday night BEFORE my cornea was seared by that one auditioner who was obsessed with the “Idol” game.

      • Shana

        ewww that girl and her fat rolls were disgusting! the first auditioner they showed right? yikes!

  • Stephanie T.

    OMG! This is the best yet funniest remix that I have heard so far. It sounds like something that DMX would have done as a spoof. I say that radio stations should release this.

  • Teresa

    Thank you Ceballos. I couldn’t remember the name of that song We’re Brother’s Forever. My sis and I mentioned that one last night – still memorable but Pants on the Ground – classic and hysterical. Simon’s reaction was priceless and he’s was right when he said it will probably be a hit song.

  • Pam

    My son and I both agree that “Pants on the Ground” made last night’s Idol totally worth watching! I texted my sis today: “…lookin’ like a fool with your pants on the ground!” and was disappointed to discover that she didn’t watch it last night.
    The last remix is my fave! I want it for my iPod!

  • Noeladd

    This song was stuck in my head all night! Not sure if it’s a good thing but it sure is catchy.

    • kenneth jenkins

      i love the Pants off the ground Remix. I hope to hear this remix played during the show with dancers

  • NES

    The best talent on last night’s AI audition was General Larry Platt with his (I hope) hit single “Pants on the Ground”!

  • JPDaBoss

    Oh yeah! That last one is going all over twitter and fb and will be on my iPod! hahaha
