Sticking Out Your Gyat for the Rizzler (Explained)
If you are or know a member of Gen Alpha, you've likely encountered the "Sticking out your gyat for the rizzler" song (also known as the "Fanum tax" song or the "Skibidi" song). Set to the tune of SUICIDAL-IDOL's "ecstacy," this viral earworm began making the rounds on TikTok in early October 2023.
The song (such as it is) consists of the following lyrics:
Sticking out your gyat for the rizzler
You're so Skibidi
You're so Fanum tax
I just wanna be your sigma
Freaking come here
Give me your Ohio
(You can listen to the original version of the song here.)
To anyone who is not terminally online, these lyrics probably appear to be nonsense. And while that's somewhat true, the song does have a "meaning," if you understand the slang it includes.
