Virgins killed this song more than white people, transforming it from a satirical song about dudes not knowing when they're getting played to the de facto international nice guy theme song. If the friend zone were a country, this would be the national anthem. You can thank Mario for rehashing the track years later into an earnest song about unrequited love, but you can thank nerds who took this shit way too seriously in the first place for ruining it.
