Bob Dylan began trending on Twitter today and got as high as the number two trend in the United States, but the reason why it happened was rather surprising.

An account called Classic Rock In Pics shared a screenshot of Rolling Stone‘s list of the 100 Greatest Singers of All Time, and many took issue with the list because of Dylan’s number seven ranking. Keep in mind that this list was originally published in 2008 proving that sometimes when you resurface old stuff, people tend to react wildly.

What were the reactions like? Some reactions were hilarious…


Some reactions were critical…


Some saw Dylan trending and thought the worst…

However, the best reaction came from the comments of the original tweet, which noticed something very weird about that screengrab.

Aahhhhhh…the internet. It’s always an adventure!
