Welcome to the TAN, the infamous Thread About Nothing, American Pie edition. Don Mclean's marathon song, an enigmatic American classic recorded and released in 1971, is the subject of this awesome lip dub staged by the town of Grand Rapids, Michigan. The city of Grand Rapids staged this in response to a Newsweek article that stated the city was dying. The late Roger Ebert called this the greatest music video ever made.

Here are the TAN rules. Memorize them. There will be a quiz at the end of this thread.

1) No politics, no personal attacks, no excessive swearing, no porn, no graphic violence/ gore. Period.

2) The mods have ultimate, mind boggling authority. Sp0rtsfan86 and I are the TAN mods. If we or any other moderators or editors say drop it, let it go. Please don't argue with us. We have final say, period.

3) If a topic is borderline we will warn you. Don't argue. Accept it and move on.

4) If there is a problem email sp0rtsfan86 at or Smackdad at We'll try to work something out so that we don't have issues. We promise you will remain anonymous.

And now, the city of Grand Rapids, Michigan with Don Mclean's American Pie.
