All praise and glory be to Harambe, the beautiful, precious gorilla who died, unlike the meme that spawned in his wake which simply refuses to.

The blessed but very dead and in hell gorilla left this mortal coil a hero on May 28th of this year, and the world continues to snidely mourn his untimely murder.

Whilst the ashes of his fleshy vessel drift gently on the breeze the world over, spreading the gift of selflessness to all who inhale him, over on Spotify there is a war raging.

The music streaming service’s viral charts have been taken over – conquered, if you will – by a duo of competing tunes that honour the life and times of the super dead animal.

In the red corner, we have ‘Dicks Out For Harambe‘ by LA-based rapper Rockie Gold. And in the blue corner we have the much more reserved ‘Harambe‘ by fellow-LA rapper Dumbfoundead.

The pair of tunes are straight-up burning the viral charts in a number of different countries.

On the global scale, it’s Dumbfoundead taking the tape over Rockie Gold, scorching into first place on the Global Viral 50.

Do the songs do justice to the mighty beast himself? Do they adequately appease his clearly angry and ever-present spirit? Are these the bangers the internet finally needs to put the meme to rest alongside Harambe’s eternally burning soul?

Fang ’em into your ear holes and judge for yourself.

TL;DR, Harambe is still dead and in hell, the same place where we’re clearly all headed.
