Lost in the mists of time is the astonishing fact that the callers are also gonna call and (even more surprisingly) the ballers are gonna ball.


2. In 2009, four years before Jesse Graham wrote his song, this literal panda already knew the truth about haters.


If pandas weren't so notoriously chill, Jesse Graham would be hearing from some hard-nosed panda litigators (known as Bearisters) right about now.


3. According to Google Trends, search interest for the term "Haters gonna hate" really got going around 2010 and actually STARTED DECLINING around the time Graham released his song.

4. The fan page for the phrase "Potatoes Gonna Potate" has more fans than the video for Graham's song had views before his lawsuit.

The (excellent) phrase "Potatoes Gonna Potate" has been in the popular consciousness since at least 2011.
