BTS’s “Pied Piper” Lyrics Used As Reference For U.S. TV Show Review
It’s no surprise that BTS has become a worldwide sensation. They are known for not only their stunning visuals, talented dance, and vocals, but also for their messages in their songs. They have touched the hearts of many fans with inspiring lyrics to love ourselves.
Recently, a review of the American TV show Silicon Valley posted online through AV Club. They open their review with lyrics from BTS’s “Pied Piper” to use as a reference for their article.
Fans are ecstatic to see BTS’s music being used in all aspects of entertainment and culture.
AV Club's review of Silicon Valley's finale starts off with the lyrics to @BTS_twt's Pied Piper. The other reference to PP (unrelated to the show) is a passage by Robert Browning the playwright.
Now, this is what we call having a firm place in culture. https://t.co/iGgyRpBkes pic.twitter.com/y8xRoXaATz

Here are the lyrics mentioned in the review:
Follow the sound of the pipe, follow this song
It’s a bit dangerous but I’m so sweet
I’m here to save you, I’m here to ruin you
You called me, see? I’m so sweet
Follow the sound of the pipe
I’m takin’ over you
I’m takin’ over you
– BTS, “Pied Piper”
“Pied Piper” is essentially a song taking down the fan culture that helped them become successful. This song is a reminder to ARMY that following them is not all there is to life. Billboard states, “In an industry dependent on the taste and affections of its audience, BTS’s frank approach to the dangers and realities of the intense dedication from fans and the band’s role as a distraction in those people’s lives, is as contradictory as the group has ever been towards its place in pop music.”
This is just one of the tongue-in-cheek songs that BTS has released. The group’s straightforward approach to these types of topics is what makes them loved by so many.
