Canadian supergroup raps tribute song to Bill Murray

There are fans of Bill Murray, and then there are fans. And it's hard to imagine a more dedicated set of fans of the "Ghostbusters" and "Groundhog Day" star than Sweatshop Union, a supergroup of Canadian rap acts who have a new single titled simply, "Bill Murray."

The beats are solid but the lyrics (and the repetition of Murray's face in the video) are what sell the song:

You'll never wake up and be

Half the man me and Bill is

Was then and still is

Hands down the billest

There really ain't another one

Grand like your mother's mum

Chill, you ain't like Murray, Bill

More like O'Reilly

So try me.

(Note: Some language in the video may offend some readers.)

 

(There's also an amusing passing reference to "Chevy Chasin' a dream" -- remember, Murray and "Community's" Chevy Chase were once on "Saturday Night Live" and "Caddyshack" together -- and nods to characters from several Murray films, including "The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou" and "The Royal Tenenbaums."

Sweatshop Collective includes several rap names which may be more familiar above the border than below, but is comprised of members of Dirty Circus, Pigeon Hole, Krypios and Innocent Bystander. The tune is part of a new release called "The Bill Murray EP," which was released via Urbnet.

And for completeists out there: This isn't even the first Murray-titled/inspired tune; Gorillaz (another supergroup of sorts) released "Bill Murray" a few years ago, though he's not name-checked in the lyrics.

Who knew that the 61-year old actor's latest starring role would be as a muse?
