#SXSW Doc Answers the Question of Our Times; "Who Let The Dogs Out?"

New Yorker Ben Sisto (Whose name sounds vaguely familiar so if he's pulled some shit, don't @ me bc I didn't know) has been obsessed with finding out who truly owns the song, made popular by the Baha Men.

  • The Hook dates back to 1959

  • 9 Different peple claim they wrote the song.

  • There are several versions dating from the mid-90s to the one we know that came out in 2000.

  • The titular chant has been dated back to a 1989 Austin High School football team.

  • "Who let the dogs out" has been ID'd as a Trinidadian term.


I really hope someone picks this up and it gets distributed.
