Arguably one of 2009’s greatest indie-relevant memesters, Wallpaper. are only a daily-meme away from becoming the musical equivalent of Carles.

While it seems that Wallpaper’s attention has (thus far) been limited to a relativity niche-market (judging mainly by their limited YouTube views), there’s little denying that their meme-choice has potential for mainstream crossover appeal.

Here’s the 3 vital Wallpaper. memes of the last few months.

First was the excellent (and troublesomely listenable) remix of a relatively unknown stoner-dancesmash, which brought the song from painful to playful; resulting in its being Pitchforked.

MP3: Das Racist & Wallpaper “Combination Pizza Hut And Taco Bell” (Wallpaper. remix) (192kbps)

Second was the impressively timely remix of Jay-Z’s “Death Of Autotune” — turning it into an excessively autotune’d mash-up with winning lines like “I got 99 problems but my pitch ain’t one.”  Not exactly a re-listenable track, but neither is “D.O.A.”.

MP3: Jay-Z “D.O.A./99 Problems” (Wallpaper. remix) (192kbps)

And most recently, is the viral-hopeful “Booty Tweet”.  Purposely cheesy — and a little mediocre perhaps — but I think they are the first to the punch.

Now, I wonder if this series of memes is going to translate into something better?
