From "DNA" to "Go Go," BTS' new album Love Yourself 'Her' is filled with a number of great songs, but the one standout track is "Pied Piper" due to its subversive nature.

BTS are known for their socially conscious and introspective lyrics, so it was quite a surprise to hear "Pied Piper's" lyrics focus on lightheartedly chastising ARMYs for their obsessive nature over listening to the group's music rather than studying.

Featuring lyrics such as "Now stop watching and study/ Your parents and bosses hate me", this prompted ARMYs everywhere to show BTS that they do, in fact, study. Quite a lot!

A big fan project with the hashtag #GRADESFORBANTAN was started by ARMYs who had listened to "Pied Piper," and it involves fans sharing their grades as proof that they are managing to listen to BTS AND achieve top marks in school.
