"Rockefeller Street" is a song by Getter Jaani which represented Estonia at the Eurovision Song Contest 2011 in Düsseldorf.[1]

The song was composed by Sven Lõhmus, writer of the 2005 and 2009 Eurovision entries for Estonia.

Alongside the act were two female backing vocalists on stage, singer and dancer Marilin Kongo who was also involved with "Rändajad", the 2009 Estonian entry, singer and actress Anna Põldvee, and three male street-dancers Ahto Paasik, Eghert-Sören Nõmm and Ahti Kiili.

The song gained 44 points and finished in 24th place of 25 in the final.

The song became an internet meme after a video of two Chinese men playing a Nightcore version of the song using the rhythm game osu! following them dancing to the song became popular on social media. Their dance moves also became popular, spreading to apps and sites such as TikTok and YouTube in 2018. The original song is in E minor while the meme nightcore version is in G minor, having been sped up by 1.25x with the pitch also increased.
