Here's why Hit The Diff needs to be recognised as a national treasure

It’s time.

IF YOU DON’T know what Hit The Diff is at this stage, you’ve been missing out.

The country belter by Monaghan musician Marty Mone has been out well over a year at this stage – and it’s about time it’s recognised as a modern day Irish treasure.

It’s racked up over 3 million views on YouTube

And that’s just one of the reasons why we need to start taking Hit The Diff seriously as a long-term dancefloor filler:

It has the most quotable lyrics

And it has to be the most passionately loved song on the dancefloors of Ireland

Not since Maniac 2000 have we seen such prolonged love for a homegrown banger.

It has the power to cheer people up

Politicians even climbed aboard the Hit The Diff bandwagon last month


It’s made an appearance on The Late Late show too

Establishment status if ever there was one.

It’s even got its own set of covers knocking around YouTube

Imitation is the greatest form of flattery and all that.

Hit The Diff is the tractor song Ireland has been crying out for

One simple Hit The Diff lyrics test is enough to tell you all you need to know about someone’s compatibility

It’s the modern day road frontage.

Get used to it, Hit The Diff is a national institution at this stage

And deservedly so
