Not even Doom music makes stupid stuff worth upvoting.

NEDM, an acronym for Not Even Doom Music, is a YTMND meme. "Not even Doom music" refers to the notion that "not even Doom music" earns upvoting any animal abuse video. Later, the usage expanded to imply that applying something awesome (like the music from Doom, a classic video game) to something terrible (like animal cruelty) makes it worthy of upvoting.
- In July, 2005, 15 year old Glenn van den Meerssche filmed Kishor Nokayonokatsu, 26, stuffing a cat named "Mottles" into a cage, dousing it with fuel, and setting fire to it.
- Shortly after, the video was uploaded to Ogrish by user "Helter Skelter", and linked to on YTMND.
- YTMD user "Baron" made a now deleted flash animation, which included music from the classic video game, Doom.
- YTMND user "Titanium-Gecko" downvoted all posts from YTMND users who upvoted Baron's YTMND Flash animation of Mottles' death set to Doom music.

- YTMND user "moheevi" uploaded the video, using Coburn's We Interrupt This Programme, and included an image of Happycat.
- YTMND user "Stratos-the-Bratos" used this as the basis for yet another NEDM site.
- After seeing YTMND user "StarOnion"'s sites, Moheevi captioned a picture of a cat rescued from an air-vent with the famed "Chapstick" quote.
NEDM is considered a dead meme, although references to it are still seen sometimes. There is also currently a YTMND troll named NEDMinspector who downvotes everything that isn't NEDM.
