The song's catalog number contains the word 'crab' (MCRAB).
This song was released on the Instinct channel as a music video, a first for Noisestorm.
This is the second Monstercat single to reach the Billboard Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart, peaking at #36.
Noisestorm created the music video using Unreal Engine 4.
On the day of its release, April 1st, the Monstercat subreddit, Discord channel, release documents, and Wikia were renamed to Monstercrab.
Unexpectedly, Crab Rave, as an April Fools' song, was placed on the Instinct Vol. 1 album, replacing Stay.
The song has spawned a huge meme around social media (such as YouTube, Instagram, Twitter, and Reddit), which has a snippet of the music video with a bass boosted version of the song with multiple absurd quotes. Prominent quotes include:
This song has also earned Noisestorm $50,000 USD as a grant from Unreal Engine 4, for having the most creative and original use of their software.
In one and a half years, it reached over 82 million views with over 2 million likes.
This is Monstercat's first YouTube upload to hit 2 million likes.
A remix by Muzzy and Going Quantum has been played on Call of the Wild and at several venues including Monstercat Compound. However, the remix has not had an official release on the label and Going Quantum "lost his USB in Europe which contained the Crab Rave remix" according to Mike Darlington.
