"Who is Jason Statham and why did Tyler name his cheetah after him???"

After months of teasing and months of waiting, Twenty One Pilots finally dropped their fifth studio album, Trench, and fans are living for it. The band had already dropped four singles prior to the release of the 14-track album ('Jumpsuit', 'Nico And The Niners', 'Levitate' and 'My Blood') along with three music videos.

Fans are taking deep dives into some of the emotional lyrics and themes across the record; Tyler Joseph has already opened up about some of the more personal inspirations on a few of the songs (his own journey with mental health, in particular.) Fans are also in their feelings about 'Smithereens', a track written about his wife, Jenna.

But while every single track on the album goes off, it's 'Pet Cheetah' that's emerging as one of the most talked about bops, thanks to it's hilarious Jason Statham name drop and Tyler's incredibly heartfelt shoutout to the Clique.

Pet Cheetah is clearly one of the best songs on the album. 1) It slaps, 2) the chorus has the most iconic lyrics of all time, 3) did we mention that it slaps?

.

Despite his legendary cinematic status, turns out that not a lot of TØP stans know who Jason Statham actually is...

He's an English actor by the way, best known for his roles in the Fast and Furious franchise, Snatch and the criminally underrated 2018 movie, The Meg amongst others. There's no other intel as to why Tyler name named his cheetah Jason Statham, but he did happen to mention it in an interview once...

.

But the one lyric that's really got the stans in their feelings? It's the heartfelt shout out to the clique in the third verse.

Tyler sings "This clique means so much to this dude. It could make him afraid of his music, And be scared to death he could lose it,” and it's a lyric that really means a lot to the dedicated clique members.

[Verse 1]

I am on an island, no one to confide

Eight days straight, eight hours each and not one line

I can feel pressure start to possess my mind

So, I'll take this beat I should delete to exercise

[Chorus]

No, I move slow

I want to stop time

I'll sit here 'til I find the problem

No, I move slow

I want to stop time

I'll sit here 'til I find the problem

[Verse 2]

I've got a pet cheetah down in my basement

I've raised him, and bathed him

And named him Jason Statham

I've trained him to make me these beats

Now my pet cheetah's quicker in the studio than on his feet

[Verse 3]

I'ma get mine and get going

I'm showing my faces in just enough places

I'm done with tip-toeing, I'll stay in my room

My house is the one where the vultures are perched on the roof

Get behind me, I bet this nepotistic mindset

Will help us get ours as we're growing

This clique means so much to this dude

It could make him afraid of his music

And be scared to death he could lose it

[Chorus]

No, I move slow

I want to stop time

I'll sit here 'til I find the problem

No, I move slow

I want to stop time

I'll sit here 'til I find the problem

[Interlude]

I'll sit here 'til I

I'll sit here 'til I find the problem

I'll sit here 'til I

I'll sit here 'til I find the problem

[Chorus]

No, I move slow

I want to stop time

I'll sit here 'til I find the problem

No, I move slow

I want to stop time

I'll sit here 'til I find the problem

[Bridge]

I can feel pressure start to possess my mind

So I'll take this beat I should delete to exercise

[Outro]
