TheRealDJDong is a Blue Member of the Facepunch Studios forums. As the name implies, it is the official account of the Norwegian music producing duo, DJ Dong.[1]

They originally joined looking for constructive criticism, having created a music video for their song Dubstep Funeral,[2] introducing the forum to Dongstep, a genre of music combining several styles together, among which were dubstep and Norwegian folk music. Users were caught off-guard to an extent, initially suspecting Dong to be a gimmick due to his name, but investigating his YouTube and Soundcloud accounts revealed that he was legit. Regarding criticism, while some questioned the combination of genres, it was largely mixed, with some enjoying it and others not so much. Despite that, people quickly grew fond of the DJ, and the thread effectively became a mini-megathread, as the duo released his first album[3] and other users doing covers and remixes.

As a show of appreciation and inspiration, he dedicated a Half Life 2-themed song to Facepunch.[4][5] DJ Dong would, however, go silent for several months, after fame had caused issues in his personal life, but returned in August of 2015.[6] Their popularity would grow after Vinesauce's Joel played their cover of his song "If Skeletons Aquired Guns" on stream.[7] By August of 2016, they had managed to get 50k views.[8] However, they would vanish after the release of their last single, The Latter-Day Dongs,[9] and haven't been active since December of 2016.
