Fleetwood Mac's classic single "Dreams" entered the Billboard charts again this week based off a meme's popularity.

Fleetwood Mac's classic work has gotten a chart push from a piece of Internet virality centered around a clip of the Alcorn State University dance line, the Golden Girls.

The band's seminal album, Rumours, has risen to the thirteenth spot on the Top Rock Albums chart, up from the 21st position, while the single "Dreams" is now sitting at No. 14 on the Top Rock Songs chart, as Billboard reports. (Rumours still holds the record for dominating the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 for 31 weeks, the longest period for an album made by a group.)

This isn't the first time Fleetwood Mac has been associated with a collegiate line dance. The video for the title track of 1979's Tusk was performed with the help of the USC Trojan Marching Band, and Lindsey Buckingham reunited with the school in 2015 for an encore performance.

Better late than never, right?
