Who came up with YOLO?

I have heard that some rapper came up with it but not what year... The strokes is my favorite band and they have a song called You Only Live Once which I think counts. That was 2005 so if some rapper came up with that before 2005 I'd shut up

    The Strokes did it first (and better) in 2006.

    But Drake popularized it amongst idiots by shortening it to "YOLO"

    Drake. In his song, 'the motto' he says 'You only live once: that's the motto, ***** YOLO' and hence the whole YOLO disaster.

    BONO was watching BOLO playing with his YOYO

    Its one of the dumbest phrases in existence...really sad...

    to think you only live once is an excuse to whittle it all away...

    when it SHOULD mean, get frickin serious....!!!!
