Bob Dylan core is here, and TikTok is falling in love: ‘i think i have a crush on u’

Bob Dylan fans: This one’s for you. A new TikTok “core” has emerged, celebrating the effortless style of the “Like a Rolling Stone” singer-songwriter.

“Bob Dylan core” refers to a part of TikTok that sees users replicating how he walks — right down to his posture. As the second verse of Dylan’s “Don’t Think Twice, It’s Alright” kicks in, TikTokers walk into frame with hunched shoulders and hands in their jacket pockets.

New York City-based content creator Drew (@stringbeanboy13), who claims to have created the trend, describes ‘Bob Dylan Core’ as “wearing a jacket that’s not warm enough.”

“I love Bob Dylan and was very into listening to his music and playing his songs on guitar for a while,” Drew tells In The Know by Yahoo via Instagram. “I’ve got this one jacket I love but it’s hard to zip so I usually hold it shut. Every time I do that I think of The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan cover and that inspired me to make a video about the joke.”

“Bob Dylan core. Finally something I can get behind”

Naturally, TikTok users are swooning over this trend and the creators taking part in it.

“Man I love Bob Dylan core, I just hope it doesn’t go electric,” one user said, referencing Dylan’s Newport Folk Festival performance in 1965, during which he played an electric guitar, a pivotal moment in rock music history.

“Target audience reached,” someone replied.

“Commenting to stay with more bob dylan videos,” another said.

Owen (@otheflo) posted his version of the trend. The video has over 860,000 views.

“Trying to hide my Bob Dylan obsession here oh my god”

“Need me a Bob Dylan man fr,” someone said.

“i think i have a crush on u,” another replied.

“Trying to hide my Bob Dylan obsession here oh my god,” one user commented.

Christian Salibo (@christianvsthewurld), a San Diego-based content creator, shared his interpretation.

“Being cold is so Bob Dylan”

“didn’t realize bob dylan core was my type,” a user commented.

“i love this trend because it’s like girls talking about niche aesthetics except it’s guys,” another said.

“Being cold is so Bob Dylan,” someone joked.

As more additions to Bob Dylan Core emerge, TikTok users like Jayden (@apocalipst1ck) can look forward to more niche, swoon-worthy content.

“forget the bell bottom men with the s***** little waists on your fyp,” she writes. “these ‘bob dylan core’ mfs are gonna kill me.”
