Many will surely point out that this hack could be done by manually making your own blank song and adding it to your phone, but the convenience of spending 99 cents on this to make the problem go away is a tradeoff that seems worth it.

One fed up genius, Samir Mezrahi, has figured the way out of this otherwise-ridiculous-but-too-irritating-to-get-over issue, with the help of a 9:58 minute long silent song. So why are people buying it? When this happens, songs with titles beginning with the letter A are more or less ruined for users as they are played every time the users plug their smartphones into their vehicles.

Inspired by the frustration felt by anyone who has plugged their phone into a auto radio only to hear the first alphabetically listed song in their music library blare over the speakers, "A a a a a Very Good Song" is created to jump to the top of the list. Its 10-minute duration gives iPhone owners enough time to line up the songs that they want to hear for their trip and also saves users from hearing the opening lines of the same song whenever they simply want to charge their iPhone in their auto.

The blank song costs $0.99 on iTunes and is also available on the Google Play store.

"A a a a a Very Good Song" is certainly not a real track, but Apple takes a cut from every sale.

Rezhami's masterpiece only came out Thursday and yet it has already climbed to #67 up the iTunes chart, according to Engadget.
