Can't Top the Tap Song Contest Rules

Can You Top the Tap Song Contest

In 1997, we branded our tap water because of its exceptional quality - it's so good we gave it its own name, Louisville pure tap® was born. To celebrate, we released a rap song called You Can’t Top the Tap. Take a listen.

Now as we celebrate 21 years of pure perfection, we want to see if you can Top the Tap with your very own rendition of “You Can’t Top the Tap.” Create a video of your version of this classic 90s song and share it with us before September 1, 2018. You can email a link to your YouTube or Vimeo video at

Get as creative as you want! There are zero restrictions. Use the same lyrics. Write new lyrics. Perform it as a country song. Add new lyrics. Use a green screen to take us on a journey. Just remember to keep it family friendly and under 2 minutes.

Our panel of pure tap experts will select our five favorite submissions. Then we’ll ask all of Louisville to vote for their favorite to win 2 tickets to PNC Broadway in Louisville’s production of HAMILTON!

See official rules for all the details.
