Abed Daybreak hum
Abed hums "Daybreak".
In the Study Group's third year at Greendale, Abed was encouraged to tell a Horror story during Britta's pre-Halloween party. It featured a song called "Daybreak that he hummed in the middle of his narration. Only Troy enjoyed hearing this as everyone else, particularly Pierce, was annoyed and wanted Abed to finish his tale. The infectious melody was later hummed by some of the other study group members over the years and also played on the campus radio by Neil. It was first heard in the Season Three episode "Horror Fiction in Seven Spooky Steps".
