In what some may consider the most disappointing fast-food news of 2016, Subway has decided to raise the price of its iconic $5 footlong sub to $6.

The New York Daily News reports that as of Thursday (today), Subway will begin selling the footlong subs for six bones. The below tweet sparked many questions, the most common being what a “classic sub” is.
@thegreatketchup Classic refers to a regular priced SUBWAY sandwich without upgrades.

According to the Subway Twitter, a “classic sub” is any regular Subway sandwich before you add all the good stuff like guac.
Fans took to Twitter to express their feelings towards the promotion and reacted exactly how you might expect:
@SUBWAY everyone remember the five dollar footlong song. Yall ain’t slick

subway got rid of the $5 footlong and in the process my only incentive of going there solely for the advantageous purchase of a cheap sub.

The worst part about this decision has been the fact that the catchy five-dollar footlong jingle will forever be a thing in the past. Let’s be honest: “six dollar foot long” just doesn’t have the same ring to it.
