I have been feeling nostalgic as of late, and that gave me the inspiration from for this post!
It was also a jarring experience finding out how old some of these songs are nowadays!
Without further ado, here are some songs I defiantly would’ve had on my MP3 player/iPod when I was a teenager!
American Idiot – Green Day
It’s eery how this song, released in 2004, still feels relevant to modern-day America.
Back then, I was just bopping to the guitars, crushing on Billie Joe Armstrong, and being a teenager.
I now realise how well written this song was, and understand why he wrote it. This song has stood the test of time.
“Don’t want to be an American idiot.
One nation controlled by the media.
Information age of hysteria.
It’s calling out to idiot America.”
Lying is the Most Fun a Girl Can Have Without Taking Her Clothes Off – Panic! At The Disco
I really don’t know what to say about this song. It’s catchy, and I still enjoy it to this day. I am questioning why my friends and I would loudly sing it, though.
The lyrics are a little raunchy!
So testosterone boys and harlequin girls,
Will you dance to this beat and hold a lover close?
What’s My Age Again? – Blink-182
This song feels bittersweet to listen to now! Not because it’s bad, but it’s a little painful how it went from something we’d sing without a care in the world, to feeling so relevant!
“I never wanna act my age. What’s my age again? What’s my age again?”
