1. Stone Sour – Say You’ll Haunt me
I absolutely love this song. I am sure that is easy to tell considering I write about Stone Sour and Slipknot a little more than most bands. The melody is just catchy and the guitar solo wraps around your ears like smooth, soft waves at a beach when you are just lying there enjoying the relaxation. Corey Taylor, you do belong to me! Don’t you ever forget that!
2. Papa Roach – No Matter What
Beautiful lyrics. I recently got married and because it was a quick ceremony we weren’t able to make it a grand event the way a year long planned wedding would be. Trust me, if I could have had the choice, I would have walked down to this song! Nothing says “commitment” like, “I’ll take a bullet for you if it comes to that.” I have always been a P. Roach fan since I was an annoying, screaming pre-teen ravaging through my pubescent [please give me credit for that word, I nailed it on my first try!] years. It’s great to know a band like this is still going strong.
3. Dr. Dre – I Need A Doctor ft. Eminem, Skylar Grey
Judge me, I DON’T CARE! Fucking Mastodon has twerking women on their new video for The Motherload (and sweet tap dancing Jeezus! They do have the motherloard). If you clicked that link, welcome back. I was just staring at that video longer than it should have been playing. Anyhoo, I like to hear Eminem’s softer side on touchy subject. To be honest, some people may not enjoy Eminem’s raps but to me, his raps really are telling a story. I feel as though I am sitting with him and he is just speaking to me. He doesn’t always talk about big booty hoes, sometimes he feels like getting something off his chest, on top of that, I always enjoy hearing about a good bromance.
4. Metric – Black Sheep
Scott Pilgrim vs. the World was the first time I heard this song. I like the version with Brie Larson. I like anything with Brie Larson. I even liked the train wreck daughter she was in United States of Tara. I have fond memories of menstruating while I watched that show and it really justified my mood swings. There is a lot of “I” in this one. Whatev. This song is pretty awesome.
5. The Chainsmokers – #SELFIE
Let me make this perfectly clear: I am a Jersey girl. I am a Northern New Jersey girl. I am not orange, I did not pump my own gas (I have to now since I’m in Massachusetts!) but I can still fist pump like a champ! It will always be in me to enjoy house music. With that said, let the judgement begin – but first, lemme take a selfie!
6. Queen – Bohemian Rhapsody
I cannot be the only person who thinks of Wayne’s World when they hear this song. This timeless piece still remains as one of Queen’s most popular, best known songs. This song is so epic it can be a movie on its’ own. It has dramatic, strong, simple, peaceful melodies that when combined makes an immortal anthem. Bravo, Freddie Mercury, bravo!
7. SR – 71 – Another Night Alone
Ah, high school days. I started listening to SR-71 when I was 17 years old. No matter what mp3 player, iPod, iPhone I may purchase, I will always have SR-71 on it and just jam out. It brings me back to times where picking out which fishnets will go with my new chokers were my hardest decisions. Didn’t have a care in the world and then life happened and dicked everyone -.- poop!
8. Nickleback – Something In Your Mouth
Every girl needs a slut anthem despite what any woman will tell you! We all need that one song that just revs up our engine and just implodes us with so much sexy that we need to spill it on someone… our boyfriends, husbands, or that dude around the way! Do your thing, boo-boo! I don’t hear guys complaining when we throw on our easy access outfits.
9. My Chemimal Romance – Teenagers
Teenagers are scary. Have you seen the news? Watch an episode of Killer Kids. SHIT IS NO JOKE! PS. Ex front man of My Chemical Romance just dropped his solo album called Hesitant Alien.
10. Interpol – Slow Hands
I have this song in my head whenever I think of fun times of my friends in high school and college. Random and fun memories just flood through my mind in flashes during the course of this song. It has absolutely no significant meaning to me but it just instantly makes me reminiscence of good times. Great song and the video is slooowwww and can make any stoner watching it think there is something wrong with his connection.
