Picture this, it’s a non-disclosed year in the 2000s and life blows. Your worst enemy got the Motorola RAZR phone before you did, your middle school girlfriend just passed you a sticky note during math class saying she wants to split and your mom said no to getting frosted tips for the sixth time this week. On top of all that, it’s pouring cats and dogs to really add to the dramatics of it all.

This playlist is for that inner dramatic angsty middle schooler in all of us.
