’90s songs you listened to on headphones in the car when mom and dad were riding you about some bull&$#% (25 Photos)
Like most teens, you were a
sullen teen, and your parents would always be on your case about something—not trying hard enough in school, sleeping too much, being sullen all the time—you know, something dumb and accurate. And they’d always nag you when you were in the car, because it was the only time you couldn’t go hide in your bedroom. But you couldn’t hear them because you had your headphones on so you could drown them out with the music that spoke to you . These are those songs.
“Blind” by Korn. Yes, why a matter of fact, you are ready. Ready to raaaaaage right after you get done with your homework.
“Got Your Money” by ODB. You were all about getting those fat stacks…of $10 bills for mowing neighbors’ lawns.
“Shame” by Stabbing Westward. That odd place where anger and keyboards meet.
“If I Ruled the World” by Nas. Imagine that! Imagining is fun!
“When Worlds Collide” by Powerman 5000. You told people you didn’t go to school dances because they didn’t play good music, and this is the song you meant.
“Guilty Conscience” by Eminem. Like you felt any guilt about anything. Teens don’t feel guilt.
“Faith” by Limp Bizkit. This was a nice way to hide the fact that you still really liked George Michael.
“Hypnotize” by Notorious B.I.G. You seriously considered doing this song at the school talent show.
“Bulls on Parade” by Rage Against the Machine. You didn’t understand their political agenda then, and you don’t now.
“Rosa Parks” by Outkast. This song helped you get at least one question right on an 11th grade history test, stank you very much.
“Bound for the Floor” by Local H. “Born to be down”: It’s like they’re talking about you.
“1st of tha Month” by Bone Thugs N Harmony. For you, the 1st of tha month was allowance day.
“The Dope Show” by Marilyn Manson. It’s okay to admit now that he terrified you back in the day.
“Bawitdaba” by Kid Rock. If you don’t know what it means, you just don’t get it.
“Gin and Juice” by Snoop Dogg. You had “mind on my money, money on my mind” written on your algebra notebook.
“March of the Pigs” by Nine Inch Nails. They’re all pigs man, all of”em.
“METHOD Man” by Wu-Tang Clan. Your get-pumped-up-before-church-league basketball games-song.
“Father of Mine” by Everclear. You wanted so hard to relate to this song about parental neglect even though your dad drove you to school everyday and packed you a lunch and left a note in your lunch telling how proud we was of you, “champ.”
“Intergalactic” by Beastie Boys. You considered yourself the fourth Beastie.
“Blue Monday” by Orgy. You only got into this because the name of the band was so edgy.
“Hard Knock Life” by Jay Z. You pretended not to recognize that the hook was sampled from Annie.
“Bullet With Butterfly Wings” by Smashing Pumpkins. Because you were also a rat in a cage with so much rage.
“Get Money” by Junior M.A.F.I.A. You waited for your Junior M.A.F.I.A. acceptance letter to arrive like it was a letter from Hogwarts.
“Everybody Hurts” by R.E.M. Word. So deep.
