ONTD Original: 11 Early 2000s Pop Rock Tracks For Your Angsty Pubescent Soul



"Guess who's back? Back again? Franky's back, brand new set," is what I would have said to start off this post if I was a poser, but I am most definitely not. Labels are for cans of soup, and this can of soup has a label that says 'no label'

Now that we have that done and over with, let's go back to the topic-at-hand. Today, my fellow freaks and geeks, we're going to be remininscing about some of my our favourite tunes by some of my our favourite female pop rock singers, sometimes singer-songwriters, of the early oughts

These songs were magical in every way. The cadence used by every singer was able to blur the lines of what constituted a vowel, how that vowel sounded, and how long it should last. These songs made you go to the mall to buy every graphic t imagineable at every store offering 2-for-1 deals. These songs made you understand that you weren't alone, but at the same time, those problems you dealt with, they were yours alone



Now grab a cup of your favourite black coffee to wash down that benzodiazapene you plopped on top of your tongue, and let's get into all our feelings


"My Happy Ending" — Avril Lavigne (2004)
Let's talk this over... It's not like we're dead... Was it something I did? Was it something you said? Don't leave me hangi--
Y'all know the rest of the lyrics by heart, don't even pretend





"Everything" — Fefe Dobson (2003)
Justice for Fefe Dobson. My ears were always ready to be her eeVeEeeEERAYYTHIIING



"Don't Let Me Get Me" — P!nk (2001)
L.A. told her she'd be a pop star, all she'd have to do is change everything she was. So P!nk decided to be Black for a hot minute before realizing she wasn't Black, but at the same time couldn't be compared to damn Britney Spears. She's just so pretty and white, but that ain't P!nk



"Breathe" — Michelle Branch (2003)
IF I JUST BREATHE THEN FILL THE SPACE IN BETWEEN I KNOW EVERYTHANG WILL BE ALRIGHT BREEATHE dSDASDF IF I JUST BREATHEEEE!!!! AIIIIIIYAI AND AIIIIIYAI GIVE U JUST A LIL TIMe... this track and "Everywhere" and "All You Wanted," and basically any track from Michelle Branch's album Hotel Paper makes me absolutely lose it, and me and my air guitar don't care what you think



"So Yesterday" — Hilary Duff (2003)
If it's over let it go, and... I'm still keeping that shit you gave me. 17 years, two babies, one failed Lizzie McGuire reboot later and this track and the entire Metamorphosis album still slaps hard



"What I Like About You" — Lillix (2003)
Lillix's cover of this song was >>>> and was part of the OST to the ultimate angsty 2000s teen comedy Freaky Friday. Word on the street, Lindsay Lohan's lipsyncing in this song is what drove Aaron Carter away from Hilary's arms (source: me)



"Take Me Away" — Pink Slip (2003)
Okay, Pink Slip is not a real band, but it really should've been. Freaky Friday should've released an OST that featured only music from the band. Would've broken records, I swear



"La La" — Ashlee Simpson (2004)
In 2004, Ashlee's sister Jessica was singing about "loving angels instead." Ashlee, on the other hand, made the ultimate feminist decision of dyeing her hair black and releasing a single dedicated to masturbation. The power, the influence. Then SNL happened. Now she's Diana Ross's daughter-in-law, so who's laughing now? Ashlee is



"Perfect Day" — Hoku (2001)
Just because you're angsty doesn't mean you can't be happy with your guitar sometimes. It may be a perfect day today, but there's always tomorrow!



"A Thousand Miles" — Vanessa Carlton (2002)
Vanessa Carlton playing on a moving piano as she sings about her LDR was the tomorrow I was talking about



"Billy S" — Skye Sweetnam (2003)
Wake up tired, Monday mornings suck,
It's way too early to catch a bus,
Why conform without a fuss,
Daddy Daddy, no, I don't want to go to school, woo!
I don't need to read Billy Shakespeare,
Meet Juliet or Malvolio,
Feel for once what it's like to rebel now,
I want to break out, let's go!
Teachers treat us all like clones,
Sit up straight, take off your headphones,
I don't blame them, they get paid,
Money money, woo, lot's of money money, woo!
I don't need to read Billy Shakespeare,
Meet Juliet or Malvolio,
Feel for once what it's like to rebel now,
I want to break out, let's go!
Get out, get out, get out, get out, woo!
Get out, get out, get out, get out!
To skip or not to skip? that is the question.
Get out, get out, get out, get out, woo!
Get out, get out, get out, get out, get out, get out, get out,
Get out, get out, get out, get out, get out, get out, get out!
I don't need to read Billy Shakespeare,
Meet Juliet or Malvolio,
Feel for once what it's like to rebel now,
I want to break out, let's go!
I don't need to read Billy Shakespeare,
Meet Juliet or Malvolio,
Feel for once what it's like to rebel now,
I want to break out, let's go!
Get out, get out, get out, get out, woo!
Get out, get out, get out, get out, woo!
Feel for once what it's like to rebel now,
I want to break out, let's go!
Get out, get out, get out, get out, get out, get out, get out!

This song literally speaks for itself. I don't need to read Billy Shakespeare is RIGHT
