5 New Music Releases That Are Way More Important Than LWYMMD

For those who don't have time for songs about petty bullsh*t

Posted on

As I'm sure you're aware, Taylor Swift just dropped her new single, "Look What You Made Me Do."

Here are 5 songs that dropped this month that, instead of focusing on petty personal bullsh*t, focus on the insanity that is our world and country.

They might make you cry, they might make you inspired, but what they will not do is make you roll your eyes and ask "Why the f*ck do you think we still care, Taylor? Donald Trump is our president and I bet you voted for him, didn't you? DIDN'T YOU??"

I didn't want to say it Taylor, but look what you made me do.

1. Stand Up for Something (Feat. Common) by Andra Day

This one comes first, since it's pretty much the exact opposite of LWYMMD.

"You can have, you can have everything

But what does it, what does it mean

It all means nothing

If you don't stand up for something"

2. Bridges by Fifth Harmony

Relevant, seeing as Trump is threatening to shut down the government if we don't build his f*cking wall.

"We build bridges

Oh, we build bridges

No, we won't separate

We know love can conquer hate

So we build bridges

Bridges, not walls"

3. Silence by Marshmello (ft. Khalid)

Because nonviolent protest for our civil rights is still a thing that has to happen in this country.

"I found peace in your violence

Can't tell me there's no point in trying

I'm at one, and I've been silent for too long

I've been quiet for too long"

4. Rainbow by Kesha

For anyone who has struggled with depression and/or the hate that is directed at the LGBTQ+ community.

"So when the winds are howling strong

And you think you can't go on, hold tight, sweetheart

You'll find a rainbow, rainbow, baby

Trust me, I know life is scary

But just put those colors on, girl

Come and play along with me tonight"

5. Water Me by Lizzo

Okay, besides the fact that this woman is a goddess, this is a no-f*cks jam for all my independent babes out there.

"I don't get dehydrated, I moisturize it daily

I am my inspiration, I am my inspiration"

Stay strong out there, music lovers.
