alt-rock-playlist

Remember these? They played in the background while you were growing up. 

Three hours of annoying alt and pop rock from the 90s to the early 2000s. Some of these songs you love, some of them are your guilty pleasures, and some of them you want to annihilate with flames and sledgehammers.

Updated Dec 2014: shuffled the order, swapped out six songs for others, and edited the tracklist to show the year of album release, because someone was doubting my 90s street cred

Punch Everyone.

“In the beginning, nobody knew what to make of us. Seven super-powered Avengers fans—who came together because the Avengers had fallen apart. Now there are four of us and we’ve fallen apart. I have no idea what will happen to us. But maybe that’s the point. That there are no guarantees. There are no happy endings. But you show up anyway. You don’t give up, you never give up. Maybe that’s what it takes… to be a hero.”
