there should actually be a summer camp called punk rock 101 but in ads they says it’s a sport camp for free and they have this symbol for people to know that it’s actually the punk rock 101 camp and so your parents send you there for the rest of the summer where bowling for soup is there to teach you all about punk rock and give you a punk rock makeover and when you get back your parents are like “no!” and you’re like “yes!”


A couple of my favourite songs about being a teenager and hating the world.

// social casualty - 5 seconds of summer // weightless - all time low // extraordinary girl - green day // its time - imagine dragons // dammit - blink 182 // when you see my friends - mayday parade // full time cutie - summertime dropouts // hooligans - issues // pretty little girl - blink 182 // high school never ends - bowling for soup // bite my tongue - you me at six ft oli sykes // she’s a rebel - green day // i’m not okay (i promise) - my chemical romance // room to breathe - you me at six // therapy - all time low // rejects - 5 seconds of summer //

Listen Here

Do you ever just stop for a second when you’re listening to a song and like all of a sudden the music is describing your life and your feelings and it’s so weird because you’ve listened to that song so many times but it’s only now that you’re actually really paying attention to the words and they just relate so much to you that you feel a little emotional? And it’s like in that second you really connect with the band or the singer because you just know that they’ve been through what you’ve been through and they’re singing about it and they’ve turned out great and it just kind of gives you a little bit of hope.
