15 BTS Songs You Need To Check Out Before They Perform On SNL

The best BTS songs that aren't Fake Love.


On April 13 the legendary BTS is going to be the musical performance on SNL. They will be the first K-pop group to debut on American SNL, and I am so proud of them! Therefore, before the boys make their SNL debut, I have compiled a list of some of my favorite, underrated BTS songs everyone should hear!

Cypher 3: Killer

As an avid rap-line fan, of course a BTS cypher makes the list. However, Cypher 3 is one of my favorite songs because it shows that BTS isn't just the regular K-pop group everyone sees them as. They have amazing raps and I believe Cypher 3 really showcases their talents. (Especially Suga's)

No More Dream

A throwback for all you new fans! No More dream is such an iconic song and if you haven't heard it then you're really missing out on quality, young, BTS. Back before they were primed and polished celebrities.

진격의 방탄 - Attack on Bangtan

Attack on Bangtan is the BTS anthem! Literally, they still use this in BTS Run! episodes and Bangtan Bombs! Attack on Bangtan never fails to get me excited and it always gives me butterflies because I just love these boys so much!

좋아요 - Like It (Slow Jam Remix)

For those R&B fans out there! This song also gives me butterflies, but more for the reason that it's an amazing, slow, love song. It showcases RM and Suga's amazing rap skills alongside Jin, Jimin, and Jungkook's amazing vocals.

Epilogue - Young Forever

This song is from the album The Most Beautiful Moment in Life: Young Forever, which I have a tattoo for. This song gives me chills every time I listen to it. The raping on top of the vocals and beautiful melodies. Plus, the song holds such a strong meaning for the band. Truly iconic.

Intro: Never Mind

Off of the previous release to Young Forever, Never Mind is from The Most Beautiful moment in Life, Pt. 2. Once again, this song showcases the rap-line's amazing skills over a beautiful melody. And as always it holds an amazing meaning within the lyrics, encouraging listeners to continue on with their goals and life even if they feel like they can't. (I might also be biased because I love Suga so much.)

뱁새 - Silver Spoon

One of the groups more confident songs. ***Baepsae is a hype song with hip hop roots. Personally, it is one of my favorite BTS songs of all time. Essentially, the song is talking about how cool they are since they weren't handed their fame, they worked really hard to gain their status.

Cypher 4

Surprise, surprise. Cypher 4 made it onto the list! Of course, for a lot of the same reasons as Cypher 3. Cypher 4 truly showcases the rappers abilities, however, I enjoy this song a lot because the boys have become so much more confident with this song. The best example is when RM says "sorry bae." along with the hook, "I love, I love, I love myself." Also, when they perform the song live they wear these velvet robes and look absolutely incredible!

Outro: House Of Cards

I don't know who decided to have Jungkook and Jimin's vocals over a track that sounds like it came off of a The Weeknd album, but I hope they get a pay raise. This song is extremely sultry, but in a very soothing way, it's hard to explain. Truthfully, it wasn't even one of my favorite songs at first, until I listened to it once and then I couldn't stop!

둘! 셋! (그래도 좋은 날이 더 많기를) - 2! 3! (Wishing on Better Days)

2! 3! holds a very special place in my heart. First, it's off my favorite BTS album, WINGS: You Never Walk Alone. Also, this is the song that BTS dedicated to their ARMYs. Essentially, they're saying that they are wishing for more good days to come for ARMY and for themselves. They say that they hold ARMY will count 1, 2, 3, and forget all of their sad memories.

상남자 - Boy In Luv

This is probably BTS' most cringy song, but I love it so much! I think it is absolutely hilarious to watch these seven boys try to impress the girl they're singing to, however, they fail miserably. However, J-Hope's line "ABCDEFGH, Hakuna Matata" is the most iconic thing to ever be written in history, and therefore it makes the song a bop.

땡 - Ddaeng

Technically, this mainly a song from rap-line, but it's still such an iconic song. Essentially, the song is about how BTS is at the top of the charts at the moment. Even so, the best aspect of this song, in my opinion, is the use of a traditional Korean sounding track. I love this because it's just a reminder to everyone listening that BTS is Korean and they're proud of where they come from.


Lie is a Jimin solo from You Never Walk Alone. This is one of my favorite songs because it eloquently showcases Jimin's vocal ability. Granted, all of the songs on this album showcase all of the members talents, but something about Lie has always made the song feel special to me.

Magic Shop

I love this song because it has such a sweet message from BTS. Essentially the song is talking about how they have struggled in their lives with depression and other mental health issues, and they kind of tell ARMY that if they (BTS) can survive then ARMY can get through their dark stages as well.

Airplane pt. 2

Airplane pt. 2 is such an amazing song. I love the fact that they incorporated the track with Latin roots for the music style. Also, the music video for this song is so amazing!

I could go on forever about the underrated BTS songs, but this is a list of some of the most amazing songs that don't get as much attention as songs like DNA, Fake Love, or MIC DROP.

The worlds of beauty and fashion often collide, whether for good or bad. In both, underrepresentation has always been, and remains to be, a major unresolved issue. After the recent killing of George Floyd, many people are rightfully enraged, compounded by the fact his death in police custody wasn't an isolated incident.

Police brutality against Black people is not new, and isn't going away till we start dedicating resources to fighting it. Many of us, as individuals, have only begun in the last week scratching the surface of what it means to educate ourselves on race, historical race relations, and how to be an ally to the Black community.

Feel A Lil' Better: Because You Can Still Connect While Disconnecting From Social Media

Your weekly wellness boost from Odyssey.

I don't know if you've heard, but there's a lot going on right now, particularly in relation to George Floyd's death, Black Lives Matter, and public protest of racial injustice in the United States. While we can all agree that this deserves conversations, change, and actionable good, social media arguments with Great Aunt Linda are not where social change begins and ends. Spending too much time scrolling through your phone has never been healthy, but now it's even more addicting — what does that one person from my hometown say about this? How can I further education within discussions? Am I posting enough?

True Self-Care Is HARD, That Face Mask Isn't Actually Going To Solve Your Problems

There's a line between self-care and self-destruction.

Anyone who hasn't been living under a rock for the past few years has seen something somewhere about self-care whether it was on Facebook, Twitter, or their Instagram feed. Oftentimes it's pictures of celebrities or influencers sipping green smoothies or slathering on mud masks with #selfcare. It's posts like these that made me realize that "self-care" has become the ultimate buzz word, soaring in popularity but in the process, it's lost most of its original meaning. It's time to set the record straight and reclaim the term.

Although self-care has been around for quite some time, within the past few years it's been misconstrued and commodified as our capitalist society tends to do with things it thinks can be profited off. Self-care is now being peddled as something that can be bought and sold on the shelf at Target rather than something that takes real work to achieve. This fake self-care movement is not only enabling people to over-indulge themselves, but it has created a crutch for people to avoid the responsibility of taking true care of themselves. Instead of doing the work that needs to be done, many people fall into the trap of rewarding themselves for doing nothing at all — this can quickly become an unhealthy coping mechanism, especially with corporations cheering us on (to buy their next product). Long, hard day at work? Just grab your third iced coffee of the day! Fight with your SO? Buy that 50-dollar face mask, it'll make you feel better! This is how self-care becomes self-sabotage and self-destructive.

10 Home Items You Need For Stress Relief, On The Days You 'Literally Cannot'

Fill your home with peaceful, calming coping mechanisms.

I'd like to think that 2020 is teaching us a lot. Or will teach us a lot. Or will be a story we tell at parties one day. Ultimately, this year has been — and is probably going to continue to be — a bit of a mess.

At the beginning of the year, Australia was on fire and we mourned the death of Kobe Bryant. Then, coronavirus (COVID-19) took our spring and shut us in our homes, inciting panic over public health and sparking political upheaval at every decision made by local and federal officials alike. Now, a week after George Floyd's death at the hands of Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, a nationwide conversation is reignited with protests regarding racial injustice in the United States. There is an enormous amount of tension, hurt, and change that is upon the American people.
