AmazonNaws

Lightning Field by Sneaker Pimps

Lightning Field can have different meanings to different people. My take on it is that you can only push someone so far until they break. They are saying "strike me down, I'll be everything I'm not." I took this as someone can be the kindest person but if you push them to far then that could change.

Twenty One Pilots- Car Radio

IoMoio

Car Radio by Twenty One Pilots

Twenty One Pilots is known for their upbeat songs with deep/sad meanings. Car radio is a personal favorite and it's about how silence can be deadly. It's about having a broken car radio and so you sit there in silence which is when your brain starts thinking too much and brings you down. Saying "sometimes quiet is violent."

The 1975- Me

DailyHive

Me by The 1975

Me is about depression and how it can cause someone to self-sabotage and make multiple wrong decisions. It's also about being lonely and wondering if anyone would mind if they weren't there. It's a sad and deep song that is even difficult for the band to perform as it pertains to some of the member's lives.

All these artists have created iconic songs that touched our hearts. Some of them where made because it hit home to the artist and some were made for others to relate to. They are all worth the listen.
