Top 10 Underrated All Time Low Songs

Top 10 Underrated All Time Low Songs

Even I, a long time fan, haven't given these songs enough credit.

All time low is underrated enough to account for every one of their songs. They pour their hearts out into almost every album, put out bops that literally anyone can jam to and yet, they still struggle to get on the charts. But artists, and I use that term lightly, that say the same word eighty times or sing about having sex with random people can hit number one each week? Yeah, let's not go there.

However, some of their songs are so underrated that I can't fathom. The only ones that seem to appreciate them are the fans that have been around since the beginning, aka me. These are the top ten most underrated All Time Low songs ever.

Also please enjoy gif usage of the idiots, being idiots.

1. Shameless - So Wrong It's Right

Shameless is song that you listen to with your hands up in the air, dancing around your room. Even though the song is actually about someone who is fake in everything they do. It's a classic All Time Low sound and lyrics.

2. If These Sheets Were States - Don't Panic

This song, it's about sex. More specifically, phone sex. Yes, believe it or not, All Time Low coined the phrase "Pillow Talk" years before Zayn did. This song is about being in a long distance relationship and how you'd do just about anything to get that person to next to you.

3. Guts - Dirty Work

Now I know we don't like Dirty Work.. don't attack me.. but there had to be at least one good underrated one on there.

Guts is a song about going for your dreams, not giving up and working until you get what you want. It doesn't matter the subject matter, if you listen to this song before asking someone out or even going into an interview, you will feel like you can conquer the world.

4. Tidal Waves - Future Hearts

This song features Mark "Daddy" Hoppus. If you don't know who Mark Hoppus is, please stop reading this and go culture yourself.

5. Caroline (B-Side) - Straight to DVD II

Guess what, another song about sex. This song is super upbeat and about how instead of a threesome to someone being in love with one person. Aside from that, it's a song that you can turn on during a party and still keep everyone pumped up!

6. The Irony of Choking on a Lifesaver - Don't Panic

This song is a straight up bop. It's the biggest "fuck you" that all time low has ever written. This song goes out to the exes that always try to pop back up into your life. It's for the fuck boys that text you at two o'clock in the morning. It's for the person that is always talking shit about you, that can't just let you be happy. They always have to say something to bring you down.

7. Walls - Nothing Personal

Walls is a great love song. It's about finally letting someone in. Letting the walls that you kept up go down and let yourself be loved by someone that really cares about you. I'm usually not one for sappy love songs, just because they're always in that tone.. you know what i'm talking about, but this one is upbeat and positive and honestly a love song that you would miss if you weren't listening closely.

8. Ground Control - Last Young Renegade

With the galaxy theme going here, it's a groovy little song that just about anyone can relate to. It's two of the biggest LGBTQ+ artists on it, Tegan and Sara, and it's a different side of All Time Low that older fans hadn't experienced before and honestly, I'm here for it. It's all about having someone to keep you grounded. Also, this is one of Alex's favorite songs on the new album, so.

9. Cinderblock Garden - Future Hearts

You know how there's a song that just feels like it was written just for you? It's a song that every time you hear it, you feel whole and good? You feel complete? This is that song. Every time I listen to Cinderblock Garden, I feel like I can conquer the world in a day. I can finish anything I start or put my mind to. It makes me feel important and that someone cares about who I am.

10. Painting Flowers - Almost Alice

I will fight anyone that tries to disagree. This song is a bop that almost no one knows, they never play (probably because of copyright and Disney yada yada), and when I mention it to other fans, they don't like to acknowledge it.

There you have it, do you agree with my choices? Now that you've been cultured, take the time to listen to these bops and find out that pretty much all of their songs are really underrated. You're Welcome.

9 Reasons Crocs Are The Only Shoes You Need

Crocs have holes so your swag can breathe.

Do you have fond childhood objects that make you nostalgic just thinking about your favorite Barbie or sequenced purse? Well for me, its my navy Crocs. Those shoes put me through elementary school. I eventually wore them out so much that I had to say goodbye. I tried Airwalks and sandals, but nothing compared. Then on my senior trip in New York City, a four story Crocs store gleamed at me from across the street and I bought another pair of Navy Blue Crocs. The rest is history. I wear them every morning to the lake for practice and then throughout the day to help air out my soaking feet. I love my Crocs so much, that I was in shock when it became apparent to me that people don't feel the same. Here are nine reasons why you should just throw out all of your other shoes and settle on Crocs.

1. They are waterproof.

These bad boys can take on the wettest of water. Nobody is sure what they are made of, though. The debate is still out there on foam vs. rubber. You can wear these bad boys any place water may or may not be: to the lake for practice or to the club where all the thirsty boys are. But honestly who cares because they're buoyant and water proof. Raise the roof.

2. Your most reliable support system

There is a reason nurses and swimming instructors alike swear by Crocs. Comfort. Croc's clogs will make you feel like your are walking on a cloud of Laffy Taffy. They are wide enough that your toes are not squished, and the rubbery material forms perfectly around your foot. Added bonus: The holes let in a nice breeze while riding around on your Razor Scooter.

3. Insane durability

Have you ever been so angry you could throw a Croc 'cause same? Have you ever had a Croc bitten while wrestling a great white shark? Me too. Have you ever had your entire foot rolled like a fruit roll up but had your Crocs still intact? Also me. All I know is that Seal Team 6 may or may not have worn these shoes to find and kill Osama Bin Laden. Just sayin'.

4. Bling, bling, bling

Jibbitz, am I right?! These are basically they're own money in the industry of comfortable footwear. From Spongebob to Christmas to your favorite fossil, Jibbitz has it all. There's nothing more swag-tastic than pimped out crocs. Lady. Killer.

5. So many options

From the classic clog to fashionable sneakers, Crocs offer so many options that are just too good to pass up on. They have fur lined boots, wedges, sandals, loafers, Maryjane's, glow in the dark, Minion themed, and best of all, CAMO! Where did your feet go?!

6. Affordable

Crocs: $30

Feeling like a boss: Priceless

7. Two words: Adventure Straps

Because you know that when you move the strap from casual mode chillin' in the front to behind the heal, it's like using a shell on Mario Cart.

8. Crocs cares

Okay, but for real, Crocs is a great company because they have donated over 3 million pairs of crocs to people in need around the world. Move over Toms, the Croc is in the house.

9. Stylish AF

The boys will be coming for you like Steve Irwin.

Who cares what the haters say, right? Wear with pride, and go forth in style.

From One Nerd To Another

My contemplation of the complexities between different forms of art.


Aside from reading Guy Harrison's guide to eliminating scientific ignorance called, "At Least Know This: Essential Science to Enhance Your Life" and, "The Breakthrough: Immunotherapy and the Race to Cure Cancer" by Charles Graeber, an informative and emotional historical account explaining the potential use of our own immune systems to cure cancer, I read articles and worked on my own writing in order to keep learning while enjoying my winter break back in December. I also took a trip to the Guggenheim Museum.

I wish I was artistic. Generally, I walk through museums in awe of what artists can do. The colors and dainty details simultaneously inspire me and remind me of what little talent I posses holding a paintbrush. Walking through the Guggenheim was no exception. Most of the pieces are done by Hilma af Klint, a 20th-century Swedish artist expressing her beliefs and curiosity about the universe through her abstract painting. I was mostly at the exhibit to appease my mom (a K - 8th-grade art teacher), but as we continued to look at each piece and read their descriptions, I slowly began to appreciate them and their underlying meanings.

I like writing that integrates symbols, double meanings, and metaphors into its message because I think that the best works of art are the ones that have to be sought after. If the writer simply tells you exactly what they were thinking and how their words should be interpreted, there's no room for imagination. An unpopular opinion in high school was that reading "The Scarlet Letter" by Nathaniel Hawthorne was fun. Well, I thought it was. At the beginning of the book, there's a scene where Hawthorne describes a wild rosebush that sits just outside of the community prison. As you read, you are free to decide whether it's an image of morality, the last taste of freedom and natural beauty for criminals walking toward their doom, or a symbol of the relationship between the Puritans with their prison-like expectations and Hester, the main character, who blossoms into herself throughout the novel. Whichever one you think it is doesn't matter, the point is that the rosebush can symbolize whatever you want it to. It's the same with paintings - they can be interpreted however you want them to be.

As we walked through the building, its spiral design leading us further and further upwards, we were able to catch glimpses of af Klint's life through the strokes of her brush. My favorite of her collections was one titled, "Evolution." As a science nerd myself, the idea that the story of our existence was being incorporated into art intrigued me. One piece represented the eras of geological time through her use of spirals and snails colored abstractly. She clued you into the story she was telling by using different colors and tones to represent different periods. It felt like reading "The Scarlet Letter" and my biology textbook at the same time. Maybe that sounds like the worst thing ever, but to me it was heaven. Art isn't just art and science isn't just science. Aspects of different studies coexist and join together to form something amazing that will speak to even the most untalented patron walking through the museum halls.
