Twenty One Pilots Appear On "Suicide Squad" Soundtrack

Fresh Hip Hop/ Alternative band takes on a brand new song for the upcoming movie Suicide Squad!

Suicide squad is a movie that is set to premier on August 10th, and Twenty One Pilots have just released their song "Heathens" on June 16th that is used in the movie! They are listed in the soundtracks along with other well-known artists such as Nirvana, Radiohead, Avril Lavigne, Pink Floyd, Kanye West,Lil Wayne, Eminem, and so many more! Being Featured in a movie with so many popular Recording artists is huge for a band like Twenty One Pilots who is at the very beginning of their fame. They begun hitting the radio stations with the song "Stressed Out" and then with ‘ride’ they're only in the beginning stages of something huge! They are a representation of breaking the categories and using creativity to do they’re own style and they're really onto lots of great things- such as being featured in a movie soundtrack!

The movie Suicide Squad is a film about the government getting together super villains to do “good” so to speak as referred to in the movie trailer and take on some sort of mission. This song is called “Heathens” and in the dictionary heathen is described as someone who is uncivilized, irreligious, uncultured. I think this song is a perfect fit to the movie because these villains are like misfits of superhero movies, they’re seen as uncivilized and uncultured. So before even hearing what the song sounds like you can tell it was a good choice for this movie.

The song itself when you listen to the sound of it it goes very well with the theme of villains. It has a slow maybe even a little creepy vibe with it, and that kind of goes with the villains if you think about it. All of the villains are all a little mentally disturbed, or so it seems in the trailer- which makes this song a perfect fit. The words tie in a lot to this too, as they talk about how you fall in love with people like this all the time and you don't even really know it yet. mainly capturing a concept being that you don't really know everyone's story and someone who seems crazy or unorthodox can be the love of your life. I think this is captured best in the line of the song reading, "Please don't make any sudden moves / You don't know the half of the abuse". I know in reality they're talking about his friends being crazy, but they're talking about how really you don't know the half of what they've been through until you've been through it with them. This song embodies the movie so well because its about the positive turn around for these super villains to do some good in the world with their mission with the government.

I'm The Girl Without A 'Friend Group'

And here's why I'm OK with it


Little things remind me all the time.

For example, I'll be sitting in the lounge with the people on my floor, just talking about how everyone's days went. Someone will turn to someone else and ask something along the lines of, "When are we going to so-and-so's place tonight?" Sometimes it'll even be, "Are you ready to go to so-and-so's place now? Okay, we'll see you later, Taylor!"

It's little things like that, little things that remind me I don't have a "friend group." And it's been like that forever. I don't have the same people to keep me company 24 hours of the day, the same people to do absolutely everything with, and the same people to cling to like glue. I don't have a whole cast of characters to entertain me and care for me and support me. Sometimes, especially when it feels obvious to me, not having a "friend group" makes me feel like a waste of space. If I don't have more friends than I can count, what's the point in trying to make friends at all?

I can tell you that there is a point. As a matter of fact, just because I don't have a close-knit clique doesn't mean I don't have any friends. The friends I have come from all different walks of life, some are from my town back home and some are from across the country. I've known some of my friends for years, and others I've only known for a few months. It doesn't really matter where they come from, though. What matters is that the friends I have all entertain me, care for me, and support me. Just because I'm not in that "friend group" with all of them together doesn't mean that we can't be friends to each other.

Still, I hate avoiding sticking myself in a box, and I'm not afraid to seek out friendships. I've noticed that a lot of the people I see who consider themselves to be in a "friend group" don't really venture outside the pack very often. I've never had a pack to venture outside of, so I don't mind reaching out to new people whenever.

I'm not going to lie, when I hear people talking about all the fun they're going to have with their "friend group" over the weekend, part of me wishes I could be included in something like that. I do sometimes want to have the personality type that allows me to mesh perfectly into a clique. I couldn't tell you what it is about me, but there is some part of me that just happens to function better one-on-one with people.

I hated it all my life up until very recently, and that's because I've finally learned that not having a "friend group" is never going to be the same as not having friends.

Poetry On The Odyssey: It's a Girl

An ode to the little girl raised to be insecure.


They raise little girls to be insecure

Little girls grow to be big girls

People always ask big girls why they're so insecure

Big girls aren't quite sure

Day after day the big girl can't keep up

She's exhausted

Her soul feels worn

The big girl learns to grow hard

In a way, she's a bit stronger

People call her a bitch


What is that?

How can she let that affect her

It's simply the only way to be her

She mourns that little girl

Hoping that one day

She'll be strong
