21 Wrecking Ball - Miley Cyrus Wrecking Ball - Miley Cyrus
22 Heaven's a Lie - Lacuna Coil Heaven's a Lie - Lacuna Coil
23 Wake Me Up When September Ends - Green Day Wake Me Up When September Ends - Green Day

We are in that season of the year when stupid people start saying "Almost time to wake up that Green Day dude".
Truth is that the song is inspired by Billie Joe's father who died in this month when he was just a kid. When he knew this he ran to his bedroom and told her mom to wake him up when september ends. And that's the story, folks.

It's not about drugs, like people on them suggest, it's more about fitting in and learning from the mistake of taking them. - PositronWildhawk

30 We Are All Made of Stars - Moby We Are All Made of Stars - Moby

This song was met with mixed reactions as it came out, and that'as because people misunderstood it. It's not just saying "we can achieve anything because everyone else can", it's really reflecting on how lucky we are to have our lives, spanning from our beginnings. It has a large number of hidden meanings. - PositronWildhawk
