Songs That Perfectly Describe the Year 2020

I think we can all agree that 2020 is basically Hell. These songs mostly reflect the social issues of coronavirus, the George Floyd riots and those guys who are constantly on the news because they took down a statue of [insert name here], but there are obvious annual occurrences too, and if 2020 has more problems, feel free to point them out, or if the year improves, submit more optimistic songs, (for instance "Getting Better" by the Beatles.)
The Top Ten
1 20/20 - Survivor 20/20 - Survivor Cover Art

I figured I'd start out with a simple song that is kind of ironically formatted as "20/20 - Survivor" because at this point, surviving 2020 is a miracle.

2020 has been ass so far so I'm grateful I survived it.

Unless you're describing the rating.

2 Help! - The Beatles Help! - The Beatles Cover Art

Put it in whatever context you want, but Help! seems fitting for every social issue put in the description of this list

3 Livin' On a Prayer - Bon Jovi Livin' On a Prayer - Bon Jovi Cover Art

Much like Help!, Livin' On a Prayer is fitting for COVID-19, the riots, and so on

4 Doom and Gloom - The Rolling Stones Doom and Gloom - The Rolling Stones Cover Art

At this point, this song sums up 2020 in three words. The Rolling Stones are so optimistic.

5 Social Disease - Bon Jovi Social Disease - Bon Jovi Cover Art

This is what coronavirus literally is.

6 Don't Stand So Close to Me - The Police Don't Stand So Close to Me - The Police Cover Art

Another Coronavirus anthem. What a great year 2020 is.

7 American Idiot - Green Day American Idiot - Green Day Cover Art

Those rioters were exactly this. I envy you if you live elsewhere.

8 The Wild Boys - Duran Duran The Wild Boys - Duran Duran Cover Art

In other words, rioters.

9 Misery - Maroon 5 Misery - Maroon 5 Cover Art

It's funny that this album is called "Hands All Over," since that's exactly what we're trying to avoid, but I agree.

A pretty universal feeling as of 2020. I don't think I know a single soul who wasn't in misery during quarantine.

10 Don't Stop Believin' - Journey Don't Stop Believin' - Journey Cover Art

I considered ending my top 10 songs with "Welcome to Hell," but I decided to end this list on a high note and some optimism so, Don't Stop Believin' it is.

True, this year was ass but we still should believe in it and stay positive.

Thanks for having at least some optimism at the end.

The Contenders
11 Keep Holding On - Avril Lavigne Keep Holding On - Avril Lavigne Cover Art

True because this year been brazy but we should keep holding on.

12 Slipped Away - Avril Lavigne Slipped Away - Avril Lavigne Cover Art
13 Complicated - Avril Lavigne Complicated - Avril Lavigne Cover Art
14 Wake Me Up When September Ends - Green Day Wake Me Up When September Ends - Green Day Cover Art

My September was pretty bad.

15 Everything Sux - Descendents Everything Sux - Descendents Cover Art

Everything sucks because the same people who are whining about 2020 were also whining about 2019. I bet they'll also whine about 2021.

Yeah, everything kinda does suck, to put it bluntly.

Exactly. Couldn't describe it better

16 Another One Bites the Dust - Queen Another One Bites the Dust - Queen Cover Art
17 We are Warriors - Avril Lavigne We are Warriors - Avril Lavigne Cover Art

I think that's why Avril Lavigne made is song in the first place
Did anyone know Avril got this song off her album Head Above Water called 'Warrior'. A fact just in case no one knew

18 Harder to Breathe - Maroon 5 Harder to Breathe - Maroon 5 Cover Art
19 The Long and Winding Road - The Beatles The Long and Winding Road - The Beatles Cover Art

This song is about Paul's private parts.

20 Hold On - Wilson Phillips Hold On - Wilson Phillips Cover Art

For when the world is properly reunited with their loved ones.

21 Knockin' on Heaven's Door - Bob Dylan Knockin' on Heaven's Door - Bob Dylan Cover Art
22 We Didn’t Start the Fire - Billy Joel We Didn’t Start the Fire - Billy Joel Cover Art

Coronavirus, Donald Trump, Murder Hornets, Karens, Riots in Hong Kong, WHAT ELSE DO I HAVE TO SAY? We didn't start 2020, it's been always burning since the world's been turning. I know some of it doesn't rhyme, but you know, Billy Joel is a god.

23 Screaming Goats - Cotton and Gin Screaming Goats - Cotton and Gin Cover Art

As silly as this may be, it sums up my feelings for this year without actually using lyrics.

Yes because I want to summon a screaming goat and cure people's depression.

I played the sample and here are my thoughts: This is perfect. How ain't this #1?

24 Head Above Water - Avril Lavigne Head Above Water - Avril Lavigne Cover Art
25 Jesus, Take the Wheel - Carrie Underwood Jesus, Take the Wheel - Carrie Underwood Cover Art

Even if you're an atheist, you gotta admit whoever has the wheel as of now must be "driving" 2020 intoxicated or has highway hypnosis or something. (Things are improving, yes, but that doesn't mean the rest of the year didn't suck.)
