My Top 10 Rock, Alternative and Pop Punk Songs of May (May Song Releases Recap)
"Wake me up when May ends, " I said. It is now June and I'm back to bring you something about music and pop culture.
From Green Day's Pollyanna to Twenty One Pilots'Choker.May is a month full of music releases. A month of full head bang, month of full dances,a month of sing along, and a month full of tears and joy. A month of rock, alternative, and pop pjnk songs. Definitely a month for headbangers.
I might be late but here are my Top 10 Rock, Alternative and Pop punk songs released last month:
"If I surrender
To the monsters in me
Will it set me free?
If I Surrender is a song from American band Citizen Soldier –a band who's making an impact through music for those fight battles everyday that others dismiss or judge them for.
This song speaks for those struggling with depression and other mental illnesses, and those who have suicidal thoughts. It's about what they feel and think about themselves. I think, this song can give hope and inspiration for those having silent battles and empathy and understanding for those who are not.
I'm happy that I discovered this band. Worth listening for. They're giving voice for those struggling and can't speak.
A song worth sharing for everyone with its powerful message and vocals just like Citizen Soldier's every song.
TIME 2 is the newest single from American band half•alive .The song was produced by three-time GRAMMY winner Ariel Rechtshaid (Produced some works from Adele, Vampire Weekend, and HAIM) and co-written with Dan Nigro (Olivia Rodrigo's Sour co-writer). TIME 2 is about "waking up in the chaos of life and remembering a child-like state of mind," as what the band describe this song.
This band is really impressive. They sound unique and different with other artists. Also, they still have variety of music.
TIME 2's lyrics and storytelling is superb. This song really implies what the band describe it to be.
No Chances is the tenth and penultimate track Twenty One Pilots' sixth studio album, Scaled and Icy.
The album is composed of vibrant and upbeat tracks, unlike this one. This song is dark and haunting and some parts may be eerie (the 'we come for you' lines. I noticed that this song sounds similar to their previous album Trench. I don't know what the lyrics really imply but it seems dark and intriguing yet have interesting story telling.
I've got chills listening to this track from Scaled and Icy.
"Sometimes I just wanna say
I love myself but not today
Broken Heart of Gold is a new single released by Japanese band ONE OK ROCK last may 28,2021. The song is exclusively written for the live-action film Rurouni Kenshin: The Beginning. Just like the recent single released Renegades, this song is an official theme song for the said film.
I really love this new song. With it's piano melody and ballad style,the song became more emotional aside from it's deep lyrics. It's comforting yet hits hard.
"Well good for you,
I guess you move on really easily
good 4 u is a third single from Olivia Rodrigo's debut album Sour. This song is about an ex-lover who move on easily after a break up. This song debuted on No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the united States, her second number-one song after driver's license.
'good 4 u' is far Olivia Rodrigo's first two singles 'driver's license'and 'deja vu'in terms of vibes and style,not just genre. Olivia prove that she can be versatile in her art,yet still powerful. This song is the Gen Z's new post break-up anthem.
The song is angsty and relatable just like the other track 'brutal'. It's a nostalgic-sounding song that blends pop punk, pop rock, grunge and teen pop genre. It's also heavily driven by guitar and drums,and it can definitely make you scream along in your room while dancing and banging your head while listening.
"I dont want to be without you
But I'm here, screaming by myself
Love race is a song by American pop punk artist and rapper Machine Gun Kelly that feautures vocals from Kellin.Quinn, Sleeping With Sirens vocalist and also features drumming of MGK's long-time collaborator, Travis Barker from Blink-182.
Just like Machine Gun Kelly and Kellin Quinn's collaborations in the past like 'Alone'and 'Swing Life Away'. 'Love race' is a powerful pop punk song. The song is catchy, danceable and can definitely make you head bang. This song sound nostalgic too, like a theme song in a teen movie in early 2000.
I love the harmony of Machine Gun Kelly's lower hoarse voice and Kellin Quinn's higher and thin voice and also the drum skills Travis Barker showcase.
Love race is a song that you will love and make your heart race.
"Choking on the circumstance
Self -sabotage is a sweet romance
Choker is the second single of Twenty One Pilots after Shy Away for their sixth album, Scaled and Icy. The song was released on May 1,2020(Philippine date and time,April 30 for some).
This retro-sounding song id definitely my favorite song from their new album. This song was added to my playlist when I'm empty.
As usual, Tyler Joseph's showcase his relatable and heart-hitting lyrical skill in this song . It seems like this song is written for me because I can really relate to it. This song is comfort and pain in a nutshell.
This song might not be as catchy as the first single, but this is my go-to song.
I really enjoyed music from the past month. The music I can relate to, make me head bang and dance secretly, and make me think and cry about the lyrics.
This,June I'm hoping for more music relases especially in rock, alternative and pop punk genres. And I may write about June releases too, next month.
How about you? What are your favorite music and songs from last month?
