Chapter 266: I Love It

00s and 10s pop rock

What kind of maniac crashes their car into a bridge, just to let it burn, then declares “I don’t care”?? The punky likes of Charli XCX and Avril Lavigne can get away with murder because they reliably pull out all the stops for a world-beating chorus. Almost as unbelievable is Franz Ferdinand using a full 25% of “Take Me Out”’s runtime just to set up that (admittedly phenomenal) beat switch. To balance out such heresies, this chapter includes some slightly deeper cuts from Weezer and No Doubt that show the depth of these pop-rock mainstays.
