Songs Graduating With Our Seniors

As we have grown up, so has music. Here are some iconic bops that were released from September 2004 to August 2005.

American Idiot by Green Day was released on September 21st, 2004, and is one of the most well-known songs of early to mid-2000’s punk rock. It included politically divisive commentary on the media and its control on the youth. This is extremely relevant, both now and then, though hopefully not in our future.

Miracle by Celine Dion came out on October 11th, 2004, and was a truly gorgeous song inspired by photography captured by Anne Geddes, and her experience coming into motherhood.

The song Vertigo by U2 was released on November 8, 2004, and topped charts in many countries. Its beautiful description of the night sky left many amazed and stunned.

The icon, the legend, the woman, Gwen Stefani, released an absolutely timeless bop on December 14, 2004, Rich Girl. A party song then and now, it is beloved and adored by millions who have streamed the song and have memories that will last a lifetime because of that song.

Jeniffer Lopez’s Get Right, released on January 4, 2005, was released during J-Lo’s prime, and it truly did establish her as a major player and powerful woman in the music industry.

Candy Shop by 50 Cent, released on the 8th of February, 2005, isn’t the most revolutionary song, but it’s fun to dance to, and sometimes, you really just want to have a fun little dancey-dance.

On the list for the second time, because she’s just that great, is Gwen Stefani and her legendary song, Hollaback Girl, released on March 15th, 2005. If this song doesn’t make you go B-A-N-A-N-A-S, I don’t believe you.

April 12, 2005, the song Sugar, We’re Goin Down, by Fall Out Boy was released, and if you’ve had your emo phase yet, you know this song better than the back of your own hand, I know I do.

May 9th, 2005, Feel Good Inc by Gorillaz came out, and millions have loved it since, being one of the most well known alternative/punk songs of the twenty-first century.

On June 7, 2005, Avril Lavigne’s song Fall to Pieces was released, and it was one of her last really good punk songs before going to pop. The song is super angsty, just the way Avril Lavigne does it best.

One of the most annoying songs ever, Axel F by Crazy Frog came out on July 25, 2005. It is nice to listen to with ADHD, though.

Kelly Clarkson released her song, Because Of You, on the 16th of August, 2005, just 3 years after she won American Idol. Now, nearly 20 years later, she’s still an extremely relevant and powerful figure in the music industry.

Throughout our lives, we have been influenced by the music industry and now these songs have grown up with us. Some of these songs are a cornerstone of our society, and some have been lost to the ages, but they all have one thing in common; they have been there throughout our seniors lives, and are now graduating with them!
