Disclaimer: I haven’t heard every single song released in 2017 so these are the top songs that I have listened to. It is an opinion and you are welcome to disagree with me. There is a common thread to the songs that I choose. Music was very important to me when I was younger and going through my rock, emo, gothic and punk phases. The songs on this list speak to this generation’s anxieties and fears in a cathartic manner in a similar way to those I listened to when I was young did. It always gets better ….
Please note: Some of the MV’s do not have subtitles, but these are easily found on YouTube or on Genius.
