So, I've decided to make this topic after remembering a conversation I had with Jack a while ago. Basically what happened is he brought up the song "Seven Years" and I made a comment about how I thought it was the "scene kid" version of "Don't Stop Believing". You know, the song that comes on at a party and everyone sings it obnoxiously out of tune whether drunk or just enjoying themselves. And it made me wonder what the "Don't Stop Believing" of each genre was, so I wanted to open that to discussion with everyone. Does anyone have any examples of certain songs like that?

Recently I thought of the Ignition remix for R&B and "Can't Tell Me Nothing" or "Juicy" for hip-hop but both of those are obviously up for debate.

EDIT: Also if a staff member could add the "r" to "whatever" that I obviously forgot that would be cool. :/

Also thought of this because of Jason saying his girlfriend had never heard Oasis.

Was just discussing with a friend this song being one as well haha.

Also, I take back my hip hop choices and nominate "99 Problems".

"Hey There Delilah" for whatever genre you want to place that in. Pop-rock?

Never want to go to a party where Seven Years is playing. Hip hop/pop is a different animal

I agree, and it's probably my least favorite part about having friends who still go to those kind of shows, hearing songs like that at parties of all places.

I was gonna say Artist in the Ambulance, but wasn't sure. You're right though.

yeah. Deadbolt is a more popular song, but TAITA is far easier to sing along to (and is still pretty popular).

"Holland, 1945" for indie music? I wouldn't really know, as much as I like indie music, not many of my friends do. (And it wouldn't get played at parties)

This was my first thought.

I had a friend in college who would often sing the first line to people to see if people would respond with "I know exactly what goes on."

I've never heard Seven Years. I had to look up who sang it.
