The 2014 Midterm Elections are so nigh it hurts, you all. As in, they're today (November 4).
Since we know you're all going to be hitting the polls -- provided you're 18+ -- and since we also know you're likely going to be standing in line for more than a minute there, we made you a little something. Check it, an entire playlist of tunes that are the perfect accompaniment to rocking up to Rock The Vote.
Listen below and share your own suggested tracks in the comments.
1. "Waiting on the World to Change," John Mayer
"Sounds corny, but I would pick this song because that’s what waiting for poll results feels like." - Tamar Anitai
2. "Won't Get Fooled Again," The Who
"I'm not sure 'Meet the new boss, same as the old boss' is exactly the message Rock the Vote is all about, though."- Marty Beckerman
3. "The Waiting," Tom Petty
"The waiting is the hardest part." - Jonathan Goldner
4. "Dance Yrself Clean," LCD Soundsystem
"Because it’s nine minutes long and it takes forever to vote." - Gil Kaufman
5. "It's A Hit," Rilo Kiley
"This song reminds me of the frustration I felt in our leaders who were elected before I could vote. Now that I have the power I want to make sure to use it." - Christina Beale
6. "Baby Don't Like," Gwen Stefani
"Politicians aren't often known for their honesty, so what better song to be humming along to than this when voting for a candidate?" - Cory Midgarden
7. "I," Kendrick Lamar
"I’ll be listening to Kendrick Lamar 'I,' because the song captures the spirit of America in 2014. We’re imperfect and our generation has a lot to deal with, but with a little self-love we can bring about change within ourselves and then our government. It all sounds very Power to the People." - Rob Markamn
8. "The Payback," James Brown
"It's an empowering track that gets me psyched to vote on ballot initiatives, even if they're as lame as whether or not proposed legislation should be distributed electronically vs. on paper (OF COURSE THEY SHOULD BECAUSE IT IS 2014 WHY ARE WE EVEN TALKING ABOUT THIS THERE ARE PEOPLE STARVING IN THE STREETS!)" - Adam Murphy
9. "DIY2K," PUJOL
"I listend to PUJOL when I voted for the President and I'll listen to PUJOL when I vote this time around -- mostly because of these lyrics (even if they are kind of sarcastic), "Not disenchanted/ But feeling stuck/ So, yeah, dude I do give a f---/ America, you know better/ I know we can get it together/ So baby, tell me about the dream." - Brenna Ehrlich
