Grow up by Simple Plan

Life is all about having fun, right? No one wants to spend their weekends stuck in a stuffy office. Once you grow up, you'll be expected to make money and pay for all of your own expenses. If your parents are still handing you cash when you go out with your friends, then you should enjoy it while it lasts. This is one of the great songs about not wanting to grow up, because it tells it like it is.


What's My Age Again by Blink 182

Sometimes, it's hard to remember how old you are. You might be in your teens or twenties, but you'll still do childish things. It's fun, so why not? You don't always have to act your age. You just have to remember that you won't always be young enough to get away with certain things, so be careful.


Seventeen Forever by Metro Station

This is always a fun song to listen to, but it's even better when you're seventeen. If you're a few years older, then you might want to check out "22," by Taylor Swift. If you're a bit younger, you can listen to "Fifteen," which is also by Taylor. Pick whichever number matches your age.


Parents Just Don't Understand by Will Smith

Why would you want to grow up if it means you'll end up just like your parents? You may love them, but there are certain things they just don't understand. I mean, look at the clothes they try to get you to wear. They might not know anything about fashion, but Will Smith sure does.


Photograph by NICKELBACK

Nickelback gets a bad rap, but they have some pretty awesome songs. This song tells a story about a man who is looking at an old photo album. In the future, you'll look back at your Facebook and Instagram pics, and you'll miss the good old days.


1985 by SR-71

You might have heard this song remade by Bowling for Soup, but both versions are catchy. It's about a woman who doesn't end up living the life that she always dreamed of living. Take this song as a warning, and make sure you complete your goals! You wouldn't want to end up like Debbie.


Here's to Never Growing up by Avril Lavigne

It doesn't matter how old you are, because you can still act young. Of course, that doesn't mean that you should be immature. You can be childish, and still act responsible when the right time comes.

You can't stop yourself from aging, so there's no need to worry about losing your youth. As much fun as it is being a kid, adult life has its benefits. What's your favorite thing about being young?

Sorry (not sorry!) to disagree but Nickleback are OK!

Nickelback gets a bad rap for a damn good reason. Everything they do is complete shit. Period.
