There exists a colorful bevy of emotions within the human self. However, one very special and unmistakable mood is that of “bad b*tch”. We all know it, and if you haven’t given in yet, she will make herself known very soon.
This mood consists of feelings such as: I want to wear chunky boots and not brush my hair; I want to look at nobody while walking down the street, and if I do I will make very intimidating eye contact; I want to leave eyeliner on overnight and then go out like that on purpose; most importantly, I want to pop in some headphones and find a playlist that perfectly suits and fuels my bad b*tch mood. Look no further, beautifully angry ladies.
- “Bad Reputation” – Joan Jett
Obviously, but it’s sacrilegious not to start with this.
- “Just What I Needed” – The Cars
To prove that this playlist is not about hating love.
- “Fluorescent Adolescent” – Arctic Monkeys
To provide a steady yet intense walking beat.
- “Debbie Downer” – Courtney Barnett
A secret guru who speaks eloquent bad b*tch.
- “Ironic” – Alanis Morissette
Really any song by this courageous lady rocker is a solid addition to your bad b*tch playlist.
- “Tears Dry On Their Own” – Amy Winehouse
Okay, maybe this playlist is a little lovesick.
- “Ladder” – Joan Osborne
Epitome of a 90s bad b*tch.
- “Take It Easy” – The Vaccines
Perfect for the careless side of this mood.
- “Perfect Places” – Lorde
We know this mood is a Melodrama, and we don’t care.
- “Good as Hell” – Lizzo
Because it wouldn’t be a bad b*tch playlist without her.
To everyone feeling this iconic mood creeping up… let it roar! Happy listening (or maybe, broody listening).
