In the early 1990s, The Spice Girls coined the term “Girl Power.” Girl Power became a worldwide phenomenon giving young girls the motivation and confidence to do what they wanted with their life. Some became athletes, some became CEOs, and some became musicians. This playlist is a compilation of some girl-lead bands that are slaying the music industry, and your hearts.

How does that saying go…. singers do it louder, guitarists finger faster, bassists do it deeper….. oh, and drummers hit it harder. I honestly don’t know what else to write other than drummers are really hot and I’m gonna present to you some of my faves. So, let’s do it.
(p.s. these are in no particular order)
Mike Fuentes; Pierce the Veil
What a precious lil nugget… And look at those tats, damn.
Andy Hurley; Fall Out Boy
Member of Fall Out Boy, professional bear snuggler, I don’t see a problem.
Rian Dawson; All Time Low
The fairest man in all the land… Too bad he’s taken by Cassadee Pope, not that I’m complaining because they are THE couple, but still. Who wouldn’t love to see that smile first thing when they wake up?
Pat Kirch; The Maine
I know I called Mike a nugget but LOOK AT PAT. The nuggiest nugget in the world. Sigh.
Tristan Evans; The Vamps
He’s british. *drops mic and walks out*
Chris Kamrada; There for Tomorrow
My ultimate drummer crush since 2009. Seriously. It’s pretty embarrassing.
Jess Bowen; The Summer Set
The HOTTEST girl in the scene and my inspiration. I’m so in love with her don’t get me started.
And last but certainly not least, Ashton Irwin; 5 Seconds of Summer
I could talk about Ashton for hours but I won’t. Just know he is an angel, literally. And I wouldn’t mind sinning with him if you know what I mean… ;)
Did you like this article? Have you been swayed by the magic of the drummer and their hotness? If so, check out the HBB store! There’s a shirt specifically for those in love with drummers….
Top 3 Artists: All Time Low, 5 Seconds of Summer, Taking Back Sunday
First Concert You Attended: Warped Tour 2009 I believe (this was the first show I went to and was let to run around with my best friend without adult supervision)
Random fact: When I’m not gushing over bands you can find me reading a YA novel or watching football (or stressing over school u kno).
Why do you like to blog?: I like blogging because it allows me to talk to people about what I love; music. As cliché as this sounds, it’s an escape from reality. It’s an escape from the endless amount of work I have to do for school and I love it. Yes, it is work, but it’s work that I love so I don’t consider that ‘work’ necessarily.
*fun anecdote: Laurel took this picture of me! (:

Five years ago might not seem like a long time ago, but in the music scene, that’s enough time for the scene to fade out or evolve. Five years ago was the prime for bands like All Time Low, Forever the Sickest Kids, Artist vs Poet, and various other bands. The scene hair was all anyone hoped to accomplish, hot topic was where you got all your favorite band tees, and warped tour couldn’t come fast enough. So today, I am going to take you down memory lane with some of my favorite bands (and their songs) of 2009. Enjoy.

As much as we don’t wanna admit it, summer is over. With that being said a huge swarm of teens are gearing up to head out into the next chapter of their lives; college. College means packing up your life at home and moving to a dorm or an apartment, which can be extremely frightening but also extremely exciting! Here’s my playlist to get you through the constant nagging of your parents to pack, the countless trips to walmart and target getting last minute items to decorate your room, and the drive to your new home!

The death of Robin Williams has been one of the most heart-breaking and publicized celebrity losses since the loss of Michael Jackson. Williams was a producer, a comedian, a genie, and an inspiration for not only aspiring actors but also kids just trying to get through their day-to-day life. Williams won’t ever go forgotten and his works in Mrs. Doubtfire, Aladdin, Dead Poets Society, and other countless films and cameos will only skyrocket even more than they already have.
Here a few of my favorite Robin Williams quotes that not only inspire me but also remind me what an amazing and incredible being Williams was.
(these are in no particular order):
- "No matter what people tell you, words and ideas can change the world."
- "You’re only given a little spark of madness. You mustn’t lose it."
- "Reality: What a concept!"
- "You have this idea that you’d better keep working otherwise people will forget. And that was dangerous."
- "When in doubt, go for the dick joke."
- "Never fight with an ugly person, they’ve got nothing to lose."
- "My battles with addiction definitely shaped how I am now. They really made me deeply appreciate human contact. And the value of friends and family, how precious that is."
- "People ask why I do children’s comedies. I’m happy being a Robert de Niro for nine-year-olds"
- "When I’m awake, I don’t want to go to sleep. I don’t want the hassle of turning the light off, putting my head down and then all the thoughts. I don’t want all those thoughts"
- "Comedy is acting out optimism"
"Genie, you’re free now."
