Peel Me Off This Velcro Seat: 15 Songs About Being Bored
Summer vacation is a wonderful thing, but once you reach the end of the internet, the prospect of going back to school starts to look good.
Fall semester may be right around the corner, but there's still plenty of time to watch reruns and unlock all those stubborn Xbox achievements.
Savor the feeling of sitting on your ass doing nothing all day with this list of songs about boredom and laziness.
Green Day- Longview
You know you're in trouble when masturbation is getting old and nothing good is on TV.
Violent Femmes- Blister in the Sun
If you don't know what this song's about, big hands, stained sheets, and the surrounding songs are pretty big hints.
Billy Idol- Dancing With Myself
Billy knows what's up.
Nerf Herder- Welcome to my World
Semi-obscure Star Wars references are always a good thing. "Jagermeister and Captain Crunch, nicotine and the Brady Bunch, I'm building a boat out of pudding cups." His shirt is starting to stink, and he doesn't give a damn what you think.
Best Coast- Goodbye
When TV and weed fail to entertain, a talking cat may be your only hope.
If your cat can't talk, you might as well envy it."Look at my cat, why can't I live like that? All other animals except us do nothing else but eat and shit."
Bruno Mars- The Lazy Song
Why answer the phone, start P90X, or pursue a college degree when you can do it tomorrow?
Matt & Kim- I Wanna
It's cool, go ahead and sleep through the weekend.
The Lonely Island- Lazy Sunday
Who doesn't love sleeping in and going to the movies?
Iggy Pop- I'm Bored
Sometimes you feel like the chairman of the bored.
Wavves- So Bored
Why do chores when you can do nothing instead?
The Lawrence Arms- Hey, What Time is 'Pensacola: Wings of Gold' on Anyway?
One only can sit and stare for so long until they plead, "Shut me up and take me somewhere, I'm dying to leave."
NOFX- Thank God It's Monday
Every day is a holiday when you don't have a job.
The Offspring- Why Don't You Get a Job?
Yes, I know, what's the fun in this song without the music video. I couldn't find it on YouTube, so here's a live performance.
"Well I guess it ain't easy doing nothing at all"
Asher Roth- I Love College
All that hard work in college makes us appreciate the finer things in life. Remember, "time isn't wasted when you're getting wasted."
