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

Nerf Herder- Welcome To My World by Awesomefossum

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.

Lagwagon- Lazy

Lagwagon- Lazy by Awesomefossum

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

Wavves - So Bored by saidydoll

Why do chores when you can do nothing instead?

The Lawrence Arms- Hey, What Time is 'Pensacola: Wings of Gold' on Anyway?

The Lawrence Arms- Hey, What Time is 'Pensacola Wings of Gold' On Anyway by Awesomefossum

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

NOFX- Thank God It's Monday by Awesomefossum

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

Asher roth-i love college by monkeyinapopesuit

All that hard work in college makes us appreciate the finer things in life. Remember, "time isn't wasted when you're getting wasted."
