Top 10 Songs for a GVSU Playlist


We’ve all come up with some sort of playlist for our life. We have playlists for driving, showering, walking to class, even pre-work out, so why not a playlist that totally encompasses what it’s like to attend GV from start to finish! We’ve compiled a list of the top 10 songs to celebrate (or not) the journey of going to school at GVSU.


10.) “Last Resort” – Papa Roach:

If this was your first choice in school, we understand (kind of). For the rest of you who aren’t lying to yourself about the ultimate choice of your impending future, this song will start the playlist. GVSU is the last resort, cutting your life into pieces of disappointment.


9.) “I Love College” – Asher Roth:

You’re bound to come across a fun time during the first bit of college that makes you think it’s awesome: the parties, the doubling up on condoms during sex, and barely avoiding a MIP really gets the adrenaline pumping. But just like the song and casual sex, this feeling of love lasts roughly four minutes and five seconds.

8.) “I Wanna Go Home” – Sandy Cheeks:

Although you’re not stuck in an air bubble at the bottom on the sea, it sure as hell feels like it sometimes. All you want to do is go home, eat some BBQ, and move on to bigger and better things that being stuck in the valley.


7.) “Work Bitch” – Britney Spears:

At some point between your first semester and your last semester, you decide that graduating might be a good idea. You need to work, bitch, if you ever really want to accomplish anything in life. This includes looking hot and being rich of course. That paper T. Haas gives you is your golden ticket to a brighter future.


6.) “Stressed Out” – Twenty One Pilots:

All we want to do is turn back the clock, forget about students loans, and cry on our mom’s shoulder. College has ripped you a new one and everyone’s telling you that you need the degree to make money, even though your dream is to simply hug puppies on the daily. It’s just all too much all of the time and never ceases.




5.) “Marvin Gaye” – Charlie Puth:

Between studying for classes (or not) and trying to find time to bathe, you’re totally looking for somebody to hook up with. Problem is, it’s GV and everybody is in a long-term relationship. Unfortunately, there won’t be any getting it on for you.




4.) “No One’s Gonna Love You” – Band of Horses:

The title of the song says it all. Marvin Gaye didn’t have your back. Just give up.


3.) “Never Song” – Whitest Kids You Know:

This song teaches you how to be respectful and make crystal meth, the perfect way to reenact your Breaking Bad fantasies. Now you can completely do away with the last semester stress of college, or even offer a new avenue for employment when you don’t actually graduate.




2.) “Hallelujah” – Panic! At the Disco:

The last of finals week has come and gone, and you’re just waiting for your grades so you can see how terribly you did. Say your prayers, kid, say your prayers.


1.) “Take Me to Church” – Hozier:

Allendale and Grand Rapids are directly within the Bible Belt of Michigan, which means you have more than likely been confronted with some Bible-Thumpers walking around campus. Whether it’s Campus Ministry trying to get you to go to Guatamala or those crazy Baptisits damning you to hell, they really just want to take you to church and convert you to the cult.


There you have it. A GVSU-inspired playlist perfect for any party, walk, or naptime ritual.
