We’ve all been there; cruising down the street in our ’64s, and next thing you know you’re stuck in a gridlock all thanks to some diabolical Lawrence Rd. construction. Too many times we’ve been made late for work, or had a traffic cone get in the way of our afternoon munchies. No more! It’s time to finally fight back, and what better way than with a killer fucking playlist by yours truly.
5.) “Tub Thumping” by Chumbawamba:
A classic straight out of the 90s that you can blast into the ear drums of those selfish construction workers while they take their time needlessly tearing up the poor innocent roads of Lawrence. Let them know that you will in fact get back up again when you get knocked down by their yearly insistence on upgrading the quality of driving around the town. Ugh, Bastards.
4.) “We’re Not Gonna Take It” by Twisted Sister:
What better way to release the pent-up aggression you have after switching from two lanes to one than by belting out these angry lyrics to the guy holding the “slow down” sign? This fine selection should be sung with friends so your combined rage for another road being ripped apart comes together in one harmonious screech at every unforgivable tear of cement.
3.) “Hit Me With Your Best Shot” by Pat Benatar:
The perfect song to fire away at the oppressive construction workers keeping you from your mid-day tea (yo, you just gotta check out that new bubble tea store on Mass. Street). Literally invite those nerds in helmets to hit you with their best shot, and show them who’s really the top dog in this torn up section of town.
2.) “Sabotage” by the Beastie Boys:
Nothing encompasses the feeling of defiance in the face of traffic and construction than literally anything by the Beastie Boys. Let those yellow and orange animals know their sabotaging your fine day with their incessant road repairs and improvements by joining in to the nonsensical scream at the end of the song.
1.) Just Yell “Bohemian Rhapsody”:
If all else fails, Freddie Mercury will not. It’s time to bring out the big guns against the menaces of the construction industry in the form of song and dance through this Queen classic. If this final act of rebellion won’t get through those blockheads destroying the road a glacial pace, then nothing will.
Whether you’re passing through or need to make a quick pit stop, let your defiance be known and heard by all in your quest to survive Lawrence Road construction.
