25 Songs Every Teenage Girl Should Hear

Or just everyone should hear really. I've had a super (un)productive day of compiling all the songs I wish I'd known about when I was 12. Of course, that's impossible, some of them weren't even released when I was 12. That's entirely not the point.

25. Rebel Girl - Bikini Kill
24. Express Yourself - Madonna
23. Don't Marry Her - The Beautiful South
22. Trick Me - Kelis
21. Edge of Seventeen - Stevie Nicks
20. Miss World - Hole
19. Cherrybomb - Bratmobile (or the original by The Runaways)
18. Why Do You Love Me? - Garbage
17. If It Makes You Happy - Sheryl Crow
16. Close Call - Rilo Kiley
15. Maps - Yeah Yeah Yeahs
14. Love is a Battlefield - Pat Benetar
13. Combat Baby - Metric
12. Pot Kettle Black - Tilly & the Wall
11. What's Mine is Yours - Sleater-Kinney
10. Hit Em Up Style - Blu Cantrell
9. Lovefool - The Cardigans
 8. Pretend We're Dead - L7
7. Lust In The Movies - The Long Blondes
6.Typical Girls - The Slits
5. Who The Fuck? - PJ Harvey
3. One Way or Another - Blondie
2. Ladykillers - Lush
1.  No Scrubs - TLC

and those that narrowly missed the cut: Wuthering Heights - Kate Bush/Wannabe - Spice Girls/We Are Family - Sister Sledge (and the Babes in Toyland cover) - Kiss That Grrl - Kate Nash / Single Ladies - Beyonce / Fuck Me Pumps - Amy Winehouse / What The Hell - Avril Lavigne / Awful - Hole / Material Girl - Madonna / All of Christina Aguilera's 'Stripped'/ Denis - Blondie / Devils' Spoke - Laura Marling / No Fucking War- Seven Year Bitch / Dear Prudence - Siouxsie and the Banshees /  You Belong With Me - Taylor Swift / School Uniform - The Pipettes

there's no number 4. i was testing you.
