(Does anyone remember Pete Wentz’s amazing eyeliner? Because I sure do.)

“Shoot to Thrill” — AC/DC

“Blank Space” — Taylor Swift

(Additionally, if you’ve ever wanted to see Brendon Urie covered in spaghetti while playing this song on the piano, you should also watch this.)

Bonus: “Cray Button” — Family Force Five

This song is included exclusively because of lyrics such as “Got my cray pants on” and “I pledge allegiance to the U.S. cray.”
