Your preteen years are an emotional time, and way back before Twitter and Facebook and Snapchat there weren’t quite so many ways to air all that emotion out. It was pretty much yelling at your parents, whispering to your friends late at night when they slept over, and listening to devastatingly sad popular music.
Not all popular music is devastatingly sad though – sometimes it’s also raunchy as f*ck. Those are pretty much the two poles though, and either way you can’t get by without a few scars.
But we’re all just fine these days, right?
