It’s been one of the craziest years in modern history. And our ‘songs of the year’ list is all over the place, well, because there are no rules anymore. We don’t have much advice for you, but we do know that music helps. Whatever you are going through, we hope this playlists provides some healing (or at least a good distraction).

Want to scream? Crank up the new AC/DC tune. Want to chill? Put on Khrungabin and just press play. Want to tell someone off? No one does it better than Fiona. Want to dance? Remi Wolf has got you, girl.
