We all want to look dope as we walk to class. Shoulders set back, head held to the sky, cool guy side smirk on our lips, and dark sunglasses that reflect the faces of passersby. The reality of this is usually us dragging ourselves to class in an oversized t-shirt, dying under the weight of our backpack, and wearing sunglasses hoping it hides the fact that we stayed up until 4am finishing a project.
Do not fret, because while you may not look like you’ve got all the swagger in the world while you’re walking, we’ve got the song list to make you feel like it. You won’t need to fake it until you make it here people, with these tunes you’re going to want to conquer the world (and maybe that 10am final while you’re at it).
1. The Imperial March
If Darth Vader can listen to this tune while looking awesome so can you.
2. Shake It Off – Taylor Swift
Shake off the worries and the stress of finals like Taylor and walk to class with confidence!
3. Are You Gonna Be My Girl – Jet
The deep bass will have you shaking your head and bopping along to the song as you’re walking. Don’t worry you’ll look cool, we swear!
4. Shoot to Thrill – AC/DC
If Iron Man can use it as his hype there’s no reason you can’t either! Put on your shades and project your inner Tony Stark.
5. Gives You Hell – All American Rejects
Jump back to your middle school days and feel the hype you did as an eighth grader who walks like they own the world (and all the ice cream in the fridge).
6. Formation – Beyoncé
If you can channel 1/10 of Beyoncé’s energy you can walk to class with all the swagger in the world! Feeling like you own the world is all you need to do it!
7. Bad Reputation – Joan Jett & The Blackhearts
We all wish we could channel Peggy Olson in our lives, just try for one ounce of her swagger and you’re golden. Don’t care what anyone else thinks as you walk by, all you need to stare straight and be confident in your walk!
8. Juice – Lizzo
Strong women walk with confidence, and girl you’re strong. This is a bop that will have you walking with swagger and dancing your way across the Union while you’re at it!
9. Let Me Live/Let Me Die – Des Rocs
We love a good guitar start to any song, play this one as you make that cross-campus trip to the Environmental Science Building and watch as the students part a path for you.
10. Fast In My Car – Paramore
Paramore never disappoints with the hype songs, and this one is no different. Get your squad together and walk across campus to this beat, your coolness will not go unnoticed.
Don’t stop at these ten, we’ve got the full playlist available to you on our Spotify–make sure to check it out! Don’t forget to drop a comment and let us know what your hype song is!
