The first few days back to school are chaotic free-for-alls. Get lost on campus, hover over maps to find your way and awkwardly find your seat in class. Nothing is expected of you just yet, so revel in the brief window of freedom. Soon your walks across campus will all become part of the monotony. These are the golden days!


Get your school supplies, your Costco size of mac n cheese, your class lists and say goodbye to the summer.

“Back to School (Mini Maggit)”

If you’re not too pleased to be back, crank up some Deftones. An oldie, but a goodie this track is overflowing with angst and pain.

“Judy is a Punk”

Never fear; The Ramones will add the extra pep in your step that is crucial when cruising back to school.

The White Stripes

“Black Math”

If you’re lucky enough to take math in college, you better love it.

Born Ruffians

“Kurt Vonnegut”

Hello, babies. Welcome to ASU. It's hot in the summer and warm in the winter. It's round and wet and crowded. At the outside, babies, you've got a couple years here. There's only one rule that I know of, babies: “Goddamn it, you've got to be kind.”

Vampire Weekend


Vampire Weekend and college kids go together like peanut butter and jam but with cafeteria Cap’n Crunch in the middle.

Asher Roth

“I Love College”

Oh boy.


“Bicycle Race”

Holy pedestrian traffic jam, Batman. If you’re on the road, watch out. If you’re on the sidewalk, watch out. If you’re outside in general, watch out.

Two Door Cinema Club

“Sleep Alone”

Once you’ve settled in your new routine, kick back and start thinking about when you’ll be able to squeeze in naps.

Surfer Blood

“Take It Easy”

This is only the beginning of the semester so remember to chill out and enjoy the ride.
