"I got the swag and it's pumpin' out my ovaries," Kreayshawn noted on 2011's viral smash "Gucci Gucci." The Oakland MC's debut explores her skill at giving hormonally bonkers post-Odd Future shock rap a bratty, ashtray-Madonna spin. Over high-end electro bloop, she brags about pawing strippers and sipping purple with 2 Chainz. And woe be to anyone who does her wrong: "I should key your car, but I'd rather slap your mom/Only a bitch could give birth to such a fuckin' dog," she muses on "Left Ey3," who'd be pleased to see her scorched-earth legacy is in such competent hands.

    “Santa Monica”

    Everclear | 1996

    After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
