Click to Listen to Ashlyne Huff's "White Flag"

A young-love melodrama in three-and-a-half minutes, courtesy of Nashville-bred pop singer Ashlyne Huff: Boy meets girl; Girl isn't into boy; Boy stalks girl; Girl "throws her white flag in the air" and decides boy isn't so bad after all. The pounding synths sound suspiciously like "California Gurls," but with Huff tossing out hooks in her Miley-esque Tennessee drawl, it's no biggie.

"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."
