10. Lisa Prank, 'Adult Teen'

The never-ending story of punk girls and their mad love for Blink-182. Lisa Prank's tunes might sound like they come straight from the Enema of the State playbook, but they kick in and stick through months of heavy boombox rotation. She bangs her guitar and pours her heart out about troublesome menfolk ("Your long hair hides a waste of time") and her troublesome self. I guess this is semi-quasi-growing up. Preach, sister: "If you're sad, you're listening to the wrong song/And if you hear your mind, the music's just not loud enough."
