"Little Things" as written by Benji Madden and Joel Madden....
Yeah, this song is dedicated to every kid who ever got picked last in gym class (yeah, 1999)
This is for you
To every kid who never had a date to no school dance (2000 eternal)
This is for you
To everyone who's ever been called a freak (come with meeeee)
Here we, here we go
What? (y'all know what I'm talking about, y'all know what I'm saying)

Like the time in school when we got free lunch and the cool kids beat us up (reduced lunch!)
And the rich kids had convertibles and we had to ride the bus (fifty-five)
Like the time we made the baseball team, but they still laughed at us (we still suck)
Like the time that girl broke up with me cause I wasn't cool enough
Trick!

Things...
The little things they always hang around
The little things they try to break me down
The little things they just won't go away
The little things made me who I am today
You want to hate me know
But I won't stop know, cause I can't stop now

What? Come on. Ungh.
Here we go

Like the time mom went to that institute cause she was breaking down (I just can't take it!)
Like the car we had that wouldn't start, we had to walk to get around (Can I get a ride?)
And that same year on Christmas Eve, Dad went to the store (uh, I'll see you guys later)
We checked his room, his things were gone
We didn't see him no more
Dick!

Things...
The little things they always hang around
The little things they try to break me down
The little things they just won't go away
The little things made me who I am today
You want to hate me know
But I won't stop know, cause I can't stop now
It always seems those little things they take the biggest part of me...

And I know that those little things they make the biggest part of me break down
I'm breaking down
Break down
Gotta maintain

    General CommentI personally think that this song is pretty cool. I also just want everyone to know that I listen to punk/emo/people who call themselves punk/country/pop/oldies/alternative/default/ and everything inbetween.... I personally don't see the REASON of putting music into groups.... I say you put music in your own group... The songs you like and the songs you don't like. I think sometimes people don't like a certain genre of music because it's not "cool" or it's not "uncool." Ya'll need to think about that.... sometimes people try to be so uncool and punk that they don't know who they want to be. If you want to wear camo and tube socks WEAR IT and the next day if you feel like a low cut shirt and tommy jeans WEAR IT! Be YOU... don't let yourself be catagorized. Some people who claim they are punk say they are punk because they are different. In some cases that is true but if you really think about it.... all punkers are pretty much the same. So really they aren't that different. They all like the same music wear the same clothes. I have lots of punk friends and they are cool, I also have friends who still listen to NSYNC but do I not hang out with them because of the music they like? No... Yes Sex Pistols/Anti Flag/The Dead Kennedys and cool but I think Kenny Chesney/John Mayer/and Sugar Ray are cool too. My friends don't always agree but that's their oppinion. If you guys like GC... thats cool... it's STILL cool if you like punk or whatever else you are listening to. Be yourself.... listen to what you WANT to listen to. Not what your friends listen to..... not whats "cool" or "uncool" or "punk" come on guys.... in the end does it even matter? ugh.... That's the most I've ever said.... haha... peace

    General CommentI hate to argue..but all of this pisses me off. Punk is dead. Punk music isn't classified by how it's sung...it's the ideas behind it. I mean i like GC and all...but i think they try too hard to be "the punk band" and sound like it. I am getting so sick of people defying natural order just to be "cool". I always tried to be different cause i hate conformity, and everyone else just picks it up as a fad and dresses "punk", and as alfred e. neuman said, "it's getting harder and harder to tell non-conformists apart." which is very true. There will come a day when all the non-conformists will be dressing normal and preps will be dressing "punk". That's all i hae to say about that.

    General Commentthis is one of the best punk songs ever, definatley the best since Dammit by Blink 182. Its lyrics are really good and it brings back a lot of memories of my first couple weeks at highschool when this song first came out, ahhhhhhhhh
