9. “MMMBop” by Hanson
I know what you’re thinking: How could this song with the most innocuous lyrics in the world be dark? Well, it’s not quite as simple as you might think. If you listen to the verses in between the “MMMBops,” you’ll hear the teens talking about the brevity of friendships and how very few of them actually last. Not the darkest song, but pretty somber stuff for a tween.
