After slaving away at homework, quizzes, tests and gym class since September — even as early as August for some of you! — it’s finally time to ditch school
forever for the summer! Everyone starts counting down for the last day of school on, well, the first day of school, really, and that countdown is over. Complete. Dunzo. Need some jams for the special occasion? Check out our Playlist of the Week packed full of songs for the first day of school!
1. Glee cast, “School’s Out”
Alice Cooper originally made this song popular in 1972 (yeah, a dude named Alice), but Puck, played by Mark Salling, totally nailed it in the season three finale of Glee. This song is the ultimate last day of school anthem.
2. Gwen Stefani , “The Sweet Escape”
School is out and it’s (finally) time to escape until fall!
3. N’Sync, “Bye Bye Bye”
The last day of school is all about saying bye bye bye to so many people and things: your friends, your teachers (the ones you actually like) and, most importantly your homework. Nothing like a good N’Sync throwback to say “Adios!” to another school year.
4. Wiz Khalifa, “Work Hard, Play Hard”
We procrastinate work our butts off for months upon months, taking test after test. Well, all that work has finally paid off. Play time!
5. High School Musical 2, “What Time Is It?”
Everyone relates to that all-too-familiar scene from HSM 2 where everyone watches the clock to count down to summer vacay. Don’t lie. You’ve done it.
6. One Direction, “Up All Night”
Bed times? Forget ‘em! It’s summer; time to dance around with your BFFs all night and celebrate getting through another year.
7. Naked Brothers Band, “I Don’t Wanna Go to School”
We couldn’t have said it better ourselves, NBB. No. More. School. (JK. Stay in school, kids).
8. P!nk, “Get the Party Started”
You got it, P!nk. Time to paaaaaaaar-tay!
9. Cody Simpson, “Got Me Good”
If Cody’s new song and video won’t get you pumped for a fun, beachy summer, nothing will. NOTHING.
10. Miley Cyrus, “Breakout”
Breakout from all those boring Chem classes and jam out to Miley’s classic tune!
Which end-of-school song is your fave? Any we missed? What are you going to miss most about school this summer?
