TikTok already feels like one big joke that anyone outside of Gen-Z doesn't understand -- and it doesn't help that it's largely built around music that only the teens are listening to. Originating from the lip-syncing app musical. The success of a TikTok song is a bit confounding since "old" songs do resurface on the app, but its pull on what's trending in music is undeniable, making charting hits out of even obscure releases that the kids are playing over their brief videos. Like all music, not every TikTok song is amazing, but there are a handful of gems on the app that are definitely worth listening to in full. Here are the best of those TikTok songs you've heard parts of, but should definitely listen to the whole thing. Emo band Beach Bunny recently went from a Chicago DIY scene staple to one of the best up-and-coming groups today, and frontwoman Lili Trifilio's earnest lyrics about the doldrums of young womanhood are part of why they're so great. Songs like "Prom Queen," about how much beauty standards suck, are extremely relatable, so it's no surprise that it took off on TikTok with videos that interpret the lyrics and encourage viewers to be comfortable with themselves. The song's got a thoughtful message, even as it somberly recognizes how difficult it is not to compare ourselves to others, and those hooks are things of pop-punk dreams. She makes woozy, catchy songs that are touched by a hint of ska, and it's a good thing the TikTok kids caught wind of her stateside. Joined by her hazy bedroom artist contemporary Gus Dapperton , her song "Supalonely" is indie pop magic, singing about how she's a "lonely bitch" while poking fun at the very trope.
