10 Great Grad Songs / M. Pichola

10. Miley Cyrus – The Climb
Miley captures all the struggles and “ups” and “downs” of life.

9. Bon Jovi – Livin on a Prayer
High school is such a great time in your life when you are truly “livin’ on a prayer.”

8. Chumbawamba – Tubthumping
Who’s gonna keep you down? Not high school. See ya!

7. Matchbox Twenty – How Far We’ve Come
How far have you come since freshmen year? I bet you have grown a little in height. Maybe not. We don’t know. Still a great jam though.

6. Simple Minds- Don’t You (Forget About Me)
We hope you make your lasting mark on your school because the last thing you want to be is forgotten!

5. Third Eye Blind – Graduate
The title is all you need to know that this is a great graduation song. This song is one of Third Eye Blind’s best and has all the great components of a Third Eye Blind song, including great acoustic guitar and great lyrics.

4. Green Day – Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life)
Green Day at its best. Billie Joe Armstrong wishes that you had the time of your life. Feel free to listen to just about the most well known “good-bye” song.

3. Five for Fighting – 100 Years
Five for Fighting goes through the years of a man’s life talking about how he’s feeling at each stage. Some might call this song a “tear-jerker.”

2. John Mayer – No Such Thing
Welcome to the real world is right! We hope school prepared you well because the real world is a more challenging!

1. Cast of ‘Rent’ – Seasons Of Love
525,600 minutes in a year? That doesn’t sound right. Make the most of it.

1. Avicii- Levels
Malvern’s anthem – enough said.
