Playlist: F*ck Humility

This is a playlist for those times when you need a chorus of outrageously, outlandishly confident lady-types in your ears. I use it as my “fake it ’til you make it” pump up music. Because fuck modesty, y’all. Unless your name is Kanye West, I can pretty much guarantee you there are still people in the world who need to hear more about how great you are.

Blast it.

  1. I feel like I really need this today. Like, today is a day when I’m gonna get shit done.

    • You’re going to blaze through your to do list today. I feel very confident.

  2. Two more really terrible stupid songs to add, both of which I heard on Degrassi, but they’re so fitting.

    “Because I’m Awesome” – The Dollyrots

    “The Derriere Song” – Hipjoint

  3. This may be my favorite ever. I feel like retitling it “self-empowerment” or “positive thinking,” blasting it, and claiming it’s “therapy homework.”

  4. I really needed this! Feeling like I skipped a few baby dyke steps and music always helps life me up. Appreciated xo

  5. Laura, the fact that you placed Alaska Thunderfuck on this playlist and you are a lady in STEM is proof that we should be friends IMMEDIATELY.

  6. Omg this is wonderful. My other favorite “I am great and I’m gonna let the whole world know” song is Wave Ya Hand (not that you don’t have enough Nicki Minaj on there already, but more can never hurt, right?)

    • No, just Spotify. I didn’t have all the tracks on my computer. But you’re welcome to make it in 8tracks and share it with the world!

    • if anyone ends up putting this playlist on 8tracks could you please post a link to it here because it looks life changing

  7. i must know what you searched for on shutterstock to yield this magnificent feature image.

  8. i clicked on this playlist because i thought it was titled “fuck humanity” and i was pretty on board with that sentiment. this seems pretty good too though, maybe tomorrow i’ll be in the mood for fucking humility.

  9. Can I add ‘Move’ and ‘Salute’ by Little Mix? Alsoo ‘Reflection’ and ‘BO$$’ by Fifth Harmony (plus everyone should check out their cover of Uptown Funk). Gotta love girl bands.

    P.S. also ‘Popular’ by The Veronicas. Is it sad that I have over 100 songs in a playlist like this already?
