Little known fact about me (for most of you anyway): Inside, I’m a tatted up, hair-dyed, hard rockin’ fangirl. On the outside, I’m much more presentable, with my one tattoo on my hip where no one sees it. I’m thinking about changing that though. But for now, I’ll have to settle for expressing myself through my top 13 songs of the year.

These are the songs I listened on repeat and sang my heart out to in the privacy of my own car. Most of them are loud, angry, passionate, and f-ing brilliant. (Insert parental advisory here.) And I heart them all so damn much for what they make me feel.
