If you don't scream them... do they even exist?
It is a truth universally acknowledged that any song with lyrics that need to be shouted, will evaporate into thin air if one does not participate in the shouty parts. Did you know that? Basically, every time you don't shout the lyrics to a shouty song - one dies. It's true. You better share this list to save a life, tbh!
1) Fall Out Boy - This Ain't A Scene, It's An Arms Race
All the boys who the dance floor didn't love and all the girls whose lips couldn't move fast enough... SHOUT these lyrics until your lungs give out ;)

2) Kelly Clarkson - Since You've Been Gone
Kelly Clarkson's screamy banger is PERFECT for those you who aren't blessed with the technical karaoke skills of... Adele, for example. You can't have a shouty playlist without topping it off with some Kelly.
