8. “Amy” by Green Day

Both Psychedelic and groovy. Jonny Marrero crafts a glitchy groove about meeting the right person at the wrong time. “Amy Stay Away” warns the aforementioned Amy to stay away from him due to his current broken state. The lyrics “Amy stay away, don’t think that i’m this way” accentuates this point.
