These 4 Songs Would Totally Be The Mean Girls' Jams
If The Plastics were in high school today, these would be their anthems.
Saturday, April 19th isn't just another run-of-the-mill day of the week: it's when the classic teen comedy Mean Girls first was released to theatres back in 2004, and the entire Internet is celebrating the 10th anniversary of the quotable flick. We don't know why it's stood the test of time for this long, but seeing as it's definitely one of our favorite movies, we're not ones to ask questions. Except for one: what would the girls in The Plastics (the infamous high school Mean Girl clique) be listening to if they were in high school today? We racked our brains, scoured our Top 100 chart, and came up with these 4 jams. So fetch.
As the daughter of the man who invented Toaster Strudles, Gretchen Wieners gets a little uptight sometimes. Especially when she doesn't receive a Candy Gram. So it only makes sense to imagine the Gretchen of today coming home from a terrible day at school and blasting Frozen's "Let It Go". We can imagine her letting loose and belting along with Idina Menzel after a rough day ruling the school.
Seriously, can you think of a happier person than Mean Girls' Karen Smith? They say that ignorance is bliss, and seeing as Karen is, well, a little dim, she's constantly smiling and daydreaming in her own world. Cue Pharrell's "Happy", which we could definitely see her busting out at the school talent show. In a skimpy costume. Maybe dressed as a sassy Minion?
When Lindsay Lohan's character, Cady Heron, first comes to her new high school and meets The Plastics, there's no doubt in our minds that she was totally thinking the same lyrics that Lorde penned in her smash single "Royals". That kind of lux just ain't for us, we crave a different kind of buzz is a line we think Cady would share on Facebook or tweet from her Twitter profile. After all, she's just a regular girl (who did get swept up into fame for a short second, but learned her lesson in the end).
This buzzworthy tune would totally be at the top of the Queen of The Plastics' playlist. The entire intro to "#SELFIE" is basically Regina George's entire Mean Girls script. When Jason was at the table / I kept on seeing him look at me while he was with that other girl / Do you think he was just doing that to make me jealous? Just replace Jason with Aaron Samuels and boom. This would be Regina's modern-day jam, fo sho.
