So you're gearing up for a round of Power Hour, huh? We've got a soundtrack to the semi-insane sacred rite you're about to embark upon, a go-to party playlist swivels in a tight 60 minutes from metal to hip-hop to punk to pop and everything in between. It'll keep you pumped and partying.

Please drink responsibly. Barfing at brunch isn't great.

1 / 17

The Replacements, "Beer for Breakfast"

Your first shots are the "breakfast" of power hour.

2 / 17

Thunderbitch, "Eastside Party"

An ode to raging from Thunderbitch, the rocking-ass side-project of Alabama Shakes' Brittany Howard.

3 / 17

Nicki Minaj feat. Beyoncé, "Feeling Myself"

We're guessing if you're Power Hour–ing, you're feeling yourself.

4 / 17

Against Me!, "Drinking with the Jocks"

Whether you're drinking with actual jocks or laughing at the notion, Laura Jane Grace's fire is unbeatable.

5 / 17

Girl Talk, "Here's the Thing"

Girl Talk albums have been the soundtrack to partying for a decade now. This one will kick the early part of your Power Hour into a new gear.

6 / 17

Andrew W.K., "We Want Fun"

Andrew W.K.'s I Get Wet is a standalone party beast—but this song, which arrived in tandem with the Jackass movie back in 2002, is a lesser-known bit of perfection.

7 / 17

Rihanna, "Bitch Better Have My Money"

More like "Bitch Better Have My Natty."

8 / 17

Pantera, "Mouth for War"

Every millisecond of Pantera's catalog is drenched in booze. Air guitar your ass off for these four very special minutes.

9 / 17

Angel Haze, "Babe Ruthless"

Angel Haze bangers are scientifically proven to turn you up to 11.

10 / 17

Miley Cyrus, "Fuckin Fucked Up"

At least once every 15 minutes, you've gotta have something perfectly thematically appropriate.

11 / 17

Disclosure feat. the Weeknd, "Nocturnal"

The Weeknd (king of getting faded) plus the make-you-move expert Disclosure, plus a title likely related to your current situation.

12 / 17

Tame Impala, "Mind Mischief"

Tame Impala knows a thing or two about getting altered, and "Mind Mischief" will get your brain doing backflips.

13 / 17

Drake & Future, "Jumpman"


14 / 17

Beyoncé feat. Jay Z, "Drunk in Love"

"This [playlist] is the shit, if I do say so myself, if I do say so myself."

15 / 17

Alkaline Trio, "Take Lots With Alcohol"

Tough to pick from Alkaline Trio's dozens of songs dedicated to the art of drinking, but this From Here to Infirmary cut will do the trick. (Also try "Jaked on Green Beers" and "My Friend Peter.")

16 / 17

Blink-182, "What's My Age Again?"

Because, at this point in the hour, there's a good chance you won't remember your actual age. And there's a 100 percent chance you'll need those nostalgia-imbued riffs to carry you to the finish line.

17 / 17

Kanye West, "Power"

November 21: King Kendrick

Kendrick Lamar graces the cover of Variety magazine, where he discusses his praised career, slew of hits, the country's political state and more. “America will survive once it recognizes the position it’s in, and the trials that it’s facing. Once people stop being nonchalant to it and recognize it, that’s when," he explains. "When it’s not something that’s just swept under the rug because we’re the quote-unquote ‘greatest country in the world.’”
