30 Artists, 30 Days Challenge

Hey, y'all! It's finally time to re-start my series! I have a One Day Tumblr Challenge post for you today. It's the 30 Artists 30 Days 1 Day Challenge. I had a lot of fun doing this, and surprisingly it wasn't terribly difficult for me to come up with this list. Let's get into this challenge, shall we?!

Pick any 30 of your favourite artists, in no particular order, and post the following info about one of them each day.
Artist:
Favourite Song(s):
Favourite Album:
Favourite Lyrics:
Seen them live?

1) Artist: McFly

Favourite Song(s): Lies, Sorry's Not Good Enough, Five Colours In Her Hair, That Girl, and Transylvania.

Favourite Album:

Favourite Lyrics: "Galaxy Defenders stay forever" (Star Girl) and "Another year over and we're still together. It's not always easy, but I'm here forever." (The Heart Never Lies)
They're really simple, but both of those quotes are typically used for McFly and their fanbase- McFly call their fans the Galaxy Defenders.
Seen them live? Unfortunately, no. They rarely tour America, and I don't have the time or the means to travel to Europe to see them play. Maybe one day...

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

2) Artist: All Time Low

Favourite Song(s): Weightless, Shameless, and Poppin' Champagne are some of my favorites, but I haven't really compiled an actual list.

Favourite Album:


Favourite Lyrics: "Manage me, I'm a mess. Turn a page, I'm a book, half unread", "Maybe it's not my weekend, but it's gonna be my year. And I'm so sick of watching while the minutes pass as I go nowhere. And this is my reaction to everything I fear, 'cause I've been going crazy, I don't wanna waste another minute here." (Weightless)

Seen them live? Once again, unfortunately no. But I plan to see them sometime while I'm in college!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

They say I'm just a stupid kid, a crazy radical, rock & roll is dead, I probably should've stayed in school.

Seen them live? Nope. I wish I would've seen him earlier in his career though, because he had coffee meetups before his concerts. But he's probably too big of a name for that anymore.

Whew, that was a lot of artists. I had a really tough time deciding which artists to use and which to not use. But I feel like I mostly got bands and singers that I really like and have listened to on repeat. I hope you enjoyed this post! Regular series posts are continuing soon, along with my Harry Potter discussion posts. Should be only a couple days before my Chamber of Secrets post! I also plan to get a series post up sometime this week as well!

Thanks for reading! If you like my posts, don't forget to subscribe/follow, since it lets me know that you're enjoying what I'm doing. See y'all in a few days!
