Ride (Twenty One Pilots)

I heard this song several times today during my almost 700 mile ride home, and can’t get it out of my mind.  It’s incredibly addictive and I think it’s a perfect driving song too.

I think this is one of the best songs played on mainstream pop radio I’ve heard in a LONG time–both lyrically and musically it stands above most mainstream music today.   It sounds more like indie or alternative.  I’m not even sure how you’d classify this. Is it indie rock? Indie pop?  Hip hop? Reggae?  EDM?  1980s or 1990s retro?  Something else entirely?    I’m not sure but it seems to have elements of all those genres and probably a couple others too.  Somehow it manages not to sound chaotic and disjointed–all the various genres flow together well.

  1. I stole this from Wikipedia and I’m a HUGE TOP fan. Glad you like the song!

    “People typically have trouble affiliating the band to a specific genre to describe them, since they bridge so many. However, many fans (and themselves to a certain degree) have labeled their genre as “Schizophrenic pop” (also known as Schizoid pop), a technically unofficial subgenre of pop.”
