Many of us have spent more time than we would care to admit on TikTok, especially during this time of self-isolation due to coronavirus. However, it’s a great platform one can use to share and create some laughs. You even have the chance to use whatever music you want in the background of your videos.

Here are 10 of our favorite videos from TikTok that are hilarious and use alternative songs, such as old-school Simple Plan all the way to present-day Billie Eilish, to create something truly entertaining that’ll distract you from your worries.

1. Waterparks – “I Miss Having Sex But At Least I Don’t Wanna Die Anymore”

@realnoahluke##collegedropout ##school ##college ##collegelife ##riseandshine ##fyp ##4u ##tastesdifferent ##TheReplay ##littlemonsters ##noahluke♬ I Miss Having Sex But At Least I Don’t Wanna Die Anymore – Waterparks

This Gen Z humor is dark but hilarious, and it’s even better when they’re fans of Waterparks. “I Miss Having Sex But At Least I Don’t Wanna Die Anymore” from last year’s FANDOM went viral on TikTok and is now the band’s No. 1 song on Spotify

2. Machine Gun Kelly – “I Think I’m OKAY” (featuring YUNGBLUD and Travis Barker)

 

@morgandrinkscoffee👋👋👋 ##barista ##baristalife ##foryoupage ##foryou ##fyp♬ I Think I’m OKAY – Machine Gun Kelly

This video is a “funny because it’s true” masterpiece for anyone in the service industry. “I Think I’m OKAY” is another scene song that hit viral status in the TikTok community. In particular, users love MGK’s lyric, “Watch me take a good thing and fuck it all up in one night.”

3. My Chemical Romance – “Welcome To The Black Parade”

 

@sunshine.stables🐶🐢🤣 ##PetParade ##LifeIsARunway ##RescuedDogs ##Tortoise ##HorseRanch♬ Welcome to the Black Parade – My Chemical Romance

Welcome to the dog and tortoise parade in this special case. Even these cute little creatures can’t resist the quintessential My Chemical Romance track and emo anthem with that classic G note. 

4. twenty one pilots – “My Blood”

 

@ukulele_boi_2002##twentyonepilots##tylerjoseph##joshdun##tøp##fyp##foryoupage I was bored don’t judge♬ My Blood – Twenty One Pilots

Only the Clique will find this all too relatable. Several twenty one pilots tracks can be found on videos across the platform, but this one is the most fitting. Many of us could see them for the 100th time in a row and still say, “Stay with me!” 

5. Panic! At The Disco – “I Write Sins Not Tragedies”

 

@carcinogenni have no friends ##fyp ##foryou ##foryoupage ##traveldiaries ##area51 ##timetravel ##panicatthedisco ##like♬ I Write Sins Not Tragedies – Panic! At The Disco

You can be a Panic! At The Disco fan except during your spelling tests. If you had a cool emo teacher, they might actually give you extra credit for such a niche joke. 

6. Billie Eilish – “bad guy”

 

@theninjasbrotherWho can relate?! 😂 ##foryou ##foryoupage ##tiktok ##meme ##comedy ##funny ##testus1 ##fyp ##duet ##awesome ##a♬ bad guy – Billie Eilish

It’s hard to admit, but many of us reposted Instagrams and sent chain mail to avoid “ghosts” and “serial killers.” Years later, still nothing has happened. Coincidence or did sending those off actually work? Much to think about. 

7. Disturbed – “Down With The Sickness”

 

@samwick923♬ Down with the Sickness – Disturbed

 

This little baby is already incredibly cultured with fantastic music taste. Their first words better be “Ah, shit, oh, ah, ah, ah, ah.” All the other kids stuck on ABCs will certainly be jealous. 

8. Slipknot – “Psychosocial”

 

@z1n1thSo found out Raiden likes Slipknot 💕 ##birdlove ##petlife ##cutie ##fyp ##pets♬ Psychosocial – Slipknot

Did you know that birds are the best at headbanging? Surely even Slipknot’s Corey Taylor would be impressed by this little dude. If we made a list of metal animals, this bird would be at the top. 

9. Christina Perri – “Human”

 

@mattomar_I’m only human 😔😔😔😔 ##fyp ##foryou ##foryoypage♬ human – christina perri

Christina Perri’s “Human” is a current meme on TikTok. Users are sharing how they’re trying to be strong in the face of problems, but they are “only human.” In this video, the temptation is simply irresistible. 

10. Simple Plan – “I’m Just A Kid”

 

@pipersniper13Father and son time in the water forever ##imjustakid ##fyp ##fatherson♬ I’m Just a Kid – Simple Plan

One of 2020’s biggest viral TikTok trends started when families were isolating at home and looked through old family photo books, then recreated childhood memories set to the track of Simple Plan’s “I’m Just A Kid.” Some things never change, right dad?
