Stressed Out: The Atlantic Examines an Anthem of Millennial Anxiety.

The Atlantic‘s Megan Garber and Conor Friedersdorf sit down to discuss the current billboard hit from Twenty One Pilots and it’s cultural implications for a generation steeped in Starbucks and smart phones.

Conor Friedersdorf: Would you trade the ups-and-downs of adult life for a soothing lullaby in your childhood bedroom? That’s the comforting fantasy that Twenty One Pilots conjure in “Stressed Out.” When I first heard the song, listening to KROQ on the 405 Freeway in Los Angeles, I thought, watch out Taylor Swift, ​this​ is the Millennial anthem.

Garber follows up with how the tune reminded her of a hit I remember well from my Rap City days; Skee-lo’s I wish. It’s an interesting conversation. Read the rest of it on The Alantic.
