They’re fist in the air, sing along anthems, that aren’t just good pump up songs, they’re the perfect tracks to expedite your transition into a new life of hanging out on the couch and eating cereal for lunch. Unless you’ve got a new job lined up, in which case bully for you. The songs on this list are the perfect tunes for stealing your office printer and partying your way out of the office.
