Make It Stop (September's Children) - Rise Against
It's always darkest just before the dawn.
So stay awake with me, let's prove them wrong.
Bullying is something we've all gone through and Rise Against acknowledge this - bullying has even prompted them to write a song to encourage youths to stand up to the taunts and be proud of themselves. This song is part of the online It Gets Better Project, where celebrities and other public figures advise the young not to give up and to accept themselves for who they are.
21 - Adele
Worldwide sales of 21 had exceeded eight million copies as of mid-July - a large portion from online music stores. With nearly five million fans on Adele's official Facebook page, she is definitely an artist to watch. Her sultry voice is a feast for the ears.
Rolling in the Deep, a beautiful song with a bluesy gospel disco tune, has been covered on the American hit show, Glee, and has gone viral with a plethora of fan videos to boot. Check her other songs out, too; she's not a one-hit wonder.
Rise of the Planet of the Apes
YouTube user sxephil has given this film his full endorsement, and his approval is a big deal - he is one of the most-subscribed YouTubers of all time. With well planned teasers, the film gained hype before it even hit theatres. Soon after sxephil uploaded his video, other vloggers followed suit and the film gained a lot of publicity online. Comments also show a positive reception for the stellar cast, especially the good-looking leading men.
