Everyone loves a good underdog story; someone triumphing over the seemingly impossible obstacles life presents. There’s something hopeful and beautiful about it all.

The world needs underdogs, if not just to serve as inspiration; to show us that anything is possible, even in the most unlikely of circumstances. It’s that characteristic that has made characters in literature, movies, and television as iconic and beloved as they are (think Oliver Twist, or even Harry Potter).

And of course, every good underdog story needs an epic soundtrack. So here’s a playlist for all of you underdogs, whether these become your anthems or not:

1. “Keep On Keepin’ On” – Travie McCoy ft. Brendon Urie (P!@TD)

2. “Pompeii” – Bastille

3. “Scotty Doesn’t Know” – Lustra (it seems like the anti-underdog song, but think about it: Scotty is rooted for, and this is a very catchy track).

4. “I Believe In You” – Tyler Hilton

5. “Life Is Looking Up” – Forgive Durden

6. “The Reckless & The Brave” – All Time Low

7. “Mean” – Artist Vs. Poet (cover of Taylor Swift’s song)
