Olivia Rodrigo's courage resonates with Twitter's millennials

Olivia Rodrigo may belong to Generation Z, but her music is clearly designed for millennials. On September 8, the Grammy winner released her highly anticipated second album , GUTS , which has already brought Twitter to teenage angst again. The album is led by singles "Vampire," a brutal ode to a fame-hungry ex, and "Bad idea huh?" ”, a funnier riff about hooking up with an ex. No matter what your mood is, GUTS is guaranteed to put you in a good mood.

GUTS expands on her nostalgic 2000s pop-rock sound and devastating ballads on her debut album SOUR , with the 20-year-old songwriter penning some of her most devastating and confessional lyrics to date, From insecurities about "Bardot's incarnation" of womanhood to "Lacy," all the coming-of-age monoliths you might expect in "The Ballad of the Homeschooled Girl."

In a press release, Rodrigo explained that she wrote GUTS about what she was going through during a very transitional phase in her 20s. "For me, this album is about growing pains and trying to figure out who I am at this stage in my life," she said. "I feel like I grew up 10 years between the ages of 18 and 20 - it was a period of awkwardness and change. I think it's just a natural part of growing up, and hopefully this album reflects that."

The album reflects not only the thoughts of Generation Z, but also the thoughts of fans older than Rodrigo. After their first listen, millennials took to Twitter to share how influenced they were by GUTS , joking that they were too old to be Rodrigo fans when her real target audience was "teenagers."

Twitter users of all ages praised Rodrigo's writing skills and relatability of his lyrics, using a variety of memes to describe how tracks like "Lace" and "Balad for a Homeschooled Girl" made them feel.

Millennials also praised Rodrigo for mastering the nostalgic pop-punk sounds they grew up with, such as "Bring Him Back!" An angsty romantic comedy.

Whether you want to cry or be angry this weekend, GUTS is the perfect soundtrack for all ages.
