The 1-800's song Lovewave is a very synthy and gives off a very retro vibe, which is all the rage right now on TikTok and Instagram.

The song is most used as a recap to some of your favorite moments:

Lovewave is a great song to show off your editing skills, and to show off your morning routines or your favorite coffee.

Cigarettes After Sex's song "Apocalypse" has also been used on TikTok, but it's used in a much more personal trend.

The song is very moody and very dream-like, check it out below:

The trend used with the song is meant to remind you to be kind to yourself; when you talk bad about yourself, you're also talking bad about younger you.

The trend makes you change your perspective, and change how you talk about yourself.

Also, it will probably make you cry a little bit!

There are thousands of videos that use both songs, and with thousands more coming each day, these El Paso bands are getting more recognition- as they should!
