DEGRASSI SPOILERS below if you haven't seen the new episode yet. But if you watched and need to know what songs were playing, the generous Degrassi Music Team is happy to share the info and the stories behind how the songs got there!

TeenNick's Degrassi

"Acid Rain" by The Tanuki Project
Anya decides to try some cocaine. Check the Degrassi page for a sample.
"Other than the obvious title and lyrics representing Anya's downward spiral, the beat of this tune is what sold us for the placement. This was the first time we were in this club; we had to establish a more mature sound, and The Tanuki Project was a great fit."

"Sound The Alarm" by Shapes of Race Cars
The volleyball game. Check the Degrassi page for a sample.
"We loved a bunch of songs on Shapes of Race Cars' album, so we picked this one for this scene, and it fit real good. The pounding chorus is just so much fun and that's all we needed for this scene."

"Get Out Of My Way" by Brooke Rose
Goodbye bedbugs.
"This was a quirky placement, because the song is so serious but the scene is so light and almost... fun? Well, bedbugs aren't fun, but this "goodbye bedbugs" song makes it seem pretty effortless to get rid of them. Anyone who's had bedbugs wishes it were as easy as putting on a Brooke Rose song."

"Desire" by Tara Lett
Anya struts in the club and dances with a random.
"Heart-pounding, slow-motion, definitive gaze, yeah, something is about to happen. We won't know until the next episode, but this song leads us to believe Anya's spiral is not slowing down... it's speeding up. "
