People Who Can't Parallel Park Are Feeling Seen Thanks To Olivia Rodrigo's New Album

It's a brutal world out there... especially for people trying to parallel park.

Olivia Rodrigo ignited social media on Friday morning when she released her debut album, "Sour," and had people screaming-singing along with her wildly relatable lyrics on Twitter, Instagram, TikTok, and elsewhere.

“I hope you're happy, but don't be happier,” “Don't you think I loved you too much to be used and discarded?” and “I guess that therapist I found for you, she really helped / Now you can be a better man for your brand-new girl,” the “High School Musical: The Musical” star has pretty much nailed the complicated emotions of being both a teenage girl and having feelings.

But one angsty song on the 18-year-old's album, the opener, aptly titled "brutal" in all lowercase despite packing an all-caps punch, has really struck a chord with fans.

In the second verse, she sings, "'cause I love people I don't like / And I hate every song I write / And I'm not cool, and I'm not smart / And I can't even parallel park."

You're not alone if you read that and thought, "It's me."

Aside from Rodrigo's driving prowess, fans noted that "brutal" captures "the mood of an entire generation," while "Sour" as a whole appeals to anyone who takes "longer than the relationship to get over the breakup."

Thinking about how spicy my Instagram captions would have been if Olivia Rodrigo's album had been released when I was 17 and discovered my EDM DJ boyfriend was sleeping with a mutual friend we met through — Cardi BTEC (@amelia_perrin) May 21, 2021
