What To Choose As A "My Anthem" Song On Tinder To Show Off Your Sense Of Humor

Life is short. Your Tinder profile is probably even shorter. So why waste an opportunity to choose a funny "My Anthem" song on Tinder? Hook a Tinder match right off the bat by showing off your sparkling wit and pitch-perfect pop culture references. Let me explain.

For the uninitiated, Tinder added a feature last year called "My Anthem" that lets users add any Spotify song to their dating app profile. The widget is intended to show off your taste in music and act as a conversation starter, making it ultra easy to swipe left on someone who has a genuine love of Nickelback (yikes), swipe right on the Frank Ocean fan (yesssss), and strike up a conversation with your match about why you think Carly Rae Jepsen is so criminally under-appreciated (because she so seriously is!).

There are certainly benefits to setting your anthem to your current favorite song, whatever that may be. I mean, there's no point in choosing a really obscure rock song as your anthem if you don't know the words and you exclusively sing Britney Spears at karaoke (hello, it's me). Sure, that song might impress a suitor or two, but it's meaningless if the song doesn't mean anything to you.

But what if you used your anthem to showcase something else? Your sense of humor instead of your musical preferences? It might wind up being the most entertaining part of your profile.

I rounded up 36 hilarious "My Anthem" songs so you don't have to face a minute of cuffing season without at least a few options for cuffs. Just beware — you might get even more matches than usual.
