My Theme song would be "Best Of You" - Foo Fighters

I picked this song because the meaning behind it is perfect for what im trying to accomplish. Dave Grohl's (lead singer) meaning behind the song is to break away from those who confine you. To not let anything hold you back or get in your way of achieving your ultimate goal.
