Ender- Anthem For the Underdog by 12 Stones

Concrete Detail 1: The song “Anthem For the Underdog”, by 12 stones relates to Ender Wiggin because of the lyrics “You try so hard to bring me down, You can't break the broken, You still don't seem to understand, It's your turn to see just, How it feels to be me, How it feels to be knocked down”. 12 Stone’s lyrics are saying that even though people are trying to bring them down, they are already broken and they want others to see how they feel.

Commentary 2: 12 Stone’s song, “Anthem For the Underdog”, is a good theme song for Ender Wiggin because when the other toon leaders in battle school thought that they had Ender beat, they were wrong.
