One example of this from their album “Blurryface,” is a unique song called “Stressed Out.” This song identifies the stressful and insecure times they’ve had as kids. Josh and Tyler also have a style to the sounds and backgrounds of their songs.

In example, “Doubt” is a song written to show Tyler’s insecurities about his image, certainty, and maturity as he addresses in this track. Some may think other bands like Green Day, or Fall Out Boy are better alternative rock groups, but Twenty One Pilots are the best.

This problem was especially worse for immigrant workers as their belief in the so-called American dream has been worn down due to the misery they had to endure. Immigrant workers were limited of their freedom and constantly exploited due to the fact that they were working in hazardous working conditions, were living in deplorable conditions, and were being harassed under the intimidating power of corrupt politicians. Such miseries the immigrants had to face included the hazardous working conditions where they had to stay for long hours. There was no doubt that workers had either die or were injured as they worked in such environment. In Upton Sinclair’s The Jungle, the dangers of working conditions are emphasized through Jurgis’ incident at the meatpacking plant.

Another element in this novel is Melinda’s inner conflict, man vs. self. What Melinda has been through greatly affected her everyday life. She struggles with depression, dislikes her appearance, and feels ashamed of herself for something that isn 't her fault: “I want to confess everything, hand over the guilt and mistake and anger to someone else...even if I dump the memory, it will stay with me, staining me” (Anderson 51).
