Live every week like it's Tiny Shark Week
Between the season premiere of Breaking Bad and the debut of Netflix's Orange Is the New Black, there already are plenty of reasons to stay glued to the television, but Discovery Channel did everyone one better by kicking off Shark Week on Monday.

We really wouldn't blame you if you don't get anything else done this week. But commercials can get pretty boring, so here are five songs to get you stoked about Shark Week between partially fictionalized documentaries.

Gallows- In the Belly of a Shark
So here I lie in the belly of a shark
So fucking cold and so fucking dark
So here I lie in the belly of a shark
And how the fuck did I get this far?

This seems like a pretty accurate assessment of what someone would think as they wait to be digested by a great white . . . after a series of "oh god, oh god, I'm going to die, oh fuck(s)," of course.

The singer is pretty pissed, so much so that he's encouraging someone 40 miles away to jump in the water with an open wound.

Yo La Tengo -- Season of the Shark
The Zombies' "Time of the Season" is pretty representative of the summer, giving Yo La Tengo a week to shine and share the spotlight with Jaws. Once the guy from Gallows finishes freaking out, he can take solace in Ira Kaplan assuring us to not be afraid.
