BTS Album Covers: Introduction
If you’re new to the ARMY and want to learn more about all of BTS’ songs and albums, we’re here to help! Here is the complete discography of BTS, as well as the meaning and inspiration behind the singles!
BTS debuted their first single on June 12, 2013, and have since released numerous songs and albums. It’s especially impressive when you consider how involved all of the BTS members are in the music-making process, from helping to write lyrics to even producing some tracks.
Since their debut album, BTS has amassed an impressive discography that includes both Korean and Japanese releases.
You can follow the members’ lives as they grew up and learned to deal with their ever-changing fame through all of BTS’ albums. You can also hear their life together, as they channel all of life’s challenges into their music.
Through their music, the members have become open books, discussing topics such as growing up, pressures they’ve faced, mental health struggles, love and loss.
BTS members who have worked as producers and songwriters include RM (Kim Namjoon), Suga (Min Yoongi), and J-Hope (Jung Hoseok), though other members have also contributed to songs. They’ve also produced other artists’ work.
BTS Album Covers: Creative Touch
“No More Dream” was BTS’ first single, and the lyrics were written by BTS members RM, Suga, and J-Hope, as well as their producers.
The lyrics to the single reveal a recurring theme in the group’s early days: young people being pushed to go to school to fulfil the dreams of others rather than their own.
J-Hope once stated that the lyrics deal with “the anxiety that comes from the hazy realities we face and that we should try to overcome such anxieties.”
“We Are Bulletproof Pt.2” was the album’s second single. The lyrics discuss the difficulties the group had already faced, such as being looked down upon by others, but triumphing over all of the attacks through hard work and dedication.
In a video review, Suga stated that they wanted to convey how hard they had worked during their years of training and that they were confident with their debut.
“N.O,” the title track of O!RUL8,2?, is about the pressure on students to become “studying machines,” even if it means sacrificing their own dreams and happiness. It is similar to their first single “No More Dream,” which is about the pressure on students to become “studying machines,” even if it means sacrificing their own dreams and happiness.
This theme is also evident in the music video for “N.O,” in which BTS members play students who are fed pills in a classroom setting to make them complacent about their studies.
“Attack on Bangtan” (also known as “The Rise of Bangtan”) did not receive its own official music video, but it became a popular track from the album and was used during album promotion.
The song has a more upbeat and fun beat than their previous singles, and the lyrics warn other idols about the band’s impending rise as they use their fire to captivate fans.
