There's nothing in the world less awkward than memories of your middle school dance. With colorful braces, acne, and 98 percent of the girls taller than the boys, it was a rough time for everyone. The times may have been hard, but if you're a millennial, the music at your middle school dance was most definitely poppin'. Here are 20 of the most lit songs from that middle school dance.
