45 Throwback Songs You Probably Forgot Existed
8tracks radio

We all scroll through the radio stations in the car every once in a while, whether its because we lost signal to our favorite one or we are just bored with the same ol' songs every day. You know when you're going through and you hear a song where you're just like "I forgot this existed!" and before you know it, you're singing every word? Yeah, me too. Like, 95% of the time. If you're like me and LOVE some good throwback music, here's a list of songs from every genre that have gotten lost in time, but never truly forgotten (all gifs from Giphy).

1. "Big Pimpin'" - Jay-Z ft. UGK

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F09%2F27%2F636105399261626463-1617060639_Big%2520Pimpin.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=370&h=3dc81a6f675bb84133490da0c1846c9d4ca30bd2d484a1a23d99d22ed7298a0a&size=980x&c=357911016 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F09%252F27%252F636105399261626463-1617060639_Big%252520Pimpin.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D370%26h%3D3dc81a6f675bb84133490da0c1846c9d4ca30bd2d484a1a23d99d22ed7298a0a%26size%3D980x%26c%3D357911016%22%7D" expand=1]

Jay-Z gives us a ballad about, you guessed it, pimpin' big in NYC. Jay-Z's rhymes paired with that catchy beat is just bound to get stuck in your head for the rest of the night.

2. "Mr. Brightside" - The Killers

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F09%2F27%2F6361054002735992161120256428_Mr%2520Brightside.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=258&h=c402d711b3eb3a902aa6f46321d46b76621b1dd041531eed7f4d3d69f8b2c369&size=980x&c=199631394 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F09%252F27%252F6361054002735992161120256428_Mr%252520Brightside.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D258%26h%3Dc402d711b3eb3a902aa6f46321d46b76621b1dd041531eed7f4d3d69f8b2c369%26size%3D980x%26c%3D199631394%22%7D" expand=1]

If you say that you don't know any of the words to this song, you're the worst kind of person... a liar. This classic has left stamps of its lyrics on 99% of the population, and has a forever spot in my soul.

3. "Lose Yourself" - Eminem

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F09%2F27%2F636105400472981925740976614_Lose%2520Yourse.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=560&h=96f3d2dcceca13f6b034adc18684492c2241cb0e585634d8941ea0bef61fbf48&size=980x&c=90311203 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F09%252F27%252F636105400472981925740976614_Lose%252520Yourse.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D560%26h%3D96f3d2dcceca13f6b034adc18684492c2241cb0e585634d8941ea0bef61fbf48%26size%3D980x%26c%3D90311203%22%7D" expand=1]

This song always leaves me feeling like I could sign a record deal and launch my career as a rap/hip-hop legend... and craving spaghetti.

A ballad for the ages that brings the overly patriotic American badass out of all of us.

This song makes me want to walk down a lonely road, preferably a dark one, and reflect on all of my life choices. Nevertheless, it's still a fantastic song.

7. "My Boo" - Ghost Town DJs

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F09%2F27%2F6361054028826093641915054768_my%2520boo.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=833&h=031b9af2ca59d68ccc27cd5920b6f24e29810c3989335d2871f3e12469505743&size=980x&c=2998032366 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F09%252F27%252F6361054028826093641915054768_my%252520boo.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D833%26h%3D031b9af2ca59d68ccc27cd5920b6f24e29810c3989335d2871f3e12469505743%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2998032366%22%7D" expand=1]

The "running man" has brought this one back, and I couldn't be happier.

8. "I Write Sins Not Tragedies" - Panic! At The Disco

If your friends don't "chime in" by screaming the chorus at the top of their lungs in the car with you, it's time to leave them there and find new friends. Also, did anyone ever tell the groom what his bride has been up to?

9. "Semi-Charmed Life" - Third Eye Blind

Nicki Minaj sampled this in her song "Anaconda" in 2014. Take a minute to realize that some people have heard that, but not the REAL jam that the sample came from. Now, cry.

The real question is which version is better: Lil Jon's or Sandra Bullock's?

You've heard the song, but have you ever really listened to or analyzed the lyrics that you knew by heart by the age of 10? Do it.

15. "Check Yes Or No" - George Strait

You don't have to be a country lover to know this song. My hardcore rocker/screamo friend even knows the chorus. Don't try and tell me you don't. I don't like liars.

If "Whoa, Nelly!" wasn't the album of your childhood, you may want to have a conversation with your parents. Another great product from this album was "Turn Off The Light", both of which were top 10 hits.

Even though I can't hear this song without seeing Channing Tatum's half naked body in my mind, it's still one of my favorite songs to hear. Instant day brightener when I hear that funky beat at the beginning.
