60 Songs From The Early 2000s Millennial Women Still Know ALL The Words To

Let's be honest: We all miss the 2000s. This decade was primetime for us babies of the 1990s.

We were living our best lives. It was the decade of wild fashion, nearly-perfect television on Disney Channel, and celebrity gossip that fueled lunch table debates. All of these helped to define the decade. However, the one thing everyone remembers from this time was music. The songs of the 2000s still live on today. Whenever they come on, you know who grew up in the 2000s because you can hear us scream the lyrics and watch us dance like we're in the music videos.

Here are all of the best songs from every college kid's favorite decade: the 2000s.

1. "The Real Slim Shady"- Eminem, 2000

This song is 18 years old and yet people still stand up and make a joke when they hear "Will the real Slim Shady please stand up?"

2."Thnks fr th Mmrs"- Fall Out Boy, 2007

11 years later and I'm still confused by the missing letters in the title...?

3. "Before He Cheats"- Carrie Underwood, 2005

7th grade Maria thought slashing tires was the epitome of cool because of this song

4. "Hollaback Girl"- Gwen Stefani, 2004

I still use this song to spell bananas, B-A-N-A-N-A-S.

5. "She Will Be Loved"- Maroon 5, 2002

Every girl's go-to song for their first broken heart

6. "S.O.S"- Jonas Brothers, 2007

"Cause hugs are overrated, just FYI" deserved a Grammy, in my opinion

7. "Sk8er Boi"- Avril Lavigne, 2002

This song kicked off my short lived skateboarder phase

8. "Party in the U.S.A"- Miley Cyrus, 2009

This was the anthem for every middle school girl for years to come

This song is great but also beyond awkward.

10. "Lose Yourself"- Eminem, 2002

If you don't understand the reference "mom's spaghetti", we can't be friends

11."You Belong With Me"- Taylor Swift, 2008

Throwback to sweet, curly-haired Taylor. It's amazing what 10 years can do

12. "Mr. Brightside"- The Killers, 2004

Is there anyone who doesn't scream along to the beginning of this song?

13. "Hey Ya!"- Outkast, 2003

Do kids today know what a Polaroid picture is? and the reason you shake it?

14. "Low"- Flo Rida, 2007

This song came out and everyone needed apple bottom jeans

I can only spell glamorous because of this song

J. Lo can do no wrong

17. "Bye Bye Bye"- NSYNC, 2000

This will go down in history as the most insane yet brilliant music video ever

18. "Best I Ever Had"- Drake, 2009

"You can have my heart or we can share it like the last slice" is still the most romantic rap line ever

19. "Drops of Jupiter"- Train, 2001

My favorite song of all time

Way before Beyonce was Ms. Carter

36. "I Kissed A Girl"- Katy Perry, 2008

44. "Bad Day"- Daniel Powter, 2005

This song was impossible to escape in 2005 and that still applies today

The only version of this song we need is Damien at the talent show from Mean Girls

I've never met a person who doesn't scream "Float on, Alright" when this song is on

I've come to the conclusion that Mariah doesn't age... Can I get your secrets, Mimi?

Justin ditching the ramen noodle hair was the best decision of his career

52. "My Prerogative"- Britney Spears, 2004
