Don't deny it, you listened to almost all of these on your bus ride home.

50 Throwback Songs For Your Late-2000s Middle School Nostalgia Playlist

For most people in college or recently graduated, middle school can be as far as 10 years ago. The times have changed, the music has definitely changed, but the love of your favorite throwback hits will always stay the same. Although it's been quite a while since you listened to these songs with your iPod nano or shuffle (if you were lucky) on the ride home from school, it's never too late to enjoy some of your own middle school classics.

For me, middle school brought some amazing artists now like Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Kesha, and Miley Cyrus and any song that was remotely catchy. So the next time you're in the car or on the bus, throw on these songs for a blast from the past.
