24 Songs That Came Out 10 Years Ago Because You're As Old AF

You've known all the words to Mr. Brightside for *10* years.

If someone was to ask you for the name of a song that came out 10 years ago, you'd probably guesstimate something like Aqua's 'Barbie Girl', Beyoncé's 'Crazy In Love' or The Beatles or something.

No, no, and obviously not. A lot more time has passed than you think - 2006 was a year in which My Chemical Romance was flowing through our veins, and 'Crazy Frog' was still ringing in our ears from the year before. Want proof?

Take a deep breath and be prepared to feel old. 

1. 'Welcome To The Black Parade' - My Chemical Romance

Death and existence is deep and stuff.

2. 'When The Sun Goes Down' - Arctic Monkeys

Before Alex Turner had contracted the tragic disease that is being a tw*t.

3. 'So Sick' - Ne-Yo

Did he ever change his answering machine?

4. 'Hips Don't Lie' - Shakira ft. Wyclef Jean

And is still the greatest song recorded on the planet.

5. 'Smile' - Lily Allen

The only woman to have ever eaten a bar of chocolate in that manner.

6. 'Deja Vu' - Beyoncé ft. Jay-Z

Back when we could first smell the Beyoncé-Jay-Z pheremones.

7. 'I Don't Feel Like Dancin'' - Scissor Sisters

We're still waiting to be invited to one of their parties.

8. 'The Rose' - Westlife

Yes, the Westlife heart was still beating.

9. 'America' - Razorlight

Back when America seemed like an exotic, surreal place. Or is that now?

10. 'Put Your Hands Up For Detroit' - Fedde Le Grand

What's going on in the video? We would like a 1,000 word essay to explain the butts, please.

11. 'Dani California' - Red Hot Chili Peppers

And they continue to be immortal now, as immortal things tend to do.

11. 'Ain't No Other Man' - Christina Aguilera

It's been so long since the 00s that you've forgotten speakeasies were still alive and well back then.

12.  'SexyBack' - Justin Timberlake ft. Timbaland

Not totally sure what JT is trying to achieve in this video (other than bringing sexy back, obvs), but it looks important.

13. 'Chasing Cars' - Snow Patrol

All the feels.

14. 'Who Knew' -  P!nk 

Those 00s skirts.

15. 'I Wish I Was A Punk Rocker' - Sandi Thom

Here we are, feeling nostalgic for the 00s, as Sandi feels nostalgic for the 70s in the 00s. Spooky.

16. 'Nasty Girl' - The Notorious B.I.G 

Guys where's our invite? Guys?

17. 'No Tomorrow' - Orson

Red Bull: The cocaine of the 00s.

18. 'Naive' - The Kooks

How we longed to play The Kooks on our very own iPod Nanos.

Gee, thanks for making the British weather seem sh*t right now.

Still playing (the same songs) in an O2 Academy near you.

In case you aren't convinced that this is old, yes, that is Mischa Barton from The O.C.

Ruining breasts for everyone for the next five years.

Oh 2006 Kanye, if only you could see 2016 Kanye.

24. 'Breaking Free' from High School Musical

The only true anthem of the 00s.
