15 Songs From The 2000s We Will Never Get Over

Known by its questionable fashion trends and, mostly, emo songs, the 2000's were remarkable years for many people.

The top hits from that decade can still be heard on most radio stations and, probably, on some playlist on your phones.

Here are 15 songs from the 2000s that you’ll never forget!

  1. 1. Oops… I did it again! – Britney Spears

    This hit was released on March 2000. "Oops… I did it again" got Britney nominated for the Grammy for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance during its 2001 ceremony (Britney was only 19 back then).

  2. 2. In the End – Linkin Park

    Released in October 2001 in their album Hybrid Theory, “In the End” is one of Linkin Park most famous songs.

    Fun fact: Chester Bennington, the band's late lead vocalist, didn’t like the song at first and didn’t want it to be released.

  3. 3. A Thousand Miles – Vanessa Carlton

    A song immortalized by the movie “White Chicks” (2004), Vanessa Carlton dropped her debut single on February 12, 2002.

  4. 4. She Will Be Loved – Maroon 5

    Released with the debut album of the band in 2002, She Will Be Loved was announced as Maroon 5’s third single in 2004. According to Yahoo Music, the single peaked at No. 5 in the United States and by December 2012 had sold more than 2,722,000 digital downloads.

  5. 5. The Scientist – Coldplay

    November 4, 2002 was the date Coldplay released the song in Europe, being part of their second album, A Rush of Blood to the Head.

    The song is one of the band’s most known songs, along with Yellow, Fix You and Viva La Vida, being played over almost 663 million times on Spotify.

    Fun fact: The music video is played backwards. However, since it was shot normal direction, Chris Martin, the lead singer, had to learn the whole song in reverse, so it could create that “effect” for the video.

  6. 6. Toxic – Britney Spears

    We all know that the 2000s were Britney’s golden years. Released in 2003, this song got the singer her first Grammy, for Best Dance Recording.

    Fun fact: The Toxic music video was banished by MTV. Why? The video was released around the same time that Janet Jackson flashed her boob on live television during the Super Bowl concert, so highly sexual videos and "indecent" material were off the TVs for a while.

  7. 7. Boulevard of Broken Dreams – Green Day

    Released in November 2004, this song might be one of the many emo anthems of the 2000s. The song is the continuation of Holiday, so in most music platforms you can find the “Holiday/Boulevard of Broken Dreams” version, with the two songs together in the same track.

  8. 8. I Write Sins Not Tragedies – Panic! At the Disco

    Panic! At the Disco’s most remarkable song was released on February 27, 2005 in Panic!’s first album, A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out. When played on most radio stations in the United States, the song had to be edited because of the constant “swearing” in the chorus.

    Fun fact: Panic! at the Disco had a $10,000 budget to record the album, and they couldn't afford to pay musicians to record it. So, they recruited middle school band students to play part of the instrumentation. For this song they recorded a teenage girl playing cello, building the famous notes on the beginning of I Write Sins Not Tragedies.

  9. 9. Too Little Too Late – JoJo

    Making JoJo a one-hit wonder, Too Little Too Late became a global hit as it was released in August 2006.

    Fun fact: The songwriters thought about offering the song to the American girl group The Pussycat Dolls!

  10. 10. Welcome to The Black Parade – My Chemical Romance

    My Chemical Romance was, without a doubt, the biggest emo band ever. Being the first single from the album The Black Parade, Welcome to The Black Parade was released on September 11, 2006.

    In 2017, MTV recognized the music video as the “Greatest Music Video of the Century”.

  11. 11. Beautiful Girls – Sean Kingston

    Beautiful Girls is the debut single by Sean Kingston, who was 16-years old when the song was released (May 2007).

    Since the chorus had the word “suicide” repeatedly playing, some radio stations stopped playing it while others just edited the word to “in denial”.

    Fun fact: The song was based around the bassline riff from Ben E King’s Stand by Me and it was written in a couple of hours by Sean Kingston.

  12. 12. Umbrella – Rihanna

    One of Rihanna’s top hits, Umbrella was released on early 2007. The song was written by Jay-Z, along with four other songwriters (Tricky Stewart, The-Dream and Kuk Harrell).

    Fun fact: originally written with Britney Spears in mind, but her label rejected it.

  13. 13. Viva La Vida – Coldplay

    Reminding people of the French Revolution because of its music video, Viva La Vida was released in May 2008.

    Coldplay was accused innumerous times of plagiarizing Viva La Vida along the years, but none of the complaints were proven real.

  14. 14. Party in the U.S.A. - Miley Cyrus

    Party in the U.S.A. was released on August 2009, being part of Miley’s first EP, The Time of Our Lives.

    Fun fact:  Jessie J co-wrote this song with the intention of being her own, but decided to sacrifice it for Miley, since she thought it was not edgy enough for her.

  15. 15. You Belong with Me – Taylor Swift

    Swift was inspired to write the song (that was released April 2009) after hearing her friend arguing with his girlfriend over the phone.

    You Belong with Me won Favorite song at the 2010 Kids' Choice Awards and was nominated at the 2010 Grammy Awards for Song of the Year, Record of the Year, and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance.

After this whole nostalgic moment, you may now lip sync to this song all you want.
