OK, let's be real — the early 2000s was a great time for music. Nelly Furtado was like a bird, Beyoncé was crazy in love, and Missy Elliott was getting her freak on. Oh yeah, and Britney hadn't shaved her head yet. Depending on your age, these songs can make you nostalgic for everything from car rides to elementary school to dancing on your wedding day. But for many of us, these tunes take us back to the sweaty hookups of high school and college nights out (and in). Who hasn't made out to "Dirrty" on the dance floor? So whether you're getting ready to go out or throwing a party of your own, blast this playlist until you blow out your speakers to get nostalgic about the wild nights of your past!
