Hey Millennial, What 00s Song Is Your Anthem?

Advertisement

The aughts were full of bangers. The early parts of the decade saw late 90s pop solo acts and former Mickey Mouse Club members Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, and Justin Timberlake come into their own. Established artists like Madonna, the Queen of reinvention, added new chapters to their discographies. And R&B and hip hop acquired a contemporary sound and dominated the Billboard charts circa 2004. Usher, Beyoncé, Rihanna, Kanye West, Eminem, and The Black Eyed Peas reached global audiences and achieved massive success. Electronic music found its way into many of the most popular tracks, and autotune became a standout feature of the time. This was also the era of Latin superstars Enrique Iglesias, Shakira, and J Lo, and pop punk and alternative rock gave us such earworms as Blink 182's "All the Small Things," Maroon 5's "This Love," No Doubt's "It's My Life," and Coldplay's "Clocks." This quiz is for all the millennials and noughties music lovers out there. Crank up your nostalgic playlists and get ready to figure out which melodic noughties blast from the past is a sonic and thematic fit for your unique personality.

The best one-hit wonders of the noughties

The post-Y2K period was full of memorable songs from artists that seemingly fell off the map, never to be heard from again, at least not at scale. 2000s kids will be familiar with anthems like "Who Let the Dogs Out?" and yet have no clue what the Baha Men look like. There was also "I Believe in a Thing Called Love" by The Darkness, which played on repeat on MTV, as did James Blunt's "You're Beautiful." And songs such as The Calling's "Wherever You Will Go," The Click Five's "Just the Girl," Blu Cantrell's "Breathe," and Wheatus's "Teenage Dirtbag" ruled the airwaves until they walked gently into that good night. If you're currently on campus, give Asher Roth's "I Love College" a listen; if you have a crush on your friend's mother, you'll find lots of relatable content on Fountains of Wayne's "Stacy's Mom," and if you think you might be queer, t.a.T.u's "All the Things She Said" is angsty and just plain epic. You're welcome.

How to Play?

Our personality quizzes are set up a little differently than your basic trivia quiz, but you’ve probably seen their kind around. Rather than having to choose the right answer from a list of multiple choice options, in this case, there is no “right answer”! (Two plus two will always be four, but every Golden Girls character is equally awesome.)

So, stop stressing. Just click on the answer that suits you best, and enjoy the ride. These quizzes are just for fun but who knows – you might just learn something about yourself along the way!
