16 Things That Were Cool In 2006 That Need To Make A Comeback In 2016

Chris Pratt needs to get naked again.

1. Really embarrassing email addresses.

Getting an email from your boss, tastybitch_69@hotmail.com, would definitely liven up your work day.

2. Proper camera selfies.

Prediction that these will actually become ironically cool again after there's a backlash to front camera selfies.

3. Flip phones – especially this one.

Yeah sure apps are pretty cool, but are they as cool as the satisfying sound the Motorola Razr made when you flipped it shut after a call? Adele knows they aren't.

4. Cadbury Snowflake.

Anyone who doesn't think a chocolate bar can be cool obviously never got to eat a Cadbury Snowflake. Getting rid of them was probably the biggest crime of the '00s.

5. The O.C. (and also naked Chris Pratt).

Warner Bros

One thing we've lacked in 2015, and pretty much since the '00s really, are really good teen dramas. Also Chris Pratt would look even better in the nude now then he did back then.

6. MySpace.

We miss having a social network where you can passively aggressively tell one of your friends they're being a dick by bumping them down your top 8.

7. Everyone wearing sweatsuits.

Yeah OK they look pretty awful, but they were comfy as hell, and if everyone's wearing them then it's fine, right?

8. Paris, Nicole, and The Simple Life.

20th Century Fox

If we're still going to have trashy reality shows in 2016, we want it to be this trashy reality show.

9. Pop punk being mainstream and everywhere.

Pop punk will ~nEveR diE~, but we do miss it being all over the radio, and having Blink-182, Green Day, and Sum 41 release great new music all the time. It's time we put pop punk back where it belongs.

10. Belly buttons.

What did they ever do wrong?

11. Pokémon games on Game Boy Colour.

These games already made their first comeback around 2006, but it's time they came back again. They should make a brand new Pokémon game, but only with the original 151, and only released on Game Boy Colour so we can all play it on our old consoles.

12. Hannah Montana.

Just because it'd be funny to watch present day Miley playing the innocent teen star again.

13. Big Brother being as incredible as Big Brother 7.

Channel 4

It had Nikki and Pete, Grace and Mikey, and the best Big Brother rant of all time.

14. Inflatable furniture.

Because you can drop food all over it or take it outside and it doesn't even matter.

15. Reading all your celebrity gossip in Mizz magazine, so you knew it was true.

It's time we got the old Linsday back.
