If You Don't Recognize Any Of These 35 Things, Then You Weren't A Teen In 1999
♫I just wanna go back, back to 1999!♫
Thinking you were punk 'cause you owned this Blink-182 album...
...and because you listened to Limp Bizkit:
Being completely addicted to Buffy the Vampire Slayer...
...and Angel (and also arguing with your friends over which series was better):
Yelling at the TV when people answered the question wrong on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?:
Making sure you tuned into TRL every afternoon to see where your favorite video landed:
Sorta being in shock at all the raunchiness in American Pie...
...and all the overtly sexual stuff in Cruel Intentions:
Running home after school to immediately jump on AIM to talk with your friends:
Feeling so satisfied any time you had to clean your mouse:
Downloading every single song you ever heard from Napster — even if it did take almost an entire day to get one song:
Wanting all the songs used in Gap's "Everyone in..." commercials:
Loving everything about Old Navy's commercials:
Having your mind absolutely blown when you saw The Matrix for the first time:
Also having your mind completely blown by the plot twist in the Sixth Sense — then having to fight the urge to not spoil it for anyone who hadn't seen it:
Hearing Christina Aguilera's "Genie In A Bottle"...
...and Ricky Martin's "Livin' la Vida Loca" EVERYWHERE:
Hearing people talk about how The Sopranos was the most genius show ever...
...and how Sex and the City was the most real show:
Thinking you were the shiz 'cause you owned a boombox like this:
Begging your parents for an iMac 'cause it was like the coolest designed thing you had ever laid your eyes on:
Also begging your parents for a cell phone (even though you knew you couldn't really talk on it since it came with like barely any monthly minutes):
Bawling your eyes out for the first time at a Pixar movie, during the "When She Loved Me" scene in Toy Story 2:
Being a little confused and thinking that The Blair Witch Project might be real:
Singing along to "No Scrubs" and feeling like it was your anthem (LOL):
Getting excited every time the new issue of Teen People came in the mail:
At some point trying to do the hand choreo to Backstreet Boy's "I Want It That Way" (in the privacy of your own room of course):
Thinking Mariah Carey's video for "Heartbreaker" was genius (which it was and is):
Wanting a robot dog 'cause it seemed like the future:
Treating your Beanie Baby collection with care 'cause you thought it would be worth sooooo much money in the future:
Arguing over who was better; NYSNC or Backstreet Boys:
Doing your research for a report using Encarta:
Renting a movie meant actually calling the cable company to order Pay-Per-View...
...or making a trip down to Blockbuster Video:
And finally, seeing and hearing Y2K warnings everywhere and being a low-key freaked out about it:
Take a trip down memory lane that’ll make you feel nostalgia AF
