25 Songs From 2008 That’ll Make You Say “How The Fuck Were These All Released In The Same Year?!?!”

I don't care how much you hate Taylor Swift, "Love Story" will ALWAYS be a banger.

Posted on

1. "Hot N Cold" - Katy Perry

Capitol

OK, I knew this song was old... but a whole 10 years?! I mean, sure, it was no "California Gurls", but man did it fucking bang in '08.

2. "Pocketful Of Sunshine" - Natasha Bedingfield

Epic

I'm sorry, but 100% no. I swear I could've sworn this song was released waaaay before "Hot N Cold" was. And I really refuse to believe otherwise.

3. "American Boy" - Estelle ft. Kanye West

Atlantic

Like, you really mean to tell me the BANGER "American Boy" came out in the SAME year as "Pocketful Of Sunshine"? Nah, fam.

4. "Just Dance" - Lady Gaga

Interscope

Lmao, see now I CAN believe Lady Gaga was humping inflatable whales in 2008.

5. "Disturbia" - Rihanna

Def Jam

Honestly when I think of Rihanna 10 years ago, I still picture innocent lil' Riri in that green dress singing "SOS", not this pixie cut bad gal.

6. "Viva La Vida" - Coldplay

Parlophone

This song literally feels like it's like 73 years old. I refuse to believe Rihanna was alive when this song came out. Chris Martin has to be a vampire. I don't care what you say.

7. "Womanizer" - Britney Spears

Jive

This actually is the type of song that sounds like it'd be from 2008, so I'll allow it.

8. "Sex on Fire" - Kings of Leon

RCA

13-year-old me would really screech this shit like I wasn't actually an extreme virgin that had never seen a picture of a dick outside science textbooks. Smh.

9. "I'm Yours" - Jason Mraz

Atlantic

This song came out in 2008, but yet I could have sworn that I was singing about my imaginary heartbreaks before I ever started singing about my sex being on fire.

10. "When I Grow Up" - The Pussycat Dolls

Interscope

Can you believe it's already been 10 years since we were confusing Nicole Scherzinger wanting to have groupies with her wanting some boobies?! Because bitch, me TOO THE FUCK.

11. "So What" - P!nk

LaFace

You know what? This one I can believe. I don't care about P!nk, so you can BET I don't keep tabs on what she does with her time.

12. "Love Story" - Taylor Swift

Big Machine

BOOOOOOOOYYYY, this shit was a fucking banger. But I'm struggling to believe that T-Swift has only really been in the game for 10 years.

13. "7 Things" - Miley Cyrus

Hollywood

Like, you mean to tell me that Miley Cyrus has been making music longer than Taylor Swift? Hannah Montana tracks count. Taylor Swift stans, don't come for me please.

14. "In The Ayer" - Flo Rida feat will.i.am

Atlantic

Lmaoooooo, the lyricism on this track was off the charts. It definitely belongs in 2008... where it can stay.

15. "Single Ladies" - Beyoncé

Columbia

It's wild to me that Beyoncé married Jay-Z in secret, the same year she released this track for all the single bitches of the world. Icon.

16. "That's Not My Name" - The Ting Tings

Columbia

This song is another one that feels like it was released at least 20 years ago. I wonder what The Ting Tings are doing today. I hope they're ok.

17. "Burnin' Up" - The Jonas Brothers

Hollywood

See, I can believe that The Jonas Brothers were doing their thing 10 years ago. You know, before they broke up and the older one had two whole ass daughters.

18. "Touch My Body" - Mariah Carey

Island Records

So you're trying to tell me that MARIAH CAREY AND THE JONAS BROTHERS WERE REALLY OUT HERE RELEASING MUSIC AT THE SAME TIME?! Sorry, but in my mind she really released nothing after "We Belong Together".

19. "4 Minutes" - Madonna ft. Justin Timberlake and Timbaland

Warner Bros.

Lmao, y'all remember this strange, strange collaboration? I feel like it was erased from all our minds, but yeah, it dropped in 2008 too.

20. "Crush" - David Archuleta

Jive

2008? Excuse me? This really sounds like some early-2000s Ryan Cabrera shit, so I do not believe that this was only released 10 years ago.

21. "The Man Who Can’t Be Moved" - The Script

RCA Label Group

Justice for The Script. They banged. This track had me sad and shit, missing people I ain't even met before. Who the fuck was I missing at 13? With my dramatic ass.

22. "Love In This Club" - Usher feat Jeezy

LaFace

All of Usher's music from the last ten years sounds the same, so you could honestly tell me this came out yesterday and I'd be like "yeah, cool I guess".

23. "Black and Gold" - Sam Sparro

Island Records

You could drop this tune in 2018 and it would still do well on the charts. I'll hear no slander against this song. Banged then, bangs now.

24. "Whatever You Like" - T.I

Atlantic

Honestly, this music video is so very peak 2008 but the song is still fire. If you played this at a party tonight, I bet you every single person would sing along.

25. "Lollipop" - Lil Wayne

Cash Money Records

"Lollipop" really is one of those hip-hop songs that no one will EVER forget. In saying that, I really thought it was at least 15 years old. Well, come on, at least older than "7 Things" by Miley Cyrus. 😭

Oh, and don't worry y'all. I got you with the Spotify playlist. 👊
