WARNING and FIRST OF ALL, I will not take any Play slander in this post. This is a Play safe spot for REAL PLAY FANS ONLY. Fake fans will NOT be tolerated.

If you have something bad to say about Play then go row a boat, climb a hill, or choke (non-violently, like on a small carrot). I don't have the time.

Disney Channel

That said, if you watched the Disney Channel between the years of 2001-2005 then you know all about Play. They played their videos constantly.

We love our original four.

Yes, I know. It's weird, they were like 12, but the early 2000s were problematic as hell. Have you even seen Dude Where's My Car? lately. YIKES.

Also, in this post we will only discuss the original four members (they had a few group changes) because, no offense, I don't have time for the others.

Now, for intros...

We have our girl Rosie.

Play was cool because they were the soundtrack to the commercials between episodes of "Lizzie" and "Even Stevens." They were a Swedish group which means they are were born to make bops. It's basically in their blood to be iconic.

Play's most played Disney Channel track was probably "Us Against The World." It was futuristic and cool.

Then there was "I'm Gonna Make You Love," a gorgeous duet with that douchey looking guy from Dream Street. This song delivered vocals and early 2000s looks.

They had a sweet lil' retro moment with their cover of "Whole Again."

There was obviously a "hip hop" moment. Iggy Azalea wishes her sad discography was half as iconic as "M.A.S.T.E.R." Lil Fizz, wow, a B2K legend.

"Evergirl" was a true bop.

They had a superior version of that Cheetah Girls song, "Cinderella."

They also, for some reason, covered "Hard Knock Life."

Lastly, there was "I Must Not Chase The Boys." A truly superior pop song and relatable moment.

And, because their music was recently added to Spotify, here's a PLAYlist:
