    Watching Miley swing on a wrecking ball nude and licking a sledgehammer is definitely one of those moments that altered my brain chemistry.

    No joke, I first found out who Jeffrey Dahmer was through Juicy J's line "She eat your heart out like Jeffrey Dahmer."

    3. Lady Gaga — "Applause"

    Do you remember the Great Little Monster-Katycat War when this song came out? As a Little Monster who tirelessly stanned Artpop 10 years ago, I sure do.

    4. Katy Perry — "Roar"

    Growth is realizing this song slaps.

    Sometimes I hear this song today and it actually blows my mind it's 10 years old. It's a testament to Daft Punk being way ahead of their time.

    6. Beyoncé ft. Jay-Z — "Drunk in Love"

    There were a lot of cultural resets a decade ago, but Queen Bey's surprise release of her self-titled album was THE cultural reset of all cultural resets. Manifesting that she performs this at the Renaissance World Tour.

    7. Lorde — "Royals"

    Going to high school in a small town, this song really hit hard back in the day. IYKYK.

    8. Lana Del Rey — "Young and Beautiful"

    The way this song made me obsessed with The Great Gatsby and its soundtrack. Truly an underrated song by the queen of sad girl music.

    9. Ariana Grande ft. Mac Miller — "The Way"

    Speaking of "the way," what happened between then and now with Ariana and Mac makes this song hit different.

    10. Zedd ft. Foxes — "Clarity"

    Remember when Apple would have a free song to download every week on the iTunes Store? That was how I first discovered this song AND Zedd.

    11. One Direction — "Best Song Ever"

    I'll never forget the hype leading up to this video's release. Still hoping for a 1D reunion (a former Directioner can dream).

    12. Britney Spears — "Work B***h"

    Can you name any other song that's good for a quick serotonin boost, working out, cleaning the house, getting work done, AND turning up? We stan a multifaceted queen.

    13. Justin Timberlake ft. Jay-Z — "Suit & Tie"

    The radio played a lot of songs to filth back in the day, but this one ESPECIALLY.

    14. Avicii — "Wake Me Up"

    Avicii gave us both EDM bangers and songs that teach us lessons about life. His passing was truly a loss.

    15. P!nk ft. Nate Ruess — "Just Give Me a Reason"

    Not gonna lie, this is still a great duet to do for karaoke.

    16. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis ft. Ray Dalton — "Can't Hold Us"

    I hope Macklemore is doing well, too. He really helped define the sound of the 2010s, especially with this banger.

    17. Ylvis — "The Fox (What Does the Fox Say)"

    I feel like the early 2010s was the last time we'll ever have songs made popular by YouTube. 2011 had Rebecca Black's "Friday," 2012 gave us Psy's "Gangnam Style" and 2013 gave us this... time capsule. TikTok could never, to be honest.

    18. Eminem ft. Rihanna — "The Monster"

    I was today years old when I found out Rihanna says "Well, that's nothin'" and not "Well, that's not fair" at the end of the chorus. I think a new Mandela effect just dropped.

    19. Demi Lovato — "Heart Attack"

    10 years later and this song is still good to scream your heart out to.

    20. Fall Out Boy — "My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up)"

    Fall Out Boy may or may not created a generation of pyromaniacs with this song.

    21. Eminem — "Rap God"

    The simpler times when the only worry in your life was seeing if you could flawlessly rap Eminem's 97-word, 15-second verse in front of your friends.

    22. Pitbull ft. Kesha — "Timber"

    I still go feral whenever this song comes on.

    23. Drake ft. Majid — "Hold On, We're Going Home"

    This one's still a staple in my chill-out playlist. Aged like a fine wine.
