    People Are Sharing The Songs From Their Childhood That Are Still Bangers, And I Almost Can't Handle The Nostalgia

    Give the Space Jam soundtrack an honorary Grammy.

    Sometimes we listen to a song from when we were kids and think, How did I ever find this good? Other times we're like, "This song is a FREAKIN' BOP."

    TikToker @storymodebae decided to unearth some more childhood gems and challenge everyone to "name a song that had no damn business being that good for a kids movie or TV show." Her contribution? "Hit 'Em High (the Monstars' Anthem)" by Busta Rhymes, Coolio, LL Cool J, Method Man, and B-Real from Space Jam.
