    It might be hard to believe that 2000s nostalgia is a thing. As in, people are yearning for some brightly colored, faux-leather flared pants. People miss shopping at Hot Topic. And most of all, people miss the music.

    That last one is pretty valid, because the music created during the 2000s is actually very good. Maybe not Beatles good. But definitely good enough that if you were to listen to the songs again now, you wouldn't be able to stop yourself from singing along.

    You might even start reminiscing. You may ask yourself, "God, was I in middle school or high school when this song came out? Did we dance to this at prom?" And you may end by thinking, This was everything back then.

    Ahead, we've put together a list of songs that were your everything in the 2000s. Yes, that means some Nelly and Avril and maybe even some Amy Winehouse, too. Click ahead, and prepare to be transported.

    "Gold Digger"
    Kanye West ft. Jamie Foxx
    What a simpler time in music. Jamie Foxx was still pretending to be Ray Charles. And everyone loved Kanye as much as Kanye loved Kanye.

    "Skater Boi"
    Avril Lavigne

    The classic story of a boy who was too punk for the school's princess. And then one day he ends up a star, and she has so many regrets. The only thing better than the song is all of Lavigne's charcoal-black eyeliner and her Hot Topic wardrobe.
