From middle school dances to family parties in the early 2000’s, there were a few jams that you knew the entire lyrics and dance moves to. If you weren’t burning CD’s, then you for sure had these songs downloaded onto your iPod.

It all started in the year ?2000? with:

“It Wasn’t Me” by Shaggy

Half the time you couldn’t understand what Shaggy was singing, but you for sure knew the chorus to this song.

And in ?2001? the DJ would play:

“I’m Real” by J.Lo

Everyone knew anything with J.Lo and Ja Rule would be a hit.

“Where The Party At?” by Jagged Edge

This was the weekend anthem.

“La Bomba” by Azul Azul

This was pretty much the Latino version of the “Cha Cha Slide.” And you were probably humiliated when your dad got up to dance this.

?2002? kept it poppin’ with jams like:

“Asereje” by Las Ketchup

A song you just had to know the moves to.

“Hot In Herre” by Nelly

Someone was bound to take off their jacket as soon as this song came on. ?

“Where Is The Love” by The Black Eyed Peas

It was borderline a little cheesy for you, but you couldn’t help move your head to their beats.

In ?2003?, road trip jams consisted of:

“Suga Suga” by Baby Bash feat. Frankie J.

And every time you saw a Holiday Inn you’d start singing this song. You couldn’t help it.

And in ??2004?? we had our hips moving to…

“Gasolina” by Daddy Yankee
