The year when skinny jeans became cool, you couldn’t look anywhere without seeing an emo kid and Gwen Stefani popularised Japanese Harajuku fashion.
The year when it became uncool to have a centre part, and side bangs became all the rage.
And that’s not even to mention the music. Can you believe these tunes are 10 years old already?
BLACK EYED PEAS – ‘MY HUMPS’
Remember burning up the DF to this number?
RIHANNA – ‘PON DE REPLAY’
RiRi was just 17 when she released her debut single in 2005.
PUSSYCAT DOLLS – ‘DON’T CHA’
This was inescapable back in the day.
KANYE WEST – ‘GOLD DIGGER’
Before Kim and North, before the Taylor Swift incident – there was this absolute banger.
NICKELBACK – ‘PHOTOGRAPH’
Honestly, this new version is better.
50 CENT – ‘CANDY SHOP’
Good old Fiddy.
PANIC! AT THE DISCO – ‘BUT IT’S BETTER IF YOU DO
P!ATD’s sparkling wordplay and ridiculously long song titles made a lot of people’s teen years a good place to be.
MISSY ELLIOTT – ‘LOSE CONTROL’
Music make you lost control…
ALL-AMERICAN REJECTS – ‘DIRTY LITTLE SECRET’
The video for this clip features postcards from Post Secret – a movement that was massive at the time, in which people sent in their deepest, darkest secrets anonymously on paper, and they were posted to a blog.
THE FRAY – OVER MY HEAD (CABLE CAR)’
The soft rockers who dominated radio waves and TV screens in the mid-2000s kicked off with this number.
