10 Rock Ballads From The Early 2000s That You Still Know The Words To Even Though You Forgot They Existed Until Just Now

Audioslave - "Be Yourself"

A collaboration between Chris Cornell and the instrumental members of Rage Against The Machine yielded a pretty solid first album, but leading their second with this kinda weak ballad didn't do their sales any favors.

Puddle of Mudd - "Blurry"

This was in every freaking movie trailer in the early 2000s, and yet for the longest time I had no idea what band was even responsible for it.

Chad Kroeger & Josey Scott - "Hero"

Written for the soundtrack of the first Spider-Man movie, the Nickelback and Saliva singers collaborated on a hit that got bigger than just about anything either band released.

Finger Eleven - "One Thing"

To this day I can't even hear the opening chords of this song without starting to fall asleep from how boring the whole thing is.

Seether - "Broken"

Appearing both on their debut album and again on The Punisher soundtrack, the song ultimately did more to promote singer Shaun Morgan's girlfriend, Evanescence singer Amy Lee. So much so, the band no longer plays it live.

Hinder - "Lips Of An Angel"

Okay, real talk for a second here; this band and this song are freaking awful.

Do you remember hearing any of these on the radio all the time?

As much as we like to joke about how awful the early 2000s could be, one thing that definitely wasn't awful during that time was the music. While there are plenty of songs from that time that have sadly been forgotten, there are others that, love 'em or hate 'em, will forever be burned into our memories. You definitely still remember all the words to these songs, but you definitely forgot that they all came out in the same year. So here's to 2002, the year we all forgot was actually unforgettable.
