15 Songs That Will Immediately Trigger Anyone Born Before 1995

- Page 1

Music is an interesting thing, especially in terms of how it relates to your own memory. No matter what year it was, there's definitely a song from either your childhood or teenage years that you heard so damn much (whether you wanted to or not) that even just hearing the first few words will send your brain spiraling back to those times.

This is especially true of any of the stuff that got played on the radio during the weirdly eclectic time that was the last 90s and early 2000s. Whether you were rocking your JNCOs or covered head to toe in body glitter, we can pretty much guarantee these 15 lyrics will have these songs playing through your head all over again.

"SomeBODY"

Anybody else just get reminded of Shrek by this song?

"All the / Small things"

"Coming out of my cage and I've been doing just fine"

"Let's go girls"

If the opening horn section doesn't take you back, this first line definitely will.

"Another turning point / A fork stuck in the road"

Fun fact, a friend of mine used to blast this at the end of parties in order to get people to clear our of his house as quickly as possible.

If you thought THOSE were nostalgic, wait 'til you hear the rest...
