Don't Look Now But The 10 Songs That Defined Your Childhood Are Being Played On Oldies Stations

There's an episode of The Simpsons where a young Homer chastises his dad for not being "with it," only for Grandpa Simpson to give this cryptic comment: "I used to be 'with it,' but then they changed what 'it' was. Now what I'm with isn't 'it,' and what's 'it' seems weird and scary to me. It'll happen to you!"

Well, turns out Grandpa knew what he was talking about, because a bunch of the songs we're now listening to are considered "oldies" by the current generation of music listeners. Here are just a few that are now being played on "oldies" and "classic" stations that'll make you feel like a grandparent.

Nirvana - "Smells Like Teen Spirit"

It's one of the most iconic rock songs of all time, and ushered in the grunge era when the 90s were just underway. Real talk, this song is now almost 30 years old. Yeah.

Barenaked Ladies - "One Week"

It's been one week since you looked at me, but it's also been an entire lifetime since this song came out.

Ace of Base - "The Sign"

This is probably a sign that we're all starting to become adults, and I hate it.

Get ready to feel REALLY old with these next few...
