Music is constantly changing. As an artist evolves and grows in their career, their sound begins to change. And while their new music may be amazing, nothing can compare to their classic work. Here’s a playlist we all put together full of some of our favorite throwback songs that still never get old.

“Ocean Avenue” – Yellowcard
“Perfect for anyone who has ever had a summer romance, this catchy break up song has been an icon of pop punk since the single’s radio debut in 2004. After all, everyone knows the feeling of wanting to make one night last forever.” — Jina

“In Too Deep” – Sum 41
“Nothing describes high school better than the feeling of desparately trying to get your crush to notice you. Like trying to keep your head above water, Sum 41’s ‘In Too Deep’ perfectly captures when you finally get to the point of realization that you may be getting a little more than what you bargained for.” — Jina

“Basket Case” – Green Day
“I started listening to punk bands when I was about two years old; or at least that’s what I’ve been told. Growing up with three older siblings that listen to this music, it was only natural, and almost expected, that I listen to at least one of the bands they listened to. I am constantly reminded that when I was about four or five, that Basket Case was my favorite song and how I used to sing it no matter where I was. I literally grew up with this song; which is why I’ve added it to our Throwback playlist.” — Natalie

“Pressure” – Paramore
“Paramore was one of the first bands I began listening to without the help or encouragement of my siblings. They listened to them but this band wasn’t one of the few they shared with me when I was little. I was around eleven or twelve when I started listening to Paramore, I had just started middle school. Listening  to them made that confusing and hard three years a little easier and I actually felt accepted by people I had never even met. Pressure was, and still is, one of my favorite songs by them so it only seemed fitting that I add it to this playlist.” — Natalie

“Mr. Brightside” – The Killers
“The iconic intro to this song makes it impossible to forget. If you’re coming out of your cage and doing moderately okay, you know exactly what I mean. “Mr. Brightside” by the Killers dominates grunge culture.” — Alex

“The Rock Show” -Blink 182
“If you’ve ever had the adolescent fleeting summer love then “The Rock Show” by Blink-182 is a song you will recognize well. Let’s be honest, we’ve all wanted to fall in love with “the girl at the rock show”. It’s the ideal romance troupe fantasy.” — Alex

“Grand Theft Autumn/Where Is Your Boy?” – Fall Out Boy
““Grand Theft Autumn/Where Is Your Boy?” is an excellent track for when you’re feeling old school. This 2003 track really showcases Fall Out Boy’s pop-punk roots. There’s also nothing better than singing along to that acapella beginning.” — Tabitha

“Six Feet Under The Stars” – All Time Low
“You’ve most likely sang along to “Six Feet Under The Stars” while your parents drove you to middle school back in 2007. Or maybe you were driving yourself to high school. Whatever the case is, nothing hits throwback quite like the words “I’ll take you out though I’m hardly worth your time” strung together in the chorus.” — Tabitha
