Scrolling through TikTok is like jumping in a time machine headed for 2000.
We all know that TikTok is pretty much ruled by Gen Z. Almost half of its users are ages 10 to 29. Millennials are considered the app’s older, out of touch crowd. And some of its biggest “celebrities” are 16-year-old girls.
One of the most interesting parts of Gen Z’s rule over TikTok is watching their obsession and love for all things early 2000s — the pre-teen and teenage days of most Millennials. From low-rise jeans (ick) making a comeback, to piecey bangs being back in the spotlight, to the countless 2000s movie outfit compilations floating around, it’s clear to see that Gen Z is determined to bring back the old days.
But the best part of their Y2K fixation? Getting to revisit some of the best, most iconic early 2000s bops, of course. Here are some of our favorite songs that are popular on TikTok right now, and are sure to make any Millennial feel oh so nostalgic.
