Reality shows, flared jeans, toy pagers, shrugs, trucker and fedora hats, chunky highlights, popped collars, chained wallets, and anything Von Dutch aren’t the only things that made the 2000s a bizarre time in culture. The one-hit wonders we have below also shook things up a little bit, whether in bars or clubs, or in your room (where you patiently waited for them to play on the radio so you could record them in your blank cassette tape).
These might be one-hit wonders, but if you go and search these songs on YouTube, you’ll find that they all have more than a million views; some even go up to 39 million. Nostalgia is a trend that will never go out of style, these songs prove it—while also being another way for us to make you feel #TANDERS!
1) "Butterfly" by Crazytown (2000)
Crazytown, or more known as the “poppish” version of The Prodigy (probably not, their vocalists just look alike), released this song in 2000, along with a trippy, almost nauseating video.
“Come my lady / Come, come my lady / You’re my butterfly / Sugar, baby,” was probably one of the most-heard lyrics in bars back then, and a lot of people sang along with it, or became really annoyed.
2) "Who Let The Dogs Out?" by Baha Men (2000)
Believe it or not, this song actually won a Grammy Award for “Best Dance Recording.” It became famous as the banner song of the Rugrats In Paris’ OST. Up until now, we still don’t know who let those damn dogs out. If Baha Men had another hit, the whole world would have probably found the culprit. Woof, woof, woof!
3) "Because I Got High" by Afroman (2001)
