1998 was truly a pivotal year in the musical landscape. If you're one of the lucky ones (we're not), than you were old enough to party along to these songs at Freanik, MTV's Spring Break, and the various different Summer Jams and block parties that used to be off the charts. Perhaps you were a teenager, and bumped around in your top-down convertibles with your friends to these tracks on the way to the mall.You may have even been of school age, and are very clearly able to remember putting these artists stickers on your lunch boxes and rushing home to see the music videos for these songs on MTV, VH1, and BET. Or perhaps you're like us—you were only a couple years into the game in 1998, but are still very much aware of these songs because they had an impact on your childhood some years later. Whatever category you fall into, we're putting you in a time machine and revisiting the top songs of 1998 to give you major nostalgic vibes.
Just like 2003 and 1983 are celebrating their 20th and 40th anniversaries respectively, 1998 is also celebrating its 25th. If that isn't enough to make you feel super old wait until we get to next year where it will be twenty-five-years since 1999. We'll spare you that depressing stat for now and get back to the year 1998. Let's jam!
