Oh, those olden, golden aughties — they seem so long ago! Thankfully, VH1 is bringing it all back to us with the next installment of their ongoing 100 Greatest Songs series: the ’00s.
The channel’s five-night, one-hour-per-night special begins airing next Monday, October 3 at 10/9c. But in the meantime, we’ve got a sneak peek at the first 11 entries (that would be nos. 100-90) for you.
Also in our pocket: host Pete Wentz. The Fall Out Boy bassist and general aughties-fashion bellwether turned Black Cards frontman tells EW, “Being the host of this show is my way of preventing a mid-life crisis. I get to relive my twenties minus the eyeliner and flat iron. Win-win for everyone!”
Find — and fight over — the early entries after the jump, including two American Idols, five Pussycats, and (if the picture above didn’t give you your first clue) one very special Sisqo:
100. Sisqo, “Thong Song”
99. Carrie Underwood, “Before He Cheats”
98. 3 Doors Down, Kryptonite”
97. Shaggy, “It Wasn’t Me”
96. Pussycat Dolls ft Busta Rhymes, “Don’t Cha”
95. James Blunt, “You’re Beautiful”
94. Daughtry, “It’s Not Over”
93. OK Go!, “Here It Goes Again”
92. Flo Rida ft. T-Pain, “Low”
91. Creed, “With Arms Wide Open”
90. Mystikal, “Shake Ya Ass”
