YOU WANT YOUR MTV, AND PARAMOUNT+ HAS IT

23 Sceney Songs That Were Your Myspace Background Music

Your taste in music was soooo original back then.

In the mid-2000s, Myspace (then "MySpace") was the place to be after kids grew tired of blogging about their preteen angst on Xanga. Profile customization was all the rage; your Myspace layout conveyed as much about your personality as your sense of fashion did. Because of this, the music you auto-played in the background of your profile was of utmost importance.

Because everyone loves nostalgia, we decided to remind you of the sceniest, most questionably punk-rock tunes from your middle school days. Here's what we came up with:
