Throwback Thursday: Pop Culture Things Turn 15

Last week, there was mention of the fact that Britney Spears’ song “Oops! I Did It Again” was released 15 years ago. The week before that, it was the 15th anniversary of *NSYNC’s record-breaking “No Strings Attached” album. Obviously, the news of these anniversaries made me feel old. After the news of the former, I had joked on Twitter that someone should just do an all-encompassing 15th anniversary post of (almost) all the things I had apparently loved as a kid and which now makes me feel old. LIGHTBULB! I might as well do it for the blog! So without further ado, here are some notable releases at the turn of the new millennium and turns 15 years old this year.

[Disclaimer: This obviously isn’t a fully comprehensive list of EVERYTHING that was released or debuted in 2000. It’s strictly the stuff I watched and listened to in the year 2000.]
