Despite existing only a decade ago, the lifestyle of a music fan in 2005 is leagues away from present day. Back then, we spent hours in front of our televisions watching music videos from this scene actually getting played on television. We’d populate our Myspace interests with hundreds of bands and go to malls where we’d buy their entire CDs for that one song we liked. It was a sweet time when our attention spans were not crumbling under the pressure of today’s endless options. It allowed us time to focus on and really get behind the cream of the crop, which drove our scene into mainstream focus and gave us the means to define a year that remains influential and crucial to listeners today.
Here are 19 albums celebrating their 10th birthdays this year that make us feel super-old.
