28 Song Lyrics That Most Definitely Appeared On Your AIM Account

Much like us today, in the earlier 2000s, we had a constant urge to share every single activity we were doing or emotions we felt with my social network. While today this means torturing friends and family with endless pictures of ourselves on Instagram, back then it was decking out our AIM profile and away messages with all sorts of truly meaningful song lyrics.

We partied like a rock$tar.
