Needless to say, we’re in full support of making the scene the focal point of the next decade. We miss the overly edited flash photos taken at unflattering angles, spending hours customizing our profile and mentally sorting our Top 8.
In honor of the Rawring ’20s, we decided to help you put yourself back in that mid-’00s mindset and figure out which throwback track would be on your Myspace player this year. Find out with our quiz down below.
More on Myspace
After Myspace lost over a decade’s-worth of music in 2019, the internet came crumbling down over itself. However, some artists such as the Devil Wears Prada, don’t seem to be too bothered by the sudden change.
In fact, in a brief interview with TMZ, vocalist/guitarist Mike Hranica says he’s actually kind of relieved that some of the band’s earlier releases are now buried in the internet abyss never to be heard from again.
Additionally, Hranica says that if you are currently up in arms about Myspace’s current music dilemma, you probably “lost it anyway.”
Hranica goes on to explain that Myspace is pretty outdated. In that regard, Hranica notes it probably wasn’t the most reliable place to put important files in the first place.
“I find it really reckless and foolish to count on MySpace, the most dated platform, to hold something of importance, being your music,” Hranica says.
The vocalist then goes on to admit that his band really didn’t lose anything of interest to the server migration.
“I can think of one stupid cover song we once did, but honestly it’s not to our objection ot peril to be losing that super old stuff,” Hranica says. “I find it rather refreshing to lose some of my 15 to 18-year-old self. But that’s just me.”
Thanks to some internet superheroes, nearly half a million songs uploaded between the years of 2008 and 2010 were later recovered an entered into an archive that anyone can use. Check it out here.
