Top 140 Best Throwback Songs

Some people have lived a little longer, seen a little more, and partied a little harder. And, while we (er, they, er crap – I just did an age reveal, didn’t I?) are still chugging along in the modern day, when a certain jam comes on the radio or at a club or anywhere we’re transported.

Some songs just take you back to certain times and places, like teleportation devices. Well, these are the best throwback songs to remind you of way back when.

Some will take you back a bit further than others. And some will take you back even before you were born, let alone getting down to great music. Each is a one-way ticket to a little slice of paradise. So, let’s rev up the time machine and get moving.

Best Throwback Songs


Top 140 Best Throwback Songs

Throwback Rock Songs

I decided to group songs by genre, even though a lot of them cross these barriers. For starters, here are some of the best throwback songs in rock and roll history.

1 Time Warp – Rocky Horror Picture Show

If we’re going to talk about throwback songs, we might as well start with a song called “Time Warp.”

This was the hottest, most rocking track from the Rocky Horror Picture Show musical (1973) and cult hit film (1975). This freaky musical show was revolutionary, pushing the boundaries of sex, gender roles, and even extra-terrestrials.

The “Time Warp” has its own dance, too. And, if you’ve ever done it, especially live in the theater, it’s something that you’ll do automatically as soon as this song comes on.

2 Rock and Roll All Nite – Kiss

The made-up madmen of Kiss are absolute rock legends. Their most memorable song may just have to be “Rock and Roll All Nite” off their 1975 album, Dressed to Kill. This is the ultimate party-rocking song from a band that has done more than its fair share of partying.

Yeah, this song is old…

But it has been successfully used for years. It appears on over 20 Kiss albums, Poison did a cover in 1987, and it was on the soundtrack of the 1993 movie Dazed and Confused.

It’s the song the band is best known for. And the one they’ve closed almost every one of their concerts with for the past 40+ years.

3 Summer of ‘69 – Bryan Adams

Canadian Rock superstar Bryan Adams wrote his own throwback Rock song in 1985 as a reference to earlier times. The “Summer of ‘69” includes the best days of his life, he tells us in song.

It was back when he was young and restless and trying to decide whether to settle down or continue a career as a rocker.

Well, we’re glad he chose what he did…

This song has such a cool feel to it. It’s wistful but somehow romantic and happy, too. That’s memory, isn’t it? As a funny side note, Bryan Adams once joked that the song was about the pozish and not the year, which gives this track a whole new meaning if it were true.

4 Pour Some Sugar On Me – Def Leppard

In 1987, the biggest Rock record of the year had to be Hysteria. This was Def Leppard’s comeback album after near bankruptcy and their drummer losing his arm in a car crash.

But, the album ended up being a massive success and spawned what is now the band’s signature song, “Pour Some Sugar On Me.”

Rumor has it…

This song didn’t get a lot of attention until strip clubs started playing it in heavy rotation, and then it eventually went big on mainstream radio.

It never made it to #1 officially, but when you hear this slow anthem rock jam and its super-sweet sing-along chorus, it might just go to #1 in your heart.

5 Sweet Child o’ Mine – Guns ‘n’ Roses

“Sweet Child o’ Mine” is one of GnR’s biggest hits ever. Appearing on their debut album, Appetite for Destruction, which took 1988 by storm, this song is an emotional ode. It was inspired by Axl Rose’s girlfriend at the time. But, if you’ve got kids, you know you think of them when you hear it play.

This is also one of the most played songs of all time. The official video has over 1.4 billion (yes, BILLION!) views on YouTube, and that’s only from the past 12 years. If you add radio play over the past 35 years, well, you get what I’m saying. It’s sweet, it rocks, and it’s just a great fun song.

6 Thunderstruck – AC/DC

AC/DC has been rocking hard since the 70s. So, who would have thought that their most beloved song would be released in the 90s? Never mind that it would become one of the best throwback songs of all time.

Well OK, it only just snuck in there, being released on The Razors Edge in 1990. But “Thunderstruck” is probably the most recognizable song of this band for fans and non-fans alike.

It starts in with Angus Young tapping that beautiful riff on the guitar; then the drums start to slam along with shouts of “Thunder!” building things up. Then after the first verse, it explodes into the hard-hitting rock number that we all know.

This song is pure energy…

Like a lightning strike, or, er, thunder strike? Anyway, if this isn’t a rocking song to take you back in time, I don’t know what will.

7 Creep – Radiohead

Yeah, we were all pretty messed up back in high school, weren’t we? Radiohead’s “Creep” is a perfect encapsulation of this feeling – being an awkward and insecure misfit. It’s sort of an anthem, especially for pimply, skinny boys with big crushes on the hot girls at school.

While it’s dark and slow…

It has one of the coolest guitar breaks ever, just before the chorus. And, if you can get the timing right, it can make you a karaoke legend.

This song came out on Radiohead’s 1993 debut album, Pablo Honey. That’s right, the album that propelled them into the spotlight and a decades-long career as shoe-gazing weirdo alt-rockers. Hmm, I guess some things never change.

8 1979 – Smashing Pumpkins

The Smashing Pumpkins did something brilliant with the song “1979”. Already long-passed when it was released in 1996 on the Smashing Pumpkins opus Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, this is a song laden with retro feelings.

The normally rough Pumpkins made this into a sweet-sounding reminiscence. It harkens back to sweeter times, especially in our childhoods, no matter who we are.

This song reminds me of being young and full of life and being totally unstoppable. And, as the lyrics at the end of the song go, “The street heats the urgency of now – As you see there’s no one around.” That’s the feeling of youthful abandonment if I’ve ever heard it.

9 Mr. Brightside – The Killers

Late 2003 saw The Killers burst onto the Rock scene with an amazing debut album. One of the songs on Hot Fuss, though, ended up being a surprise success that no one saw coming. “Mr. Brightside” has just the right amount of tension and energy to make it an intriguing song.

This is a song about jealousy and imagining your partner cheating with someone new. And I think we’ve all been there. “Now they’re going to bed – And my stomach is sick – And it’s all in my head – But she’s touching his chest now – He takes off her dress now – Let me go.”

So, while this might not be one of the best moments you want to relive in your life, I’m sure it will take you back all the same. Don’t worry; you’re better off now. And this is one of the best throwback songs to remind you of that fact.

10 1985 – SR-71 / Bowling For Soup

This throwback song is a throwback all on its own. “1985” was written by SR-17 and then given to the Pop-Punk band Bowling For Soup, who did a much more popular version in 2004. It’s Pop-Rock with a slightly hard edge, but it’s not so much the music that you need to pay attention to.

The song is all about a woman who’s stuck, emotionally anyway, in 1985. It references all the big bands of the day, like Springsteen, Madonna, U2, and more. Plus, movies like The Breakfast Club and Pretty In Pink.

So, you get a double whammy, because this song might take you back to 2004, and, then from there, another step into the heart of the 80s.

11 Sex on Fire – Kings of Leon

If it’s a throwback to days of pure energy and passion you’re looking for, how about one of the steamiest, sexiest songs ever? “Sex on Fire” by the Kings of Leon is intense, warm, and pulsating with energy. Yeah, that makes it sexy AF.

This song came out in 2008 when Kings of Leon put out their 4th album, Only By The Night. It’s a pretty simple rock song, but it does a few very special things.

First, it has a great guitar riff that drives the verses, and then a screaming riff to power the chorus. It stops and starts back up in all the right places. And singer Caleb Followill’s strong voice pushes the “Whoa – This sex is on fire” chorus to euphoric heights. Reminiscences of steamy nights? Check!

Pop and Dance

Pop Music, by definition, is whatever is popular at the time. That means these Pop throwback songs are intimately tied to the moments when they were played in heavy rotation. Can you remember what you were doing when…?

12 Dancing Queen – ABBA

Now, this IS a real throwback, all the way to 1976! Hair was long and wavy, jeans were bell-bottomed, and the disco-inspired “Dancing Queen” was Swedish singing group ABBA’s biggest hit.

This track went to #1 in America and #25 in other countries as well, making it one of the biggest international successes ever, as well as one of the most popular throwback songs of all time.

So, what’s it about…

This is a song that just goes straight and makes you want to shake your moneymaker, whether you’re a king or queen or whatever. It’s a sugary sweet tale of looking for love on the dance floor, but that can also be interpreted as self-love or just the joy of dancing itself.

And, when you hear the chorus, you’d better have your dancing shoes on already. “You can dance – You can jive – Having the time of your life – Ooh, see that girl – Watch that scene – Digging the dancing queen.”

13 We Are the Champions – Queen

While Queen was mostly a Rock band, they had their Poppier numbers. One of the Poppiest is “We Are the Champions,” a song that has been hailed as a Pop-Rock anthem for success ever since it came out in 1977.

Since then, it has been sung at sports matches, political rallies, and just about every other winning celebration.

Stirring, if we can be honest…

Freddy Mercury takes us from a slow, mournful verse into the huge crescendo of the chorus and back again. With Queen’s signature harmonic chorus singing, this song gets huge and powerful when it needs to be.

It’s such an emotional song that it gives me chills every time I hear it. FYI also one of the world’s favorite karaoke tunes.

14 I’m Blue (Da Ba Dee) – Eiffel 65

This track came out in 1998, though miraculously, I just heard an 8-year-old singing it the other day. That was some blast from the past, let me tell you. “I’m Blue (Da Ba Dee)” was one of the biggest dance songs to hit in the 90s, and surprisingly, it came from an Italian group, Eiffel 65.

This song was huge in Europe. And, because it was in English (sort of), that pushed it into the UK and then into the North American market.

It’s pretty much a nonsense song…

I mean, it’s just some guy singing about how he’s blue and lives in a world where everything is blue. And I don’t think he means sad. So, what made it so successful? Just that cheesy hook that you will never, ever get out of your head. I’m talking about the “Da ba dee, da ba die.” Yeah. Sorry about that.

15 I Want It That Way – Backstreet Boys

The Backstreet Boys were one of, if not THE, biggest boy bands of the 90s. And their biggest song is “I Want It That Way.” This track came out on their third album, Millennium (remember the millennium!?), in 1999 and became the group’s signature song.

It has everything you want in a boy band hit…

Five smooth guys singing their hearts out, a catchy verse, and the call-and-answer chorus that made the song famous. “Tell me why – Ain’t nothing but a heartache – Tell me why – Ain’t nothing but a mistake.”

And, if you were a teen girl in the late 90s, I know this track still makes you swoon.

16 …Baby One More Time – Brittany Spears

Oh baby, baby! Remember this one? This track comes from way back when Brittany was just a sweet, innocent young thing not yet run through the wringer of the music industry. “…Baby One More Time” was arguably the biggest pop song in 1999 and comes from Brit’s album by the same name.

It was a massive hit; I mean massive!

The single sold 10 million copies, went to #1 in 22 countries around the world, and garnered a Grammy nomination while it was at it.

The song is a dancy Pop track that features Spears’ pouty voice sounding a little bit sexy and a little bit coy. It strikes a perfect fantasy balance, as does the schoolgirl-inspired video that went along with it.

Don’t worry; she was 18 when this record hit. And, in some of our hearts and minds, she’ll still be 18 forever. <Sigh>

17 Rehab – Amy Winehouse

Oh, Amy, why did you leave us so early? This brilliant singer gave us some incredible tracks in the noughties, like “Back To Black” and “Stronger Than Me.”

But her signature song was the massive 2006 worldwide hit “Rehab.” This song is upbeat, dancy, and fun to sing along to despite the lyrical content.

Amy Winehouse was a troubled yet incredibly talented artist…

This track shows off both of these sides of her. It showcases her fantastic jazz-influenced voice and her ability to write a great song, while also telling us about her addiction problems straight up. Sadly, she lost that battle, but this song lives on as a reminder of her pride and passion.

18 Baby – Justin Bieber (feat. Ludacris)

“Baby, baby, baby, ooh!” The chorus of Justin Bieber’s 2010 smash hit “Baby” immediately polarized people. You were either with him (a Belieber) or against him (an Adult – just kidding!). This Pop song is just so cute and sickly sweet; it’s hard not to love it and hate it at the same time.

Look, the production is excellent. The lyrics are so sweet, thinking about a lost first love. And, Bieb’s voice reminds you of a young MJ.

It also features Ludacris, who drops some pretty cool bars for what’s otherwise a teeny-bopper song. Doesn’t this just make you shed a tear for your childhood sweetheart?

19 Someone Like You – Adele

A much more grown-up song about the loss of love is Adele’s smash hit “Someone Like You.” When she released this track on her second album, 21, in 2011, it struck a chord in everyone who heard it. This song is so sad and heartbreaking but also passionate and powerful.

In it, Adele tells us the story of a love that went wrong and the person who’s still holding a torch. Her voice is just so perfect for this track, accompanied only by a piano. Trust me, oceans of tears have been shed to this song.

But sometimes, you just gotta go back there to remember what made you the person you are today. She taught us all a hard lesson here – “Sometimes it lasts in love, but sometimes it hurts instead.”

20 Firework – Katy Perry

Come on; I can’t leave you hanging on that sad note. That’s why even though it was released a year before, in 2010, I’m going to round out the Pop song section with one of the happiest, most uplifting songs we know. Yep, it’s Katy Perry’s 2010 hit “Firework.”

This song is about getting up and showing who you are, not holding back, giving 110%, and all that other motivating stuff. The music here is what gets you. This is a dance song that holds you down and then brings you up, pushing the frequencies and the beat to arouse your passions.

And it works. So, when you need to think back to a time when you were gung-ho, throw this track on and dance like no one’s watching.

Hip Hop and R&B Throwback Songs

Hip Hop has changed from small-time street corner rhyming to the biggest thing in music, all in a few decades. R&B has changed, too – it just keeps getting smoother and smoother. From old-school to the early new, these are songs that will take you back to the day.

Another genre that has changed over time. So, let these smooth songs smother you in some love from the past.

21 U Can’t Touch This – MC Hammer

Please Hammer Don’t Hurt ‘Em came out in 1990 by the time MC Hammer was already big. But “U Can’t Touch This” made him huge.

Like most classic Hip Hop, this track features a sample from an earlier funky song, “Superfreak” by the super-freaky Rick James. So, the song itself was a bit of a throwback when it came out.

This is the end of the 80s encapsulated in one track…

You have Hammer pants, the Hammer Dance, and Grammy-winning massive success all rolled into one event. The rapping here is still pretty old-school. But, with the funky music and Hammer’s dance skills, you can still appreciate today why it was a hit.

22 Ice Ice Baby – Vanilla Ice

Speaking of Hip Hop hits, Vanilla Ice’s “Ice Ice Baby” was one of the biggest hits of the decade. It was the best-selling rap single until that spot was taken by Eminem more than ten years later. Whether you love or hate the idea, this 1990 track by a white rapper spread Hip Hop into the mainstream.

This song samples another hit, Queen’s 1981 hit with David Bowie, “Under Pressure,” which gave it some star power to begin with. Yeah, that cool clap-snap beat! Then, the attitude and style pushed this song to popularity.

I also don’t know any white guys aged 38-45 who don’t know the entire verse to this rap. Vanilla released new versions of this song later, including a Nu-Metal version in 1998. But, he was never able to recreate the incredible success of the original.

23 The Humpty Dance – Digital Underground

A third 1990s throwback song, “The Humpty Dance,” was one of the best-loved Hip Hop tracks from that era. It’s credited to Digital Underground, though it’s rapped by Humpy Hump. This is just a character that rapper Shock G made up, and he wrote and delivered the lyrics from this perspective.

But that doesn’t mean it’s quite a joke song…

Instead, it’s just a hilarious track that people remember getting down to. The beat here is phat, sampling Sly and the Family Stone and Parliament for a funky foundation.

Then the lyrics are great on top of that. Humpty shows off, telling all the other rappers in the world he’s the best and the ladies all love him.

It even has its own dance, which apparently looks “like MC Hammer on crack.” “Do-do-do-do me baby – Do the Humpty Hump” will bring you right back to 1990 in a flash anytime you hear it.

24 No Diggity – Blackstreet (feat. Dr. Dre and Queen Pen)

Is this 1996 song R&B or Hip Hop? It has that smooth R&B style provided by the Blackstreet members’ vocals. But this song also has a killer Hip Hop beat and rapping from two heavyweights.

“No Diggity” features both Queen Pen and the legendary Dr. Dre, making it a perfect crossover between the two genres.

The chorus of “I like the way you work it – No diggity – I got to bag it up” is almost always enough to get everyone out of their seats. But, if not, the “Hey yo” part at the end will never fail to get the party going.

25 I’ll Be Missing You – Puff Daddy (feat. Faith Evans)

In 1997, Sean Combs was still Puff Daddy and was both producing and making tracks that were blowing up. But, with “I’ll Be Missing You,” Puffy made one of his most remembered songs ever as a tribute to his late friend Biggie Smalls, the Notorious B.I.G.

This song features Faith Evans singing the chorus, which is an interpolation of the old Police hit “Every Breath You Take.” It’s a heartfelt ode to a friend who will never be forgotten.

If you lost anyone around this time, this is probably the song that will bring that person’s memory back better than any other.

26 Family Affair – Mary J. Blige

Mary J. Blige is a living legend who has been doing it right since the 90s. But one of her most memorable songs of all is “Family Affair,” which came out on her 2001 album, No More Drama.

This song was a massive hit for Blige, going #1 for six weeks in the US. It also brought her back into the spotlight after a period of decline in her career.

This track was produced by a team including Dr. Dre, so it’s no surprise that it features a fat, crunk beat. And, after 20 years, it’s still great to dance to, “So just dance for me.”

27 Lose Yourself – Eminem

Here’s another of the best throwback songs that can get the party rocking anytime it comes on. The 2002 film “8 Mile” starred Eminem in a fictionalized account of what was basically his own life story.

“Lose Yourself” was the explosive hit song from this movie’s soundtrack. At the time, it was the first ever Hip Hop song to win an Academy Award as well as a Grammy.

It’s about doing your best under pressure…

And expressing yourself even in the face of doubters. This is a solid message which makes the song still resonate today. The song is fast and powerful, and Eminem’s rhymes are aggressive and full of energy. And, when this song comes on, it can get everyone pumped up.

28 Where Is the Love? – Black Eyed Peas

The Black Eyed Peas were massive in the noughties, and one of their biggest tracks was 2003’s “Where is the Love?”. This song features Pop-based rapping by the group’s three male members and was co-written by Justin Timberlake, who also sang in the chorus.

This track was created not long after 9/11 and is a response to that event and the subsequent Iraq War. It questions, “Whatever happened to the values of humanity?”

It can quickly bring you back to that time when the world had suddenly become a threatening and uncertain place that needed a lot more love.

29 Crazy In Love – Beyonce (feat. Jay-Z)

Beyonce and Jay-Z have to be the biggest all-star couple in the world. But, back in 2003, they were just young sweethearts who were crazy in love, just like the title of Beyonce’s smash hit. This track blew up and won her a Grammy and MTV Video Music Award as a #1 hit.

The music is fast and funky and builds to a great sing-along chorus. Beyonce’s vocals are on point as she sings in harmony with herself.

Rumor has it that when she asked Jay-Z to contribute to the track, he walked into the studio at 3:00 am and wrote and recorded his bars in just ten minutes. I guess that’s the power of being “Crazy In Love.”
