The Throwbacks: 2008 Edition

We are going back eleven years for this week's edition of The Throwbacks. Before we get to the music, here are few interesting facts from the year 2008.

  • The Dark Knight was the top movie.

  • Bacon was the big food trend.

  • Tent dresses & nerd glasses were all the rage.

  • The Boston Celtics were NBA Champions.

  • 2008 was the International Year of the Potato

  • Buff and Poppin' were popular slang terms

Oh 2008.... you had us at bacon and potatoes.

That's not all that occurred during that year. We also received some incredible music. For this week's edition of The Throwbacks, we have five albums that were released during 2008. We have picked our top songs from each album and included them below.
