Long before we created our own playlist on Spotify, or even created a Facebook profile, we found ourselves lurking in MySpace, the site that gave us our latest song-on-repeat and that launched some of your favorite music artists today.
Myspace accidentally lost all the music uploaded from its first 12 years in a server migration, losing over 50 million songs from 14 million artists. https://t.co/OyKB5Dxtw9

MySpace was where all the up-and-coming artists found their footing; it was also one of the first websites that quickly became popular with the rise of social media. As Facebook became the social media of choice for many came the (fast) fall of MySpace. The site made the headlines today for all the devastating reasons: it was reported that the site lost all its uploaded content between 2003 and 2015, including songs from 14 million artists, which is estimated to be 50 million songs.
While we mourn the loss of one of the remnants of the good ’00 memories, listen to some of the songs that were a staple in our profile.
