For the young, the old, and the everyone-in-between, 2008 revolved around what was arguably the most significant election of our lives, to date. Although you may not have been eligible to vote yet, it was exciting to have—for the first time—a presidential candidate that was cool enough to commission a street artist for his campaign. It was also the Summer Olympics that Michael Phelps managed to break an insane world record at the Beijing Olympics.
We'll breakdown 2008, but you can relive all your summer anthems year by year: 1995 | 1996 | 1997 | 1998 | 1999 | 2000 | 2001 | 2002 | 2003 | 2004 | 2005 | 2006 | 2007 | 2008 | 2009 | 2010 | 2011 | 2012 | 2013
