Generic list post: "can you believe 2005 was a decade ago?" edition

2005: the year Crash won the best movie Oscar, Lost won the best drama Emmy, Little Britain won the best comedy Bafta, Simon Cowell won GQ's TV personality of the year award, Liverpool won the Champion's League, Chelsea won the Premiership title, the Patriots won the Super Bowl, and that Geordie twat who shagged Makosi in the hot tub won Big Brother U.K.

Needs "Hate It Or Love It" on here.

I'd plump for Tony Yayo's Fake Love over anything from Game's first album.

Nice list. The Game was such a joke in '05, still is to some extent, but "Hate It Or Love It" was undeniable. Also:

50 Cent & Mobb Deep - "Outta Control"
Young Jeezy - "Go Crazy"
Juelz Santana - "Mic Check"

I think Back Like Cooked Crack 2 was the first thing I ever downloaded from Dat Piff. Shit's really changed since '05.
