Today marks the ninth anniversary of Throwback Thursday and to celebrate Spotify have revealed a chart of the most popular #TBT songs since its inception. 

R.Kelly's remix of 'Ignition' came out as the most reminisced track, followed by Usher, Lil Jon and Ludacris with 'Yeah!' then Beyonce and Jay-Z with 'Crazy In Love' - making it apparent that the noughties are in fact our most craved musical years. (check out the top 100 via the playlist below)

You'd have to reach as far back as number seven to find a cut of nineties cheese with Spice Girls' 'Wannabe' and amazingly this is the most aged song in the entire top 30. Does John Lennon, Bowie or Oasis even exist in this parallel Spotify universe? 

Women are also the prime protagonists of the throwback craze, creating a staggering 74% of #TBT playlists.

In order to establish the throwback hall of fame, Spotify reviewed in excess of 80,000 playlists that included "Throwback Thursday" or "TBT" in their titles.
