Outkast’s ‘Hey Ya!’ Is 10 Years Old Today. Let Us Reminisce.

Just ten years ago, Big Boi and André 3000 (better known then as Outkast) released two lead singles off of their double album Speakerboxxx/The Love Below. One of them was called "Hey Ya!" and, boy, did America love it. "Lend me some sugar, I am your neighbor!" we all hollered at happy hours, weddings, bar mitzvahs (and probably even a few really upbeat funerals), And now we can look back, with ten more years of life under our belts, and realize what a fantastic song "Hey Ya!" really was.

Remember the Grammys?
