Beach Bangers: A Breakdown Of Our Favorite Summer Anthems

We can already tell this summer is about to be perfect. Everyone's already scoping out their cookout plans, which are well-deserved after surviving that endlessly brutal winter. Let's just hope that whatever summer has in store for us doesn’t end until mid-September at the earliest. One thing that will keep the seasonal vibes rolling are those summer anthems spinning at every rooftop party you got a confirmed RSVP to. As we wait to see which songs will be the new beach bangers of 2014, here’s a few songs from past summers that still give us the same good vibes we felt when they first dropped. Lounge around the way with us as we look back on hits that rocked from June to August, and every summer thereafter. From Nelly and Nas to Weezer and Will Smith, we guarantee you’ve been to a cookout or two where these songs blared through the speakers.
