The 2000s were either the best or worst era, depending on who you ask, but all millennials are a little bit nostalgic about them. This decade gave us many iconic rock songs, and comedian Erik John is taking a hilarious look back at them with his spoofs of 2000s rock videos.
John attracted over 40,000 followers on Instagram and 200,000 more on TikTok since starting his account, and he’s showing no signs of stopping. We’ve seen him share all kinds of hilarious videos, inspired by everything from popular culture to current affairs in America, but his parodies of rock music videos eventually put him on the map.
You don’t have to be a huge rock fan to recognize some of the songs from John’s videos because they feature some of the biggest smash hits from the 2000s, from Breaking Benjamin’s “The Diary of Jane” to Three Days Grace’s “Animal I Have Become”.
They also feature elements from 2000s videos that we remember very well, such as blue tint, cringy backgrounds, corny effects, and questionable fashion choices. Whether you fondly remember the 2000s or want them to stay in the past where they belong, you’ll certainly feel nostalgic while watching John’s silly videos.
