Ah, 2012 music. Some of our favorite stars were jumpstarting iconic new eras of their careers, including One Direction with their Take Me Home album and Taylor Swift with her pop-infused Red album. We had viral moments like Carly Rae Jepsen’s ‘Call Me Maybe,’ one-hit-wonder smashes like Gotye’s ‘Somebody That I Used to Know,’ and PSY’s ‘Gangnam Style’ walked so TikTok dances could run.
Outside of music, the world was buzzing about the early days of Instagram, The Hunger Games, and neon fashion. John Green published The Fault In Our Stars before it became a movie two years later. Rainbow Loom was starting to become a widespread trend.
Now that 2022 is upon us, we can’t believe it’s been a decade since these massive cultural moments! And you know we at THP love a good quiz, so it’s the perfect opportunity to take a listen down Memory Lane. It’s time to put your knowledge of 2012 music to the test!
