The "Around the Horn" panelist will pick and discuss the biggest hits of the past 15 years. This is 2001. Listen to the entire playlist below.

“Where the Party At” by Jagged Edge featuring Nelly

“Guaranteed this was the first thing Mike Krzyzewski said when he won his third championship, one more than Dean Smith. Or maybe not.”

“Take It to Da House” by Trick Daddy

“And that’s just what the '01 Miami Hurricanes, possibly the greatest college football team ever, did.”

“Stuck in a Moment You Can’t Get Out Of” by U2

“The worst of times ...”

“Beautiful Day” by U2

“... can’t stop the best from coming. These are two songs from one album that many will associate with September 11, forever."

“Kryptonite” by 3 Doors Down

“Because we finally found out Jordan’s kryptonite -- old age -- when he came back to the Wizards.”

“It Wasn’t Me” by Shaggy

“Probably Alabama’s first defense as the Albert Means scandal threatened to destroy its football program. Needless to say, it didn’t work.”

“My Baby” by Lil' Romeo

“Hey, did anyone else 'play college basketball' and have a Top 100 year-end single since 1998? That’s what I thought.”

“Hanging by a Moment” by Lifehouse

“That, basically, describes the narrow margin of the end of the Yankees’ dynasty.”

“Fallin’” by Alicia Keys

“Yeah, started getting rocky for Shaq and Kobe ... while they were obliterating the league in the postseason.”
