throwback thursday: total request live

because carson daly is movin' on up in the world.

Back in the day, there was no better after school activity than parking your derrière on the couch and counting down the best 10 videos of the day with Carson Daly, TRL host and our personal favorite VJ of all time.

Tune in to the clip below to catch up on all the Britney Spears news you may have missed from 2001, and tweet us your favorite TRL memories too.
