Ah, TRL: the beloved music countdown show that filled our after-school hours with all the pop hits and industry rivalries we could handle. Though it seemed the magic would never end, it eventually did, when the show concluded its 10-year run in 2008. Nearly a decade later, however, it's making a glorious comeback, and come October, five co-hosts, including DC Young Fly and Erik Zachary, will be taking over MTV's revamped Times Square headquarters to reintroduce the TRL phenomenon to a whole new generation. While there’s no word yet on whether Carson Daly will be making an appearance, or what kind of genius musical talent MTV will tap for the show's debut, we have no doubt it'll be epic — especially if these retro moments from the show’s golden age are any indicator. Click through to relive them all with us!
