The cassette tape is 50 years old this year. There was a time we’re sure you could hardly imagine life without that old tape cartridge filled with your favorite music. Remember when you would whip out a pen to spin the magnetic tape? How about those hours spent creating the perfect mixtures for your friends or going crazy when your cassette player chewed up the tape? Those days are so over.

For the sake of nostalgia, we’re thinking back to some of the tapes we wore out with continuous play. Ours include BBD, Boyz II Men and tapes that literally snapped after way too many rewinds. What are yours? Share yours comments below.
