MySpace Have Lost All Music Uploaded To The Site Between 2003 and 2015

R.I.P to our teenage musical tastes.

MySpace has come under fire after they admitted to losing over 12 years of music uploaded to the site between 2003 and 2015. 

Last year all music uploaded to MySpace before 2015 had stopped working, according to reports from people who were still using the platform - now MySpace have confirmed that all songs uploaded to the platform have been lost.

In an email to a concerned MySpace user, the Data Privacy Officer for the site confirmed that "Due to a server migration files were corrupted and unable to be transferred over to our updated site. There is no way to recover the lost data."

This is a heavy loss for our world, with a number of breakout bands finding their audiences almost exclusively on MySpace. 

For context, Black Veil Brides thrived in the MySpace world, with Andy Biersack's (then Andy Six) perfectly coiffed emo fringe taking the world by storm:

Who could forget Attack Attack! breaking through on MySpace?!

And remember that time when you couldn't go to anyone's MySpace profile without NeverShoutNever's 'Trouble' automatically playing?

A tragic cultural loss.
