Hit Clips Were The Best Way To Listen To Music

1. Remember Hit Clips?

Remember Hit Clips?

The dictionary-worthy definition: They were small media players, created by Tiger Electronics in 1999. They played about a minute of lo-fi stereo recordings (typically just a chorus or two). They were awesome — and totally the influenced the way we’d listen to music in the years to come (on the cusp of a new millennium!).


It was basically the link between the cassette single and the MP3. Seriously. Think about it.

4. They were literally the best thing to happen to music listening in the early ’00s.

7. Literally nothing is more 2000 than this.

It’s like a Limited Too exploded.


Lizzie McGuire had a pop music career! Remember?!?

9. You couldn’t really control the volume on these things…

Step one: Shove device close to ear. Step two: Bust a move.

11. They came in a bunch of cool colors.

Beyoncé wasn’t going anywhere, y’all.

13. Literally.

Queen Bey, rocking your world since the days of the Hit Clip.

14. There weren’t too many song choices, but all of them were total jams.

18. It didn’t bother you that the commercials made no sense…

19. …because they led us to believe Dream Street would be a thing.

...because they led us to believe Dream Street would be a thing.

Pretty sure no one remembers this band, but, holy crap, how excited would you be if you found this IRL?!

20. Also, they were kinda, like, mad expensive.

You couldn’t care less, but I’m sure your mom did. There came a point when she wouldn’t buy them for you anymore, and that’s probably the day your childhood died.

21. So then they got, like, really fancy?

So then they got, like, really fancy?

I never had one of these, but I’m totes jealous of everyone who did.

22. Hit Clip Alarm Clock!

If you were the luckiest child of all time, you had one of these.

23. How is this not still sold at Claire’s?

How is this not still sold at Claire's?

This totally looks like a device from Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century. (Also, what kind of a guitar has three strings? I’ll tell you: the one where you DGAF because you’re listening to the Backstreet Boys.)

25. In 2002, the Dance Bot happened.

In 2002, the Dance Bot happened.

It’s hard to believe anyone had this thing. It cost like $30 and had two left feet!

26. Eventually they graduated onward to make MiniDiscs.

27. Look how cute!

Look how cute!

Seriously, who needs CDs or MP3s when you can have these tiny things that are basically impossible to keep track of?

28. The beginning of the end.

The beginning of the end.

29. They weren’t very loud, but man, did they make the school-bus ride enjoyable.

There were only about 30 clips to choose from (all of the Top 40 female pop star/boy band variety), so everyone listened to the same music. Win-win.

30. Too bad they sound like this when you try to play them today.


That’s supposed to be Backstreet Boys’ “The Shape of My Heart.”

31. Here’s to you, Hit Clips!

Here's to you, Hit Clips!

Remember Dream?

32. May you always make us feel like dancing forever.
