A History of "MTV Spring Break," Part 3: The 00s

Yesterday in our History of "MTV Spring Break," Pt. 2: The 90s, we showed you bikini contests, No Doubt performing "Just A Girl" and old-school Remote Control hosted by Colin Quinn and today: The 00s.

Spring Break during the Naughty Aughties (c. 2000-2010) was also the Cancun era with the Mexican party town playing host six times (other locales included Panama City Beach, Miami, Sunny Isles Beach, Acapulco and Las Vegas in 2011).  Booty shaking and baby making went down courtesy of a soundtrack featuring Sisqo's "Thong Song" (2000), Missy Elliott's "Work It" (2003), and Young Money's "Bedrock" (2010) among other jams.  Check out these clips and more below!
