In the months leading up to Worlds 2016, we devastatingly found out that all-star cheerleading music was about to change forever. The cheerleading Gods have spoken and it’s official, never again will we hear our favorite songs in our beloved cheer mixes. No snippets, no covers, nothing.

Sure, cheer music has changed a lot over the years and producers are incredibly talented. Fancy voiceovers and raps have become more common and fewer songs are used in almost every mix. But, the covers and brief clips of our favorite songs were critical to a mix becoming a bop, or even an ANTHEM. I’m being ridiculous, but you get the point.

And now, it only seems appropriate to pay tribute to the music that we’ve all come to know and love before the new season begins.

Here are some of the best cheer mixes I could find in the depths of Soundcloud and YouTube.
