It’s hard to believe 2007 was a full decade ago. This was the time when the housing bubble popped, Barry Bonds “broke” the all time home-run record, the release of the iconic Iphone and the tragedy of the Virginia Tech Massacre highlighted the year. Aside from the big events, there were several movies, TV Shows and albums that forever changed pop culture – and are still being talked about – ten years later.
