Among the memorable artists to release chart-topping tracks in 2005 were Kanye West ("Gold Digger"), The Killers ("Mr. Brightside"), Akon and Young Jeezy ("Soul Survivor"), Green Day ("Boulevard of Broken Dreams") and Nickelback ("Photograph"). For other artists, however, 2005 brought mainstream attention that was soon taken away. These acts might have been abandoned with the playlists that once filled our fifth-generation iPods and MobiBLU cubes, but each played an important role in our lives back then. To celebrate the ninth birthday of The Huffington Post, let's take a moment to honor these nine forgotten artists from 2005:

1. Bo Bice

2. D4L

3. The Click Five

4. Chamillionaire

5. Amerie

6. Pretty Ricky

7. Brooke Valentine

8. Mike Jones

9. Crazy Frog
