It's official: The future is now. October 21, 2015 was the day Marty McFly travels to in Back to the Future II, sent by "Doc" Emmett Brown to save Marty's kids. And while that seemed so, SO long ago when the film first premiered in 1989, we're here now — and there's not a flying car in sight. We STILL haven't perfected a hoverboard, though the film's inspired many engineers to try. But lucky for us all, the trilogy starring Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd still totally holds up!

In celebration of the past, the present and the present-future, listen to a playlist of songs that were hits on this date 30 years ago. It features Back to the Future soundtrack artists Huey Lewis and the News, Whitney Houston, Stevie Wonder and more.

So step into our time machine, and prepare to go back in tiiiiiime...
