Before there was "Somebody That I Used To Know" or "We Are Young", there was the whistlin' hipster pop of "Young Folks". Yes, you definitely remember that song. The ubiquitous track off their album Writer's Block became the anthem for living young, wild and free 2006-2007, and launching Swedish indie group Peter, Bjorn & John to international recognition. Not to mention the song was used repeatedly in commercials and soundtracks, plus was declared the #1 song of 2007 by iTunes.

The boys rode the wave all the way to Austin, TX for SXSW in 2007, and sat down for an exclusive acoustic set for Y! Music! Watch Peter Bjorn And John perform their mega-hit "Young Folks":
