Full House left an indelible stamp on the psyche of a generation, with the show's quirky moments and catchphrases embedding themselves into the deepest part of every '90s kids' lizard brain. To this day, merely uttering "cut it out", "have mercy", or "how rude" is enough to set off a Proustian flood of memory in most millennial minds. It should come as no surprise then that references within the show would have just as much sticking power — like these 11 songs that will make you think of Full House next time you hear them, guaranteed.
Featuring numerous musical guest stars and even band-in-residence The Rippers (later Hot Daddy and the Monkey Puppets, a name that just rolls off the tongue), music marked key moments throughout Full House's original eight-season run. Sometimes songs were the centerpiece of an episode, like when The Rippers kicked Jesse to the curb and their new song "April Girls"became a Full House in-show hit, much to Jesse's chagrin. Other times they were the catalyst for a heartwarming moment, like when DJ cut school to see fictional idol Stacey Q, only to get caught by Danny (don't worry, lessons were learned).
The songs here all existed in the real world well before hitting the airwaves, but were made their own by the Tanner family and friends. If you can hear these without thinking back fondly, you're in big trouble, mister.
