Before skyrocketing to A-list celebrity fame, before the whole Taylor Swift relationship, and before all the world-wide DJing gigs, Calvin Harris was just a dude trying to make it in the music industry. Sure, he’s a full fledged mega hottie now:

But let us not forget that when he was just bursting onto the music scene, he was basically our high school alt-rock absolute dream bae.

Seriously, how cute is he with his button-down and pullover combo? #thedream

OMG that emo-boy shaggy haircut! We’re just imagining him doing that little hair flip every ’00s rocker did!

That baby pink accent color with a slick suit on the red carpet? Amazing!

Ah, yes. The kinda-scruffy look really works for him here. ’00s Calvin Harris = bae.
