"They say 2000-0-0 party over, oops, out of time,
so tonight I'm gonna party like it's 1999"

to party like there's no tomorrow. Live like today's your last. In the 1983 Prince hit "1999" he refers to "2000-0-0 party over, oops - out ot time" so tonight he "parties like it's 1999". This became a catch phrase in the American lexicon.
After the Pink Floyd concert we walked over to the campus strip, hit the bars and restaurants, drank like fish and generally we decided to party like it's 1999.

A verb meaning to party like you believe it's the end of an era; similar to the way people partied on New Years in '99 because they thought there would be a massive computer crash.

An expression originated from the 1982 hit "1999" by Prince, it was originally used to mean "to have the wildest party of your life", like you would if you were to celebrate the opening of a new millennium.
It became obsolete after 1999, so, if now you express your intentions to "party like it's 1999", people will believe you want to celebrate by listening to music like "La Flaca" and "Mambo Number 5", cracking jokes about Monica Lewinsky, playing with a Playstation 1 and talking about The Matrix like "OMG TEH BEST MOVIE EVAR!!!111"
Before 1999:
Joe: Come on, dude, let's party like it's 1999!
Bob: Yeahhh!!!

In 1999:
Joe: Come on, dude, let's party like it's 1999!
Bob: WTF? It IS 1999!

After 1999:
Joe: Come on, dude, let's party like it's 1999!
Bob: Nah, I'm not into this nostalgia stuff.
