"I Want You Back" ranks number 120 on Rolling Stone's list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. In 2006, Pitchfork Media named it the second best song of the 1960s, adding that the chorus contains "possibly the best chord progression in pop music history."

In 1999, "I Want You Back" was also inducted in Grammy Hall of Fame.
