The best-selling boy band in history, the Backstreet Boys became superstars in the ’90s and are still going strong. Formed in Orlando, Fla., in 1993, BSB consists of A.J. McLean, Howie Dorough, Nick Carter, Kevin Richardson and Brian Littrell. Their self-titled debut U.S. album was released in 1997 and peaked at No. 4 on the Billboard 200. Hits including ‘Quit Playing Games (With My Heart)’ and ‘As Long as You Love Me’ led to the album’s eventually being certified an amazing 14-times platinum. Their next full-length release, 1999’s ‘Millennium,’ featuring the worldwide smash single ‘I Want It That Way,’ nearly equaled the feat, at 13-times platinum. Richardson left the group in 2006, while the group went on to record two albums without him. He returned to the fold in 2012, in time to celebrate BSB’s 20th anniversary.
As a special treat for fans, Michael Buble has been doing song requests on Instagram for his pre-show warmups during his world tour. Some of the more recent examples include covers of *NSYNC, Backstreet Boys, Kanye West and Jason Mraz.
Thanks in part to the recent trend of boy band revivals, 2014 is starting to feel like 1997 all over again, rivalries and feuds included. Verbal shots were fired between 'N SYNC’s Joey Fatone and the Backstreet Boys’ Nick Carter, but at least one member of this conflict is ready to forgive and forget for old times’ sake.
Get ready to shriek, NKOTBSB fans -- we have some unbelievable news for you! Nick Carter and Jordan Knight have just announced that they will be releasing an album together and embarking on a fall tour. Say whaaaat!
With the recent resurgence of boy bands both new and old, we've decided to look back at our favorite boy bands of the '90s, the decade where those sweet, sweet harmonies (and even sweeter dance moves) all really started.
It may be 2014 but the '90s rivalry of Backstreet Boys vs. *NSYNC has been briefly resurrected through a war of words started by *NSYNC alum Joey Fatone. Yesterday, Backstreet Boys' Nick Carter took to Twitter to respond to Fatone's comments.
Joey Fatone's new title is "Crusher and Destroyer of Dreams." The former member of 'N Sync took all of a minute to crush the hopes and dreams of 'N Sync fans the world over and to throw a little shade at Backstreet Boys' doorstep.
