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.

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.
If you almost climbed through your TV when the Kids' Choice Awards aired to steal Ariana Grande's '90s Nickelodeon-themed purse or have recently felt the overwhelming urge to start papering your walls with centerfold posters from Tiger Beat magazine, you're not alone. The '90s have come back with a vengeance.
It's a battle of the best karaoke pop songs! Picture it: You're out on a night on the town with your friends, and someone inevitably decides to hit up some good, old-fashioned karaoke. Would you go for a classic, like Prince's 'Kiss'? How about a '90s-era smash like Backstreet Boys' 'I Want It That Way' or 'Baby One More Time' by Britney Spears? Or maybe Justin Bieber's 'Baby' or Katy Perry's anthemic 'Firework' is more your speed. But of course, you can't forget modern pop staples like Miley Cyrus' 'Wrecking Ball' and Lorde's 'Royals'... decisions, decisions! Which song would you rather sing at karaoke?
Update: We hate to be the bearers of bad news, but it looks like this epic world tour was just to good to be true. According to MTV News, a rep for BSB stated that the BSB/Spice Girls world tour is a no-go. (We'll just be over here, crying into our '90s-era posters.)
It's like all of our '90s nostalgia was gearing up for this moment: the Backstreet Boys and the Spice Girls may be doing a reunion tour together! Brian Littrell of BSB was the one to allegedly reveal the Internet-breaking news himself.
