It’s battle of the bands, as we go back through the decades to find the photos of ‘N Sync and the Backstreet Boys that they really don’t want us to remember.
It’s no secret that at Hypable, we love boy bands. But we were sad to see in all the recent talk of reunions and comeback tours that one major point has been passed by. The Backstreet Boys recently celebrated their 20th anniversary as a band, and ‘N Sync “reuinited” (we use that term loosely) at the VMAs. So what was the disappointment?
These days, they only wear suits.
Seriously. It’s like they are ashamed of their denim/velour/bedazzled past. Like they want us to forget about that time they dyed their hair pink, or all wore matching outfits, or rocked some silver lipstick.
So we are grateful to have these 23 beautiful photos, documenting the glory years of these (then) teen sensations. Who wants to see Justin Timberlake in a suit and tie (get it?)? We would much rather reminisce about that time he got cornrows.
‘N Sync and the Backstreet Boys might wish these weren’t around anymore – but we sure are glad that they are.
