I Don’t Know How To Feel About This Rock Cover Of “Bye Bye Bye”

Our Last Night Sings NSYNC
Where Are Justin And JC When You Need Them?

Our Last Night does some pretty sweet covers of popular songs like “Skyfall” and “Wrecking Ball,” and their latest creation is this rock version of N*SYNC’s “Bye Bye Bye” featuring Cody Carson of the band Set It Off. When you think about the lyrics, “Bye Bye Bye” is a way angrier song than Justin, Lance, JC and those other two made it out to be, so it makes sense for it to be performed with a bit of an edge. That said, I just don’t know if I can love any version of this song quite like I love the original. [Huffington Post]

O-Town Releases New Single, And I’ve Never Missed Ashley Parker Angel More

You guys. It happened. O-Town has released their first single since announcing they were reuniting as a foursome without Ashley Parker Angel. The song, “Skydive,” is a mid-tempo jam off their upcoming album, Lines & Circles, which is set to be released on August 3rd. It doesn’t hold a candle to the Backstreet Boys’ new music (obviously), but it’s a solid boy band song (think One Direction on mild sedatives). The only thing is … after listening to it, I’m really, really feeling the absence of Ashley Parker Angel. Sigh. Turns out even a 70-piece orchestra can’t replace him. Listen below and see if you can wrap your head around O-Town Minus Ashley.

O-Town Is Reuniting, But Without Ashley Parker Angel?!?!

O-Town Reuniting Without Ashley Parker Angel

O-Town was the by far the best boy band ever created on a reality show called “Making The Band” in the year 2000. We all enjoyed their vocal (and hair) stylings until 2003, when the band broke up, leaving the world a dark, sad, lonely place where fans could only ask, “Why? Whyyyyy?” while listening to “Liquid Dreams” on repeat and crying. (Not that I did that.) (I totally did.) Today, our long national nightmare comes to an end: O-Town has announced they are reuniting and working on a new album. Hooray! Rejoice! But wait, there’s a catch. The new O-Town will be a smaller and significantly less blonde group, because Ashley Parker Angel has opted not to renew his O-Town membership card. This news brings up many important questions, most pressingly: What is O-Town without Ashley Parker Angel? What is life without Ashley Parker Angel? Doesn’t this go against the message of their biggest hit, “All Or Nothing”? I need to go lie down. Check out the band’s reunion announcement video after the jump, if you feel emotionally ready for it. Keep reading »

Be Still, My ’90s Fangirl Heart: Backstreet Boys Announce North American Tour With Avril Lavigne

Backstreet Boys Announce Tour With Avril Lavigne

Any day that the Backstreet Boys announce a new tour is a great day, but when they announce a North American tour to support one of their best albums ever, with Avril fucking Lavigne as a special guest, well, today just became the best day of my life. As awesome as the Backstreet Boys/New Kids On The Block tour was, my inner child (who is actually my inner teen, forever trapped in 1998, listening to “Complicated” on repeat, wishing she could fit into L.E.I. flare jeans) is way more stoked about this one. Tickets go on sale March 21st, and the tour kicks off in Canada on May 3rd, with the first American stop in Seattle on May 22nd. So far I’m not seeing any dates in Nashville, which is severely disappointing, but I guess that means a road trip to Chicago is in order. Check out the list of US tour dates after the jump!

Justin Timberlake Is Ready To Form An *NSYNC/One Direction Supergroup

“Really, can 10 of those hairstyles be on the same stage? I think we already know the answer. We should just form some super group. It’d be hilarious. What I have seen [of One Direction], I like them. They seem grounded to me, I like that about them.”

– Ex-boy-bander Justin Timberlake gave the best response ever when asked for his thoughts on One Direction, the harmonizing heartthrobs of the moment. Not only does he approve of the young lads’ “grounded” attitudes, he proposed forming an *NSYNC/One Direction supergroup, which I think boy band fans of past and present can all agree would be AMAZING. [Perez Hilton]

P.S. Chris Kirkpatrick’s face in the photo above is the best thing that’s ever happened to me. See what I mean, after the jump… Keep reading »

Huuuuuuuuge news for those of us who have been halfheartedly cheering Justin Timberlake’s rise to solo stardom while secretly yearning for JC Chasez’s parachute pants, Chris Kirkpatrick’s dreadlocks, Lance Bass’s frosted tips, and Joey Fatone’s glorious goatee: the band is getting back together. Yes, really! According to very credible sounding rumors, *NSYNC will be reuniting for a performance at this Sunday’s VMAs. [I just had to look up how to correctly spell/capitalize *NSYNC, FYI. -- Amelia] Between this and BSB’s awesome new album, my 90s fangirl heart is exploding. Will they wear matching overalls? Will Justin bust out his ramen hair for old time’s sake? What do you guys think they will sing? I’m hoping for something classic and upbeat like “Bye Bye Bye” (complete with marionette strings, please!) followed by a tearjerker ballad like “God Must Have Spent A Little More Time On You.” I’m already crying. Cannot. Wait. [New York Post]

BSB In A World Like This
Backstreet's Back, Alright!

You guys, HUGE NEWS. The Backstreet Boys released a new single from their 9th album, In A World Like This, and even the cool kids think it’s good! Obviously, as a lifelong BSB fangirl, I experienced a lot of emotions while listening to it and watching the nostalgia-filled lyric video, all of which I have transcribed in real time below.

Teen sorta sensation Aaron Carter, perhaps best known as little brother of Backstreet Boy Nick Carter, is now 25 and touring the country on his “After Party” tour. On a stop in Boston, Carter claims he was jumped and beaten by four men, and he posted a couple Instagram photos of himself looking busted to prove it. What sparked the altercation? According to Carter, it was a classic boy band turf war. Seriously. Keep reading »

Tomorrow is the Backstreet Boys’ 20th(!) anniversary. Yep, BSB has been around for two decades, and I have been a die-hard fan for pretty much that entire time. In fact, at one point my deep love for AJ McLean even informed my religious beliefs (I prayed every night for his hand in marriage). It seems like every week a new boy band emerges and then fades into obscurity just as quickly. So what’s the secret to BSB’s longevity? Well, besides being genuinely talented, charismatic, and appreciative of their fans, I’ve put together a list of 10 other reasons they’ve been around so long, illustrated by GIFs, obviously. Up-and-coming boy bands might want to take notes… Keep reading »

Boy Band Orgy: Boyz II Men, New Kids On The Block, And 98 Degrees Are Going On Tour Together

Yes, you read the headline right. No, this is not a drill. Yes, this is real life. No, you’re not dreaming. Three of the most amazing boy bands of yesteryear are joining forces for a summer tour. On yesterday’s episode of the “The View,” the New Kids On The Block made the bombshell announcement that they’ll be touring with fellow dreamy, aging crooners 98 Degrees and Boyz II Men. Is this a government experiment to see how much nostalgia the average 30-year-old woman can endure before spontaneously combusting? Most likely. But still, I’ll definitely be in the crowd, screaming my head off and singing along to “Because Of You,” “The Right Stuff,” and “Motownphilly.” Will you? Check out the tourdates after the jump!
