Can you believe that it has been 18 years since the Backstreet Boys released their smash hit “I Want It That Way”. I actually can believe it, this one doesn’t make me feel that old because I have been a fan of these guys since the tender age of 5.

If you don’t think that this is one of the greatest pop songs of all time you are out of your mind and you don’t know pop. That simple.

This song got them nominated for a Grammy and got them the top spot on TRL for a very long time.

Even if you can’t appreciate the song you can appreciate the music video. I am still angry I wasn’t one of the superfans that were cast in the airplane hanger. We also need to appreciate the all white outfits and choreographed dancing, things you just don’t see anymore.

Happy birthday “I Want It That Way” although I think it is their most overrated song, I still scream sing whenever it comes on.

A.J. McLean & Joey Fatone Sing “I Want It That Way” !

It looks like we can finally wave the white flag in one of the most heated debates of all time. You know what I am talking about, *NSYNC  vs BSB . If you were anywhere between the ages of 6-21 in the late 90’s you know what I am talking about. At the end of the day we all know that Backstreet Boys are superior so that’s really all that matters.

Anyway, last night Joey Fatone threw himself an absolute rager for his 40th birthday party. It was in Orlando where both NSYNC and Backstreet Boys got their start from. Joey still calls it home and that’s where his hot dog stand is based out of, so he is usually down there!

A.J. showed up to party with Joey though and the two ended up singing “I Want It That Way”, one of the biggest songs to come out of the 90’s.

Nostalgia, isn’t it great?

It’s also kind of weird hearing Joey singing, considering it was always JC or Justin, the guy has pipes! Too bad there weren’t more solos for Joey!

The Backstreet Boys’ “I Want It That Way” Had An Alternative Version Called “No Goodbye”

Listen I am probably one of the biggest Backstreet Boy fans that you’ll ever meet, I mean that too. I can tell you a ton of facts about BSB but this is something that is totally weird. Obviously “I Want It That Way” makes no sense what so ever. Everyone knows that, hell even the boys know it! They opened up to Huffington Post about it, go read that if you want to, but I want to talk to talk about the two different versions that are just coming to life!

After nearly 20 years (yikes) BSB decided to unearth a song called “No Goodbyes” which was almost released instead of “I Want It That Way”.\

Check out both songs below and compare the two!

Obviously “No Goodbyes” makes way more sense but I am glad they stuck with “I Want It That Way”.

Also, I am so happy that BSB is all over the place right now. The best boy band of all time for a reason!

The Backstreet Boys & Meghan Trainor Sing ‘I Want It That Way’

I am very upset that ABC doesn’t have the whole performance on Youtube, what kind of monster are you ABC?

How jealous am I of Meghan Trainor though? I am really fucking jealous. I will say that she did a great job though. As a lifelong BSB fan I have to give her credit for being able to keep up, dance, and look good while doing it.

Brian’s voice is so strained, my poor B-Rok. If anyone wants to say anything engative about his voice, I will ruin you, remember that.

The Backstreet Boys also sang ‘Everybody’ so all around it was a great night for everyone! Hanson, Jewel, and Tori Kelly were all also featured on this episode!

Also check out the dancing, and singing live. That is how it is done. I am looking at you young performers. You don’t need a backtrack you just need to be able to do cardio and sing. So work on it.

17 Years Ago ‘I Want It That Way’ Came Out

I think that everyone can agree that ‘I Want It That Way’ changed the way that we listen to pop music. It is by far one of the biggest pop songs of all time. The Backstreet Boys made history with that song. I mean, let’s be real, that song alone makes them better than NSYNC. Yeah I said it!

Anyway, I have to say it is scary to think that seniors in high school at the same age as this song but I will get over it. Thank you Backstreet Boys for cranking out hit after hit for so long. I am glad that I grew up during the prime of pop music.
