I don’t know how to start this post because there’s so much emotion running through my head right now. Last night was one of the greatest nights of my life. What did I do? I went to a Backstreet Boys concert at the Grove (for those of you outside of Los Angeles, the Grove is a really, really beautiful…mall). While it might have been a low for the boy band, it was definitely a high for the fans. The crowd was more vibrant than I expected. I watched a guy take his shirt off and scream his number to randoms at some point. That was nice. Pretty much any ’90s boy band should elicit that kind of response, though. N’Sync, 98 Degrees, Hanson, they all should make one’s body feel like it has been lifted into the air and transformed into some orb of ethereal beauty. Let’s go through the list of ’90s boy bands in their glory days. Try not to die. I’ll do the same.

N’Sync: They were too lazy to just call themselves ‘In Sync’ but they weren’t too lazy to attach themselves to strings and look like dolls and then dramatically unattach themselves from strings mid-music video.

98 degrees: I think most of their band photos include them pointing at things that aren’t seen in the shot. What are they always so interested in? The world wants to know.

Idolator

LFO: I thought they only did one song and then proceeded to drop off the face of the earth and frosted their tips. Apparently they made other songs, too. Who knew?!

Hanson: Their hit song is titled “MMMBop,” so you know it’s good.

DIRT

One of our office dogs, Dirt, modeled my Backstreet Boys tee the day after the concert when I was dealing with Post Traumatic Boy Band Disorder.

Chris Rellas is Nasty Gal’s Copywriting Intern. He wants to turn into Rick Owens by the time he is 30, but will settle for a life that resembles Vivienne Westwood’s, Ann Demeulemeester’s, or one of Andrew Mukamal’s leather boots.
