1998 Song of the Year - "Tearin' Up My Heart" by NSYNC

by Paul Siciliano


So by the late 1990s, boy bands were making a come back.  I have to admit I really was not into that many boy bands - but I totally loved N'Sync.  The same cannot be said of the Backstreet Boys.  N'Sync's music was faster paced and Justin Timberlake and JC Chasez have better voices. 

At the same time, some of the guys were cute.  Even though I like Timberlake's music, I actually like Chasez's music more.  That puts me in the great minority.  Anyway, boy band pop type music, along with the same from female singers like Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera, will come to dominate the scene for the next five years. 

I can't believe how young everyone looks in the video, even Chris Kirkpatrick who is probably like 25 at this point.  He is easily the oldest.
