Backstreet Is Back, Which Should Make Us All Think Of Deeper Things

     

    There will be no Backstreet hatred found here. Taking a look at Nick Carter and his bandmates in this video shows that there is a significant amount of pathos to be found in the retread of a boy band. While the members of N’Sync have found some level of success, Backstreet is, forever, Backstreet. They have nowhere else to go. It’s fitting that the band is touring around Japan in the video for “Bigger.” Odds are they might not realize it, but the closest analogue to their return is Bill Murray’s character in Lost in Translation. They might genuinely want to make music, but  they’re probably trying not to think that this kind of pop music is all they’ll ever have the opportunity to make. It would be easy to make a snarky joke about the band, but their fate should be sobering. While we are allowed to evolve, it will always be the Nineties for them. [Idolator]
