Backstreet Boys Announce Label Split, Tour, Despite Their Utter Irrelevance

Backstreet-boys-unbreakable  Wait, what? Seriously? These guys are still around? 

The remaining four members of Backstreet Boys have just announced their release from Jive Records. Apparently the split was amicable, and clearly neither party was doing anything for the other. From the horses' mouths:

"This is the best thing, at the best time that could have ever happened for us," says Brian Littrell. "We are confident in the future of our band, and are looking forward to the new things to come. 2011 is going to be a great year for us!''

Actually, I'm pretty sure the best thing that could have happened to you guys is if you'd broken up about eight years ago and pursued solo careers a la *NSYNC, because I'm pretty sure your old fan base has outgrown boy bands, and there's no way you can compete with Bieber and the Jonas Brothers for the next generation of screaming teens.

Backstreet Boys launch their latest tour May 29 in Miami for the five of you reading who are actually interested in paying money for that shit.

Suzy Q

Shouldn't they be the Backstreet Mens by now?


I know that the BsB fanclub is not as big over there in the states - but over here in europe, especially sweden, they were and are still pretty huge.

I went to two of their concerts. In one of them Kevin (the one who left the band) pointed at me and waved and I nearly wet myself.

Anyway what I am trying to say is:



The other day, as I was driving to work, "I Want It That Way" came on the radio. I cranked it up, and sang along at the top of my lungs. With the windows open.

You're welcome, fellow users of that road. You're welcome.


I'm going to see them here in DC in a few days, and I can't wait. Irrelevant though they may be, it's still pretty exciting to see the group you loved and never got to see as a teen. I only pray they do a lot of their hits and don't make the show predominantly their new stuff, because who cares about the new stuff? We want "Quit Playing Games With My Heart"!


Hey buddy. You know I adore you but do me a favor and speak for yourself...
